Assessment and Treatment
It is essential to perform a physical assessment before each treatment. This helps to establish causative factors of pathology, reproduce the patients’ pain/symptoms, to help establish the correct assessment and to monitor the effectiveness of any treatment performed.
The role of a massage therapist is not to diagnose illness, but to perform specific assessments related to the reason for presentation, i.e.: musculoskeletal dysfunction. We believe that recovery does not occur in isolation. Referral to other health practitioners may be discussed in order to get the best health outcome.
