Physiotherapy Role

Physiotherapists work closely with the hematologists and nurses to provide:

  • Education to patients and families about how to prevent bleeds
  • Treatment and rehabilitation following bleeds into joints and muscles
  • Advice regarding suitable recreational and sports activities for people with bleeding disorders
  • Advice regarding joint protection
  • Advice and treatment for pain management
  • Assistance to determine when an orthopedic consultation is needed
  • Regular comprehensive assessment to monitor joint status

During your review visit you will see a physiotherapist for assessment. One-on-one follow-up appointments are also available pending patient and physiotherapy availability. You can contact the physiotherapist to set-up an appointment through email.
