What do I need to bring with me?
If you have any reports of relevant CT or MRI scans, X-rays or referral letters from your doctor, then bring these with you. A tank top (for women) is recommended for shoulder assessments as well as shorts for knee and ankle assessments. Please bring indoor walking shoes.
Do I need a doctor referral to see a registered physiotherapist?
You do not need to be referred by a physician in order to make an appointment at Arnprior Physiotherapy. Your insurance company may require that you have a referral so that you may be covered by your extended health coverage.
How long will my first appointment be?
Your first physiotherapy session will take approximately 60 minutes and consists of thorough assessment. When all concerns are recognized and evaluated, a diagnosis is made and the findings are discussed with the client before developing an individualized treatment plan that works for you and your lifestyle.
What should I wear to my appointment?
It is best to wear comfortable, breathable clothing to your appointment. Shorts and a t-shirt are best if you are undergoing exercise therapy, as well as a pair of runners.
Do I need to have a “sports injury” to see a physiotherapist?
Not at all. I treat patients of all ages with all kinds of injuries. The cause of the injury is really not important, so whether you injured yourself playing a sport or simply doing daily chores at home we can help you get over your injury.
