What to Expect from Your First Visit

Do I need a doctor referral to see a registered physiotherapist?

You do not need to be referred by a physician in order to make an appointment at Brady Physio+. You can make an appointment independently if you have concerns about an ongoing or acute physical situation.

Does my physiotherapist communicate with my doctor?

Yes, if your physician or other health care professional has referred you to us, we will send progress reports to keep them updated with your progress. If your physiotherapist has a medical concern regarding your care, they will discuss them with you and follow up with your doctor.

What does a physiotherapist do?

With your independence in mind, the physiotherapist’s goal is to restore, maintain and maximize your strength, function, movement and overall well-being. Physiotherapists combine knowledge of how the body works with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of injury and disability.

How long will my first appointment be?

Your first physiotherapy session will take approximately 45 minutes to an hour and includes an initial assessment of your concerned areas followed by an initial treatment. Each of our clients receives a comprehensive evaluation and examination in a private one-on-one treatment room. When all concerns are recognized and evaluated, a diagnosis is made and our findings are discussed with each client before developing an individualized treatment plan that works for you and your lifestyle.

What should I wear to my appointment?

It is best to wear loose, comfortable, breathable clothing to your appointment. Shorts and a t-shirt are best if you are undergoing exercise therapy in the gym, as well as a pair of runners.

What treatments are offered at Brady Physio?

Effective treatments include joint mobilizations, exercise, electrotherapy, therapeutic ultrasound, heat, ice and acupuncture. Our professional health care team is dedicated to helping you by using the most effective and advanced pathways back to health. Visit our modern convenient locations at 1500 Paris St. and 1280 Lasalle Blvd.
