Thank you for considering Physiotherapy III. Please browse our frequently asked questions to find answers to common questions. If your question isn’t answered here, or you require further assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Please make sure we can access the part of your body that you want help with. If it’s a shoulder injury we appreciate a tank-top for women that shows the shoulder blade area. If it is a hip or knee injury, please bring along a pair of shorts. We have spare shorts and shirts for people who forget to bring their own, but we can’t guarantee that you will like the colour.
No, is the short answer. Physiotherapists like to work closely with your physicians, but a referral from your family doctor is not necessary. The longer answer is that some extended health plans may require a referral before they will fund or provide reimbursement for your treatments. It is important to check with your extended health plan beforehand. If you qualify for OHIP funded services - a physician or nurse practitioner referral is needed.
For your convenience, we direct bill most Insurance companies to save you time. Most benefit packages will cover Physiotherapy treatments. The extent of coverage varies with each individual policy. Please check with your insurance provider.
OHIP funds short-term management of an acute condition or flare up of a chronic condition, provided you meet one of these criteria set up for the Ministry of Health:
The MOH has provided our clinic a fixed number of patients a year. We might have a wait list.
Your initial assessment can last up to one hour or longer, and appointments after that will take anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour.
Every condition is individually evaluated, based on the person and severity of their condition. Your therapist will advise you on an appropriate treatment plan after the initial assessment.
