During the initial consultation, the likely diagnosis and treatment options are discussed. This is a fully informed shared decision making process with the patient actively involved in the treatment choice.

This could be in the form of further investigations in the form of scans, local injections into shoulder/ elbow/ wrist/ hand, arranging physiotherapy or discussing surgery as an option.
