Reviews

Super happy with front of house staff and my Physiotherapist, Kristy Wu. It is important to me to support another person of colour as this industry is run dominantly by white men. I feel incredibly safe and comfortable with everyone I have encountered there. I appreciate Kristys approach, knowledge, and her compassion to towards the aide to heal the body. I highly recommend this place, and Kristy to anyone out there.

I've been seeing Dr. Michael Herman for just over 2 months now, he's been helping me with my plantar fasciitis and a nagging wrist injury. Dr. Herman is fantastic, he not only provides effective treatment targeted at the root cause of the problem, he always takes the time to explain what he's doing and more importantly, why he's doing it. He also sends you a detailed exercise plan in case you forget the number of repetitions you have to do. I've gone from not being able to run at all to running 5k consistently every second day. Being in the healthcare field myself, I see a lot of different practitioners and I would highly recommend Dr. Herman for physio treatment.

I had shoulder surgery and went to this office and saw Stephanie the physiotherapist. Within 3 months, I was back golfing. She was awesome. The shoulder has never felt better. There have been no problems. I would recommend Stephanie for any physiotherapy you need. Also, the staff here are all wonderful.

FAQs on Physiotherapy

On your first visit, our physiotherapist will ask questions about your symptoms, and perform a complete biomechanical, functional, and neurological assessment to determine the cause of your pain, limitation, or dysfunction. Once the condition has been diagnosed, they will design a treatment plan to improve mobility and strength, and decrease pain.

In most cases, our physiotherapists will provide treatment on the first visit. The only exception to this would be cases where the patient’s symptoms indicate a more serious underlying medical condition. Luckily, our physiotherapy team is expertly trained to ensure that cases that require further imaging or management are referred to the proper healthcare professional.

Our physiotherapists offer one-on-one, personalized sessions using a variety of techniques. All of our therapists are fully certified in IMS/dry needling, acupuncture, shockwave therapy, kinesiotaping, manual therapies, and laser therapy. By combining these skills, they are able to get fast, effective results for their patients, and help educate them to prevent future injury.

Unlike big box physiotherapy clinics that double and triple book and treat in an open concept space, our treatments are always one on one and in a private room. If a physiotherapist wants to show a patient stretches or exercises, we have a fully equipped rehab space that can be accessed by our practitioners. But, the majority of our treatments are hands on, in private, and are always geared towards getting patients better as quickly as possible.

A good chiropractor and a good physiotherapists are actually quite similar. Both provide hands on, one on one treatment. Both are educated in multiple treatment techniques, and both are able to customize treatment to fit a patient’s specific condition. All of our physiotherapists and chiropractors are similarly trained.

The one difference might be that chiropractors are able to adjust, which might be more beneficial for acute, joint-related injuries, while physiotherapists have more experience with rehabilitation, and might be the better option for a more long term, lingering issue. A lot of our patients actually seek out both therapies; chiropractic for their acute pain, and physiotherapists to rehab and better prevent future injury.

Encompass Sports Therapy offers physiotherapy services from 7am to 7pm Monday through Thursday, 7am to 5:30pm on Friday, and 9am-1pm on Saturdays. Our physiotherapists are always accepting new patients, and you can check their availability by clicking our Book Online tab or by calling the clinic! Encompass Sports Therapy direct bills to most insurance plans.

In most cases, you do not need a referral from a doctor to see a physiotherapist. They are considered primary healthcare provider so you can see them directly without a referral from a doctor. All the major personal health insurance companies do cover physiotherapy treatment. Please make sure to check in with your insurance company if you are covered for the physiotherapy services.

 

It’s always a good idea to wear something comfortable in which you will be able to move freely. Bring a pair of shorts if it is a lower back, hip, knee, ankle, or a foot problem. Bring a tank top/ t-shirt if it is a neck, upper back, shoulder, elbow, or hand problem. In case you forget to bring comfortable clothing we do have shorts and gowns in the clinic for our clients. Your comfort and personal privacy is always respected by our therapists.
