To better prepare you for your first visit we suggest the following:
- Arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment to allow time to complete any necessary forms.
- Bring or wear comfortable clothes, which allow your therapist to assess the area of concern. We do have hospital gowns available.
- Bring your insurance information for billing purposes.
- If you have a referral bring it along. Insurance varies and some require a referral for us to direct bill, or for you to submit for repayment. We suggest you confirm with your insurance company before attending.
Our patients’ success is why we do what we do. Here are some of their stories in their own words:
“I’ve been a patient of Back on Track since 2008, after a motor vehicle accident. Donna’s approach was different than any I had experienced before; as unfortunately this was not my first accident. She focused on teaching me to help myself, rather than a five-minute consult followed by a Tens machine treatment, like my experiences before. We discussed how other factors in my life can affect how I heal and when I was faced with another injury last year, I did not hesitate to go back to Donna and her team. I feel so fortunate for the first referral to her as I have no doubt I am much better off because of that today.” – D. Goodyear
“My first visit to Donna and her team at Back on Track was in 2008 for a painfully limited shoulder. I was so impressed with the assessment, treatment and the results, I returned in 2010 when I injured my lower back, and also in 2012 to settle a flare of the same back issue. So when I was having issues with my hand and arm following excessive computer use, I visited my family doctor to get, you guessed it, a referral to Back on Track.” – J. Hobbs
“I am very thankful to have been under the care of Donna and her team at Back on Track following a car accident in 2012. The excellent care I received gave me the confidence to move forward, and the attention to details which were specific to a motor vehicle accident were greatly appreciated. The clinic’s communication with my family doctor and my insurance adjuster helped me to focus on recovery, and for this I am eternally grateful.” – E. Snow
“I was referred to Back on Track in 2010 by my chiropractor as I had been suffering from arm pain for four months. I especially appreciated the private, individual treatment rooms, and the face time I received from my physiotherapist, as at Back on Track they work exclusively one-on-one with their clients. Donna and the team at Back on Track were vital in my care, and the entire process of a workplace injury, from communicating with my caseworkers and completing the necessary paperwork.” – D. Whelan
