Diagnostic examination

The diagnostic examination is the starting point for working with the Medicofit clinic in the context of injury rehabilitation or personal training. We believe that we can only treat your pain and injury effectively or achieve good results with you in personal training when we get to know how your body functions. Sports diagnostics basically means measuring the strength and ratio between your muscles.

Diagnostic examination in the Medicofit clinic

At the diagnostic examination, the head of the physiotherapy department and the professional clinic supervisor will review your medical records and the results you received from your specialistic examination. The physiotherapist performs clinical tests of the injured area and an assessment of the mobility of your joints, and if you have a history of other injuries, the current state of the pathology is also checked, as well as the risk status of progression of the same is determined.

During the diagnostic examination, your posture and the position of the curves of your spine are assessed, and the performance of your basic movement patterns is examined in detail.

During the diagnostic examination, we measure imbalances in muscle strength, and imbalances in endurance strength of key muscle groups of the injured area.

As part of the diagnostic examination, the adjacent musculoskeletal structures to the injury are also examined, as they are often affected by the incorrect movement compensations that accompany any injury. When examining the adjacent joints, we also perform a functional assessment and measure the strength of the entire kinetic chain of the muscles involving the injured segment.

As part of the diagnostic examination, we write a professional diagnostic report, which gives you an individual rehabilitation strategy, which we will implement with you at the Medicofit clinic, guidelines for preventive exercise and the results of muscle imbalance measurements.
