FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What Should I Wear To My Appointment?
We always recommend that you wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing for your physiotherapy appointments. You may also be required to expose the injured body part
(So if dealing with knee pain, try and wear shorts!)
What Is the Intensity of Each Session?
Your physiotherapist will be working you hard during your appointment. But as opposed to personal training, your rehabilitation will be directed only at targeted areas to rehabilitate your injury and prevent injury recurrence. Expect to work up a sweat and experience a mild amount of muscle soreness the next day.
When Should I See Results?
Best evidence will suggest that you should train your weaknesses 2-3x per week. Your rehabilitation should be gauged every 6 weeks (think, if you’re starting a gym program, it takes time to get these changes!). But, if we reassess your strength and mobility levels, we expect to see significant changes compared to your baseline measures every 6 weeks!
I Have Muscle Soreness. Is This Normal?
In Short. Yes.
Muscle soreness generally begins the next day. It should be a mild to moderate amount of soreness that generally dissipates within 1-2 days. If you are experiencing soreness for 3-4 days after your treatment, we have generally pushed things too hard. It is important to communicate this with your physiotherapist who can adjust your next training session.
For tendinopathy rehabilitation, it is important that your pain levels do not exceed a 4/10 level during your rehabilitation session, nor in the 24 hours following your exercise.
