Start your recovery today!
We are open with extra health and safety precautions in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines. Please click on the link below to read how we're keeping ourselves and our community safe, and how to prepare for your visit.
Physiotherapists are primary healthcare providers, meaning we are trained to recognize/diagnose injury and can be seen without needing a doctor's referral. We can help you get started on your recovery sooner!
On your first Physiotherapy visit, your PT will assess your condition and put together a plan for your recovery. Usually you will start on treatment in the same appointment. You will receive a combination of education about your condition, treatment, and recommendations for things you can do at home to help speed your recovery, including exercise.

Townley, Empire Life, ClaimSecure, Sun Life, Chambers of Commerce, Desjardins, Johnson Inc, Manulife Green Shield, Co-Operators, Equitable Life, and more.

At Qualicum Physiotherapy Clinic, we're committed to your recovery and helping you get better as quickly as possible. If we think you need additional resources we will direct you to someone in another discipline who can help. We will communicate with your physician to ensure if there are any red flags that they don't go unnoticed. We value every member of the healthcare team and are committed to contributing our part to your overall health.
A mix of manual therapy, exercise, treatment modalities such as ultrasound, shockwave, interferential current, laser, EMS, TENS, dry needling/acupuncture/IMS or taping constitute a typical physiotherapy session at Qualicum Physiotherapy.
Our Physiotherapists are all currently trained in Intramuscular Stimulation / dry needling, and this can be utilized in conjunction with standard physiotherapy to aid in your recovery. Our therapists can discuss with you whether this would be beneficial to your condition.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, we've been utilizing Telehealth to connect with patients when seeing you in person isn't possible. The Physitrack program gives us a secure way to communicate via phone or video, and it also provides a user-friendly platform for prescribing home exercises or instructive videos to make sure that you're exercising safely even if we aren't there to demonstrate.
