I will send you a form to fill out prior to our first session where you will be able to provide me with all the details about your symptoms – how much pain you are suffering, how long you have been suffering and how it is affecting your life. In addition, I will need to know about your full medical history particularly any past episodes of pain and other health issues.  Any prior x-ray or scan results will also be requested. If the pain is ‘chronic’ in nature (has persisted for longer than a few months), then the case history will also require details of any related stresses or prior traumas in your life.  Any further details can be discussed in our first session.
