If you are unsure of the underlying reasons behind your symptoms or feel you need a more in depth assessment with your therapist before booking a massage appointment, an Orthopaedic Assessment is the right service for you.
An orthopaedic assessment is a comprehensive evaluation of your musculoskeletal condition, soft tissue health, range of motion, and manual resistance. Appointments range from 30 minutes to 90 minutes. The methods a therapist may choose to use to assess you are: Range of Motion exercises, Manual Resistance Testing, and a variety of other special tests depending on body region. As part of the assessment, your therapist and you will discuss ongoing problems and imbalances. Expect to answer questions regarding your health history including injuries and surgeries, leisure activities, work routines, areas of concern, and pain levels. These questions help the massage therapist align their treatment plan with your specific goals.
