Commonly Asked Questions & Answers

Explore our FAQs for answers to common questions. Gain valuable insights from our detailed responses, enhancing your wellness journey with informed, seamless guidance towards better health.

How Long Will It Take To Reduce My Pain?
The time it takes to reduce pain can depend on a lot of factors, including the severity of the injury, the duration you’ve been experiencing pain, the number of body areas affected, your body’s motor patterns and habits, along with many other factors. Of course, your physiotherapist will do as much as they can to help speed up the healing process while also respecting the normal healing timeline of the body. Your physiotherapist will give you specific exercises to do tailored to the stage of healing of your injury. As the body begins to heal, we will increase the challenge of the exercises to continue to improve the capacity and resilience of the body area, which is often accompanied by a reduction in pain.
When the Pain Goes Away, Does This Mean I’ve Fully Recovered from My Injury?
Pain reduction is just one measurement of progress in your journey to a full recovery. In order to know the area has fully healed, we need to test the capacity of the area to ensure it is strong enough to perform your desired movements. During this phase of your recovery, we emphasize movement optimization which involves teaching your body new patterns in order to not default to previous non-optimal patterns. Your physiotherapist will also monitor that your body is progressing towards full range of motion and strength in multiple planes of motion. Typically we find that this process of building resilience continues even after the pain goes away, and it’s a crucial part of the recovery process in order to strengthen your body completely so that the original issue doesn’t return.
How Soon Can I See a Therapist?
Your well-being is our priority, and we understand the importance of timely care. At our clinic, we strive to provide prompt access to our skilled therapists. We prioritize scheduling flexibility to accommodate your needs and aim to schedule your initial appointment as soon as possible. We value the urgency of your situation and are dedicated to delivering compassionate and patient-centered care from the moment you reach out to us. We offer a range of appointment times, including before and after work hours and are conveniently located near local transit so you can easily come to the appointment during the day if you choose. Contact us today, and we’ll ensure you receive the attention and care you deserve.
Does a Previous Injury Relate to My Current Pain?

Great question!  Often the body is very good at compensating for previous injuries and so previous injuries can have a significant impact on your current discomfort. During your initial assessment, your physiotherapist will discuss your previous injury history and timeline to identify any connections between your past injuries and your present pain. 

In order to determine the root cause of what’s currently going on, your physiotherapist will then complete a detailed assessment of the body including areas that are currently bothering you and areas that may have been involved in previous injuries. 

The body is really good at compensating for previous injuries and sometimes old movement patterns continue to occur even after an injury has been healed. By assessing previous injuries, we aim to uncover the underlying cause of what’s driving your pain today.

How Many Times Do I Need to See a Physiotherapist?

The number of appointments you need can depend on a variety of factors including the severity of your injury, the normal healing process of the body as well as your personal goals. 

At our clinic, we understand that your healing journey is unique. Our registered physiotherapist will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs, considering factors like condition severity and individual progress. We’re dedicated to guiding and supporting you towards lasting results and a pain-free life.

What’s Different About the Connect Therapy™ approach?

ConnectTherapy is an assessment framework that considers the whole body and what has led to you being here today (including past injuries). Unlike traditional approaches that typically focus and treat only the injured area, we also consider how other areas (and sometimes areas much further away) can influence how you move the injured area. 

Through our assessment, we seek to understand relationships between the injured area and other areas of the body. Sometimes, treating only the local area can have a negative effect on other areas of the body (which is not good!). Sometimes, treating the injured area is exactly what is needed to recover. Sometimes, treating a remote area of the body (particularly, the thorax) can have a positive effect on the injured area. By understanding these relationships between body areas (what makes a body area better or worse) we get a complete picture of what is needed in order for you to recover fully and to address the issue entirely. This gives your physiotherapist a clear picture on what needs to happen in order for you to feel and move better.

What If I Cannot Make an Appointment?

We understand that life can be unpredictable, and sometimes circumstances arise that make it challenging to keep scheduled appointments. Your health and convenience matter to us. If you are unable to make an appointment, we kindly ask that you inform us as soon as possible and with at least 24-hours notice prior to your scheduled appointment. We appreciate you letting us know about changes early, as this allows our therapists time to be able to fill the open appointment slot with other patients on the waiting list who are in need of care. That way, we can accommodate your needs and that everyone is able to receive the care they need.

The best and fastest way to reschedule an appointment is through our online booking system.

Do You Include at Home Exercises?

Absolutely, yes! Home exercises are an important part of the recovery journey in order to teach the body new motor patterns that will support more optimal pain-free movement. These exercises are designed to address each of the movement components you’ll need to be able to carry out in order to confidently perform the sport and activities you love.

At-home exercises will be an important complement to your in-clinic treatments, empowering you to accelerate healing and achieve your desired results.

Can You Direct Bill to My Insurance?
Yes, we offer direct billing to most major insurance companies to save you time so you can focus on your health and not paperwork.
Do I Need a Referral for Physiotherapy?

In most cases, no referral is needed to visit a registered physiotherapist. However, there are a small number of extended health insurance companies that may request a doctor’s note in order for physiotherapist services to be covered. Please check with your insurance provider.

How Is Parking Around the Area?
There are several options for parking and we’ve researched them here for you:

  • Free 2-hour street parking between W 7th and W 8th St between Ash, Heather & Willow St as well as on Ash St between W 12th and W 13th Street.
  • Metered street parking around the area
  • Paid underground parkade in the alley behind the building. Just take one elevator to get to the clinic.
  • Validated parking options at nearby retailers: City Square Centre & Whole Foods.

Still have questions about parking? Give us a call and we’ll be happy to explain further.

When I was preparing for my first marathon, I was beset by glute and hamstring pain that made it difficult to train. I went to see Brennan on a friend's recommendation and I was very impressed by the quality of care I received. He helped me understand where the muscle imbalance in my body was and gave me the tools to strengthen my weak piriformis while reworking my running routine to reduce the chances of further injury. After our session he stayed communicative and followed up with me to make sure my training was still going well and to ask if the exercises were helping to reduce the pain. By the day of the marathon I was running virtually pain-free and was able to run my goal time of a 4:15:00. I have since been seeing Brennan ongoing for all my fitness needs since, and highly recommend Brennan to anyone who wants to feel in control of their running fitness and manage their injuries.

I have spent many years with quite a few injuries that have confounded many health practitioners including well over 20 physiotherapists. Raj is one of the first to really look past the surface and get to the heart of what is going on. He has been able to build a program that has helped me see improvements for the first time in many years. Incredibly knowledgeable, personal and professional while spending the time needed to really get to the bottom of how to move forward with my injuries. I would highly recommend Raj as one of the best physios I have ever worked with! Thank you Raj!

I would highly recommend Brennan for any issues requiring physiotherapy. Brennan was able to completely resolve the pain and numbness I was having with my shoulder blade and left arm. Brennan is very knowledgeable and uses a variety of modalities in his treatment. He is also a good communicator and he was able to help me understand what was causing my problem and how to resolve it. I have no hesitation in recommending Brennan for your physiotherapy needs.

I've been seeing Brennan for the better part of a year and have nothing but good things to say. The space is really clean and functional with two treatment rooms and a room for exercises/demo. Brennan will spend dedicated time with you to discover what's causing your issues and find treatments/exercises that will help long term. Be prepared to take the homework he gives you seriously if you want long term improvement (as with all physio) but even in 30 of 45 minutes of treatment, I always leave his office with my body feeling better and more free than when I walked in.
