Who should use Telerehab?
Telerehab can be used by anyone who cannot leave their home or office for a certain reason. For example: pandemic, work travel, stay at home parent, sick and unable to leave home, living in a rural area/areas restricted to healthcare, or incarceration.
Telerehab can be administered anywhere with a secure internet connection.
It is recommended that the treatment be done in a quiet and safe area according to each patient's needs.
Getting Started with Telerehab
Each patient should have a well lit area to work in and have adequate room to move around. Patients can wear loose gym clothing they are able to move around in and roll up as needed for assessment. A sturdy chair with a back rest is recommended. The physiotherapist will make open suggestions to what else can be used for treating the patient. An electronic device with webcam and microphone will be required for telerehab.
Concussion is a form of brain injury caused by trauma.
Symptoms involve dizziness, headaches, fogginess, and nausea. Fortunately, physiotherapy can effectively assess and treat symptoms associated to concussions. Treatment methods such as manual therapy, Mckenzie Diagnostic Technique, acupuncture, exercise, and education can help significantly improve function.
Our physiotherapists use evidence based training to treat concussions and to help patients live functional lives.
Shockwave therapy uses mechanical percussion to remodel and provide healing to chronic injuries and scar tissue. It has been shown to be very effective for long persisting injuries such as tennis elbow, tendon or ligament injuries, surgical scars, osteoarthritis, and frozen shoulder. For any injury, 3 sessions minimum are required. This is not safe for use over recent fracture sites or open surgical wounds. Book today to get healed faster.

Benjamin Chan, Physiotherapist
Born and raised in Toronto, Ben studied at York University, where he completed his undergraduate degree in Honours Bachelor of Science Kinesiology. He then went on to complete his Masters in Physiotherapy at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, consequently working in a tremendously busy hospital outpatient physiotherapy department. Ben would go on providing freelance physiotherapy services for in home cases, senior homes, and senior day care centres before immigrating back to Canada. In the last 5 years of practice, Ben has gathered experience working with sports injuries, post operative care, assessment and treatment of conditions associated with aging, chronic pain, and exercise prescription. He enjoys actively involving his clients in the care plan, ensuring that each client understands their current situation and providing them the tools and knowledge to place them on the trajectory to a normal life again. When he’s not at the clinic, Ben’s life involves hiking, researching about random things (right now it’s on car care), practicing mixed martial arts, taking photos of his cat, and spending time with his loved ones. He is fluent in English and Cantonese, and is currently being tutored in Mandarin.
