What Should I Expect During Physiotherapy Treatment?

Expect a warm, friendly environment with helpful staff and skilled therapists.

Assessment

Expect a thorough assessment on your first visit, up to and at times over one hour in length to allow your therapist to identify your problems, and work with you to establish and plan and goals for treatment. Your therapist will try to identify how often you should attend and for how many visits.

Treatment

Each visit for treatment will consist of significant one on one time with your therapist, chatting about how you are feeling, providing one to one manual therapy techniques, recommending modalities, and reviewing and updating your exercise program.

Therapy techniques can be used to focus on different issues that may be related to your particular problem:

  • Reducing pain, reducing muscle spasm or tone
  • Improving muscle imbalance, reducing muscle tightness
  • Improving mobility or range of motion, improving joint movement
  • Improvement posture or biomechanics
  • Improving strength or stability
  • Improving your ability to function at home, work or during leisure activities
