functional testing

In order to eliminate guesswork, and create a treatment plan that is personalised and specific we may utilise some functional and standard pathology testing.

These tests will save you time and money, as we create a plan based on facts and can then monitor your progress. Please bring a copy of all medical tests you’ve had in the last two years to your first consult so we avoid duplicating tests you’ve done before.

There are many tests and laboratories available – however due to my research and background in training other practitioners in functional testing I am very discerning about the labs I will use. As such, I will only suggest tests with sufficient evidence to back their use, and with the gold standard of accuracy and sensitivity. Rest assured, I will only recommend a test when I feel it will change the course of our treatment or provide a missing piece of information.
