What types of symptoms are likely to respond to this therapy?

The therapist is initially interested in dysfunctions of the head and neck and their influence on your daily life activities. He / she will focus on your dominant symptoms more than on the diagnostic title of the problem. Many patients with similar symptoms have various diagnostic titles.

Most patients have seen a doctor prior to their referral to physiotherapy. A number of diagnostic tests such as blood tests, x-rays, computer tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) etc will have been performed. The therapist may seek contact to your referring doctor whether additional tests are required.
