Physiotherapy treatments are a combination of various techniques and methods that are customized based on the patient’s needs and expectations. The objective of physiotherapy treatment is to help the patient alleviate their chief complaint, which is typically some sort of pain and discomfort from an accident, injury, or chronic painful condition, such as arthritis.
This is accomplished by focusing on specific services that will help alleviate that pain, improve functioning, and help strengthen the body. At Physiotherapy First, our physiotherapists do not just focus on the initial symptoms of the pain and discomfort but also treat the root causes for the pain and discomfort.
Your initial consultation allows our physiotherapists to obtain a better understanding of your pain and discomfort. A comprehensive examination is performed to determine what types of physiotherapy treatments and services would best meet your needs. During the examination, we may perform some tests, like testing the range of motion.
After the examination, our physiotherapists prepare a customized treatment plan that will focus on the treatments and services that will best help reduce your pain and discomfort, promote healing, and target the underlying causes for the pain.
If you have questions about your treatment plan, we are happy to answer your questions during the consultation visit. If you are satisfied with the treatment plan, we may begin treatment the same day.
The length, duration, and frequency of appointments will depend on the extent of your pain and discomfort. Initially, regular visits every other day, or even every day may be recommended. The reason we encourage you to keep these appointments is each treatment session helps aid in your recovery and the healing of the body.
As you become stronger and your body heals, your appointment schedule is adjusted to reflect your current needs and objectives.
