"A correct diagnosis is three-fourths the remedy"
- Mahatma Gandhi
This statement resonates my approach as I aim to identify the SOURCE and CAUSE of pain and injury. Along with my colleagues who are Orthopedic Specialists and Specialist Physiotherapists, there is agreement that a thorough discussion of your injury history is 80% of the diagnostic process.
A clinical diagnosis is an evidence-informed hypothesis which answers the WHY. This can be made with a thorough discussion of your symptoms and specialised physical testing to confirm.
