Be Informed and Make Good Decisions about Your Health

When you book an appointment with or visit a physiotherapist for the first time you want to feel informed and have the information you need to make good decisions about your health.

And don’t forget that you can always contact the College’s Patient and Caregiver Help Team to ask questions about physiotherapy. The Patient and Caregiver Help Team provides a free service to anyone looking for information about physiotherapy. 

Consider asking:

  1. What should I expect on my first visit?

  2. How long will my appointment be?

  3. What should I wear?

  4. Will it hurt?

  5. How many appointments will I need to get better?

  6. How much will it cost? And how will I need to pay?

  7. Is the physiotherapist registered? Be sure to look the person up on the Public Register before your first appointment.
