To gain a diagnosis, an assessment will be needed, both of the body and subjective history. The subjective history will include your main problem, signs and symptoms, mechanism of injury, aggravating and easing factors, 24hour pattern and your past medical history. This will then guide the therapist to specific body examinations and tests.
Once this has been completed, the therapist will educate you on what your diagnosis is, why you have this problem and what rehabilitation you will need to solve the problem. A structured rehabilitation plan will then be set according to healing timescales.
We can assess pain complaints all over the body. Joints include the list below and the muscles, ligaments and tendons around them.
