About us

About Us

Back to Basics Physiotherapy Inc. is a family-run business that has been actively involved in keeping residents of Pictou County moving since 2001. We travel between our two locations in Pictou and New Glasgow, to better accommodate our clients and residents of Pictou County. Our team works hard to create a friendly, relaxing environment in which our clients can receive high-quality treatment.

Mission Statement

Back to Basics Physiotherapy functions under a strict mandate; re-empowering the client.  To do so we educate our clients on the underlying causes of their injury or pain and how to alleviate them. This approach allows our clients to regain control of their lives and make informed decisions regarding their treatment. We are committed to the physiotherapy profession and offer efficient, one on one, quality care.

To us, the individual comes first!

We are devoted to:

Teaching you why you have symptoms what the symptoms mean and what to do about them.

Returning you to your former active self as quickly as possible while addressing the root causes of your symptoms.

Providing you with a lifetime plan to maintain your active lifestyle and prevent future problems.


You do not need a referral to receive physiotherapy. However, several private insurance plans still require a physician’s written referral for coverage or re-reimbursement.

Some insurance companies also cover such items as custom made orthotics, braces, TENS units, cervical pillows, and back supports.

MSI does NOT cover the cost of private physiotherapy treatments.

Please check with your insurance company for coverage


Here at Back to Basics Physiotherapy we can direct bill most private insurances that cover physiotherapy treatments. For more information please contact us by phone or email, or feel free to stop in at either of our locations during our regular business hours.
