What can I expect at a physiotherapy appointment?
An initial appointment consists of a history, physical exam, and treatment. A history entails gathering the details of your injury through a one-on-one discussion of your symptoms. A physical exam involves an inspection of the area in question and surrounding joints. You will be asked to move and resist movements, and special manual tests will be performed by the physiotherapist to determine the injured tissue. Treatment consists of education about the injury and its cause, and modalities such as manual therapy, acupuncture, and corrective exercises. You will be provided with activities and exercises to perform at home to decrease your symptoms and prevent recurrence.
Follow up appointments involve examining progress of symptoms, evaluating exercises and movement, further treatment, and progressing exercises and activities as tolerated.
What do I wear/bring?
If you have a lower back or lower body injury you should bring or wear loose fitting shorts or spandex shorts and a tee shirt. If you have an upper body injury, men should be prepared to go without a shirt and women should be prepared to wear a tank top or sports bra. It is important to be able to physically see the affected area to accurately diagnosis and properly treat the area. You will also be performing some exercise, so it is important to be able to move freely.
