Faq

1. How many sessions will I need?
Physiotherapist will perform a comprehensive assessment to determine what areas need to be addressed during treatments. The length of time for an injury to resolve depends on multiple factors including the extent of the injury, how acute the injury is, pre-existing conditions and your pre-injury fitness level. Taking all of this information into account your therapist will explain your specific situation at your first session. The patient’s goals are always a large part of what’s taken into account in determining a treatment program.

2. What makes Go Physio different?
At GO Physio you will be seen by a registered physiotherapist that will take a detailed history of not just the current pain or problem that you are having but also previous injuries, pains or changes in your routine that may have contributed to your current symptoms. During your initial assessment we will perform a detailed biomechanical and musculoskeletal examination to determine the source of pain as well as the contributing factor. This may include tests of flexibility and range of motion (ROM) and movement of your limbs and spine to determine local or global movement restrictions. Evidence based techniques will also localize your symptoms so that the most appropriate treatment techniques can be utilized.

3.How should I dress?
You should wear loose fitting clothing so you can expose the area that we will be evaluating and treating. For example, if you have a knee problem, it is best to wear shorts. For a shoulder problem, a tank top is a good choice, and for low back problems, wear a loose fitting shirt and pants so we can perform a thorough examination.

4.How long will each treatment last?
Treatment sessions typically last 30 to 60 minutes per visit.

5.How many visits will I need?
This is highly variable. You may need one visit or you may need months of care. It depends on your diagnosis, the severity of your impairments, your past medical history, etc. You will be re-evaluated on a fortnight/monthly basis and when you see your doctor, we will provide you with a progress report with our recommendations.

7.What is Physical Therapy? Is it like Massage Therapy or Chiropractic Care?
In reference to massage therapy, a PT can and will often administer massage-like techniques called soft tissue mobilization, but massage therapists cannot administer PT. The PT you receive therefore may include soft tissue mobilization but will include much more education, exercise and the use of other modalities. Chiropractic care differs quite a bit in the sense that a Chiropractor relies heavily on performing joint manipulations. Chiropractors typically will see a patient for much longer than a physical therapist for continued joint manipulations or "adjustments" whereas a physical therapist will rehab the injury or painful area and then instruct the patient in a Home Exercise Program for continued care. A physical therapist with specialized training can effectively perform many of the physical adjustments that a Chiropractor utilizes.

8.I just had orthopedic surgery; will physical therapy help me heal faster?
Of Course! Physical Therapy can help reduce swelling, increase active and passive range of motion and increase strength and endurance after orthopedic surgery. Most importantly, attending physical therapy increases the functioning of the involved muscles, bones and other soft tissues much more quickly and effectively than just "staying at home" after surgery.

9.How do I know that physical therapy can help me?
Physical therapy can help anyone who is suffering from musculoskeletal injuries, recovering from surgeries or other difficulties such as balance/walking problems, or neurological problems such as stroke and acquired brain injuries. Even people recovering from non-orthopedic surgeries (internal problems, cancer) can benefit from PT by regaining strength and endurance. The realm of physical therapy is huge and encompasses the whole body and its functioning. To learn how PT can specifically help your condition, make an appointment with us.

10.Do I need a referral to come to physical therapy?
A referral may come from a physician, orthopaedician, neurologist, gynecologist or podiatrist. However with growing awareness about physiotherapy there is increase in the flow of direct walk-in patients into the physiotherapy clinics. Insurance companies do require a referral to provide insurance coverage. For those who get reimbursement of the medical expenditure may have to check with their respective office about the extent of physiotherapy facility that can be availed.

11.WHAT DOES PHYSICAL THERAPIST DO?
Physical therapists are experts trained in the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunction. They are trained specifically to improve movement and function, relieve pain, and expand movement potential. Physical therapy is often the treatment of choice in situations where pain impairs function, in recovering from an injury or surgery, and in recovering from a disease process or illness. Physical therapists also teach adaptive and physical coping skills in dealing with impaired function from a disease, injury or illness.
