Q: What can Occupational Therapy help with?

A: Occupational Therapy helps with rehabilitation of many different disabling conditions related to accident, disease, aging, developmental or emotional problems.  The goal of an Occupational Therapist is to enable clients to perform their activities of daily living independently and productively.  

 

Q: What does a typical visit entail?

A: When you come in to the clinic for the first time, you will be asked to fill out a confidential health history form, and a consent form.  Then your therapist will perform an assessment, and you will have a treatment.  During your first visit, you and your therapist will determine when you should come back for a follow-up visit and/or the subsequent visits according to the agreed-upon treatment plan.  

 

Q: How many treatments will I need in order to get better?

A: You and your therapist will determine the best course of action based on your specific diagnosis, your treatment goals, and your lifestyle and schedule.  There is no pre-determined set of rules that will dictate the number of treatments you will need. 

 

Q: How do I pay for my treatment?

A: Manitoulin Physiotherapy Centre accepts cash, cheque, Debit, Mastercard and VISA. 

 

Q: Are Physiotherapy or Massage Therapy visits covered by OHIP?

A: Unfortunately, OHIP doesn’t cover either physiotherapy or massage therapy. However there are some other publicly funded programs that you may qualify for to access physiotherapy treatment. Please call the clinic to discuss your eligibility.

 

Q: Will my extended health benefits cover my treatment?

A: Many insurance companies do provide benefits that include health care services such as physiotherapy, massage therapy, chiropractic care, naturopathic care and acupuncture.  We advise you to contact your insurance provider to learn what you are covered for, and for how much.  In many cases, Manitoulin Physiotherapy Centre can bill the company directly for your visits.  Please let us know if you would like us to bill your insurance, and we can discuss how to set this up.

 

Q: Do I need a doctor’s referral in order to receive Physiotherapy or Massage Therapy?

A: You do not require a referral from a doctor to come in for a Massage of Physiotherapy treatment.  However, some insurance companies require you to produce a referral in order to access your coverage.  Again, we recommend that you contact your insurance company to find out their particular policies.

 

Q: Where is the Manitoulin Physiotherapy Centre located?

A: We are located at 82 Bay Street, on the bay in M’Chigeeng, a central location on Manitoulin Island. Please refer to the map below.
