Frequently asked questions about Physiotherapy Clinics

Using medimap.ca you can easily find the best Physio clinics nearby. You can check their booking availability, and book a consultation using the medimap.ca website. The clinic may or may not do a follow up call prior to the consultation for things such as pre-screening tests, etc.

Physiotherapy clinic treatment can benefit a range of injuries and conditions. Below are some of the most common reasons people seek physiotherapy treatment in a physio clinic.

Physiotherapist for Back Pain Many patients see a physiotherapist for back pain—whether low, mid-back, or a chronic condition. A 2018 review of research found that physical therapy exercise should be the first approach to treat chronic lower back pain. Research also shows that it can help prevent problems too. Exercise alone decreased the risk of lower back pain by 33%. A 2017 study showed that most patients find a combination of physical therapy techniques helpful for sciatica pain.

Physiotherapist for Injuries You should consider seeing a physiotherapist for neck pain. For most patients, a combination of manual therapy, exercise, and education is typically effective.

Physiotherapist for Knee Pain Seeing a physiotherapist for knee pain can help you treat injuries or conditions, such as osteoarthritis (OA). One study found that all patients with moderate knee OA of varying pain levels can benefit from physiotherapy.

Physiotherapist for Vertigo Some people see a specialized physiotherapist for vertigo—the sensation that your surroundings are spinning. Research shows that vestibular rehabilitation may improve symptoms related to inner ear/balance disorders.

In addition to those common reasons for seeking treatment, physiotherapy may also be beneficial for:

  • Muscle problems, like weakness or tears
  • Joint dislocation
  • Arthritis
  • Headaches
  • Tendonitis and tendon tears
  • Rehabilitation after surgery
  • Disc-related conditions, like degenerative disc disease
  • Rotator cuff syndrome
  • Elbow problems (tennis or golfer’s elbow
  • Plantar fasciitis

Although not doctors, it is a regulated profession that requires an extensive amount of training to diagnose and treat ailments. A physiotherapist in Canada must earn a master’s degree from a physiotherapy (or physical therapy) program. Along with educational physiotherapist requirements, they must also register with the governing body in their province of practice.

Although they’re similar in some ways, their main treatment strategies are different. A physical therapist mainly guides you in stretches and ways you can improve your pain. A chiropractor also educates you but focuses on manual adjustments. Patients commonly see chiropractors for back and neck issues. Physiotherapists are frequently visited for soft tissue and musculoskeletal conditions.

For many concerns, like neck pain, you can see either practitioner. When this is the case, decide which clinic or treatment approach you’d prefer or book a consultation with both to decide. Some conditions may also be best treated by both.

Before booking an appointment, many people wonder if physiotherapy is painful. Physiotherapy shouldn’t be painful but as you stretch and exercise affected areas, you might experience discomfort. For example, as you regain mobility, some stretches can be challenging. In some cases, such as a physiotherapist massage or guided exercise, you might be sore the day later as your body recovers.
