How often should I come?2022-11-23T02:19:14+00:00

From a client-centred perspective, the pace is directed by the client, their presenting concerns/needs and is in consultation with their practitioner. This is a common question that can be answered at your first session.

What do I bring to session?2022-11-23T02:19:04+00:00

We always want you to take care of your needs and feel comfortable. If that looks like coming in comfortable casual clothes, bringing a snack, water bottle and/or a journal to take notes, we love seeing our clients do what works for them and attending to their personal needs.

I know one of the therapists personally- can I choose them as my therapist?2022-11-23T02:18:54+00:00

We really appreciate the desire that folks are interested in working with us, even when they know us personally, but we try to eliminate any chance for bias or multiple relationships. We would happily suggest a colleague that could help you.

Can I bring my partner to session?2022-11-23T02:18:43+00:00

This is definitely a possibility, and something you can discuss with your practitioner. Usually at the first session, clients come individually to create their treatment goals.

For more information, please consult with your insurance company. We direct bill; however, dependent on the practitioner and insurance’s policy. Please talk to your insurance company for clarification and follow up with our admin team to determine if you may need to pay and submit.

Do I participate as a parent?2022-11-23T02:17:06+00:00

Parental involvement is a wonderful asset and support but is dependent on the age of the child. Every practitioner addresses this differently but values parents & child’s different needs. Please have a conversation with your practitioner.

If parent does participate, what does it look like?2022-11-23T02:16:56+00:00

It all varies and is age dependent. If working with preschool, parents are involved. As child grows older, varying needs around child’s autonomy & privacy can play a key part in therapeutic progress.

How often do I get updates about my child’s progress?2022-11-23T02:16:43+00:00

This is a question that can be addressed at consent and at the first session.

My child isn’t ready to participate in therapy yet, are there supports I/we can access in the meantime to support them?2022-11-23T02:16:33+00:00

Absolutely! We can offer developmentally appropriate parent coaching and strategies relevant to the family structure and values you hold.

What is the role of my child’s step-parent?2022-11-23T02:04:49+00:00

A step-parent is a part of the child’s village, but does not have legal rights to information. If both legal guardian’s consent to step parents involvement and release of information, the practitioner is able to accommodate.

Do you do court evaluations for parental capacity or custody?2022-11-23T02:04:38+00:00

We do not.

What can we treat?2022-11-23T02:04:26+00:00

Pelvic floor physiotherapists are trained to treat the muscles of the pelvic floor, and do this by working on mobility of the tissues, strengthening of the muscles, helping with pain reduction, teaching of gentle stretches, breathing techniques, etc. Some of the conditions/symptoms that can be treated with pelvic floor physiotherapy include: Stress and urge urinary incontinence (urine leakage with laughing, coughing, sneezing, exercise, as well as leakage associated with an urge to urinate), urinary urgency and frequency, pelvic pain, diastasis recti, prenatal & birth preparation, vaginal and cesarean postpartum recovery, pelvic organ prolapse, constipation, low back & hip pain, painful intercourse (dyspareunia), post-surgery (I.e. hysterectomy, excision surgeries, hernia surgeries, etc)

Who would benefit from pelvic floor physiotherapy?2022-11-23T02:04:15+00:00

In short, everyone can benefit from pelvic floor physiotherapy. Many people assume this service is strictly for women pre and post birth, but this could not be further from the truth. Not only do we treat persons of all anatomies, we also treat all ages. The treatment approach can be utilized for more specialized groups such as pediatrics, men’s health, pre and post natal, pre and post menopause, and more.

Can my child receive pelvic floor physiotherapy?2022-11-23T02:02:44+00:00

Yes! We have pelvic floor physiotherapists who specialize in treating pediatrics. The sessions are often similar to adults in that we gain a detailed history of your child’s concerns, perform an external assessment including things such as looking at their movement, core function, breathing patterns, etc. Typically pelvic floor contractions are not assessed in an initial appointment, as we like to ensure the child is comfortable. If we decide to check for contraction, it is typically done overtop of clothes beside their sits bones (with a parent present and consent gained). Conditions that can be treated include but are not limited to pelvic pain, bedwetting, incontinence issues, surgeries, etc.

