For our clinicians to do an accurate assessment and gather all relevant information it is often beneficial to uncover the body part in question. We assure you that all levels of decency will be observed at all times and we encourage you to bring a chaperone if you feel more comfortable.

If you have an upper body or neck problem you will be required to remove your top half. Ladies should wear underwear that they feel comfortable in or bring a vest top. For a lower limb or low back problem we will often ask you to uncover both your lower and upper back. For the lower half we would suggest that you bring some shorts. You will be offered a freshly laundered gown with every appointment.

It is important to communicate your feelings if at any time you feel uncomfortable during the process.
