Frequently Asked Questions

Canadian physiotherapists need to be graduates of a four-year university program. The undergraduate program usually focuses on a medically related field like kinesiology or exercise science. The two-year master’s program in physiotherapy covers all modalities and treatments that a physiotherapist can use. This program is designed to give a solid understanding of the body and how it works. Before becoming a Canadian physiotherapist, individuals must pass both a practical and written exam. To further their knowledge, physiotherapists must commit to continuing education for a lifetime.

A referral from a doctor is no longer required to see a physiotherapist. Your insurance company might require that you see a doctor and get a referral before you can see a physiotherapist. In most cases, however, people can book appointments directly without the need for a note from their doctor.

Physiotherapy is safe and painless. It is possible for some soreness to occur after a session. Physiotherapy activates deep tissues. Sometimes, soreness can be caused by deep tissue work and stretching. One should note that it takes hard work to get better.

Our bodies use pain as a defense mechanism to limit motion and alert us of a problem. Physiotherapy can’t solve all pain-related problems. Sometimes, surgery or other medical interventions may be necessary. In the majority of cases, however, physiotherapy is a permanent solution to pain. It can help clients identify ways to prevent future pain by changing the motions and patterns that caused it.

Each situation is unique. Some clients only require two to three visits for a physical therapist. Some clients, such as stroke victims or people with an acquired brain injury, may need to see a physiotherapist for several years. Every physiotherapist should aim to eliminate the client’s need to see them. They must provide effective and professional treatment that solves the client’s problem over the long term.
