Up on your first visit to the clinic we like to spend some time getting to know you. This will include an informal chat to find out some information on your current and past activities, a personal history and your reason for visiting the clinic. The personal history can include details on any past injuries, current medication and any related conditions, some details may not seem relevant to you, but can be very useful when making a diagnosis.
If you haven’t seen us for a few years we like to spend some time catching up and updating your history!
Check list for new or returning patients:
• List of current medications and dosage
• Details of diagnosed conditions (including dates)
• Details of operations and other medical procedures (including dates)
• Private medical insurance details (if applicable)
We will then run through a physical examination to get a good overview of how your body is functioning. This physical will include assessing your joint range of motion, muscle strength, gait, skin sensations, neurological function and perform some specific orthopaedic tests. If necessary we will also run through a cardiovascular, respiratory and abdominal screening. These tests will help us get an over all view of your health and help us with diagnosis.
We will then explain the findings from our tests and explain our full care plan – if you are still happy we can proceed with treatment.
