What is the difference between the initial assessment and subsequent treatment?Initial Assessments is for the clinican to understand what your experiencing day to day and with physical activity. Its also for the clinician to see what motions are affected, what muscles are weak or strong, if there are any assymetries in the body (gait, range of motion, or muscle), tender spots/tight muscles, etc. A Subsequent Treatment is dependent upon what the clinician saw from the assessment but usually includes modalities and individualized exercise prescription program.
When should I use heat or ice with an injury?Its dependent upon the healing stage your in and varies from clinician to clinician. Usually you want to ice when there is swelling or pain associated with an injury. Since ice contracts muscle which in return decreases blood flow and numbs the nerves to help with pain. It also helps to slow down metabolism and helps to relieve symptoms of autoimmune diseases. Heat is used when there is no swelling in the area (later stages of healing). Heat helps to increase blood flow/oxygen/nutrients to muscles, helps to decrease adhesions, and decreases transmission of pain signals to the brain.