What can I expect from a pelvic floor assessment?2022-11-23T02:02:52+00:00

Every pelvic floor assessment always starts with a detailed verbal history of your presenting concern. We will review your applicable past medical history, and ask appropriate questions pertaining to things such as your pain, bladder & bowel function, sexual function, or stress management to name a few. This is followed by an external or an objective assessment. We use this to look at you as a whole person and determine what could be contributing to your concern. This typically involves assessing things such as posture and alignment, movement patterns, breathing, and tissue mobility & strength. Depending on your concern, sometimes an internal examination is indicated to further assess these tissues to determine their role. We only ever perform these examinations if necessary, and after gaining proper consent from the patient. Once we have gathered all the information, the course of treatment is determined and you will be educated on your findings and sent home with a personalized treatment plan that may include things such as breathing techniques, stretches and/or exercises and more.

What is an internal exam? Do I need one?2022-11-23T02:02:59+00:00

An internal exam allows us to assess the muscles of the pelvic floor that attach from the front, back and sides of the pelvic bones and sacrum. These muscles surround structures such as the urethra, anus, as well as the vagina and/or penis.

  • By performing an internal exam, we can learn more information about things such as the strength & tone of the muscles, identify organ prolapse or scar tissue present, ensure reflexes in this area are functioning properly, and help identify your ability to relax and contract these muscles when cued. These exams can be completed vaginally and/or rectally.
  • We are always respectful of the sensitive nature of these exams, and ensure to educate you that this is not a requirement for treatment, but is suggested only when it is felt that the information would prove beneficial for your individual concerns. Only after having an informed conversation with the patient, and receiving consent do we continue with an internal exam. The treatment goals often change with patients session to session, and this is always re-evaluated meaning that not every appointment requires an internal exam. Consent will always be gained at every appointment, and the patient always maintains the right to withdraw this consent at any time.
Can I just do kegels?2022-11-23T02:02:36+00:00

While kegels can be a great way to improve muscle control and strength, they are not always indicated. There are actually a multitude of patients whose issues stem from a pelvic floor that is too overactive or tight, and in these situations kegels can either not work, or worsen the symptoms. This is typically why we recommend getting an assessment to learn more about what is causing your individual concerns, so we can help create a treatment plan tailored to you specifically.

Do I need to bring anything?2022-11-23T02:03:07+00:00

It is always recommended to wear comfortable clothing that you are able to move freely in. If an internal exam is indicated, we provide the necessary equipment and materials to perform those exams. You do not need to bring a doctor’s referral to receive an assessment and/or treatment, but some health benefit plans require this for direct billing so be sure to check with yours!

What is a chiropractor? What does a chiropractor do?2022-11-22T03:48:59+00:00

Chiropractors are highly trained healthcare professionals that use adjustments and soft tissue techniques in order to restore normal joint motion. Their goal is to help you achieve your goals by helping to decrease your pain while improving performance and your overall activities of daily living.

What is an adjustment?2022-11-22T03:49:42+00:00

An adjustment, or joint manipulation, is used on an area of the spine that is not moving as well as it should. It is quick and often pain-free and allows the joint and the tissues surrounding the joint to move and function properly. With adjustments and soft tissue techniques, combined with education and rehabilitation exercises, your chiropractor will help you decrease your pain, improve mobility, and help you get back to the things that you love.

What can a chiropractor help with?2022-11-22T03:51:33+00:00

Can a chiropractor treat babies or children?2022-11-23T02:00:18+00:00

Yes! Adjusting babies and children is very different then adjusting adults. Most adjustments are performed with a delicate fingertip pressure, some babies even sleep through it. This allows for a gentle, safe, yet effective treatment for our most important patients. Our chiropractor at Pine has spent years further educating and specializing her skills to treat babies and children and often has other chiropractors referring to her due to her experience and skill with this population.

How does acupuncture work?2022-11-22T04:00:16+00:00

Thin, single-use needles are inserted into carefully selected points on the body. The stimulation of these points has been shown to change the way the brain perceives pain by releasing chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. Acupuncture has also been proven to reduce inflammation, increase circulation to reproductive organs, and balance hormones.

