FAQ

  • Physiotherapy is the treatment and prevention of physical injuries and movement problems. Education and prevention measures help patients gain the highest possible level of independent function.

    A physiotherapist is sometimes called a physical therapist. The terms mean the same thing.

  • 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.

  • Dress comfortably. You are welcome to bring your own shorts. We offer shorts and gowns. We ask that you remove your shoes at the entrance so you may want to bring indoor shoes or slippers.

  • Some of the common problems a physiotherapist helps with are the treatments of:

    • Injuries such as strains and sprains which require immediate care for swelling, tenderness and pain.
    • Rehabilitation of muscles after injuries, fractures or surgery
    • Neurological problems such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, or head injuries.
    • Jaw problems.
    • Headaches or any chronic pain symptoms
    • Post motor vehicle injuries
    • Post work (WCB) injuries
  • 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 treatment prescribed.

  • On your first visit your physiotherapist reviews your injury or condition and plans a treatment program for you. This includes the following:

    • Questions about your present condition and health history.
    • Physiotherapy examination to assess your injury or condition. This can sometimes temporarily increase your pain.
    • Review of your assessment findings with a recommended treatment plan
    • Your consent to treatment
  • Various questions about your condition and how it occurred are asked. Your health history helps the physiotherapist understand your current condition. They may ask you for information about:

    • The nature of the pain, such as location and intensity you are currently experiencing or have had in the past.
    • Your personal and family history.
    • Medications you are taking.
    • Treatments you have had recently or in the past.
    • The physical requirements of your job, lifestyle or leisure activities that may affect your condition or treatment.
  • The physiotherapist does a physical evaluation. Changing or removing clothes may be required to see the problem area.

    The physiotherapist may touch the problem area to see if there is any tenderness, swelling, or heat. Using their hands, they may test the problem area to see if weakness exists, if movement is limited, and how much pain there is.

    • “If you are happy with our physiotherapy service, we encourage you to tell others. If you are not satisfied, please tell us.”
    • Successful physiotherapy is based on good communication between you and your physiotherapist. Your physiotherapist may not be aware there is a problem unless you tell them.
