At Cura online we take a detailed history via web forms and ask you to upload any reports if you have. In skype calls, the first part of the consultation is in the form of an interview, your problem is discussed, how your symptoms behave, how it feels and how it affects your life. We explore what treatments you have tried to date and find out how or why they may not have worked.
After this discussion there are often several clues indicating where your problem is coming from and the next goal is to reach the diagnosis with our movement evaluation just like we would do if you consulted us in regular clinic.
For movement evaluation, you will be asked to repeat certain movements and via video we can view where and why your movement is painful or restricted. It may include functional tests, like flexibility tasks, strength tests and postural assessment. However, we may refer you for further investigation (blood tests, MRI scans, x-rays etc.) if in case we suspect a more serious condition. We use all this information together to come to a diagnosis
