The chat at the start
Adam will then take a case-history, which helps him to get a picture about what is going on and what might be the cause of the issue. This pre-assesment chat usually takes about 10-15 minutes.
After the chat, Adam will examine your posture and assess the range of motion of relevant joints. This is usually followed with some joint (orthopaedic) and nerve (neurological). Unfortunately, these tests are often provocative in nature, but they are important as they tell us what is causing the issue. If a therapist is not assessing they are guessing.
Tell you what it is
After a thorough physical examination, he will explain his findings to you. Where possible he will give you a clear-cut diagnosis. Please be aware that without an MRI scan Adams diagnosis cannot be 100%, but rest assured he will have checked for anything untowards.
A customised treatment will then take place, if you consent to said treatment. The treatment will be bespoke to the unique needs of the condition you have. As a general rule Adam starts gently and will always stop or tone it down if you feel uncomfortable or it is too much. Throughout the time that he treats, he is more than happy to tell you what has helped other people who have had a similar condition, recover quicker.
