Doctors and Physiotherapists working together to eliminate your pain
"After suffering from a wrist injury 6 years ago I went to Athlete's Care with the hope that they could help. I saw Henry Zhou and he fixed me right up. He created a comprehensive treatment plan for me and provided clear explanations throughout. After 3 months of therapy I have regained function in my wrist and can play tennis again. I would highly recommend Henry if you were thinking about booking an appointment!" PB
"I have been to a few physiotherapist's over the years at different locations for different issues. Nate Tsang however is one who really addressed my issues the most effectively. He is very professional and thorough in his assessment and treatments.
He takes the time to listen and at the same time explain everything you need to know. Highly recommended!" C.A
"I highly recommend Trevor as a chiropractor to anyone looking for help with mobility issues and chronic pain. He takes his time to investigate the issue and his goal is to make sure you don't have to keep coming back to him. I especially like that he uses acupuncture as well as manual adjustments. He healed me up and got me up and running for my first race injury free! The centre is really conveniently location and the receptionist is a real sweetheart!" S.T

Frequently Asked Questions
What happens if I'm not covered by insurance?
Some patients do pay out-of-pocket for physiotherapy. We accept most major credit cards, debit, and cash. We provide only the therapy you need, and we will empower you to supplement your in-clinic care with a home care program.
Do I need to bring anything with me?If you plan on having insurance cover your treatments, bring your insurance information and we can look into whether direct billing for physiotherapy is an option with your insurance provider. Bring your referral or doctor's note, if you have one. Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing.
What happens on my first visit?
You will be thoroughly assessed by a Registered
Physiotherapist. The physiotherapist will develop an appropriate treatment plan and get you started with treatment right away.
Is a doctor's referral necessary?
A doctor’s referral isn't necessary, but in rare cases, our physiotherapist may need you to see your doctor or a sports medicine physician to get further testing done. Note that some extended insurance may require doctor’s referral to get reimbursements for physiotherapy as well.
What shall I wear?
Comfortable, loose fitting clothing is suggested as specific areas in the body are subject for evaluation and treatment. For instance, if the issue is on you knee then it’s better to wear shorts or loose fitting pants that can be rolled up.
How many treatments do I need?
Number of treatments depends on your condition and the severity of your injury. Everyone responds differently to their type of treatment, but you will know on day 1, before you leave, what is suggested.
"Highly recommended. I have been going to this clinic over the past three years for an old injury that kept flaring up. The patience, quality of care and attention is outstanding. At first I saw a sports medicine doctor in the clinic (OHIP covered) and then followed up with a physiotherapist (Nate) and then chiropractor (Trevor). I am now well on my way to pain-free and flare-up free life and have worked my way up to 5 days a week of exercise. Very grateful and definitely recommend to friends."
