A Musculoskeletal Physician will want to know about you current problem as well as previous problems you may have had relating to your bones and joints. The doctor will ask how the affected body part impairs your function, so they can work out the best way to proceed - deciding on further tests and possible management.
The Musculoskeletal Physician will examine the affected body part in detail. They usually begin by looking at the area - if it is your back, hip or shoulder you may have to partially undress. They then feel the area and finally move the area. They may perform some special tests to further assess the region and make a decision on appropriate further management.
HealthEngine is dedicated to helping patients and health practitioners connect. We believe that when we do this well, everyone benefits.
