Diagnosis is Crucial

 

A correct diagnosis is crucial to the resolution of your pain.  Without a specific diagnosis, treatment tends to be general rather than specifically targeted to your problem. A comprehensive plan to resolve your pain can be best formulated when the diagnosis is clear.

 

Assessment

 

Once your injury is determined, an evaluation of your problem and the potential causes is an important next step.

 

Understanding how your body functions and analysing movement patterns of the foot, lower limb and entire body is vital in order to get to the root cause of your injury and provide an optimal treatment plan.

 

Often our initial assessments often involve;

 

  • Diagnosis of injured structure

  • Strength & Flexibility Testing
  • Footwear Assessment
