During your first visit, your Physiotherapist will complete a thorough assessment including a discussion of relevant health history, evaluation of pain and movement patterns, objective examination of strength, joint ranges of motion, reflexes, session and cardiorespiratory status. If applicable, your Physiotherapist will also examine relevant X-ray or MRI results, laboratory tests, medical records and surgical notes. Based on this assessment, your Physiotherapist identify a comprehensive problem list.
These concerns will be different for everyone, but could include:
Restricted range of motion
Poor stability or balance
Difficulty walking or moving
Difficulty participating fully in a sport
Difficulty performing daily activities & chores
Upcoming surgery requiring pre-op strengthening

Short-term goals: decreasing pain and swelling; increasing movement
Medium-term goals: increase strength and balance
Long-term goals: return to playing a sport; return to work; restore or maintain independence at home; better post-surgical outcomes
Your Lawrence Park Physiotherapist will then review their clinical findings with you, answer any questions you may have, and work in partnership with you to develop individualized goals and treatment programs tailored to your unique needs.
