What should I wear?
We recommend wearing layers of comfortable clothing that allows us to see your body move. It is easier to assess an injury if we can see the affected area directly, so please be prepared to show us some skin! Wear shorts, a tank top, etc.
What should I bring to my appointment?
Please bring your health care card to your first appointment. We will add your PHN to your file for future reference.

How many treatments will I need?
This depends on the nature of your injury, and on how committed you are to the at-home program we provide. We will recommend a treatment plan, and monitor your progress from visit to visit.
How often do I need to come for treatment?
We will determine the frequency of your treatments during your initial assessment.
Will I have to stop physical activities during treatment?
Not necessarily. Our goal is to help you get back to being you as quickly as possible. Depending on the nature of your injury, we may show you ways to modify your movements, or provide you with alternative activities until you have fully recovered.
What can I expect from treatment?
In your initial one-on-one assessment, we ask you to share a detailed history and we perform a physical examination. Based on the examination findings, we develop a treatment plan customized for you. Depending on the nature of your injury we will use a variety of treatment modalities to address your concerns
