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

Here's Physiomed North York honouring one of our favourite patients 💙

It's been 11 years since we first saw this lovely lady. Since then, she’s brought in her mother, kids, and co-workers for care. We've seen her retire, come out of retirement, then retire again. She followed us as we moved 3 times! We’ve been through so much together.

Thanks Eula for your support over these last 11 years. It’s because of patients like you we come to work everyday.

Here's to another 11 years! 🥂

We've been open for over a month. But are you still wondering what appointments look like during COVID-19?

Here's an example of how things look at Physiomed Maple!

The big change you’ll notice is at the beginning when you first walk in the door:

1️⃣ We'll greet you, as usual, but do ask that you walk to the front desk and wait.

2️⃣ We'll confirm we have received your COVID-19 screening questionnaire. If we haven't, we'll verbally go through it with you.

3️⃣ We'll also perform a temperature check.

4️⃣ Afterwards, we ask that you have a seat in the waiting room and your practitioner will take over from there.
