FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

How can a Physiotherapist help me?

A Physiotherapist can safely help you achieve your highest level of physical functioning (at any stage in life) by providing you with a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs.

Do I need a referral to see a Physiotherapist?

No. A referral is not necessary to be assessed or to be treated by a Physiotherapist. However, some third party insurance carriers may require a referral from a family physician or a Chiropractor for insurance claim re-imbursements.

Is Physiotherapy care covered by OHIP?

No. Chiro-Med Rehab Centre is not an OHIP clinic. In terms of publicly-funded in the private sector, as of April 2005, the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care only provides coverage for people under 19 or over 65 years of age, and only at one of the few designated OHIP-funded clinics in the province. However, many extended health care plans do cover a portion of Physiotherapy services.

How long will I need physiotherapy treatment?

The length of time you are under Physiotherapy care varies with respect to your age, symptom/complaint, prior health history, and the chronicity of the issue. Response to care differs for every individual; after the history, initial assessment, and your diagnosis, a personalized treatment plan will be recommended to you.
