Northside Physiotherapy Clinic - pt Health
In response to COVID-19, pt Health is doing its part to help protect patients and our teams by modifying the delivery of services at our clinic. We remain open in select communities across Canada to treat patients requiring urgent care and to provide virtual care options.
For clinics that are providing in-person services, we have put in place active measures including enhanced hygiene practices, social distancing and pre-screening before anyone enters the clinic as per the Public Health Agency of Canada and continue to monitor federal and provincial colleges, to ensure our policies are aligned.
If you are feeling ill, have traveled outside of Canada in the past 14 days, or have come in contact with someone who is suspected to have COVID-19, please reach out to your local public health agency. If you need to reschedule an existing booking, please contact us by calling: 1 (888) 707-4410
We will keep you up to date with any related changes at pt Health that may affect you. If you have any questions regarding your appointment or your future treatment, please contact us at: 1 (888) 707-4410
In good health,
"Northside Physio treats you like a person rather than just another appointment slot. I feel cared for and know that my appointment time isn't being split between multiple other patients like other clinics do. I'd definitely recommend any of my friends and family to seek physio at Northside Physio."
"I was referred to Northside Physiotherapy Clinic after I was involved in a car accident, in which I was rear ended. After about 6 weeks of physio twice a day, I was back to full movement and little to no stiffness! It was also an extremely welcoming and non judgmental environment, 10/10 recommend this clinic!"
