Before treatment can proceed, your therapist needs to understand more about the origin, nature and extent of your complaint. Assessments help the therapist to isolate which structures are involved and which techniques are going to be best suited to treat you safely. Assessments are mandatory and the time needed to perform them will depend on the complexity of your condition. These assessments will also help the therapist determine your impairments and functional limitations which are necessary to determine short-term and long-term goals for the treatments.  There are many different types of assessments that your therapist may perform.
Your therapist will discuss the assessment findings with you and provide you with treatment options. Massage Therapy and Remedial Exercise are most common but should your condition be outside the scope of practice for a massage therapist in Ontario, then your therapist will refer you to the appropriate practitioner or physician.
Your massage therapist will give you certain stretching or strengthening exercises that you can do at the clinic, at home, in the gym or in a pool. You may also be given postural awareness exercises that may help in the treatment or prevention of poor posture or poor ergonomic body use. These exercises are intended to help you to be an active participant in your own care while in between treatments and after discharge.
once your treatment has been administered your therapist will check in with you a few days later to establish your response to the treatment.
Once all the goals of the treatment have been met, your therapist will discharge you from the current treatment plan. If you have other areas of the body that you would like to address, your therapist will re-establish another plan and move forward.
