He will also obtain a history of previous diagnostic tests, history of prescribed and over the counter medications and treatment that have succeeded in reducing symptoms After assembling this information, the physician will diagnose possible causes of the condition and organize a treatment plan to exclude similar musculo skeletal conditions that might mimic it. He will initiate a plan of treatment utilizing medications, exercises, independent exercises for the patient to perform to increase activity physical therapy, and ergonomic adaptations.
