Assessment and Case History
Pain demands an explanation! So if you’re suffering from musculoskeletal pain, a comprehensive physical assessment will help me provide you with an understandable explanation of the possible causes and contributing factors to your symptoms.
By firstly listening to you and gathering key information, I will then create a bespoke physical assessment. Based on your information and my findings, I will design an individualized treatment plan around your goals.
If you’re suffering from acute pain or injury, gentle osteopathic techniques and acupuncture can help to immediately reduce pain intensity. When you feel ready, we will begin to practice specific and progressive movement patterns which will re establish your confidence, strength and function in the injured area. Dietary analysis will also be offered in order to enhance the healing process.
If you’re suffering from persistent or chronic pain, I will help you understand how and why pain is produced and also introduce you to effective strategies that will help you overcome the burden of conditions such as non specific low back pain.
The objective of treatment is to empower you with the reassurance, confidence, motivation and knowledge to maintain a pain free and robust state of health.
