at Physiothérapie Saint-Lazare
Initial Assessment $90.00
At the Initial Assessment the physiotherapist will perform an assessment of the problem. If you have more than one problem area, please choose the one that is affecting you the most. We will address the other problems in subsequent treatments.
What to bring to your appointment:
- Dr. referral if you have one
- List of medications
- Shorts and/or sleeveless shirt depending on problem area.
You can expect the physiotherapist to ask you questions about your particular movement and/or pain issues.
Then the physiotherapist will perform an examination looking at range of motion, strength, pain, and perform some special tests.
At the end of the assessment the physiotherapist will discuss the findings, and educate you on what to expect in terms of your prognosis and length of time to achieve your goals. We will start treatments on the day of your evaluation.
