Frequently Asked Questions

Are your services covered under OHIP?
No.  In previous years, OHIP (Ontario Health Insurance Plan) covered a portion of chiropractic care, but this ended in 2004.

Will I be able to use my extended health care (EHC) benefits from work?
Yes! After receiving treatment, we will provide you with an invoice of the services rendered that you can claim to your insurance company for reimbursement, if applicable. 

Are the staff at Strength-N-U Therapy registered/certified?
Yes! All staff at Strength-N-U Therapy are registered health practitioners. 

How often should I receive treatment?
Everyone is different, so it depends on what issues you are having, the severity of the issue, and the progression of your recovery. 

Is treatment painful?
At times, certain techniques used by Chiropractors and/or Massage Therapists can be a little uncomfortable.  Simply let your treatment provider know if you are uncomfortable with a technique, and they will find an alternative way to treat you. 

Do I have to remove my clothing?
No.  Some areas of the body are easier to treat with no clothing, however, if you are not comfortable undressing for any reason, you certainly do not have to remove any clothing. 

Will I be sore after the treatment?
It is not uncommon to feel some soreness after treatment.  Chiropractic care and Massage Therapy involve the manipulation of the muscle and bone, and for some this can cause some soreness.  Your treatment provider will suggest some ways to reduce this pain such as stretch, ice and/or heat application.

Do I have to pay upfront?
Yes.  At Strength-N-U Therapy, we require our patients to pay up-front after the service is rendered.  We then will provide you with an invoice for you to submit to your insurance company.  However, if your insurance company allows “Assignment of Benefits” then other payment arrangements can be made.
