Your initial assessment will be approximately one hour of dedicated time with the physiotherapist, followed by supervised and directed exercise by either the physiotherapist or the physiotherapy aide for up to an additional 30min. If ice or heat are required afterwards, that will be an additional 10-15min.
Follow-up appointments (treatment sessions) can be up to 30min of hands on time with the physiotherapist, followed by anywhere from 25min-2hr of exercise depending on the injury, again supervised by the physiotherapist &/or aide to ensure that you are doing all exercises safely and with correct technique to attain maximum benefit from each. If you require heat or ice afterwards, that will be an additional 10-15min.
If on a certain day you are under tight time constraints, please let your physiotherapist know so that they can make appropriate adjustments to your treatment plan for the day.
