What Should You Expect From An Evaluation?
The first step in the evaluation is a thorough medical history. You’ll first be asked some basic questions about your medical history and lifestyle.
A complete physical examination includes inspection and assessment of your range of motion. Your doctor will look for physical abnormalities, swelling, deformity, or muscle weakness, and check for tender areas.
Specific tests may be ordered to help identify the cause of your pain and any other problems.
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound
- Computed tomography (CT) scan
- Electrical studies. Your doctor may order a test, such as an EMG (electromyogram), to evaluate nerve function
After your evaluation and imaging tests, your doctor will talk with you about your diagnosis and explain what treatments are available. Together, you’ll decide on a personalized treatment plan based on your diagnosis, activity level, goals, and preferences.
Dr. Bruce will offer non-surgical options for the appropriate patient when indicated. Non-surgical treatment is always the first goal. Dr. Bruce will take her time with each patient to understand their concerns and develop a personalized treatment plan through a shared decision-making process.
