THE INITIAL CONSULTATION
During your first visit, Dr Wilson Tay will interview and examine you to better understand your pain condition.
If needed, blood tests, X-rays, CT or MRI scans will be arranged to further evaluate and confirm the diagnosis.
He will discuss the various treatment options and design a treatment plan for you. The plan may involve pain medications, physiotherapy and advice on exercises, ergonomics and posture.
