Physiotherapists are the right clinicians to consult for diagnosis and treatment if you are in pain. You can read about Physiotherapy here and if you are thinking there is a difference between different practitioners then you can read about the similarities between Physiotherapists, chiropractors and osteopaths here.

What happens at the appointment?
The process of examination and diagnosis:
We will first work out what the problem is by assessing the causes. This will involve a comprehensive discussion about the history of your complaint, how it started, what makes it better and worse, when does it hurt most in the day, does it disturb your sleep and do you have any other symptoms beside pain. We will also take a history of your past medical conditions. We will ask about medication and also about what sports and activites you like to do. We will ask about your home life ad what you do for a living, whether you drive to work and how often you take time off.
All of this is called the 'subjective history' and it is really important because it gives us the information to work out what is wrong. We may ask you a lot of questions and this is called differential questioning and helps us to diagnose one condition from another. It may follow the format of a medical examination similar to what you may experience when seeing a doctor or surgeon.
In this part of the assessment we will look at the range of bodily movement or joint. We will test muscle strength, neurological fuction and normal everyday movements. We will also perform some special tests to isolate certain structures. Physiotherapists are trained in delicate handling of the body. However, testing may cause some discomfort.
Sometimes it is necessary to ask your GP to arrange bloods tests or xrays. Physiotherapists are trained to look for common conditions and are particularly good at looking for problems not ameanable to physioatherapy. We can tell if you need to see a surgeon and will refer you to the GP should we deem this necessary.
