A minor assessment is used to determine a course of care and management for a minor injury. An intermediate assessment is usually used after a surgery on the road to recovery, but a minor assessment is for rehabilitation after an injury. In a minor assessment, the physician will go over your medical records and examine your injury to assess your needs for continuing care, therapy, or other needs that may arise during your exam and consultation with the doctor.
