What can physiotherapy do for me?
Physiotherapists are experts at improving the function of the muscles, joints and nerves. If you have aches and pains lasting greater than 2 weeks, consultation with a physiotherapist is recommended. Depending on your evaluation, treatment options can include muscle release, joint manipulation, acupuncture, and advanced electrical modalities.
Do I need a doctor’s referral?
Physiotherapists are primary care providers and do not require a doctor’s referral. Having said this, physiotherapists traditionally do work with physicians and may request you to follow up with your family doctor. For some insurance providers, a doctor’s referral may be required.
Does insurance cover the cost of physiotherapy?
Most insurance providers cover physiotherapy. Navigating the various systems can be complicated. For car accidents and work related accident injuries, physiotherapy is typically covered. For private insurance plans and veteran affairs, funding levels can vary. There is limited coverage provided by Alberta Health Services for certain cases. Contact our team and we can assist you in accessing resources and answering any questions you may have.
How long are treatments and assessments?
Assessments will take longer than treatments and are necessary to get more detailed information about your individual case. Assessments are also when the treatment plan is determined. Treatment times can vary depending on the nature of the injury and how much each individual can handle per visit. Treatment times typically last 20-40 minutes.
