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 visit, your therapist 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.
We provide Direct Billing to a number of insurance plans, including ICBC, WSBC, DVA, Canada Life, RCMP, Blue Cross, D.A. Townley, Empire Life, ClaimSecure, Sun Life, Chambers of Commerce, Desjardins, Johnson Inc, Manulife Green Shield, Co-Operators, Equitable Life, and more. If you're unsure if your plan allows direct billing, feel free to contact us.
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 , modalities such as ultrasound, shockwave, interferential current, laser, EMS, TENS, and other treatments like taping constitute a typical physiotherapy session at Qualicum Physio.
Some of our therapists are trained in Intramuscular Stimulation and/or dry needling, and this can be utilized in conjunction with standard physiotherapy to aid in your recovery. Mention your interest during booking or 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 with instructive videos to make sure that you're exercising safely even if we aren't there to demonstrate.
With tools for strengthening, mobility and proprioceptive retraining, our gym had everything necessary to build you back up after injury.
Our Pool Therapy Program operates at Ravensong Aquatic Centre in Qualicum Beach. Located on Jones Street downtown, this is a fully equipped public facility, an excellent environment to exercise and build strength, mobility and endurance. The class runs from 10 - 11 am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We prefer to see patients for a pre-admission assessment unless being referred from another therapist. Attendees are expected to follow Ravensong's health and safety guidelines when attending. Our sign-in sheet is located at the front desk when checking in, and fees are arranged at our office, there no additional fees at the pool.
