Do I Need A Doctor's Note To Begin Physiotherapy?
No. You do not need a doctor’s referral to receive physiotherapy, however if you are submitting your therapy through your private insurance company, you may want to check to see if they require a doctor’s referral before they will provide extended coverage. Each plan is different. If you have any questions, please contact us.
You MAY require a referral for physiotherapy related to an ICBC claim. Please inquire with your ICBC adjustor.
How Long Will My Appointment Take?
It depends on what time slot you booked for. We generally book 30 min to 1 hour time slots with longer appointments for first visit and new complaints.
If you are a new patient, please fill out the intake forms before arriving. If you do not fill them in advance, please arrive 15 minute before your scheduled appointment time.
What Do I Need To Bring To My Appointment?
Please bring the following to your appointment:
Tank top - if you are being treated for any shoulder, neck or arm problems.
Shorts - if you are being treated for any back, hip, knee, ankle or foot problems.
Shoes - bring the shoes you use to participate in your sports or recreational activities. For example, if you are being treated for a running injury please bring your runners.
Orthotics - similar to shoes, bring any orthotics you use on a regular basis.
