Complaint and Medical History
Once you have arrived for your appointment, the therapist will take enough time to review your presenting complaint and your medical history. This includes any previous complaints, illnesses, accidents, family history, past treatments, past diagnostic interventions (X-ray / CT / MRI), and medications. All this will aid us in assessing the root of your problem.
Once everything has been said, the therapist will do a thorough physical examination of your musculoskeletal system. This includes orthopedic, neurological, and in part, kinesiological tests to assess the current state of your wellbeing.
Report of Findings
After all tests have been conducted, you will be talked thru these findings, and a tailored treatment plan will be carefully explained.
The therapist will let you know what and how they will treat you, so if there are any queries, please do not hesitate to ask. It is essential that you understand the treatment plan, and you will also be asked to participate in given exercises to achieve an optimal outcome.
Just as you must be actively involved in the treatment plan, it is in our interest to discuss your case with the other therapists in our practice if needed. This underlines our integrative approach, which has proven very effective.
