What to expect:
Your first visit will be a thorough assessment of your area of concern. Treatment is usually included in the first visit, with emphasis on patient education, advice and what to work on at home before your next appointment. An individualized treatment plan with your goals in mind will be created and discussed with you. Follow up appointments will include reassessment to ensure the source of the problem is being addressed, not just your symptoms. Your Phsyiotherapist will work with you to restore and maintain your highest level of physical function.
