Do I need a doctor's referral?
You don’t need a referral to see a physiotherapist. However, a number of extended health benefit plans may require a doctor’s referral to be eligible for coverage. Each plan is slightly different, so it’s important to check with your current provider to determine if you need a referral for treatment.
You need a pracID referral to see Dr. Nulliah, Primary Care Sports Medicine doctor.
Who will be involved in my athletic development program?
Our S&C coach will sometimes collaborate with our physiotherapists during your S&C programming. However, S&C coaching sessions will be one-on-one with the S&C coach.
Mental performance sessions are conducted one-on-one with our mental performance consultant in a private room or virtually.
Physiotherapists and kinesiologists will be involved with your movement screening testing, sport injury strengthening and rehab, and recovery treatment.
Who will be involved in my sport injury management/recovery program?
The physiotherapist will conduct the initial assessment and then formulate a treatment plan.
The physiotherapist will always perform the technical manual therapy, follow ups, and/or needling therapy when appropriate. The fully trained kinesiologists will help carry out portions of the treatment plan as well. As a result, the patient will experience both the physiotherapist and assistant during his or her treatment time.
