Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between physiotherapy and chiropractic care?

Both work with patients to diagnose and treat various musculoskeletal conditions. However, there are key differences between the two professions. Chiropractors focus primarily on the adjustment of the spine and other joints, while physiotherapists take a more holistic approach to care. In addition, physiotherapists frequently engage in rehabilitation after an injury or surgery, while chiropractors often focus on preventative care.

What is the purpose of physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a treatment to restore, maintain, and maximize a patient’s mobility, function, and well-being. Here are some benefits of physiotherapy: physical rehabilitation, injury prevention, and health and fitness. Physiotherapists ensure you get involved in your recovery.

What techniques do your physiotherapists use? Do they have any special certifications?

Physiotherapists use various techniques under the scope of physiotherapy practice. Here are some examples:

  • Electrical modalities
  • Joint mobilization and manipulation
  • Soft tissue release/massage
  • Intramuscular stimulation (IMS) and dry needling
  • Spinal decompression
  • Shockwave therapy

  • Cupping
  • Exercise prescription
  • Postural correction
  • Energy conservation techniques
  • Patient education/consultation
  • Telerehabilitation

Typically, there is no special certification required for most standard physiotherapy practices. However, certain techniques require a special course and certifications like joint manipulation and IMS/FDN.

Would you recommend patients participate in both PT and chiropractic simultaneously?

Usually, it is to patients’ benefit to take simultaneous/parallel treatment (physiotherapy, chiropractic, massage therapy, and acupuncture) to achieve maximum function, restore mobility, and get the most out of the recovery. It can vary from patient to patient.

We recommend the patient participates in other practices, considering contraindications and potential risk factors. Other factors need to be considered, like duplication of treatment, time, value, side effects, confidence, beliefs/trust, and over-treatments.

How should a new patient prepare for their PT appointment? Is there additional paperwork involved?

Patients must arrive 10 to 15 minutes before their first appointment (assessment visit) to provide enough and appropriate time to assess and treat their condition thoroughly. Bring respective documents, letters, or reports along with you to support paperwork.

We ask that new/regular patients keep the following in mind:

  • Bring or wear appropriate clothing/attire (e.g. sports bra/tank top, etc.) to your physiotherapy appointment.
  • Please provide 24 hours’ notice for appointment cancellation/rescheduling.
  • Keep your phone in silent mode or switched off to avoid disturbance and promote communication.
  • To avoid overcrowding, maintain confidentiality, and provide quality care, we provide one-on-one sessions with each patient.

Who would benefit most from physiotherapy?

Anyone can benefit from the physiotherapy scope of practice, suffering from musculoskeletal, neurological, cardio-pulmonary, and systemic conditions.

Will insurance cover PT visits?

Yes, most insurance companies cover these visits. Each company has a different pay structure, so it is best to check with them before your appointment, so you know what your coverage is.

Here are some common questions to ask your insurance company:

  • How much does it cover for physiotherapy?
  • How much does it cover per session?
  • Is it combined or individual coverage from other practices like massage, acupuncture, and chiropractic?
  • What is the benefit year cycle? (e.g. Jan to Dec, July to June, March to Feb, etc.)
