“My pain gets in the way of enjoying my life.”
If this rings true for you, you’re not alone. One in 5 Canadians live with chronic pain.1
Fortunately, your Manulife group benefits plan provides professional help for your pain without conflicting with your busy schedule. Meet Phzio.*
Phzio is a virtual physiotherapy service that allows members to get physio treatments from the comfort of their own homes. After the initial assessment, a registered physiotherapist creates a customized treatment plan for the member and supervises them in real-time while the exercises are performed. All appointments are online to promote safe healing at home.
Phzio is included for members with physiotherapy coverage as part of their extended health care plan with Manulife.

Virtual physiotherapy is like in-person therapy, and sessions are meant to be 1:1 with your virtual physiotherapist.
Some exercises use body weight. Other exercises may require items such as a yoga ball, foam roller, massage ball, resistance band or yoga strap. You’ll be informed about the equipment(s) you may need after your assessment.
No. Your personal information is confidential. Your employer will not have access to information that is shared between you and your physiotherapist.
