Physiotherapy Visit

At your first session, you will have a consultation with our physiotherapist to discuss any problems that you are experiencing, possible causes to those issues, and a physical examination to access your strength, range of motion, and flexibility. After your assessment, our physiotherapist will help you create a personalized treatment plan. We will give you some specialized exercises to do at home, designed to build strength, increase flexibility, and improve balance and coordination.

If you are experiencing any type of swelling or pain, our physiotherapist will take you through a range of treatments. These treatments could include heat or cold treatments, acupuncture, massage, ultrasound, TENS (transcutaneous electrical stimulation), manipulation, hydrotherapy, and mobilization. These therapies are designed to reduce the inflammation caused by your injury or condition.
