Musculoskeletal Problems

Musculoskeletal assessment and diagnosis

Your physiotherapist will ask you detailed questions about your condition and general health.

A physical examination, including a posture assessment, measurement of joint movement, joint palpation, muscle palpation, tests of muscle length/strength, ligament stability tests and nerve function tests will help diagnose your condition. We take into consideration findings from your investigations (eg x-ray, MRI, ultrasound).

We will discuss your diagnosis, answer your questions and together with you make a treatment plan to get relief from pain and to restore movement. During your rehabilitation you will learn about your condition and learn exercises and strategies to facilitate recovery and to help manage your condition in the long term as well as prevent future episodes of your problem.
