We see a wide range of soft-tissue injuries including whiplash, work-related injuries, pregnancy, and chronic pain to name a few. Legacies provides you with the most flexibility in billing options, and we’re unique in that we electronic bill third-party insurances such as ICBC, WCB (Worksafe), MSP, RCMP, and Veteran Affairs (DVA) to help make the cost as low for you as possible. We understand the stress of being injured under an insurance claim, so we do everything we can to make your therapy experience simple and positive.
What to Expect:
During your first appointment, the therapist will complete a medical history and fully assess the reason for your visit. This step is essential in creating a “baseline” to measure results against, and to also determine the best approach to take in resolving your problem.
For the treatment, the therapist will instruct you how to be positioned on the treatment table. Often a patient would be asked to partially disrobe (in which the therapist leaves the room while you do so) in order to use an oil or lotion for a specific technique. However, this is always your choice and disrobing is not mandatory for treatment. Using knowledge of anatomy and clinical science, the therapist will perform a variety of manual techniques, often using different degrees of pressure through their hands, specifically to gain therapeutic results.
After the treatment has been performed, the therapist will re-assess the area of concern. This is where you will see measurable results from the visit. Based on all of this information from the visit, the therapist will outline an individualized and specific treatment plan, to get you better as soon as possible. The degree of injury and your overall health will determine how often you need to come, and how long. Your visit will also include recommended exercises to complete as home-care, which will accelerate your recovery.
As visits progress, continual assessment will also continue. Good communication from your Registered Massage Therapists will help you make informed decisions about your therapy, and evaluate a steady progress towards recovery. Our Registered Massage Therapists will always send a Progress Report back to any referring physician to ensure good communication of your therapy plan, unless directed otherwise.
