  2. She will then ask you about your hobbies, work and habits  so she can gauge the physical demands of your daily life

Towards the end of the exam, Monika will then discuss with you what your goals are and try to help you achieve them. No injury heals overnight, so she will discuss a plan for you that will include, but not limited to, soft tissue work, stretching, resistance exercise, massage, ultrasound and/or shockwave. She will explain to you your estimated time frame for recovery and you may recieve treatment on your first visit.
