What to Expect
Your first visit to a physiotherapist at Teamworks will include both a thorough assessment of your injury (or what brought you into the clinic) as well as the initiation of a treatment management plan. The goal of the session is to get to the root cause of your injury. Your physiotherapist will perform a combination of hands-on treatment, electrotherapy application, exercise prescription and education. Our physiotherapists take an active approach to care which means that you will be actively involved in your recovery process. You will be prescribed a home exercise program to facilitate your recovery and get you back to your sport or life activities as quickly as possible. Physiotherapy services at Teamworks are provided in both private treatment rooms as well as an open concept treatment area (with curtained stalls). Both environments involved uninterrupted one-on-one patient care.
