  • If it’s a new injury or pain experience that you are having and it’s your first time seeing a health care professional about this new injury/issue then we would advise you to be seen initially by either our chiropractor or physiotherapist to have a thorough assessment of your injury before deciding on the most appropriate treatment plan going forward.
  • We are more than happy to accommodate any preferences you may have to see a specific clinician, subject to their availability.
  • The Function101 team is comprised of skilled therapists who all treat similarly.

  • Your chiropractor or physiotherapist will be more than happy to discuss these treatment options with you and together we can decide what is most suitable for you.
  • One-on-one client centred care; our therapists take their time to listen to your story, fully assess your injury, explain the findings, and work individually with each and every client to determine the best plan of care
  • 1800 square foot boutique style clinic with 5 private treatment rooms and an open concept gym space which allows each client to feel comfortable working one-on-one with their therapist

  • Please arrive at the time of your appointment when you visit Function101. You will be greeted by someone from our patient experience team and asked to fill out an intake form.
  • Alternatively, you can make an account on Jane and fill out your intake, which is our online booking app.
  • Wearing loose-fitting clothing such as track pants, yoga pants, shorts, tank tops and/or t-shirt is preferable to ensure any areas to be examined are accessible to your therapist.
  • Bring any relevant imaging (x-rays, MRI, ultrasound, etc.) or notes from your doctor.
  • No, you do not need a doctor’s note to be assessed and treated by a chiropractor, physiotherapist or massage therapist. We are primary health care providers and as such you do not require a referral to receive treatment – you can book an appointment anytime! However, some extended health benefit plans may require a doctor’s referral for the reimbursement of our services. If you are unsure, we suggest that you clarify with your insurance provider.

Payment is due following each treatment and your balance may be paid by direct billing, e-transfer, or Visa/Mastercard. We offer direct billing on your behalf with several major insurance companies. If you wish to use our direct billing services, please bring your extended health benefits card. If your provider covers a certain percentage of your treatment, you will be required to pay the remaining balance. Feel free to contact us for details.
