I saw Whyte Ave Sport and Spine for help with running injuries. They provided me with different treatments and exercises which allowed me to continue to compete and train. Without their help and expertise this would not have been possible.

Answers


Do I need a doctor’s referral for physiotherapy?

No, you do not need a referral from your doctor. Physiotherapy is “Direct Access” so you don’t require a doctor’s referral to book an appointment. However, a few insurance companies still require a referral from your doctor to cover the expenses, so please check with your insurance provider.

How many physiotherapy treatments do I need?

The number of treatments required depends on a number of issues, individual rate of healing, how long the condition has been present, how much local scar tissue is present, your age, and so on. If the condition has been present for an extended period of time it may take several treatments. Treatments are generally provided either once or twice per week in order to help the body to heal and accommodate local changes in nerve and muscle function.
