FAQ�S

Do I need a referral from a doctor in order to receive physiotherapy assessment or treatment?

Physiotherapy is now a considered a primary access health care service, meaning that anyone can access physiotherapy services directly, and no referral is necessary from a doctor. Although most insurance companies do not require a referral from a doctor in order to receive reimbursement for physiotherapy services, there are still some insurance companies that do require a doctor�s referral. It is best to check your insurance policy and contact your insurance provider to seek further clarification.

Where is your clinic located?

IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME! Patrick will make your life easy and will bring his �portable clinic� right to your home or office.

What will happen the first appointment?

Patrick will perform a detailed clinical assessment asking you questions relating to your injury. He will also do a complete physical exam and assess your range of motion, strength, flexibility, balance etc. Patrick will provide a diagnosis for your injury and will take time to explain your injury, what it will take to get better, what YOU can do and what HE can do to help get you better as quickly as possible.

Patrick will help you set goals and will work with you to make a personalized treatment plan.

Finally, Patrick will provide some treatment (usually a combination of hands on treatment and exercises) which will depend on patient goals and may include anything listed in the treatment section.

Is there anything I can do before my first appointment?

The more you know about your injury the better you will be able to understand it and become motivated and engaged in your rehab process. The more engaged you are, the better your recovery will be, plain and simple. You can easily find information relating to your injury on the internet. There are also some helpful information included in the Patient Information section.

You can come up with specific questions to ask your physiotherapist and think about some goals you would like to work on with your therapist. Patrick will take time to help you understand all you need about your injury and your recovery and will help you get and stay motivated throughout the process.

Is Physiotherapy covered by OHIP/ extended health benefits?

Although costs for physiotherapy services are not covered by OHIP, they are often covered (fully or partially) by extended health benefit plans. Insurance policies vary according to their providers so it is best to contact your extended health benefit provider to learn about your specific policy and re-imbursement for physiotherapy services.

Furthermore, physiotherapy services can also be claimed as medical expenses when you file your income tax.

How much does an assessment or treatment cost?

Please refer to the APPOINTMENTS/RATES section.

How many sessions are required?

This is a difficult question and the answer depends on several factors including type of injury, assistance/support available, patient goals and preferences, patient finances, etc. Each injury needs to be specifically assessed and Patrick will be sure to answer this question during your initial assessment. Patrick will commonly recommend between 6 to 10 sessions but can do more or less depending on the circumstances. If all you want is an assessment and a home exercise program Patrick is happy to do this. Alternatively if you want Patrick to act as a coach/guide to help you do your exercises he is also happy to do this.
