Physiotherapy

The frequency and content of physiotherapy treatment sessions will vary depending on your initial assessment. Most commonly patients will start treatment at a frequency of two times per week, with the goal directed towards independence and return to pre-injury function.

Physiotherapist commonly treat:

  • tennis/golfer’s elbow
  • rotator cuff syndrome
  • plantar fascitis
  • tendonitis/ligament sprains
  • post-surgical or fracture rehabilitation
  • low back pain/disc herniation/sciatica< /li>

 

Your session may include:

  • manual therapy/mobilization of affected stiff joints
  • exercise prescription for home exercising or for the gym
  • modalities to relieve pain and promote soft tissue healing (such as ultrasound, interferential current, electrical muscle stimulation, and Acupuncture)
  • soft tissue massage and stretching
  • Active Release Techniques treatment
  •  

    You do not need a referral to start physiotherapy treatment, simply book an appointment. However, you will likely need to see your physician for a referral slip for physiotherapy so that you can reclaim your costs through your benefits plan.
