Physiotherapy

manual therapyPhysiotherapy is the specialty in healthcare that focuses on the prevention and treatment of injury through physical means. Physiotherapists are university trained professionals that can assess for physical dysfunctions resulting from injury, or disease and design and implement treatment programs to help restore normal mobility, strength and functional ability. (For more information about physiotherapy please visit the Canadian Physiotherapy Association website and the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy website)

 

Our therapists treat a wide scope of injuries from sports, car accidents, work or repetitive strain including neck and back strains/sprains, disc problems, rotator cuff/shoulder tendonitis, knee ankle and foot pain and dysfunction. We also treat arthritic conditions as well as post -operative rehab.

The first step is an initial assessment during which our therapist will perform an in-depth interview and detailed hands-on physical assessment to identify problematic areas. The therapist will then develop a treatment plan to address the problems and review the treatment options with you.  Your treatment may include:

Manual Therapy: 1 on 1 hands-on joint and soft tissue mobilisation/manipulation to improve joint and tissue mobility

Therapeutic exercise: individualised, problem-specific exercise programs, sport specific rehab, core strengthening

Laser & Ultrasound : for safe and optimal tissue healing

Shockwave Therapy: for the treatment of persistent heel pain, plantar fasciitis, chronic/calcific tendonitis, tennis elbow and other chronic soft tissue problems

Interferential Current: for pain control

Electrical Muscle Stim.: to improve muscle strength and function

Acupuncture:   for drug-free pain control

Spinal Traction:  for disc bulge/herniation, sciatica, spinal decompression, degenerative disc disease

Biofeedback, EMG: for muscular re-education and correct muscular imbalances, to improve posture

Therapeutic Taping, Custom Knee Bracing and other braces

Our Physiotherapists are registered, autonomous practitioners but you may still need a referral from your doctor if your insurance plan requires it. You can call your insurance provider and inquire if a referral is required.
