Frequently Asked Questions
- How should I dress for my physiotherapy assessment? You should wear comfortable loose fitting clothing. If we will be assessing your knees or legs (e.g. knee replacement), please wear shorts or pants that you can roll above your knees.
- How many sessions of physiotherapy will I need? It is difficult to put a number on exactly how many sessions you will require, but typically patients attend 2-3 times a week for a period of 6-8 weeks. There are many factors that determine the frequency including type of injury/surgery, age, general health, complications, etc. The physiotherapist will discuss all of these factors in determining the most effective approach to your treatment planning on the first visit.
- How will my doctor know what is happening with my treatment/progress? Each time you visit your doctor for a follow up, the physiotherapist will send a progress report with you to be read and signed by your family physician or surgeon then returned to the physiotherapist on your next visit.
