Virtual physiotherapy is completely optional but it is effective. Once Will completes your initial assessment, he will be able to offer options for treatment plans, including those that involve virtual treatment. Virtual appointments are easily joined by simply clicking the link to the secure, video conferencing platform.

Also known as physical therapy, physiotherapy is a type of health care wherein practitioners assist their patients in regaining their strength, mobility, and overall well being. Physiotherapists look at the body as a whole to determine the root cause of conditions, injuries, and pain. Physiotherapy includes rehabilitation and prehabilitation for primarily musculoskeletal issues, but can also include specialties for specific areas of the body.

While your doctor may refer you for treatment by a physiotherapist, no referral is required to attend physiotherapy.

All patients begin their physiotherapy journey with an initial assessment that lasts 60 minutes. During the assessment, your physiotherapist will utilize a combination of health history and current symptoms to determine a treatment plan. 

 

Treatments are all appointments following the assessment and include further therapeutic treatment as well as exercise evaluation, guidance, and prescription. Treatments are a duration of 30 minutes.

Though the number of treatment sessions required depends entirely on each individual, physiotherapists always do their part to get you feeling better as soon as possible. That said, physiotherapy needs a team effort for best results. Commitment to completing your exercises as prescribed will optimize the speed of your recovery.

Pre-rehabilitation (aka. prehab or prehabilitation) is a shorter-lived type of physical therapy with different goals than rehabilitation. A preventative form of physiotherapy, it’s used prior to a surgical procedure to improve post-surgical recovery. Prehab can assist post-surgery by limiting severity of atrophy, strengthening movement patterns to minimize lifestyle disruption, increasing the rate at which strength returns to affected muscles, and expediting the success of post-surgical rehabilitation. Additionally, prehabilitation can help reduce the number of post-operative rehab sessions, which could mean an overall reduced cost for the patient.

Unless otherwise instructed, aside from ensuring your clothing allows for some movement, you won’t need to bring anything with you. Though, if you feel you have any relevant medical documentation or imaging, you may wish to bring in. Your physiotherapist has everything you’ll need to be treated and practice your exercises. If your appointment is virtual, your physiotherapist will be able to guide you using your environment and its objects to your advantage. For virtual appointments, all you’ll need is enough space to swing your arms (think helicopter) and a device with a camera (cellphone, tablet, laptop, web camera).

We require notice of cancellation 24h or more before the scheduled appointment time. Some extenuating circumstances may be excused at the discretion of the clinic. Otherwise, if 24h notice is not provided, the full fee for the missed appointment will be charged. We ask that you please provide notice as soon as possible so that we may offer treatment during that slot to others in need.

The clinic is wheelchair accessible and offers an accessible parking spot close to the door, a ramp, and an accessible washroom equipped with support bars. If you have any specific accessibility concerns or require accommodation, please get in touch with us via phone or email. We’re happy to assist!
