FAQ

  • QIs It Ok to See a Chiropractor if I’m Pregnant?
    Yes. Physiomed doctors have treated countless mothers-to-be. Our patients have achieved excellent results in managing discomfort and other back conditions related to their pregnancy.
  • QWhat Is Physiotherapy?
    Physiotherapy is the primary health care profession that promotes wellness, mobilitiy and independent function.
  • QCan Physiotherapy Help Me?
    Physiotherapists manage and prevent many physical problems caused by illness, disability and disease, sport and work related injuries, aging, and long periods of inactivity. Physiotherapists are skilled in the assessment and hands-on management of a broad range of conditions that affect the muscoskeletal, circulatory, respiratory and nervous systems.
  • QHow Does Physiotherapy Work?
    Physiotherapists assess and analyze the effect of illness, disability, injury and inactivity and develop specific treatment plans based on their assessment and the individual client’s goals.
  • QHow Will I Know if It’s Working?
    The goals you establish with your Physiotherapist are used to measure your progress. Your physiotherapy treatment plan will be as unique and individual as you are, and your active participation will be essential for success.
  • QDo I Need a Referral From a Doctor for Physiotherapy?
    No. Physiotherapists are primary health care professionals (just like doctors and dentists) meaning you can go directly to a Physiotherapist. You do not require a doctor’s referral to see a Physiotherapist. Insurance companies, however, sometimes require a doctor’s referral before they will reimburse cost.
  • QWill My Insurance Cover Physiotherapy Treatment?
    Funding of Physiotherapy services varies across Canada. Generally, treatments provided in a hospital setting are covered by provincial health insurance plans. Funding varies when services are offered outside a hospital. Be sure to ask your Physiotherapist for details. Most extended health insurance policies cover some Physiotherapy services. All provinces allow Physiotherapists in private practice to bill clients directly or to bill third-party payors–such as insurance companies and workers’ compensation boards.
  • QWhat Should I Look for in a Qualified Physiotherapist?

    Physiotherapists are credentialed, university-educated health professionals. Ask your Physiotherapist about:

    • University degree in Physiotherapy
    • License/Registration
    • Membership in the Canadian Physiotherapy Association
