"Thanks so much for the amazing and encouraging work you do!"

I went into Strive physiotherapy after breaking seven bones in both of my feet, couldn't walk or put weight on my right foot and was in so much pain. Now I'm getting my 10k+ steps in every day and with Mike's treatment and carefully and patiently planned exercises, am almost recovered completely only months later! I recommend Strive for any pain or injury. Thanks so much for the amazing and encouraging work you do!

Commonly Asked Questions

Many of our virtual physiotherapy patients have questions before booking.  Here are some of the most common questions we hear:

What Is Virtual Physiotherapy?

Virtual physiotherapy is an online rehab session where you and your physiotherapist communicate over a live video chat via phone or computer.It's the remote delivery of physiotherapy services using online technologies to people from the comfort of their homes.

Who Is Virtual Physiotherapy For?

Virtual Physiotherapy may be suitable for any person who is in need of ongoing physiotherapy services but may be unable to travel to the clinic for in-person care.

Am I a Good Candidate For Virtual Physiotherapy?

Not everyone is a good candidate for this kind of service. It really comes down to your circumstances. The best way to know for sure is to use our free discovery session. You'll speak with a registered physiotherapist directly. Together, you can discuss and decide if virtual physiotherapy is a good option for you before starting any kind of treatment.

When Would Virtual Physiotherapy Not Be Appropriate?

Virtual physiotherapy can provide an option for assessment and treatment when an in-person visit is not possible. It is up to you and your physiotherapist to determine what is best for you, and whether the benefits outweigh the risks.

Will I Still Get Good Quality Care?

Expect to receive the same safe, quality care that you would get during an in-person visit. Physiotherapists are expected to meet the same Standards of Practice regardless of how the services are delivered.

Don't Treatments Have To Be Hands On To Work?

Hands on care has its advantages, but so does virtual physiotherapy. Being that we are focused on movement and exercise quality, our physiotherapy treatment style is already well suited for online rehab. We can watch, modify, and correct exercise and still make modifications to your rehab as needed. We also instruct you on how to perform effective hands on self treatments.

What Equipment Will I Need To Connect With a Physiotherapist?

Not much really. You simply need either a laptop, tablet, or mobile phone with a camera and audio to see and speak with your physiotherapists. You will also need access to the internet. We will provide clear instructions and links to the web conferencing program we use online.

What Equipment Will I Need For My Treatments?

We have purposely designed our virtual physiotherapy program to utilize what you have around your home. Some treatments won't require any assistive devices. Your physiotherapist will guide you through what assisitve devices you can use around your house if required.

Is Virtual Physiotherapy Covered By Insurance?

Yes, many (not all) insurance companies will cover virtual physiotherapy / telerehab services. Our care team will guide you through the paperwork. You can also pay by credit card and e-transfer if coverage is not available to you at this time.

Step 1: Schedule A Free Session

Virtual physiotherapy can be a very effective solution for pain, but it's not for everyone. At Strive Physiotherapy we offer a free discovery session. During this free session we will ask you a series of questions to determine if virtual physiotherapy is a good fit for you, and of course answer any questions you may have. If we're a good fit, we'll schedule a convenient time for your initial virtual assessment.  

Step 2: Welcome Email Is Sent

Following up on our discovery session, you will receive a welcome email containing the date of your initial assessment, a simple medical questionnaire, and clear instructions on how to get connected for your first virtual appointment.  

Step 3: Initial Virtual Assessment

Your first virtual appointment is an initial assessment where a Strive's registered physiotherapist collects important information about your pain and uses it to develop a personalized therapy program. By the end of this session, you will know exactly what is going on, why it's occurring, and how we plan to help fix it. Expect your initial assessment to be around 60 minutes.  

Step 4: Guided Therapy sessions

Each follow up session is about 30 minutes long and are guided therapy sessions which ensure you are doing all the activities and exercises correctly during the course of treatment.  

Step 5: Follow Up

We continue to follow up (even after therapy ends) to ensure you stay on track to maintain your goals.
