How Physiotherapy Can Help You

Is Physiotherapy covered by my insurance?

Typically yes, OHIP covers most of the cost of your physiotherapy treatments. However, this is not always the case so it’s best to check with your provider for more details.

Can I see a physiotherapist without a doctor’s referral?

In most parts of the country, you need to be referred by a doctor to see a physiotherapist. In some cases, this is a GP or rheumatologist but you can also be referred to a physiotherapist by another healthcare professional or even self-referral (your GP should be able to tell you if this is possible in your area). Your therapist will be happy to discuss the best route for you to take.
