    Yes. It does not matter which physiotherapy clinic you go to, as long as the physiotherapists who work there are Registered Physiotherapists, meaning that they are regulated by the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario.

  • What should I know about physiotherapy treatments?

    With physiotherapy, it’s important to know that the overall goal is to restore pain-free mobility and function and to prevent the injury or pain from recurring. Our physiotherapists evaluate your movement patterns, identify the cause of your pain, and work to manage or eliminate it altogether. Physiotherapists are trained medical experts when it comes to musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. They work closely with physicians to make sure that your treatment plan is as efficient and effective as possible. Physiotherapy is a medical, hands-on approach to relieving pain and restoring function. While every patient’s condition and pain is unique, our physiotherapists will use a variety of gentle hands-on techniques, exercises, and equipment to relieve pain quickly and restore your function to optimum levels.

  • Are PT treatments uncomfortable?

    Good communication with our therapist will help minimize any discomfort. We want you on your way to quick pain relief and back to normal activities. Physiotherapy is not meant to hurt, but to relieve pain! There is a chance, however, as you restore your mobility that your pain levels will fluctuate. You might experience some temporary soreness from using muscles that are weakened or recovering. Rest assured that this is a normal response to physiotherapy treatment and not a cause for concern.
