Virtual Physiotherapy – Covered By Insurance!


We want to make sure you continue to have access to physiotherapy services while social distancing!

Your rehab does not need to be delayed or interrupted due to an exposure to Covid-19!

Whether you are currently in treatment or considering treatment for the first time – WHY WAIT? If you have an appointment, you don’t need to cancel due to an exposure – switch to virtual.  Your time is already reserved just for you – it is no hassle and we promise – you’ll understand what so many of our patients have been experiencing.  Many want to keep seeing us virtually even after they are cleared to come back in-person!

The longer you wait, the longer the healing process can take.  In fact, many of our patients PREFER doing some virtual visits in order to save time, stay safe and get the benefit of having the physiotherapist 1:1 and in your space.  Our physiotherapists have found it very helpful to see people in their own homes where we can see your ergonomic set up, your exercise space, and get an idea of what equipment you already have that can be used during your rehabilitation.

WE CAN HELP answer all your questions and ensure you get the right kind of care.

Virtual physiotherapy or Tele-health appointments happen FACE TO FACE on-line through a virtual visual connection where we can see and talk to each other, just like we are in the same room. Most extended health benefit plans are now covering virtual physiotherapy at the same rates as in-person treatment. At Bonavista Physiotherapy our philosophy has always been to promote self-treatment. As such, virtual physiotherapy is an easy switch for us and our clients.

What happens during a virtual physiotherapy visit?

  1. We take a history of your general health, lifestyle, and your injury to get an understanding of the condition (just like we do in the clinic)
  2. We do a comprehensive functional movement assessment and observe limitations (same as in-person)
  3. Evidence-based treatment, education (same as in-person)
  4. Individualized treatment – self mobilization, home exercises to reduce pain and improve mobility (just like in the clinic)
  5. Understanding how to manage and progress at home which is a huge component to recovery (no different than usual)
  6. Ongoing follow up to progress through all stages of recovery
  7. In – person consultations are always an option if you and your therapist decide on-line sessions can not fully resolve your problem

We recognize the importance of social distancing and staying safe during this difficult time but that doesn’t mean you need to stay in pain!! Many patients are following a hybrid model of care where some visits are on-line and some are in-clinic. We will make sure you get what you need to fully and quickly resolve your problem.

Tele-rehabilitation guidelines are in place for physiotherapists practicing in Canada and our technology is HIPPA compliant. Our Privacy Policy is all set up to cover tele-rehab
