Your first visit should include an evaluation by the physiotherapist. Your physiotherapist will perform an examination to identify current and potential problems. Based on the results of the examination, and considering your specific goals, your physiowill design a plan of care to include specific interventions and will propose a timetable to achieve these goals and optimize your movement and function.
You should feel comfortable asking your physiotherapist any questions regarding your course of care, including specifics regarding interventions and expectations.
Physical therapists are highly educated who help patients improve, restore, or maintain mobility; in many cases helping patients reduce pain, and avoid the need for surgery and the long-term use of prescription medications and their side effects.
