Please make sure you arrive in plenty of time in order to fill out your medical history form. We advise arriving 5-10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment in order to complete the form so this does not over run into your examination time.
Please fill out the form to the best of your ability. If you are not sure of any of the information being requested, just leave it blank and ask when you are in the examination room. Please give as much detail as you can in order to help us fully understand the underlying cause of your condition.
A case history will commence which involves taking details of any current or past history which will help us deliver the best care towards your condition.
A thorough examination will follow. Please be aware that although some of the tests may seem irrelevant to yourself, we thrive on excellence at Golf Injury Clinic and look at the ‘big picture’ which helps us connect the dots of your overall pain of complaint, not just the localised issue. Your examination will include an orthopaedic and neurological examination. These examinations may conclude that we wish you to be referred for further examinations such as an X-ray or MRI image.
Report of Findings
After completion of your examination, a discussion will follow explaining your results. This is where an opportunity to ask any questions regarding your diagnosis will be answered and the guideline for your treatment plan will be discussed.
After your examination and report of findings have been concluded and we are both happy to go ahead with starting to treat your condition, then treatment will commence. An explanation of the type of treatment you will be receiving will be given.
Please remember there is generally no quick fix. Patients often present to the clinic with years of micro trauma leading to their issues. If you are serious about becoming injury/pain free, be aware that the majority of patients need a series of visits with each treatment building on the previous one.
This may seem like a lot happens on your first visit. This is because it is important to explain everything in advance as it is a 2-way relationship. The more you understand, the better the results.
