REMOTE CLIENT EVALUATION & TREATMENT PROGRAM
If we mutually agree to engage in treatment, the process begins with a review by Dr. Turner of your (more thorough) history. Then, Dr. Turner uses a logical algorithm to test certain neck postures, repeated neck movements, and sustained neck positions. Assessing your symptom changes in real-time, he identifies distinct patterns of pain and movement responses that are objective, reproducible, and reliable. He then empowers you to treat yourself effectively, safely restoring full mobility and function. By learning how to self-treat the current problem, you minimize the risk of recurrence, progressively heal, and rapidly self-treat any symptoms as they occur during your healing process.
Coaching videos, ongoing text interaction, symptom survey updates, and informative pdf’s make the process as smooth as possible. We use a protocoled system that follows a logical treatment algorithm. Follow-up sessions take about 30 minutes. Note that initial evaluations, if done remotely, take about an hour.

- Dr. Turner connects with you via Skype, FaceTime, or Google Duo. He reviews various things with you initially about your recent symptoms, response to your neck mechanics, % of the day with certain symptoms, etc. He then troubleshoots progressions with you, clarifies details he’s concerned about, and answers any questions that you might have.
- After an average of 15 minutes working with you, he has you work with his Coaching Specialist for another ~15 minutes. Though individualized, our system is protocoled, thorough, and covers numerous topics each session that we’ve found are best presented in a certain order and presentation style for easy learning. For instance, the Coach routinely sends pdf’s, video links, or whatever you need after that day’s session and further answers any questions that you might have.
- The Coach commonly interacts with you between sessions as well with status checks or specific concerns, typically via text or e-mail, per your preference.
