Why choose York-Med Physiotherapy?
We, at York-Med Physiotherapy & Wellness center, place our emphasis on evidence-based practice interventions. Often you may find that in health care fads emerge and are implemented by various practitioners despite any lack of evidence suggesting a benefit. The treatment approach implemented by our practitioners is evidence-based and has been demonstrated to improve pain levels, facilitating a better quality of life.
Do I need a Doctor’s referral for physiotherapy/Chiropractic?
No, physiotherapists and chiropractors are primary health care providers that are able to diagnose your condition and provide a patient-specific treatment plan. A referral is not required for your Physiotherapist to assess and treat you. Some insurance companies, however, still require a physician’s referral in order for your service costs to be covered by your plan. Please check with your insurer to ask if they require a Doctor’s referral.
My referral has another clinic name on it. Will that be a concern?
No, not at all. You have a choice and the right to choose by whom you would like to be treated.
Will treatment be covered under my Extended Health Care Coverage?
For eligibility and plan coverage information please contact your insurance company or human resources department. You may want to ask about the maximum annual coverage, coverage start date, and physician referral requirements.
Is physiotherapy appropriate for my injury or condition?
If you are not sure, please feel free to call us and ask to speak to one of our Physiotherapists. We would be happy to talk with you. We can often direct you to one of our Physiotherapists with expertise in the area for which you need treatment, such as, but not limited to, disc herniation, arthritis, osteoporosis, TMJ (jaw), dizziness or incontinence.
What should I bring to my appointment?
Please bring a valid photo ID, medical requisitions and/or insurance information. You may want to have comfortable, loose-fitting clothes (e.g. shorts for lower body treatment and t-shirt/tank top for upper body treatment). Comfortable footwear is also advisable for exercise purposes.
