All patients with peripheral joint osteoarthritis (mild through severe) can be seen in this clinic for assessment and treatment. Patients who participate in this clinic will complete an education section, have a physiotherapy assessment and a consultation with a sport medicine doctor. Referrals to other health care providers will also be made as necessary such as to an orthotist, occupational therapist, pharmacist, orthopaedic surgeon, nutritionist, or psychologist. The cost to attend the clinic is $50, which partially covers the cost of education materials and the physiotherapy assessment. There is no cost for you to see the doctor.
Osteoarthritis Patient Information and Education Videos
The osteoarthritis team strongly recommends that all of our patients watch these two videos before attending our clinic for an assessment. The information in the videos may answer some of your questions about osteoarthritis and will help you prepare any other questions you have for our team.
