Physiotherapy Consultation
 

An experienced physiotherapist will take a comprehensive history of your problem by asking questions and perform a thorough biomechanical and orthopaedic physical examination in order to diagnose your condition or determine the physiotherapy plan that's needed to help you feel better and/or recover as quickly as possible. To ensure that you receive the attention you deserve, we book a full hour for your initial physiotherapy consultation which also ensures that treatment can be initiated at the first visit. 

 

Physiotherapy Treatment
 

Following an initial consultation, physical treatment emphasizing manual (hands-on) therapy and exercise with adjunctive modalities as necessary will be instituted. Treatment is done one-on-one with the same physiotherapist for the duration of the treatment plan. At times, the aid of a physiotherapy assistant with a background in exercise therapy will be employed for the implementation of the exercise portion of the treatment but this will be in addition to the time with your physiotherapist. In order to ensure optimal one-on-one care, we only book 2 patients per hour at half-hour intervals so that you will receive a full 30 minutes of dedicated time with your physiotherapist. Often, your session may be longer than 30 minutes if you're also receiving treatments such as electro-stimulation, acupuncture or exercises following your one-on-one time which are all included as part of the physiotherapy session. At all times our goal is to educate you about your condition and the corrective steps to treat the problem, thus ensuring that you'll be able to manage independently. Communication with referring medical professionals using progress and discharge summaries is done regularly.
