Option 3: Clinical Pilates Program

If you are under the care of one of our Clinical Pilates Trained Physiotherapists you may be eligible to have your Pilates covered under your extended health care plan.

Clinical Pilates is a goal-directed rehabilitation program outlined and overseen by one of our Shelbourne  Physiotherapists and carried out by our clinical Pilates instructors working as Physiotherapy Assistants. These instructors have specific training and experience to work with injuries and rehabilitation, and are fully insured members of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association as Physiotherapy Assistants.

The cost for a 55 Minute session is $95, and is HST exempt. Receipts will be issued through Shelbourne Physiotherapy with the supervising Physiotherapist as the provider.

Steps to qualify:
1. You must be assessed by a Physiotherapist at Shelbourne Physiotherapy clinic

2. You must have a Dr’s note recommending “Physiotherapy Core Exercise Rehab” with a diagnosis (We can send a referral request to your Dr. if you have seen them recently)

3. If your extended health care plan does not cover treatment by a Physiotherapy Assistant, we recommend booking regular pilates private sessions.
