What can physiotherapy help me with?
The physiotherapists in our Winnipeg clinic treat a huge variety of people from athletes with sports injuries to office workers with postural pain. We also treat people who have had car accidents, workplace injuries or need rehabilitation before or after surgery. Our physical therapists see people of all ages from children to the elderly. If you have a health concern that is orthopaedic in nature, call our Winnipeg clinic and one of our physiotherapists will be happy to help you!
Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession which aims to maximize people’s mobility, strength, function and health to optimize participation in activities of daily living. Physiotherapy also involves the rehabilitation of injuries, orthopaedic impairments, pre and post-surgical conditions and many others.
What to expect at your first physiotherapy visit
When you arrive at our clinic for your first physiotherapy session, we will collect some basic information from you to start your file. We will also find out details about any insurance coverage you may have for physiotherapy and go over it with you. We will ask you to fill out an intake form that covers basic medical history and details about your area of complaint. Once this has been completed you will be taken to your private assessment room.
Your physiotherapist will go over your intake form and ask you about your area of concern. Any information that you share with your physiotherapist is confidential. Your physiotherapist will then perform a physical assessment of things like your movement, strength, balance and flexibility depending on the nature of your injury or impairment.
Your physiotherapist will also palpate your area of concern to check for signs of inflammation, tenderness, tension or spasm. This information will help your therapist determine what the cause of your impairment is and what can be done to treat it. Based on this assessment, your physiotherapist will develop your individualized therapy plan. The main goal of this therapy plan is to get you back to the activities that you care about!
