What to expect

A new patient consultation starts with a detailed case history. This is a great opportunity for the clinician to gain an insight into how the condition is affecting you and what your individual goals are for seeking their help. It also helps the clinician to begin formulating a diagnosis which will then guide their clinical examination that follows. This may include the application of orthopaedic tests as well as examining particular movements or activities that you find limited. After the examination your clinician will explain the detailed findings to you as well as discussing the treatment options available before commencing therapy.

Treatment
may include:

  • Manual therapy (such as massage and joint articulation or manipulation)
  • Rehabilitation and exercise prescription
  • Dry needling/acupuncture
  • Medical Kinesiology Taping
  • Pain science education

When beneficial, our experienced practitioners will suggest and appoint other members of the multidisciplinary team to provide a comprehensive and integrated treatment plan for your condition or injury. It may also be necessary to refer you for imaging or for a specialist consultant opinion. Acer House Practice has developed trusted affiliations with external medical professionals, and we ensure that we refer to the respective experts when deemed appropriate.