What can it treat?2022-11-22T04:01:18+00:00

Acupuncture’s benefits are wide-reaching. The main goal of acupuncture is to restore the body’s homeostasis which is why people find it helpful for so many conditions. Some of the most common treatment concerns include: Infertility or struggles while trying to conceive, Digestive issues such as diarrhea, constipation, bloating, lack of appetite, and heartburn, Autoimmune diseases , Musculoskeletal Pain, Anxiety and depression, Insomnia, PTSD, Menstrual cycle concerns such as heavy periods, painful periods, light periods, spotting between periods, and lack of a period, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, and Endometriosis

Is it painful?2022-11-22T04:02:02+00:00

Acupuncture should not be painful. You will feel a slight prick upon needle insertion but nothing should feel continuously sharp, painful, or like it’s taking your breath away. Normal sensations are often described as a dull ache or heaviness around the area of the needle. Your acupuncturist will check in with you multiple times during treatment to make sure you are at ease and comfortable.

How do I prepare for a session?2022-11-22T04:02:46+00:00

Fill out the intake form that is sent to you when you book. This allows the clinician to better understand you and your concerns; Wear comfortable clothing. This allows easier access to acupuncture points. Your clinician might ask you to remove some clothing as well; Eat a small meal 1-3 hours before your session; and Avoid or limit caffeine intake before your session so you are able to fully relax

Can I get acupuncture treatments while pregnant?2022-11-23T00:13:54+00:00

Yes! Always let your acupuncturist know if you are or could be pregnant. This changes your treatment plan as there are some areas of the body that are contraindicated to needling during pregnancy.

What is pediatric physiotherapy?2022-11-22T04:10:33+00:00
  • Pediatric physiotherapy is therapy for babies and school-aged children. We provide one-onone care with the child and their family. A key component of pediatric physiotherapy is using fun, play based strategies to support motor development.
  • The child’s family is an integral part of pediatric physiotherapy. After the assessment is complete, an individualized care plan is created with the family. Family involvement continues throughout the treatment sessions, as well as at home to help the baby/child continue to practice the new skills.

At Pine we value family centered care. We look forward to working with you and your child, and welcome the support of additional family members.

My child is less than 2 years old but is not talking yet. Is it too early to access services?2022-11-23T00:16:56+00:00

Absolutely not! Early intervention is best and being proactive ensures strategies are in place to support your child’s speech and language development

What can I expect from our sessions?2022-11-23T00:28:54+00:00

The initial session starts with an assessment or consultation where I gather information, we discuss your concerns and then work together to create treatment goals and determine any other appropriate next steps. Treatment sessions use a play-based approach to target the functional goals that were created in the initial session.

Do I need to bring anything with me to the first session?2022-11-23T00:32:31+00:00

Please bring any recent speech and language reports or any other reports you think could be pertinent.

What is Manual Osteopathic Therapy (MOT)2022-11-23T00:34:45+00:00

MOT is a wholistic, gentle, hands-on approach to encourage mobility and flow of your body’s tissues which in turn encourages your body’s own self-healing mechanisms. In doing so, pain and dysfunction often decrease and overall health often increases. MOT includes different modalities such as craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, myofascial remodelling, lymphatic drainage, and osteoarticulations.

Do I need a referral from another professional?2022-11-23T00:35:21+00:00

You do not. Clients can self-refer to an MOT

What does an appointment look like?2022-11-23T00:36:19+00:00

All appointments include assessment and treatment. Initial appointments include more assessment time.

  • Adult appointments: expect to spend the majority of the appointment on the treatment table, but some sitting and standing will also be involved.
  • Paediatric appointments: Care will be taken to meet your child where they’re at. Sometimes this means hands-on time mixed with hands-off time, playing with toys, laughing, or calm resting.
  • Infant appointments: As the parent, you will be encouraged to meet your baby’s needs, including feeding, changing, and comforting. The assessment and treatment can be done in whatever way keeps baby most content. Sometimes this will be in the therapist’s arms, on the table, or in your arms.
What can I expect after a treatment?2022-11-23T00:36:59+00:00

You can expect to feel shifts and changes for the following 3 days-3 weeks as your body adjusts to its new normal. Clients often feel effects on their nervous system like feeling more relaxed and less anxious. Sometimes issues resolve immediately during the treatment. Other times in that 3 day-3 week window. Some clients feel tired and need to rest the evening of the appointment. Other clients feel a rejuvenation of energy.

