Your First Visit

 

Before we get started, we would like to thank you for joining us here at Luxii in Westboro. We take a great deal of pride in how we treat our clients and look forward to you seeing the results firsthand.

Here is what you can expect during your first visit to luxii.

Preparation

If you want to save yourself some time, fill out this quick questionnaire so we can get a better understanding of what you are currently going through.

If you would prefer filling it out here at Luxii, that is great too but we ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled start time to ensure you receive the full allotted time with your physical therapist, chiropractor or massage therapist. 

Please bring your OHIP card as well as any private medical coverage cards that might be supplied by your employer. 

Please bring any doctor referrals. 

Please wear comfy clothing that will allow your doctor or practitioner access to the areas on your body that are a concern.  

Background

First things first, we will take a quick note of your medical history including allergies, previous injuries and all information that might be relevant towards your health. 

Then let’s have a good chat about your current problems or physical issues. When did it start? Where does it hurt? 

Finally, let’s chat about your goals. Are you simply here to alleviate pain? Are you looking to get healthier? Let’s work together on a plan that will increase the chances of reaching your goals. 

 

 

Baseline Assessments

Depending on what brought you here, your physical therapist will perform a series of examinations that may include some or all of the following:

Manual Assessment

Physical examination of muscles often referred to in the medical field as palpation as well as an assessment of accessory motions that are crucial to optimal movement performance patterns. 

Strength and Manual Muscle Testing

We’re checking for strength weaknesses and deficits of muscle control that might be affecting your optimal movement patterns. 

Range of Motion Testing (ROM)

This is an active and passive movement assessment to find any restrictions and what their cause might be. 

Postural Assessment

Part assessment and part education, we’ll go over the optimal postures for any activities you are involved in.

Neurological Screening

Strength vs sensation assessment as well as motor control to assess neurological involvement. 

Biomechancial Assessment

Let’s check out how you move in comparison to optimal movement patterns.
