Initial Assessment: ($110.00 + HST = $113.00 / 60 minute duration):

During the initial assessment, the session will be divided into two components: a clinical assessment followed by a treatment session. During the assessment portion, you will be asked a series of questions regarding your injury which will be followed by several other evaluations such as: postural evaluation, gait analysis, functional range of motion testing, joint / muscle resistance testing, joint / muscle special testing, neurological and reflex testing (if applicable) as well as palpation of the injured region of the body.

The second component is the treatment portion whereby your assessed injury will be treated using a combination of current manual therapy techniques, electrical modalities as well as stretch and strength exercises.

Follow-Up Treatment: ($55.00 + HST = $62.15 / 30 minute duration):

During the 30 minute follow-up treatment session, you will be asked about your response to the initial treatment, find out where you have made some progress and what areas still need work. Based on your responses and a quick reassessment of the injury, a treatment plan will be established and executed for the session along with a personalized home program designed and developed just for you, allowing for a FASTER and MORE COMPLETE recovery from your injury-allowing you to get back in the game sooner!
