If you would like to make an appointment with one of our physiotherapists, please call  613-520-3511.

For Your First Visit: What can you expect when you make your first visit to The Sports Therapy Clinic

The interview

Your physiotherapist will do a thorough interview with you.  The initial assessment will include a detailed history of your current injury or complaint, as well as a discussion about past injuries or surgeries, sports and home activity requirements.

The examination

The physiotherapist will perform a local postural examination and do a thorough biomechanical assessment of the injury to identify all areas that may require strengthening, mobilization, myofascial work, neurodynamic mobility or postural correction.

The explanation

At the end of your assessment, you will have a good understanding of the source of your pain. You and your physiotherapist will identify your goals for recovery and an individual treatment plan will be made.  Your treatment will begin following the assessment during your initial visit.  The initial appointment usually lasts approximately an hour.

 The treatment

Over the course of your next few visits, your physiotherapist will treat your injury, as well as show you any home exercises that will become an important part of your recovery and return to activity. You will be an active participant in your treatment and recovery. You should bring appropriate clothing for treatment and assessment. For lower body injuries (lower back, foot, leg, hip or groin), bring comfortable shorts. For upper body injuries (head, neck, upper back, shoulder or arm) you should bring a tank top or t-shirt.

 Scheduling follow-up visits

At the end of your visit you’ll schedule return appointments for additional treatment and monitoring as you return to health. If you have any questions, you can ask them of your physiotherapist before you leave.
