A thorough medical history must be completed on each post rehab client. Verbally ask the client each question on the med history form. Direct interaction with the client allows for a much more accurate medical history appraisal and avoids the possibility of a medical condition slipping through the cracks. The medical condition missed in the medical history may result in the client exacerbating an old condition or causing a new injury. The most important aspect of the medical history is to listen. Your client will tell you every medical concern they have but you must listen closely for the subtle meanings within the medical history interview. The importance and approach to taking a medical history is reviewed in our Medical Exercise Specialist and Essentials of Post Rehab Fitness workshops.
