Any condition that our Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Naturopaths or Sports Medicine Physicians normally treat in clinic can be treated virtually. We’ve treated a wide variety of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions through tele-rehabilitation and have had great success. The feedback from our patients has been tremendous and the referrals into the program continue to grow steadily. If your therapist determines that your specific condition would benefit from in person care they will let you know. Your health and wellness is our top priority and we will always make sure to be clear about the best treatment options available to you once we understand your condition.
All telehealth appointment bookings can be made very easily using our online booking site. When it’s time for your appointment, you will be connected to your health practitioner through a secure and private video conferencing platform.
During a typical virtual session, your practitioner will investigate your pain, injury or condition and address any questions or concerns you might have. You can work with them to establish your treatment goals and collaboratively set a plan on how you are going to achieve them. Your health provider will educate you on your specific condition and advise you on simple strategies that will lead to impactful changes. If working with a physiotherapist or chiropractor, they can also build an individualized exercise program for you that addresses your specific movement dysfunctions and addresses the root cause of your injury. The exercises may focus on mobility, strengthening, stabilization, co-ordination, balance or self mobilizations and release work. They will help you set goals and keep you accountable and motivated to reach them.
For your virtual session, you will require a device that is connected to the internet with camera and audio capabilities such as a computer, tablet or smart phone. Before your appointment begins you will want to make sure you have read the email instructions from our admin team on how to connect to your virtual session and to test your connection. If this is your first appointment with us you may also have some intake forms to complete.
You will want to find an open space in your home that will allow you to do exercise on the ground, against a wall, sitting or standing. Wear loose and comfortable clothes. Workout attire is recommended. You will want to gather any fitness equipment that you may have such as a foam roller, release balls (lacrosse, tennis), resistance bands, small weights or soup cans.
Most likely! After the COVID-19 pandemic, almost all insurance companies recognized that virtual care is essential and quickly improved their policies to include it. However, we recommend verifying the type and amount of coverage with your insurance provider prior to your appointment as all plans are different. Our administrative team can help by directly billing your insurance provider to save you time and eliminate paper work. Just ask us how you can subscribe to his helpful service.
In addition to direct insurance billing, we also offer secure online payments through Stripe that will allow you to pay for your session using your credit card. We accept Visa, Mastercard and Amex.
Yes. We use a safe and secure video conferencing platform to connect you with your health practitioner. This platform is PIPEDA and PHIPA compliant, which means it meets the standards for health privacy in Canada and Ontario.