How often might I need an appointment?2022-11-23T00:37:46+00:00

All patients are different and require different treatment schedules. Some clients come every 1-2 months for a “tune-up”. Others come as needed following injuries. Other times, chronic pain might take multiple appointments to resolve. During your assessment appointment, your therapist can outline a treatment plan with you.

Who can benefit from MOT?2022-11-23T00:38:28+00:00

Newborns to seniors and everyone in between can benefit from MOT. Because it is a wholistic therapy, it can treat the root causes of issues such as digestive imbalances, chronic pain, headaches, pregnancy aches and pains, breastfeeding difficulties, and anxiety.

Is it true that food before one, is just for fun?2022-11-23T00:39:10+00:00

While this is a cute saying, it can be dangerous for an infant’s nutritional status. Iron becomes a very important nutrient around 6 months of life. An infant’s iron-stores are depleted by then and need an external source; iron can come from iron-fortified cereals, animal proteins (beef, chicken etc.) and/or plant-based proteins (soy, beans, lentils etc.). Over the course of a lifetime, the highest need for iron happens between month 6 and month 12 of life. So while feeding our children should be fun and without pressure, there is a reason to emphasize iron-rich foods and ensuring your child has good exposure to flavours and textures in the first year of life.

When is it okay to start cow’s milk and how much?2022-11-23T00:39:57+00:00

For term babies, it is okay to start cow’s milk anytime between 9-12 months of life, given your baby is eating a variety of iron-rich foods. For pre-term infants, it might be best to wait until 12 months of life before starting cow’s milk. The calcium in cow’s milk share the same ‘absorption ports’ as iron and can easily ‘outcompete’ iron in baby’s guts. Babies are also far more likely to drink more milk than eat their iron-rich foods, so it’s best to wait to offer fluid milk until your child is eating a good variety of those iron-rich foods (see FAQ 1 for examples).

How can I support my picky eater without always giving them the same food?2022-11-23T00:41:01+00:00

The BEST way to support your picky eater is to NOT always give them same food. You can offer a safe food (something they know) at every meal, alongside foods they don’t know. For example, that could be lasagna (unsafe food) and cucumbers (safe food) or maybe it’s a beef & bean chili (unsafe food) with whole grain buns (safe food). And yes, if they ask for MORE of the safe food, without touching the new food, they should be given more. This teaches them to trust their body AND that food is safe and not to be feared.

Our food bills are really high, can you help us come up with some nutritious budget friendly options?2022-11-23T00:41:44+00:00

Always!! Our food environment is constantly changing with the world around us. If anyone watches the cost of food prices creep up, it’s Dietitians – we work with food every day, both in our work life and our home life. Consuming a healthful diet doesn’t have to break the bank and there are many ways to cut down on groceries: food recycling apps, in-store specials, plant-based proteins, menu planning and more!

My kid’s each have their own food preferences and I spend a ton of time and energy trying to plan meals that everyone will eat, is there any way to make this process easier?2022-11-23T00:42:25+00:00

YES! My #1 rule for families, is ‘one family, one meal’. For a family with multiple preferences, this can feel daunting, but if we approach the table where everyone is offered the same foods, it makes WAY more sense. For those that are selective, they gain exposure (whether they eat new foods or not). For those who are hungry, there is always at least ONE option they can eat off the table. For the person who is preparing all this food, it will feel a weight has been taken off your shoulders. There are multiple ways to approach the challenge of deciding what to offer; like offering deconstructed meals, or seeking input from family members as what they might like on the menu, or giving choice in the ‘side’ that is served: “Are we roasted broccoli or raw cucumber?”

Do you talk about the Canadian Food Guide in sessions with clients?2022-11-23T00:43:09+00:00

Nope! The Canadian Food Guide is a great resource for education and guiding policy and program development in the area of nutrition & food. But for my individual clients, we discuss what makes sense for them on a personal, holistic level.

