Programs & Services
Neurosciences and Musculoskeletal Services
Outpatient Physiotherapy services at Trillium Health Centre focus on post-surgical musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. These can include:
- Hip and knee replacement
- torn ligaments
What to Expect:
Our goal is to provide early access to assessment and evidence based (what is supported in professional literature and the most up-to-date information) treatment to assist you to return to your daily routine. Outpatient Physiotherapy services include:
- Goal setting and treatment planning
- One on one education
- Individual and group exercise programming
- Home exercise program
- Injury prevention education
Registered physiotherapists and physiotherapy assistants work together to customize your treatment program. They have advanced knowledge about working with individuals with musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, and may draw upon various approaches, including:
- Manual therapy
- Functional Movement Screening
- Mulligan Concept
Patients are engaged in setting their treatment goals and are expected to follow their assigned home program to get the most benefit from physio.
We work closely with the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) to ensure the flow of hip and knee replacement patients from home therapy to an outpatient treatment setting.
The Outpatient Physiotherapy Service accepts patients who are referred by Trillium Health Centre specialists like an orthopaedic surgeon. Sometimes if the waiting list is very small, patients residing in the Trillium Health Centre catchment area but referred by specialists from other hospitals will be accepted. All referrals are triaged for urgency. Those identified as a priority are seen within 1 week. Every effort is made to offer an appointment to others within a timely manner.
A physiotherapist assesses patients referred from Fracture Clinic and this occurs at West Toronto site. A brief assessment occurs and early exercises are prescribed. If you choose to have the physiotherapy at Trillium Health Centre, the therapist will bring the referral to the booking coordinator who will call you with an appointment.
Outpatient Physiotherapy is available at West Toronto of Trillium Health Centre. Please bring your Health Card with you to every appointment.
Wear comfortable clothes in which you can exercise. For your first visit bring a list of your current medications.

“The therapists were very dedicated and efficient to my progress and needs. They insisted on exercises being done well and properly, for which I’m extremely thankful. I greatly appreciated the help my therapists gave me. Without their encouragement and dedication I couldn’t have succeeded.”
“Your physio staff are friendly, kind and courteous. They are sincere in their efforts and very concerned about helping you to achieve your goals for an improved outcome.”
“I don't think that I could have achieved my results as quickly as I did without their support. Thank you!”
