Are you using a “WOW” assessment?May 27, 2019
Are you using a “WOW” assessment? In this video, Andrew breaks down the importance of “WOW” assessment in answering the unknown and to determine the treatment:
- At MAT we believe a “WOW” assessment is an integral part in helping to engage your patients/clients better and really help push them forward to get amazing health and fitness outcomes.
- Patient expectation in health care continues to increase and this is something that needs to be managed adequately in order to improve patient buy-in.
- Often by selecting an objective test that reveals a tangible limitation or imbalance from side to side this can be a “WOW” moment that really illustrates the clinical story you are trying to educate the patient in front of you with.
- Pick your test based on your experience and the patient presentation. Some example of tests are Flexibility Tests (Eg: WBLT, Spinal Rotation on the MAT), Balance Tests (Eg: SEBT on the MAT), Strength Tests (Eg: Single Leg Sit To Stand Test), Power Tests (Eg: Hop Tests).
- A comprehensive objective assessment will also assist with the prescription of an appropriate, individualised management plan based on the limitation or imbalances to address that individuals needs.
- Objective “WOW” tests can also be used to show the before and after effectiveness of an intervention Eg: Manual Therapy, Mobilisations, Tendon Loading Protocols etc
- The clinician-patient alliance, negotiated through clinical interaction, presents a critical intervention point with “WOW” moments often further driving positive interaction.