I find at the end of the day I turn to food. What should I do?2022-11-23T00:43:56+00:00

Gosh, me too sometimes! Whether it’s habitual, inadequate eating throughout the day, or emotional, eating at night is a very common concern. Often this requires some tweaks in an individual’s feeding routine, some awareness activities for when they are at home, and possibly the support of a mental health professional (depending on the challenges someone is facing).

Why kids are always hungry before dinner? I’ll give them a small snack before dinner or if I withhold a snack, they tantrum and won’t eat the dinner I made anyways?2022-11-23T00:45:17+00:00

Afterschool snack timing can be super tricky, depending on what time you get home, have snack (maybe?) and sit down for supper. Aim to offer protein with the afterschool (or afternoon) snack to keep them full, most snacks are carbohydrate based, and get burned up in a matter of minutes. Add some protein (or some fat) and that snack can hold off hunger for a bit longer. If you have a hovering child, and they seem genuinely hungry, offer them some fresh cut veggies for while they wait for supper, this gives them the option to eat something, and chances are, they won’t overfill their tank, and will welcome supper. As soon as their ‘stress’ response kicks in (increased behaviours, crying & carrying on or tantrumming etc.) their appetite will likely go away and actually getting them to engage in supper will be futile.

What is a lactation consultant?2022-11-23T01:44:23+00:00

At Pine, we are IBCLC’s – International Board-Certified Lactation Consultants. That means that we have extensive training in infant feeding and are required to complete continuing education. We are the most highly trained support in lactation and body latching, and we support body, bottle and baby. We are a cooperative care provider and are able to send notes and care plans to your other supports like your doctor or midwife

Do you do prenatal appointments?2022-11-23T01:45:02+00:00

Yes, absolutely! There are important preparations we can do prenatally. We do private and group prenatal classes. Each option has its own advantages. In a private session, you can deep dive into your questions and explore the feeding option(s) your family wants to include. In a group, you get a great overview of body latching techniques and common concerns, plus you can hear questions other classmates may have.

My baby’s latch is painful. I was told to get more breast in their mouth but it’s not working!2022-11-23T01:47:02+00:00

Yes, that’s very broad advice that may not apply to you in the same way. A lactation consultant looks at you and your baby as unique individuals and as a unique pair. We can give you individualized support for you and your baby specifically, rather than just some generalized statement.

Do you do more than breastfeeding?2022-11-23T01:55:13+00:00

Yes! A lactation consultant is trained on infant feeding of all kinds. Whether your family has a feeding plan or not, a lactation consultant can assess your infant’s feeding skills. This might include body latching, bottle feeding or other feeding tools like spoons!

I don’t have a newborn, but I still have breastfeeding questions. Can you still help?2022-11-23T01:55:54+00:00

Yes. Lots of people visit a lactation consultant beyond the newborn stage. Sometimes, things were working well but recently, there have been some changes in feeding or weight gain that are concerning to you. Maybe you’re starting solids, or returning to work. And maybe your breastfeeding time is coming to an end and you want support with that.

I have low milk supply. Can you help me?2022-11-23T01:56:29+00:00

Certainly. There are many causes to a low milk supply – including low supply as a biological norm. We can help ensure that the fundamentals of milk stimulation and extraction are being achieved, discuss options for feeding that feel right to you. If you feel like you have tried it all, we can be detectives with you to find out what the source(s) of low supply are and if any actions can be done to change them.

I don’t want to breastfeed2022-11-23T01:57:23+00:00

Good. We don’t want you to breastfeed, either. Our goal is to support your feeding. A lactation consultant specializes in infant feeding, so while we have advanced skills in lactation and body latching, that is not all we do. We can help with plans to comfortably stop lactation after birth and build bottle feeding skills, as well as help with formula selection and preparation.

I was told my baby has a tongue tie. What do I do?2022-11-23T01:57:59+00:00

Many people who identify a tongue tie, may be missing the skills to support your feeding. A lactation consultant will look at your feeding and your baby. We won’t pressure you into any set plan, but we can help you to find what you think is the right answer for you. If you are considering your next steps, a lactation consultant can discuss your options with you.
