Can my physical therapist make a diagnosis for me?

When you come in for your first session at Movement Physiotherapy & Performance, your physical therapist will conduct a thorough evaluation that includes a detailed history and a thorough physical examination. The initial assessment determines the severity of your injury or illness and aids in determining the source of your symptoms and the factors contributing to your condition.

Physical therapists frequently collaborate with physicians to provide confirmation or potential contradictions to a diagnosis to ensure that your diagnosis is correct and your treatment plan is appropriate.
