This treatment involves comprehensive assessment and management based on logical principles. It focuses on your potential to self-manage and recovers your previous level of function. For this reason, it is often considered a self-help approach. An MDT clinician will assess and classify problems related to the musculoskeletal system, including the spine, extremity joints, muscles or tendons. The initial assessment is a key feature of the method and offers a safe and reliable format to reach an accurate classification. Here is what you can expect during the treatment:
We will conduct an assessment to determine the cause and effect(s) of your pain and if it will respond well to MDT
We will develop an appropriate management plan, considering the various factors that can influence your experience of pain and outline a recovery pathway
