  • Full Rehabilitation program before and after back surgeries
  • Pain management
  • Manual therapy
  • Exercise therapy
  • Education to not only help you to get rid of pain but to stay well and return to work and lifestyle activities safely
  • Help to manage your pain without unnecessary medication, injections or surgery
  • Communication with your doctor to inform them of your plan of care and progress and when a referral is necessary

BACK PAIN CONDITIONS THAT WE TREAT

Most commonly lower back pain is the result of an acute injury, heavy lifting, repetitive sprains, prolonged sitting, and poor posture that puts excessive strain on the spine and surrounding muscles and ligaments. 

Sciatica

The term ‘sciatica’ is used for pain resulting from the compression or irritation of the Sciatica nerve, which is the longest nerve in the human body. It runs from the back of the pelvis right to the feet.

SI Joint (Sacroiliac Joint) Pain & Dysfunction

Sacroiliac Joints (SIJ) pain and dysfunction link the lower spine to the pelvis. To form the SI joints, the right tailbone connects with the left sides of the pelvic bones. The SI joints need to form a rigid connection, allowing the person to moves, but only to a certain degree.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal Stenosis is the narrowing of the foramen and spinal canal, resulting in the nerve roots become compressed. The spinal canal is the center of the spinal column and the spinal foramen passages become narrowed. Spinal stenosis is due to the slow, degenerative aging process of the spine and occasionally due to an injury, causing it to congeal and calcify.

Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)

Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) refers to the arthritic changes in the spinal discs as you grow older. Characterized as soft, the compressible spinal discs allow flexibility and movement. Degenerative disc disease occurs in the lower back and the neck. The changes in the discs cause pain in the neck, back or both and radiating pain to arms or legs.

Pregnancy Related Back Pain

Pregnancy-related back pain is commonly experienced by expecting mothers. The intensity of back pain can be controlled with proper care through physiotherapy, exercising, massage or other treatments. Most pregnant women develop back pain during their second trimester. 
 

 

Spondylolisthesis

Spondylolisthesis refers to a condition where one vertebral bone slides forward over the bone below it. It happens when there is a problem with one of the small joints that line up the bones in your back. This can cause the vertebral bone to get out of alignment.

Piriformis Syndrome

A rare disorder, Piriformis syndrome occurs when the piriformis muscle in the buttocks compresses the sciatic nerve. This compression is caused when the piriformis muscle clenches or spasms. The piriformis muscle can compress the nerve during activities like running, climbing stairs or sitting for long periods of time.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I need a referral from my doctor for physiotherapy?

To see physiotherapists, massage therapists, and chiropractors in Physiomobility, you do not require a doctor’s referral. However, some insurance companies require that you submit a Doctor’s referral with your claim form.

For Orthotics and orthopedic footwear, a requisition by a chiropodist or physician is usually required. Our Chiropodist will complete such referral as part of your Orthotic assessment which is sufficient by most insurance providers; however, some insurance providers only accept physician notes. We recommend that you clarify the requirements with your insurance provider.

For Compression stocking and braces, requisition by a physician is usually required.

*** WE NEED A REFERRAL FROM YOUR PHYSICIAN OR SURGEON for OHIP covered physiotherapy after knee, hip and shoulder replacement operations. If you are not directly referred to our program and would like to receive your post operation rehabilitation in our clinic, you could request a referral from the hospital or we can request an approval on your behalf prior to your operation date. Contact our administration team for more information.

Are your services covered by Insurance?

Most extended health insurance plans cover the cost of the services at Physiomobility. Payment is required at the end of each session. You will be provided with a receipt detailing the type of service you received, applicable fees and provider’s registration number to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.

Can you directly bill my insurance provider?

Registered Physiotherapy, Registered Massage Therapy, Chiropractic care, Acupuncture, bracing, and orthotics are generally covered by most extended health insurance policies. We recommend that you call your insurance provider to determine the extent of your coverage.

Physiomobility is an approved provider for direct billing for a growing list of insurance providers. Great-West-Life, Sunlife, Manulife, Desjardins, Johnson are just to name a few. We can assist you to inquire and see if your insurance plan approves direct online billing for you.
