Our Approach

Physiotherapy, at its most basic, is the restoration of movement. There are many different techniques used to achieve this end goal. Joint Reaction Health Center’s philosophy and approach is strongly based on the premise that the body is a system of interrelated parts and that we must treat the body with this in mind to achieve optimal health and wellness. We DO NOT treat symptoms, but rather focus on the problem to return the individuals to optimal health, wellness and functioning.

Below you will find a brief description of the techniques that are used in our treatments. However, all treatments are individualized and no recipe approach will be given to members at our clinic. Treatments change and evolve as the individuals improve and must be modified to ensure continuous forward momentum. This individualized approach is the only way to continue on the path to ultimate wellness, change and optimal functioning.

Physiotherapy FAQs

Is Physiotherapy covered by OHIP?
Physiotherapy is not covered by OHIP, however it is covered by almost all extended health care plans.
Do I Need a Doctor's Referral?
You do not require a doctor's referral to be treated by a physiotherapist. If you have an extended health care plan however, your insurer may require a doctor's referral in order to reimburse you for physiotherapy treatments. This is why it may be a good idea to get a referral before you submit your claim for reimbursement.
How Long will my Visits Take?
You can plan for your first physiotherapy assessment and treatment to be approximately 1 hour long, and subsequent treatments to be 45 minutes to 1 hour. However treatment times do vary. You will have 15-20 minutes of one-on-one time with your physiotherapist at each session. We do not charge by the hour - we charge by the treatment. No alteration of these fees will take place as per our College guidelines.
