When you first arrive one of our office staff will have you complete our information sheet. This will give us some helpful information about your medical condition to enable the physiotherapist to make a well informed evaluation. You will then be shown to a room where your therapist will review your medical history and particulars about your injury in order to do an assessment. She will follow this with treatment, exercises if applicable, and education regarding your injury. You will be instructed as to what type of activities are allowed during your recovery stage, what is expected of you between treatments. (i.e.; rest, exercise etc., and approximately how long you will need to come for treatment.)
