What Can I Expect at My first Visit?

On your first day, Saadia will get to know you and how your body moves. That means, she will take a detailed account of what has been hurting, for how long, and even the details of previous injuries. She will then asses how your general motions is, which may include observing your walking, squatting, jumping, reaching, etc. This information is then used to determine what regions to further examine that may be causing your problem. With all of this information in hand, Saadia will give you a diagnosis and make a treatment plan to help resolve your pain and get you back to the things you enjoy.

What Can I Expect for Treatment? Do You do Any Hands on Work?

The following is an example of some of the treatments you may receive depending on your individual situation:

  • Manual therapy - this is hands on therapy that involves the soft tissues of the body like muscles, ligaments, and tendons, and may include mobilizations and stretching.
  • Exercise programs - such as muscle strengthening, posture retraining, and cardiovascular training.
  • Electrotherapy techniques - which consists of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), diathermy, and ultrasound.

Why Should I Choose Physiotherapy?

PT's are highly skilled in the identification of injuries and their cause. In many cases, a course of physiotherapy lead to more permanent improvements and decrease the chance of your pain or symptoms returning in the future. This is because of the exercises you will perform and education that you will receive as part of your treatment plan.
