An orthopaedic assessment is a comprehensive evaluation of your musculoskeletal condition, soft tissue health, range of motion, and manual resistance which helps shed light on your overall condition and pinpoint underlying issues. The diagnosis and determination of a treatment regimen is a skillset our therapists have acquired through extensive training and experience. Their 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 you’ve suffered a sports injury or have been in an accident, it is highly recommended that you book an orthopaedic assessment prior to beginning a therapeutic massage. This is important as it will ensure your therapist fully understands your precise situation, and it will give them the time to review your detailed history. As part of the assessment, we’ll discuss such things as ongoing problems and imbalances, and your therapist will also provide stretches and strengthening techniques especially made for you. Together we’ll create a personalized treatment plan designed to get you back on the right path to a healthy, pain free body.

Please be aware that additional fees may be applied for third party forms. Legal authorization for release of medical information to a doctor, medical facility or insurance company may also be required.
