Appointment Prep


How long is my physiotherapy appointment?

This depends on the injury and type of treatment you require. But expect to be in the clinic for approximately 30 minutes. 

Do I need a referral from my doctor to attend North Ajax Rehab?

No, you do not require a doctor’s referral to receive our services. However, some insurance companies require a doctor’s referral before they reimburse treatment costs. Check your insurance plan.


What should I wear on my first visit?

In general, wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely. If you have problem areas on your upper body (neck, back, shoulders, arms), wear a tank top or sleeveless shirt. If you are coming for a lower-extremity problem, wear shorts or loose pants.


How many treatments will I need?
