After your initial examination, our physiotherapist will discuss with you the nature or your condition and whether or not her treatment offerings will be beneficial to your recovery. This examination involves a discussion about your health-history followed by some physical tests.
These tests include movement analysis, strength tests, sensation and neurological tests and orthopedic tests. This will provide your physiotherapist with an idea of what your condition is and what would be the optimal way to treat it.
At our physiotherapy clinic in Burlington Ontario, Beth Slack, Samantha Costabile, Deanna St. Clair, and Maraisa (Mara) Ockenden will discuss with you the various treatment options suitable to your condition and together you can agree on how to proceed. As mentioned previously, our Burlington Physiotherapy clinic believes in using the most recent evidence-based information possible to help guide choices for treatment.
At our physiotherapy clinic in Burlington, we often utilize a combination of laser therapy, hands-on soft tissue treatment, acupuncture (if agreeable to the patient) and rehabilitative exercises. Educating patients about their condition and the ways to maintain clinical improvement is a very important component of care at our facility in Burlington.
If your condition would be better managed by a different practitioner our physiotherapist will make the appropriate recommendation to you.
