About Your Physiotherapy Examination
A thorough—but gentle—assessment of your condition will usually be performed on your first visit. This assessment will consist of an interview, as well as a physical examination, including touch, in order to determine whether you have a condition that Brian can help you with.
The physical examination may have two parts. It will usually consist of a conventional orthopaedic physiotherapy examination to assess your posture and breathing, as well as to see how well you move. A second component may include a holistically oriented (whole person) examination. This light touch approach will examine your body’s life energy and fascia (soft) tissue systems. Trauma-related pulling, compression or twists can often be identified at a location that is different than where you hurt. As much as possible, the purpose here is to identify the cause of the dysfunction and pain from a mechanical and fascial standpoint.
All of this information will be put together in order to establish an overall clinical picture.
