The Mobility Clinic is an inter-professional clinic that involves a physician, nursing, chiropractic, Occupational Therapy, Social Work and Pharmacy. The role of the Mobility Clinic is to provide additional care to rostered patients of the CFFM who have any sort of mobility issue. That might include a patient who has difficulty getting on to a typical high examination table and would benefit from the use of a more accessible examination room equipped with an electronic lowering exam table, overhead ceiling lift or just more time for a detailed assessment. Your family physician may also refer you to the Mobility Clinic with a specific issue to address such as walking assessments for falls.
The types of patients seen range from individuals with spinal cord injury, Multiple Sclerosis, stroke, arthritis and falls to name a few.
The assessments often take 1-1.5 hours; feedback is provided to the patient and to the patient’s family physician. Follow up is done either by telephone or repeat visit. The Mobility Clinic staff has also seen patients in their own homes/living environment for assessment.
If you are booked to come to the Mobility Clinic, please bring the shoes you typically wear, any braces, canes, walkers or wheelchairs, plus your medications.
If you think that you would benefit from an assessment at the Mobility Clinic please speak to your physician or any team member at the CFFM. For spinal cord injury patients from Waterloo Region wanting a Mobility Clinic consult, please have your physician complete this Community Referral Form.
