Learn about Physical Assessments

Physiotherapy Initial Assessments:

Physiotherapy Initial Assessments:

Our Registered Physiotherapist (PT) begin with reviewing your previous health history. They will evaluate your current physical condition by identifying the history of the condition, the mechanism of the injury and understand the current subjective complaints.

The PT will analyze your movement patterns, range of motion, strength, functional movements, balance, coordination and neurological clinical presentation (reflexes, sensation).  The PT will look at any additional diagnostic testing provided such as x-ray results, laboratory tests or surgical or physician’s clinical notes or referral letters.
The PT assessment will also include applicable questionnaires (outcome measures) using reliable and valid measures to evaluate your current conditions.    Here at OPTHEALTH, we use best practice techniques and evidenced-based practice to evaluate your injury, illness or disability.

We continue to maintain our credentials and improving our knowledge base through continuing education, attending conferences and peer case conferences.  We are confident that we at OPTHEALTH are providing optimal healthcare and rehabilitative care for our clients.

    Nancy is so wonderful. She is very attentive and in-tune with her clients needs, and provides quality treatment! I have been having lower back, shoulder and neck pain for years and Nancy has helped me to alleviate much of this pain. Nancy treats all her patients with the utmost level of care - to Nancy you are not a client, you are family.
