Frequently asked questions
Do I need a doctor’s referral to come to physiotherapy?
Patients do not need a referral to be treated by a physiotherapist. However some private insurance companies do require a doctor’s referral. Please check with your private insurance company before making an appointment.
How much does physiotherapy cost?
Please call our clinic reception for our current fee for service rates
How many visits will I need?
This is highly variable. You may need one visit or you may need a few. It depends on your diagnosis, the severity of your impairments, your past medical history, etc. You will be re-evaluated and when you see your doctor, we will provide you with a progress report with our recommendations.
Who will see me at the clinic?
You will be evaluated by one of our licensed and highly trained physical therapists and he/she will also treat you during subsequent visits. Unlike some clinics, where you see someone different each visit, we feel it is very important to develop a one-on-one relationship with you to maintain continuity of care. Since only one physical therapist knows your problems best, he/she is the one that will be working closely with you to speed your recovery.
Is my therapist certified?
All our therapists are licensed by Health and Care Professionals Council and Chartered physiotherapists Society.
What do physiotherapy programs include?
Your physiotherapist will take a history, perform a physical examination and develop a treatment plan with you. Your treatment plan may include customized exercises, manual therapy or any of the treatments listed in our treatment section.
What should I expect on my fist visit?
How soon can I get an appointment?
Within 24 hours, unless it is an injury that has just occurred, we will see you within a few hours
What do I need to do after my treatments?
Some patients will need to continue with home exercises. Some may choose to continue with a gym exercise program. Others will complete their rehabilitation and return to normal daily activities. It is important that you communicate your goals to your therapist, so he/she can develop a custom program for you.
