FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

LET US HELP YOU GET BACK TO YOUR NORMAL LIFE!

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a client-focused health profession, dedicated to assessment, treatment, and maintenance of physical function and performance.  Physiotherapy achieves this by:

  • Improving and maintaining optimal function and physical performance
  • Promoting optimal mobility, physical activity and overall health
  • Preventing disease, injury, and disability
  • Rehabilitating injury and the effects of disease or disability
Do I need a Doctor’s referral?

No.  Physiotherapists are primary health care practitioners and you do not need a doctor’s referral to see one.  Please note that some insurance companies still require a doctor’s referral in order to receive reimbursement for our services.

Will any assistants or aides be used for my treatment?

No.  At Avenue Physiotherapy, all assessments and treatments are performed 100%, one-on-one with a Registered Physiotherapist.  All Physiotherapists at Avenue Physiotherapy have undergone extensive, internationally recognized post-graduate education and we believe that in order to maximize your recovery, treatment must be one-on-one without the use of assistants.

Does Avenue Physiotherapy treat work-related injuries or injuries from car accidents?

Yes.  All patients are welcome at Avenue Physiotherapy regardless of how or where the injury or condition has occurred.

How do I pay for your services?

Forms of payment accepted are cash, cheque, Visa, Mastercard. We are able to bill most extended health carriers directly so you will only be responsible for paying the portion they do not cover. It is expected that you pay at the end of your session, at which time you will be provided with an invoice.  If you have insurance, you can then submit the invoice to your insurer to be reimbursed.  WSIB or your automobile insurance will be billed directly if your injury is work-related or from a car accident.
