For Patients

Your First Visit

Your first visit to Vernon Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation Clinic will start with a complete assessment of your injuries or condition. Our qualified physiotherapists will devise a customized program to help you reduce pain and return to your normal level of activity as quickly as possible.

You should expect that your first treatment will also be delivered at your initial visit. It is a good idea to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. If you normally wear corrective lenses or use a hearing aid, you should have these devices in place to ensure that you and your physiotherapist can communicate effectively.

Bring to your first appointment any reports you may have from your doctor or copies of any x-rays. It is also important to bring a list of any prescription and non-prescription medications you may be taking routinely. Bring any Medicare cards as well.
