In addition to talking to the patient, the clinical examination includes assessing the neurological status of the patient as well as recording structural (for example, statics of the spine) and functional (for example, muscle tension and movement restrictions of the spine) findings. This is based on a thorough anamnesis that includes specific questions about the patient’s respective complaints.
The examination methods include the following:
- Neurological and orthopaedic manual diagnostic examination
- Posture and movement analysis of the spine
- Biomechanical functional diagnostics of the spinal musculature (muscle function analysis)
- Neurophysiological examination methods (full electrodiagnostics, intraoperative monitoring)
