What can I expect during Physiotherapy?

An examination will be performed which will include performance tests and measures that will be used to gather information on your particular condition. The examination will establish the diagnoses, a functional prognosis in physiotherapy, and a physiotherapy treatment plan. Various modalities are used as needed for pain relief, to decrease inflammation and muscular spasms.

Modalities include:

  • application of heat/ice
  • ultrasound
  • electrical stimulation
  • traction
  • decompression therapy
Your therapist may also provide hands-on joint mobilization and postural corrections. Patients will receive regular reevaluations of their progress within physiotherapy, which may cause modifications of treatment to achieve the desired outcome.
