Senior Cairns physiotherapists Ryan Adam and Elyse Dolman are experienced at diagnosing and treating complex musculoskeletal problems, drawing from a wide range of assessment domains and management options.

Complex cases are frequently referred to us by treating specialists, medical practitioners and clients, for people who

  • are not progressing or have not responded to physiotherapy or other allied health treatment as expected
  • are currently being treated, but the existing therapist is uncertain of the diagnosis or prognosis
  • may need or want a second opinion or an alternative direction for management

Our senior physiotherapists are able to

  • use strong clinical reasoning for differential diagnoses to provide an accurate diagnosis
  • provide a management plan with an accurate prediction of time frame for recovery
  • offer alternatives to management, when the current management programme is not progressing
  • give experienced advice on non-conservative measures such as surgery and injections
