Visiting the Sporting Edge Physiotherapy Clinic
What to Expect on Your First Visit:
On your first visit to Sporting Edge Physiotherapy, your current physical function will be assessed and evaluated during a 60 minute session with one of our staff physiotherapists. We will measure your movement and strength and do a thorough assessment of your joints and soft tissue. Your physiotherapist will also discuss your full health history and current symptoms with you. Please bring any documentation regarding your injury (e.g., test results, referrals). Part of your assessment time will also be used for treatment. Please wear comfortable, loose clothing that will allow your physiotherapist to access the injured area of your body for treatment. Your treatment could include muscle stimulation, stretching, joint and soft tissue massage, and exercise instructions and education.
Payment for Treatment:
Physiotherapy services are not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP), but many extended health care policies will cover physiotherapy in part or full. Your insurance provider may require a physician’s referral for your coverage. Please contact your insurance provider for their specific reimbursement requirements.
