CONSULTATION & DIAGNOSIS
Your initial consultation begins with a physical examination to help identify the nature and severity of your injury, or condition. This is usually followed by the relevant diagnostic imaging tests, such as an X-Ray, or MRI scan.
Once he has made a diagnosis, Dr. Crosby will then determine the most appropriate treatment plan. And since the vast majority of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions do not require surgery, your treatment will typically consist of some form of physical therapy.
The primary form of non-surgical treatment for musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, physical therapy offers an extensive range of treatment options to manage your recovery.
POST-TREATMENT REHABILITATION EXERCISES
By increasing functional capacity, reducing symptoms, and improving your future well-being, a personal rehabilitation exercise programme can help you make a full recovery from your musculoskeletal injury, or condition.
Dr Crosby also specialises in exercise medicine and uses exercise prescription to treat a variety of medical conditions.
And whether it's for a medical condition, musculoskeletal rehabilitation, or functional fitness training, your personal exercise prescription will identify the type of exercise, the order and the intensity, as well as the frequency and duration.
