If you have pain in any part of your body come see us! We are able to assess you thoroughly, and establish a diagnosis. IF your pain is of a more serious concern (like an undiagnosed fracture, blood clot etc) we will send you with a note for your doctor to order more tests or imaging (Xrays, MRI, CT scan)
We will send you an online questionnaire and consent form (this provides us with any known medical history, contraindications and a general idea of the severity of your injury)
Your consent is an essential component of assessment and treatment. You may revoke your consent at any time. We aim to make you feel comfortable discussing this with your practitioner.
Provide your prescription for therapy IF you have one (not needed to access Physiotherapy, Chiropractic or Massage Therapy services; MAY be required for your Extended Health Benefits)
An initial evaluation by the therapist will discuss the following:
The therapist will then perform the objective evaluation which may include some of the following:
Palpation: Touching around the area of the pain/problem. This is done to check for the presence of tenderness, swelling, soft tissue integrity, tissue temperature, inflammation, etc.
Range of Motion (ROM):The therapist will move the joint(s) to check for the quality of movement and any restrictions.
Muscle Testing: The therapist may check for strength and the quality of the muscle contraction. Pain and weakness may be noted. Often the muscle strength is graded. This is also part of a neurological screening.
Neurological Screening: The therapist may check to see how the nerves are communicating with the muscles, sensing touch, pain, vibration, or temperature. Reflexes may be assessed as well.
Special Tests: The therapist may perform special tests to confirm/rule out the presence of additional problems.
Posture Assessment: The positions of joints relative to ideal alignment, and to each other.

Please wear loose or stretchy clothing to enable you to move comfortably

We aim to ensure you feel safe and comfortable during your sessions.
Physiotherapists and Chiropractors are primary care providers and you are allowed to access us directly without seeing a doctor first.
