3. Do I need a referal by my family physician or other health care practitioner?
No, you do not need referral to be assessed and treated by a physiotherapist. Some insurance companies may need you to have Doctor’s referral in order to reimburse you. Please, check with your insurance company prior to booking an appointment.

Physiotherapy is a drug-free alternative to decreasing your pain and improving your function and mobility when you suffer from pain or malfunctioning of your muscles, joints or any other part of your musculoskeletal system. In many instances drugs are necessary, but we strive to enable your body to take care of your problem so that side effects of drugs or any other procedure can be minimized and/or eliminated.
Physiotherapy also can optimize and improve your current performance, and help you to prevent re-injury.
