+ Do I need to be a runner to come to TRP?

Absolutely not! Our team is fully trained to treat ALL aches and pains – running related or not. We also specialize in women's pelvic health, vesibular, and concussion rehab.

+ What should I bring to my appointment?

We want to see you move! Shorts are always best for any problems involving low back, hips, knees or feet and ankles. Ladies – tank top or sports bra is preferable for upper body problems. For running injuries, it is helpful if you bring your current pair of shoes so that we can scope out wear patterns and determine if they’re a good fit for you. For gait analysis appointments, bring your usual running gear.

+ Do you accept insurance?

Yes! We provide you a receipt after your visit that can be submitted to extended health coverage plans for reimbursement. All of our practitioners are registered with the Ontario College of Physiotherapists.

+ Do I need a doctor's note to see you?

Nope! Just check with your insurance company to see if you need a doctor's referral for reimbursement. We are equipped to diagnose your problem and if we think you need to see your doctor, we'll let you know at your first appointment.

+ Is Gait Analysis covered by insurance?

You bet. All gait analyses are completed by one of our Registered Physiotherapists and can be submitted as Physiotherapy under an extended health coverage plan.

+ What should I expect at my appointment?

An initial assessment always begins with a quick chat about health history, what your primary concerns are, and what your goals are. The next steps are to assess your body’s range of motion, strength, and movement. From there, we utilize a variety of manual therapies to help relieve pain and restore proper movement. Finally, you’ll get a customized “homework” plan sent directly to your email inbox with instructional videos, and respective reps and sets to work on prior to your next visit. We always make our exercises as "running related" as possible.
