will work with you to achieve maximal physical
functioning and independence by providing
personalized physio treatment based on your specific needs.
The goal of therapy is patient independence in
managing their injury or medical condition and by
providing education, the physiotherapist will help
you to understand your condition so that you may
decrease or prevent reoccurrence of disability.
Hip and Knee
Total hip and knee replacements are some of the most
commonly performed surgical procedures today and an
essential part of the rehabilitation process after
surgery is physiotherapy. We aim to maximize your
function and independence and minimize complications
after surgery. Joint weakness may persist for up to
two years after surgery, even for people with a
normal walking pattern. Many studies have shown that
weakness is a major risk factor for falls in older
persons. To counteract such problems, gentle
exercise is important in rehabilitation after hip
replacement surgery. Specific, personalized
exercises to strengthen your muscles and restore
movement for walking and other normal daily
activities are given to each patient. Education is
an important part of rehabilitation and includes a
review of hip and knee precautions, anatomical
reasoning for restrictions, and safe mobility and
postures. Our clinic also provides land and pool
based programs which are popular and cost effective.

treating musculoskeletal conditions.

Sports Injury Coverage:
When a parent or guardian pays for league fees for their child to play minor sports, part of that fee goes to insurance. It is generally known that this insurance covers catastrophic incidents like death and very serious injury, but what is less well known is that it also covers physiotherapy fees for most major sports. If the injury occurs in a sanctioned practice or game, the injury is eligible for physiotherapy coverage by the insurer. Some sport associations require that you use your private extended health plan coverage first but for those parents without a private health plan through work, this sport insurance will begin right away. You will need to pay for sessions over the counter and submit receipts to the sport insurance company. Coverage extends to referees and officials as well as athletes.
The parent must notify the insurance company within 30 days of the injury and must bring the child in to see the doctor within 90 days of the injury and have the requisite forms completed by the family doctor and sent to the insurer in order to claim fee reimbursement. See instructions below regarding viewing and printing claims forms.
Physician’s forms for most sports injuries are located here
and here for hockey players.
Provincial and nationally carded athletes (Bronze, Silver and Gold level) can be covered through
The Canadian Athlete Insurance Program (CAIP).
