What do physiotherapists do?
Physiotherapists are trained in manual therapy, exercise, education, and many other techniques to help patients recover from all sorts of injuries. Physiotherapy is a treatment for many medical conditions, it's relatively inexpensive and offers an alternative to surgery.
Our team of physiotherapy professionals use manual therapy, contemporary acupuncture, multi-modality therapies, and corrective exercises to help those suffering from physical problems arising from disease, illness, injury, and aging. They rely on their years of experience and training to understand your problem and create an optimal treatment plan for your recovery.

Physiotherapy is treatment to restore, maintain, and make the most of a patient’s mobility, function, and well-being. Physiotherapy helps through physical rehabilitation, injury prevention, and health and fitness. Physiotherapists get you involved in your own recovery. (College PT)

Your Physiotherapist will create a treatment plan for you and work with our care coordinators to arrange a suitable treatment schedule after your first appointment.
As a general rule for booking follow-ups is that if you have an injury affecting a single part of your body (i.e. knee), then a 30 minute consultation is typically sufficient. If you have an injury affecting two body parts (i.e. both knees), then a 45 minute consultation is warranted. If you are seeking treatment for multiple areas in your body (i.e. head, neck, shoulders after a motor vehicle accident), then we recommend either a 60 or 75 minute treatment and consultation.
Each case is different and treatment time may vary depending on each individual.
Physiotherapy is often covered under group health benefits and insurance. This means that some, most, or all of your costs may be covered.
We treat each individual as their own, and treatment time may vary depending on your particular problem.
Does insurance cover Physiotherapy?
Yes, we accept most insurance plans including those associated with motor vehicle accident and work place injury claims. Please have a look at our insurance page for more information.
Many workers in Ontario have partial or full coverage for Physiotherapy through their workplace health plans. The physiotherapy patient is provided with a detailed itemized receipt listing the services provided, the credentials of our therapist, as well as payment details for reimbursement.

How effective is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy can be a safe alternative for individuals who may be considering medications or surgery to manage or treat their condition. Results from Physiotherapy are supported by scientific research and literature. Often it is used as a conservative measure which is easily accessible to patients over other more invasive and riskier interventions such as surgery or pharmaceuticals. With a good Physiotherapist your injuries may be resolved sooner and without spending as much!
Physio can be effective for many people for a variety of problems. Below we have provided links to some of the most up to date research supporting physical therapy interventions.
"..."all three treatments in our study led to substantial improvements in patient-reported shoulder pain and function. None of the treatments were clearly superior. Arthroscopic capsular release resulted in the least number of further treatments but carried higher risks and costs. The early structured physiotherapy pathway with steroid injection could be accessed quickly in the NHS, but more patients who had physiotherapy needed further treatment. Manipulation under anesthesia was the most cost-effective option but with a longer waiting time to access than physiotherapy. These findings should help clinicians to discuss treatment options with patients during shared decision making and encourage surgeons to use capsular release more selectively when less costly and less invasive interventions fail."
The differences in patient-reported outcomes between the treatment groups at 3 months were influenced by longer waiting times for the surgical interventions (26 [13%] manipulation participants and 46 [23%] capsular participants commenced treatment after the 3-month follow-up). The planned analysis of our primary outcome, OSS, adjusted for variable waiting times between the three interventions using additional data that was collected on the day of treatment and 6 months after treatment. In this analysis, the difference in benefit of capsular release over physiotherapy at 12 months included a confidence interval that marginally overlapped with the minimal clinically important difference of 5 points. Therefore, clinically meaningful group differences might potentially exist between capsular release and early structured physiotherapy in the wider population. We observed no meaningful differences in OSS between the two surgical interventions at any timepoint. Although patients with diabetes had poorer outcomes than patients without diabetes at all timepoints, we found no evidence of an effect on the primary outcome of participants' diabetes status, receipt of previous physiotherapy, baseline treatment preferences, or length of frozen shoulder symptoms at baseline.
Serious complications were rare, although the arthroscopic capsular release group was relatively less safe.

How can I get my Physiotherapy covered by OHIP?
Yes however, only for individuals 65 years or older, or 19 years or younger who are eligible. You will require a referral from a doctor or nurse practitioner.

- A flare-up or worsening of symptoms from a previous fall, accident, surgery, or chronic condition that led to a decline in function or movement
You must also:
- Have a valid Ontario health card, and
- Be 65 years or older, 19 years or younger, or any age if you were admitted to a hospital for an overnight stay within the last 12 months as the reason for your referral
You can also participate if you are approved for Ontario Disability Support (ODSP) or Ontario Works (OW). In that case, an Ontario health card is not required and there are also no age requirements.
