Your orthopedic specialist will evaluate your joint and or spine depending on what the problem is and how you describe your pain, but the most common tests you can expect from your visit consist of the following:
A thorough medical history evaluation
A physical examination
Additional tests, as needed
Your medical history needs to be evaluated by your orthopedic specialist to assess the status of your health and the possible causes of your joint and or spine pain. Additionally, your history will help your specialist determine your level of joint and or spine pain and how it interferes with your daily life.
Your physician will ask you to perform a number of physical activities during the physical examination, including analyzing your standing posture, gait (your walking style), how you sit and lie down, which will help confirm the diagnosis.
