Anyone with a painful condition resulting from sport, work, motor vehicle accidents, disease, surgical procedures, or activities of daily living would likely benefit from physiotherapy.
It depends on the condition. Mild strains or sprains tend to recover quickly (weeks) while severe muscle or ligament injuries may require a more lengthy recovery time (months).
No. Physiotherapists are primary healthcare providers which mean no referrals are required. However, if treatments are to be covered by ICBC or WCB, a referral is necessary before payments will be released.
They can. Injuries sustained from a motor vehicle accident, or while at work, require assessment from a physician to determine if the injuries would benefit from physiotherapy. If so, your physician will write a referral to physiotherapy.
