What to Expect at your Initial Visit?
Our physiotherapists will ask you questions related to your car accident, your pain, limitations and treatment goals. Notes will be taken throughout your initial visit and a treatment plan will be created.
An assessment will be conducted to test functional movement, muscle strength, and flexibility.
There will be one-on-one treatment with your physiotherapist throughout the course of recovery.
You will need to collaborate with your physiotherapist regarding how healing and rehabilitation process is coming along and your treatment is progressed to ensure optimal healing.
