Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather information about the patient’s medical history, including any previous injuries, surgeries, or underlying medical conditions.
  • Ask about the nature of the injury, including the mechanism of injury and any associated symptoms.
  • Inquire about any recent infections or illnesses.

Physical Examination
