Examination and Assessment

The No.1 Pain Relief Clinic is proud of its evidence based approach and Musculoskeletal Assessments. Prior to treatments a comprehensive consultation and assessment is performed which includes an Examination and Assessment process based on the Cyriax principle.

 

This involves a patient history to identify contra-indications and mechanism of injury. By evaluating the patient’s history and mechanism of injury carefully, clinical findings and clinical rational will help our team reach an appropriate informed decision.

Appropriate and effective informed decisions will enable our team how best to continue with regards to each individual condition and where necessary a multi-disciplinary team approach will be used.      

 

Musculoskeletal practice is applied significantly through evidence based physical rehabilitation (5) and outcome management (1-4). Based on this understanding and principle the No.1 Pain Relief Clinic records base-line measurements during the initial treatment. From then on the patient’s progress is closely monitored following subsequent visits to assess and evaluate sensitive changes and therapeutic interventions. (6)

Nick's experience and in depth clinical knowledge is second to none in both conventional and orthodox medicine. His no nonsense approach is thorough and I was very pleased with the treatments and after-care he provided for my aches and pains and injuries.

Nick was professional friendly and honest. I felt involved in all decisions he was making as my views were considered and incorporated into my rehabilitation plan. I would highly recommend Nick and his pain relief clinic services.
