Pursue a physical therapist.
If you want to pursue this evaluation, find a PT who wants to work on this approach with you.
Make an appointment with that PT for the evaluation (System Limitations Evaluation SLE).
Bring the information you tracked about your pain. Work together to develop monitors. It can take several sessions to develop accurate monitors.
See monitor description in PT section below and in tracking pain section above.
Have findings recorded on The Measurement Chart. It is a great tool for you and your health care providers to be able visualize what is happening for you mechanically. This can be very helpful to providers if you have other issues too.
Work with the licensed physical therapist on developing programs for you to work on at home, every day, including a Protective Program and a Corrective Program.
Focus on developing the daily programs first, if able, that way, 1) you are getting something done every day, 2) you will see if you can decrease your pain on your own, and 3) the feedback from your home program will not be confused with feedback from other treatment.
You are working with a licensed physical therapist, they could find needs that supersede the recommendations here.
Plan periodic appointments to re-measure. The measurable changes in the monitors are just as important as the change in the physical measurements.
You will find areas of progress and areas that are struggling. When you monitor your pain methodically it is easier to determine what impacts pain and therefore can be very helpful in recognizing what to do for the areas that are struggling.
Note: The measurements often reveal limitations that impact other orthopedic pain, neck, knee etc.
Those limitations/pain should be addressed in your home programs too. Most often you will find that it is all related.
