Assessment

At Kooyong Physiotherapy Centre we begin with an initial assessment of your condition.  This means thoroughly noting the history of your injury or condition including reviewing any relevant investigations that you may previously had that are relevant to the current condition. We will review any other investigations or other relevant medical history to understand how your health as a whole may be impacted by your current injury. The next stage is to perform a clinical examination. To assess the body through movement tests and determine which parts of your body are leading to your current problem. Once we have identified the problem then we can get started on the treatment.
