Assessment and Treatment


Physiotherapists use their knowledge and skills to perform a comprehensive assessment to determine the nature of your problem and subsequently develop individualized goals and a treatment plan. 

An assessment may include an evaluation of your history, movement, strength, range of motion, posture, gait, reflexes, sensation and joint mobility.  Physiotherapy treatment may include education, manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, acupuncture, electrical modalities such as TENS, muscle stimulation and ultrasound. 

Treatment is always focused on promoting independence and therefore involves instruction in the skills and knowledge to help yourself.
