Modern healthcare practice favours an evidence based, multi-disciplinary approach, moving 'usual' practice toward 'best practice'. The overarching aim of this consulting practice is to ensure the delivery of expertise, experience, empathy and professionalism in a relaxed office practice environment.
Dr McGrath intentionally provides ample consultation time to ensure that a relaxed environment exists in which to thoroughly investigate and explore your clinical presentation, conduct a careful analysis of the initial mechanism of injury and expose any subsequent factors that may unwittingly influence your recovery, together with other wider social and psychological influences that may bear upon your coping ability.
Evidence suggests expensive, prolonged treatment, or 'over-servicing', is definitively unassociated with enhanced outcomes
Get a second opinion. From a consultant perspective, Dr McGrath is pleased to offer review or a second opinion regarding the treatment that you may be undertaking, or considering undertaking. Nearly forty years of practice, coupled with research and institutional engagement is a wealth of clinical and academic experience, literally at the finger tips.
Keep in mind:
- Best practice not usual practice - there is no 'one-size fits all' approach, technique, exercise, device or novel treatment. Any recommendation is specific, tailored and consistent with the evidence
- Recovery before rehabilitation - if you have not recovered sufficiently, premature rehabilitation may simply aggravate and perpetuate your problem, turning what should have been an readily resolvable situation into a chronic and aggravated presentation
- Your pain relief and the achievement of an informed state of effective self-management in your own on-going well being - these are key goals in your care. At times this may also include your referral for relevant investigations or to another health professional. Quite often things cannot be 'fixed', but with the correct help and advice you can manage them from your attention
- 'Cranial', 'visceral' & acupuncture treatments are NOT practiced. Evidence-informed care for musculoskeletal pain presentations remain a cornerstone of best practice. Dr McGrath does not treat neonates, babies or young children though he may offer reassurance and advice if requested
