How can Physiotherapist help you with a proper diagnosis?

Physiotherapist will provide a detailed assessment of your problem, review records of your past treatment, attempt to elicit the underlying cause of the problem. In most of these patients, biomechanical problems are often the culprit. Physiotherapists are the best people who can assess biomechanical issues and can give you a proper diagnosis.
