What is Physiotherapy?

Do I need a doctor referral?
No, you do not need a doctor's referral to receive physiotherapy. However, some insurance plans require a referral for coverage. Please check with your benefits provider if they require you to obtain one prior to your appointment.
If you have received a doctor's referral for physiotherapy, please bring it with you. It may provide information with any diagnostic reports related to your condition or injury (X-ray, MRI, CT scan, etc)
What should I bring?
Please bring comfortable clothing. T-shirt and shorts are recommended.
What should I expect during my first physiotherapy appointment?
Your physiotherapist will review your health history and discuss your injury. We will then explain the process of the physical assessment and obtain your informed consent to assess and treat you. All techniques will be discussed first and only the treatments you are most comfortable with will be administered.
