What to expect from Physiotherapy?
Our physiotherapy room is a spacious room downstairs. The physiotherapist will come up to pick you up in the waiting area in front desk.
During your first physiotherapy assessment your therapist will take a detailed medical history and test your strength, flexibility, function, gait, reflexes, and more to properly diagnose the issue and determine an appropriate treatment plan. They may also use palpation techniques to assess the injured or affected area. It is a good idea to wear light weight, loose or stretchable garments which are easy to roll up the garment if need be.
Typically, this assessment lasts for at least 60 minutes. Along the way, feel free to ask any questions you might have. Your physiotherapist will communicate the entire time, often coming to a conclusion toward the end of your assessment.
From there, your physiotherapist diagnoses your condition or injury. They will let you know when and how often they expect to see you. They may also offer up a general timeline regarding what you can expect when it comes to making a full recovery. Once your therapist has determined the appropriate plan of action, treatment may include any of the following:
- Education: Based on your lifestyle, work environment setting and exercise habits, your physiotherapist would give the home care tips to you to practice to prevent injury or promote recovery.
- Manual therapy: hands on techniques may be used to stretch, mobilize and release tension in the soft tissue in the joints.
- Exercise: exercises to strengthen, lengthen and improve the muscular and skeletal function, restore coordination and balance.
Most follow-up appointments are between 30-45 minutes. Depending on your pain or injury, the number of follow-up appointments you need may vary.
