The purpose of the initial consultation is to determine the cause of the condition, rather than simply looking to treat the symptoms.
You will be given the diagnosis (what is wrong), details of treatment and the prognosis (how long it will take) all in plain, easy to understand language. You will also be given additional information such as postural advice as well as information on an exercise programme to complement your treatment. If you have any questions relating to this or at any other time, feel free to ask.
If there are instances that require further investigation (e.g. laboratory testing, X-Rays, MRIs) you will be referred as necessary.
