At your first appointment, your physiotherapist will take a detailed medical history. This will be followed by an assessment which may include an internal examination. If your Physiotherapist recommends this assessment they will discuss it with you prior and you can decide together if you would like to have the internal assessment done.

Following the assessment your physiotherapist will develop a treatment plan specific for your needs. This may include soft tissue release, joint release, home exercise and education.

This depends on your coverage. We will give you a receipt and you can submit it to your insurer.
