Physiotherapy Toronto FAQ

Physiotherapy is anchored in movement sciences and aims to enhance or restore function of multiple body systems. Physiotherapists are committed to health, lifestyle and quality of life. This holistic approach incorporates a broad range of physical and physiological therapeutic interventions and aids.

What are the Types of Physiotherapy Treatments

Physiotherapists are able to perform a number of different types of treatments such as Manual Therapy, Acupuncture, Shockwave Therapy, Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy and much more.

Regular Physiotherapy Versus Manual Therapy Treatments

Our Physiotherapists incorporate manual treatments into their practice and do not just focus on giving you stretches and exercises. Although important to your recovery, they also incorporate many other therapies based on your injury.

Are Physiotherapy Treatments Painful

While we’re not going to say you won’t experience some pain and discomfort, our intention is to not cause pain and do not want you to be in pain. Most often pain is caused when you are asked to stretch a painful and/or swollen joint or tissue. Immobilizing or taking pressure off the injury will lead to more severe long term problems if we don’t move it or put pressure on it.

What Conditions to Physiotherapists Treat

What to Expect During Your First Physiotherapy Visit

During your initial visit with one of our Physiotherapists they will perform a complete Health History followed by treatment.

What Should You Bring to Your Physiotherapy Assessment and Session

You don’t need to bring anything with you to your physiotherapy session other than maybe shorts if the clothing you are wearing is not accessible.

What You Should Wear to Your Physiotherapy Sessions

During treatments it is a good idea to wear clothing that is loose and accessible for treatment. We also have shorts and tanks at the clinic if what you are wearing is not suitable for treatment.

How Often Should I Get Treatments at a Physiotherapist’s Clinic

The number of treatments you should get will depend on the treatment plan recommended to you by your Physiotherapist along with your injury and lifestyle.

How Many Physiotherapy Visits Will You Need

That will also depend on your injury and the plan recommend to you at the time of your initial visit.

How Long Do Treatments and Sessions with a Physiotherapist Last

The initial session will range between 40 to 50 minutes and follow up visits are 20-40 minutes.

What to Do After Physiotherapy Treatments

After your physiotherapy sessions your Physiotherapists will give you some home care suggestions to work on between treatments to get you feeling better faster.

What to Do if the Problem or Pain Returns

The persistency and length of the problem and pain will depend on the injury and the compliance of the patient to do the homecare suggestions set out by the physiotherapist. If the pain returns after a while of being pain free it is a good idea to come back and see your therapist to determine what the issue is.

Does Physiotherapy Care Require a Referral from my Doctor

Not Typically. A Physiotherapist does not need a referral from a Doctor to begin a treatment plan. If you plan to claim the treatment through your Extended health Benefits then you may require a Doctor’s note.

How to Select a Physiotherapist

  • Word of mouth
  • Friends, family and co-workers
  • Referrals from other health care practitioners
