Triangle Physiotherapy follows a “no-waiting” policy. Appointments are available as soon as the next day or sometimes on the same day depending upon your convenience & ours.
Please plan on coming 10 minutes before the start of your appointment to complete your new patient paperwork which includes information about your injury & a brief medical history. Bring along your physician's referral, your insurance card (if applicable) and wear comfortable clothes.
When you come in to Triangle Physiotherapy for the first time, our Registered Physiotherapist will do a detailed evaluation of your condition and identify the source of your discomfort/dysfunction. Each patient's situation is unique and a treatment plan will be devised especially for you.
You will then be given a treatment session which generally consists of various electro-therapeutic modalities, hands-on manual therapy techniques and active exercise programs. You will also receive instruction in a home exercise program as well as education on proper body mechanics and posture to prevent re-injury.
Your first appointment at Triangle Physiotherapy will last between 45 minutes to an hour and will involve a detailed assessment by the physiotherapist followed by a treatment session.
Subsequent treatment sessions will be 30 minutes to an hour long depending upon your condition.
Physiotherapy is considered a primary care health profession. This means that people have direct access to physiotherapy services without the need for a physician referral. However, in order for physiotherapy services to be covered under some extended health insurance plans, you may require a doctor's referral.
Triangle Physiotherapy is not an OHIP funded clinic. Beginning April 2005, OHIP only covers Physiotherapy treatments for people aged 19 & under & 65 & over at Designated Physiotherapy Clinics.
The Physiotherapist will perform a detailed assessment, discuss your problem and formulate an individualized treatment plan by determining your needs & goals. The frequency of your visits will depend upon your condition & the initial evaluation outcome.
An Initial Evaluation Report will be sent to your family doctor, outlining the results of the assessment & the treatment plan devised for you. During the course of your treatment we make it a point to communicate with your family physician or referring doctor to make sure he/she is aware of your progress.
I have been referred to another physiotherapy clinic by my doctor. Can I come to your clinic instead?
Yes. It does not matter where you go for your physiotherapy treatments as long as the Physiotherapist is registered with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario.
Orthotics or 'Orthoses' are inserts that comfortably fit into shoes; they are designed to support and improve the functioning of feet. Health care practitioners will prescribe orthotics to patients suffering from chronic foot or lower limb problems or to athletes to help maximize performance during sport. Orthotics can decrease pain, not only in the foot, but in other parts of the body such as the knee, hip and lower back.
