Evaluations

Comprehensive EVALUATION

90 minutes

This will be your very first visit for your current condition. In this session, I will have you complete some forms then I will ask you what you hope to get from Physical Therapy. Then I will ask about the history of your current problem and any other medical history that may be pertinent. Physical testing is usually next on the agenda to determine your limitations but most importantly to discover your potential for recovery. After a thorough examination of your whole person, we will discuss your goals and associated plan of care. We should have plenty of time to get you started on a treatment including a home program to do until we meet again.

Tests are carefully chosen to ensure no aggravation of symptoms and may include:

  • Postural Assessment

  • Assessment of walking or running

  • Range of motion

  • Strength and flexibility testing

  • Neurological testing

  • Balance testing

  • Various special tests related to your condition

At the end of your evaluation we will discuss approximately how many treatments we think it will take, how often you will need me to come and what works for your schedule. In these sessions, we will progress your home program, reassess when necessary, work on the activities you are trying to improve. I will also provide you with online and recommended resources to  purchase to enable you to complete your program efficiently and effectively.

TAPING

Taping has very limited research at the current time however, I was fortunate to be trained by one of the founding Physios in the taping world, Jenny McConnell. So I have been taping in its various forms for 30+ years and have had wonderful anecdotal results.

  • McConnell taping - I use leukotape to stabilize joints such as the shoulder and patellofemoral joint and where needed the upper and low back.

  • Kinesiology taping - Kinesiology tape is stretchy tape that can be used in many and varied ways. It is particularly useful in movement recovery.

Modality Instruction

I will not supply treatment modalities however if we decide together that any of these maybe of benefit to you, I will give you recommendations on units to purchase (if needed) and best buy bets.

  • Application of heat and/or ice

  • TENs unit adjustment, application and instruction

  • Ice compression units

  • Traction units

  • Paraffin wax units

 

Other Services

Video Run/ Walk Analysis

60-90 minutes

For this analysis, I video you running or walking on a treadmill from different angles and take photos of pertinent moments to help you determine  what deficits you may have in your running/walking style. I will help determine causes of pain that you may be having with walking, hiking, races, fun runs and begin you on the course to improve your running/walking/hiking style and efficiency. 

Detailed Postural Analysis

60-90 minutes

For this analysis, I photograph you in standing, sitting and squatting. We analyze these positions using accurate postural assessment. After analysis, I will spend time with you educating you on how to get the best posture in these various positions and provide you with initial exercises to get you started on maintaining the best posture for your particular activity. A detailed postural report will be included for your information and can also be provided to any other fitness or health care professional that you request. 

Annual CheckUP

60 minutes

This service is most particularly important to establish your physical baseline and note any progression or loss using evidence based tests. Your balance, strength, flexibility and your endurance are all assessed and most items tested can be compared to other people in your age group so you can see what you need to work on or even how far above average you are!
