Orthopaedic Assessment Edmonton | Sherwood Park

How can an Orthopaedic Assessment help you?

Exploring your symptoms with a thorough full body assessment may help shed light on your overall condition and pinpoint underlying issues. Your therapist’s evaluation will explain how your soft tissues relate to your body’s health and how injuries can occur – as well as provide a guide on how to best manage these situations. If done before a massage appointment, an orthopaedic assessment will ensure your therapist fully understands your precise situation, and it will give them the time to review your detailed history. Your therapist will also provide stretches and strengthening techniques especially made for you. Together, you create a personalized treatment plan designed to get you back on the right path to a healthy, pain free life.
