During your initial assessment, we need to develop an understanding of your body and may ask questions about your medical history. Once we have gathered these details, we can begin testing your muscle movements and range of motion. This, in addition to your medical history, helps our Physiotherapists determine what muscles need the most attention and what can be done to help your body move in its best form.
