Physiotherapy is a rehabilitative science that helps to restore, maintain and make the most of a patient’s mobility, function and well-being when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. It entails a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions such as knee injury, stroke, and cerebral palsy etc
Although physiotherapists are primary care providers, some extended health insurance plans require a doctor’s referral in order to reimburse you for your physiotherapy sessions. Check with your extended health provider. If your extended health provider does not require a physician referral, it is not necessary to see your doctor prior to having a physiotherapy assessment. However, some clients are more comfortable seeing their doctor first.
Arrive on time. If you are late, you are taking away from your own assessment/treatment time. Wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing If you have a low back, hip, or knee injury, bring shorts If you have a shoulder injury, wear a loose fitting t-shirt or tank top If you have a doctor’s referral (particularly after surgery), bring it Bring a list of questions you would like to discuss
Every person is unique and every problem is unique. Some of our clients eliminate their pain and restore their function in 2 to 3 weeks. Some problems take 6 to 8 weeks. Unfortunately, some can take a few months, and in rare cases, longer.
This is a common question which no one can answer specifically. No two problems are the same, because every client is unique. This is why having a detailed assessment is so critical to help identify all the factors involved in the problem. Frequent re-assessment and re-evaluation are necessary to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment interventions as well as to progress the treatment appropriately. Recovery is also affected by client factors such as age, motivation, natural history/progression of the problem, occupation, hobbies and activities, psycho-social factors, etc.
