What to Look for When Choosing a Physiotherapist 

Now that you’ve decided that you want to try physiotherapy, the next step is finding the right physiotherapist. When it comes to evaluating your physiotherapist, be sure to look for the following:

  • Location – Where your physiotherapist’s office is located can make a big difference during your treatment. Is the office on your way to work? Found near your home? If you need more than one or two sessions a week with your physiotherapist, finding an office near you is ideal as it encourages you to attend all your sessions as well as saves on gas and travel time.
  • Relationship – Each physiotherapist is unique and whether or not you like them can affect the way you handle your physiotherapy sessions. Feeling comfortable is important. All physiotherapists are quite knowledgeable about the many health conditions that are treated with physiotherapy, although some may have more expertise in certain areas like sports medicine or kinesiology. Be sure to find someone who is focused on the area you need while providing a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere you can work in. 
  • Session Length – A good physiotherapist will be able to educate you on the length of your sessions and how many you will need after your initial evaluation. This will allow you to plan your travel and personal schedule accordingly. On average, a physiotherapy session can last between 30 to 60 minutes depending upon your condition.
