What Will Your First Visit Involve?
On your first visit you will need to fill out an intake form so we can get to know you. You will then be brought into a treatment room where the physiotherapist will take a thorough health history and have a discussion with you about your injury status and goals. The physiotherapist will perform a physical assessment of your health concern and from there make or confirm a diagnosis. The physiotherapist will develop an individualized treatment plan as well as provide you information on managing your symptoms and preventing them from returning in the future.
