What to expect during a treatment?

You can expect a highly trained and personable physiotherapist. You will be welcomed to a modern and friendly environment, with patient care as our top priority. You will also receive a treatment program that is personalized to handle the injury that you are experiencing.

You should expect your first visit to be approximately 1 hour in length. This will include your initial assessment. Your assessment will be focused on determining the sources and cause(s) of your pain and will entail a physical assessment, looking at your strength, mobility, gait, activity level, etc. Furthermore, you will be asked to give a brief history of your lifestyle, activity level, list of prior injuries and more. You should come wearing comfortable, loose clothing to give the physiotherapist a better gauge of how you’re moving.
