What Will A Phyisotherapist Do?
A Physiotherapist will begin by performing a complete physical assessment and evaluation. This will include taking a personal health history to help determine what you hope to achieve, and setting treatment goals. Then the Physiotherapist will develop a treatment plan using a wide range of treatment techniques to improve range of motion, strength, function and to relieve pain.
Pain and injuries are not all the same, therefore, at Burlington Sports and Spine Clinic; treatment plans are not the same and we don’t have a “cookie-cutter” approach. We use a variety of evidence-based and modern techniques to develop a customized treatment plan that is tailored to your personal needs.
We encourage you to call or e-mail the clinic and we will make sure to answer any questions you may have.
Do I need a Referral?
You do NOT need a referral from your Medical Doctor to receive an assessment or treatment from a Physiotherapist. However, some extended health benefit (EHB) plans require a MD referral in order for you to claim physiotherapy and receive your insurance reimbursement.
