What is a physiotherapy session like?

- Developing a treatment and/or prevention plan that will take into account lifestyle, activities, and general health.
- The prescription of braces and exercise as required.
Does physiotherapy hurt?
- In general, physiotherapy should not hurt. Although, the first initial sessions certain stretches and exercises may cause a slight discomfort. Every person has a different pain tolerance so experience may vary.
Does physiotherapy have side effects?
- In the vast majority of cases physiotherapy has been revered as extremely effective. Reasearch suggests that physiotherapy significantly improves the rehabilitation and recovery of most conditions, as well as being instrumental in the prevention of further injury. Physiotherapy often forms an integral part of a patient’s treatment plan and can be a means of relaxation and an indicator of individual process.
Do you need a doctors referral?
- No you do not need a doctors referral since physiotherapy is considered primary care. However based upon your condition we may suggest that you consult a doctor for their opinion or to get further tests done. Also, you may want to call your insurance to find out if they need a referral to reimburse you for your physiotherapy treatments.
What should you wear?
- We recommend loose fitting clothing so it is more easy to expose the area that our physiotherapist will be evaluating and treating such as a tanktop for a shoulder injury, or a pair of shorts in the case of a knee problem.
How long are the sessions?
- Treatment sessions last normally 30 to 90 minutes per visit.
How many visits do you need?
- The number of visits can be highly variable depending on your condition. You may need one visit or you may need months of care. It ultimately depends on the physiotherapist's assessment and diagnosis, the severity of your impairments, your past medical history, etc.
What should I do after my treatments?
- Depending on the condition, some patients will need to do a continuation of at-home exercises. Some patients may choose to continue with a gym excercise program. Others will complete their rehabilitation and return to normal every day activities. It is highly important you speak toyour physiotherapist at Triangle, exactly what your goals are so we can help develop a custom program, tailored for you.
