When should you come and see a physiotherapist?

Physiotherapists can be beneficial in any stage of injury. Even before an injury occurs, physiotherapists can screen for muscle weaknesses, create a focused exercise program for you, and provide education on self-management and injury risk reduction. In the early stages after an injury (hours to a couple days), physiotherapists can help reduce pain and inflammation through various modalities, as well as provide education on what activities should and should not be performed in order to see the best results for recovery. Following this, moving to a more subacute (days to weeks), or chronic (months) phase of an injury, physiotherapists can help restore you back to the activities you love to do. 

Before Your First Visit

  • Make a list of questions that you have to discuss on your first visit.

  • List signs and symptoms that can be of importance to the therapist.

  • Have in writing key past medical history, previous treatments, current medications, and other important information.

  • Arrive 15 minutes early for your first appointment.

  • Bring with you a copy of your insurance card and a photo ID.

What to Expect on Your First Visit:

  • You will register with our friendly front office staff. They will help you navigate the insurance process and treatment program so you can focus on your recovery.

  • A comprehensive assessment by a physical therapist should involve a detailed history of your injury and function, assessment of your range of motion and strength, as well as a variety of special tests specific to your injury. These assessment findings are analyzed and used to create a diagnosis. Using your goals and current level of function, a treatment plan will be created. This treatment plan could involve a number of things including: therapeutic exercises, therapeutic modalities, manual mobilizations, massage, education, environmental adaptations, and many others.

  • There will be some treatments performed the first day to get you started on your path to recovery. However, during the next visits you will get into the all aspects of your treatment plan.

  • You will schedule your series of visits with the front desk. The amount of therapy needed will be discussed with you, depending on the recommendations of your therapist. We offer many convenient appointment times, however, prime times can become busy, so it is best to book ahead as much as possible.

  • Your therapist will write up their findings and treatment plan to submit to your referring physician or another medical professional who you choose.

  • If you have any questions at any time, please don’t hesitate to call. We want to ensure your satisfaction and full recovery.
