PHYSIOTHERAPY

Prevention, care and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries. Our focus is getting you back to your desired activities through hands-on therapy, and exercises to aid in strengthening and gaining flexibility and mobility.  We focus on treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries, repetitive strain injuries, workplace injuries (WSIB), motor vehicle accidents (MVA), general weakness and de-conditioning, falls prevention / balance etc. Our team of practitioners are dedicated to restoring and optimizing the function of your joints, muscles, and nervous system.

Orthopedics Manual Therapy

Orthopedics deals with the correcting injuries or disorders impacting the skeletal system and associated joints, muscles and ligaments. Patients in need of orthopedic treatments are likely suffering from sprains and strains, sports injuries, arthritis, osteoporosis, back pain, joint replacement, repetitive strains or other related injuries.

Manual therapy is an effective treatment used by physiotherapists to treat musculoskeletal pain and disability. It includes joint mobilization and joint manipulation and muscle and soft tissue mobilization techniques.

This hands-on approach is effective in diagnosing and treating soft tissues and joint structures. It modulates pain, increases the range of motion, reduces inflammation, and assists in repairing tissue and improving function.

Vestibular Rehabilitation

The vestibular system is comprised of the parts of the inner ear and brain that process the sensory information involved with controlling balance and eye movements. When these areas are damaged by injury of disease, vestibular disorders can result. Symptoms can include intense sensations of spinning, nausea, loss of balance, “brain fog”, a general sense of not feeling well and fatigue and gait issues. Common vestibular disorders include benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis, Meniere’s disease, perilymph fistula, and secondary endolymphatic hydrops, among others. Symptoms such as imbalance and chronic dizziness can severely impact a person’s quality of life. Vestibular disorders can affect both adults and children.

Pelvic Rehabilitation

Physiotherapy should be the first avenue to consider (prior to surgery or other medical interventions) for both pelvic pain and incontinence.

The pelvic floor muscles are a group of muscles that attach to the front, back and sides of the pelvic bone and sacrum, rather like a sling supporting the bladder, uterus, prostate and rectum. They wrap around the urethra, rectum and vagina.

Patients suffering pelvic health issues often have pelvic floor muscles that are either too weak or too tight. If they are weak, the condition contributes to stress and urge incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. If there are tight pelvic floor muscles it can contribute to urinary and fecal urgency, urge incontinence, chronic pelvic pain, interstitial cystitis and chronic prostatits among other conditions.

Prescribed treatment will also include a series of home exercises as well as therapy in the clinic.

Your treatment will consist of a combination of therapeutic modalities that will best fit your needs.  These include

  • Joint manipulation/mobilization (manual, drop piece, Activator)

  • Soft tissue manipulation (ART, FR, Graston/instrument assisted soft tissue therapy, myofascial release)
