What to expect
During your first visit, your physiotherapist will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your health history, pain, movement, strength, balance, sensory system and cardiorespiratory status. The information gathered in the assessment will be used to determine a diagnosis and provide insight into your specific situation. From there, your physiotherapist will work in partnership with you to establish a personalized treatment plan, consulting with other members of our health care team if necessary. When your treatment program is complete your physiotherapist will teach you how to continue or maintain your progress independently, and advise you of relevant community programs.Find this service near you
