Diagnosis (CD-SSAT)

Well begun is half done!

At CAPRI our physical therapists primarily focus on diagnosing the exact cause of your pain so that focused treatment can be given to you to provide you a painfree state.


We have professionals who diagnose and treat individuals of all ages from newborns to the oldest who have medical problems or other health-related conditions, illnesses, and injuries that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities. PTs use an individual's history and physical examination to arrive at a diagnosis and establish a management plan and when necessary, incorporate the results of laboratory and imaging studies. Diagnostic tools include assessment of Range of Motion (goniometer,inclinometer), manual muscle testing of spinal muscles ,strength testing by dynamometer, pain assessment by algometer and special tests.

Capri's Digital Segmental Spinal Assessment and Treatment (CD-SSAT)

X ray & MRI only reveals the static condition and medical pathologies (if any) associated with pain & stiffness of the spine. Very often, if not always, its been seen that its not the medical pathologies are cause of pain & stiffness, but the wrong kinematics and kinetics (Faulty Biomechanics) of the spine that too in weight bearing positions (functional position). It is important to understand here that these biomechanical faults cannot be examined through X-rays and MRI.

To know complete functional picture of the spinal column, which meets day-to-day demand placed on it (Kinetics & Kinematics), it is important to examine detail biomechanics of each vertebra (spinal segment) in weight bearing position and every core muscle working for it.

At Capri Spine Clinic, we use Capri's Digital Segmental Spinal Assessment to find these Biomechanical faults at each vertebral segment of the spinal column. CDSSAT is innovative, highly sensitive computer assisted spine scanner that display the spine's shape and mobility in the sagittal and frontal planes (3D image). It surpasses most "traditional" methods in its precision, relevance and clarity of display (3D), at an optimal cost/benefit ratio. It is patient friendly, non invasive, and completely free from radiation.

Once the biomechanical fault is precisely identified, it is very much possible for therapist to fix it permanently in minimum duration of time. At Capri, We intend to provide the highest standard treatment that not only relieves pain and restores functions but also resolves the underlying cause of the problem.

It works as a preventive as well as curative measure to provide advanced treatment program comprising of Electrotherapy, Exercise therapy & Manual therapy, especially for patients who want pain relief without any adverse effects & a healthier lifestyle with long term pain management.
