- This will involve asking you to remove some of your clothing (e.g. down to your underwear) so that we can observe your posture and watch you do some movements.
- Any necessary medical tests will be done
- We will then palpate (feel) passive joint movements and muscle tone
- We will come to a diagnosis and talk this through with you.
