At Balance Physiotherapy our goal is to help relieve your pain and get you back moving as soon as possible. We believe that being active is a key component to a healthy life.
What to expect on the first visit:
All assessments and subsequent treatments are conducted in private rooms. We start by listening to your story and then go through a thorough assessment of your symptoms. Any findings will be explained to you and, in collaboration with you, a treatment plan outlined to facilitate your recovery. With your consent, appropriate treatment techniques will be applied and specific exercises prescribed to assist you in working towards your goal. ﾠWe strongly encourage you to ask questions as you are an integral part of your own treatment. Our goal is to provide you with the necessary tools and information to enable you to take an active role in your healing and recovery in order to get you back to your preferred sport or activity as soon as possible.
When to arrive:
To ensure you maximize time with your therapist, we ask that you arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment. This will allow adequate time to complete the initial registration if needed and respond to any questions you may have. We respect your time and strive to stay on schedule. You can expect to be at the clinic for approximately 45 – 60 minutes.
What to wear:
Depending on your area of injury, shorts or a tank top would be useful to bring with you. Don’t worry if you forget, Balance Physio will provide you with shorts or a gown as needed. This will allow us to assess your symptoms thoroughly and appropriately. If you have any questions or concerns about this, please talk to your physiotherapist.
Follow up appointments:
These are usually 30-45 minutes (longer if required) and the number needed varies from person to person dependent on the injury or the nature of their problem. Together with your physiotherapist, you can decide on the optimal number of treatments necessary to maximize your recovery and return to activity or sport.
