Physiotherapy Assessment
 

An experienced physiotherapist will perform a thorough biomechanical and orthopaedic assessment of your condition based on symptoms and signs that relate to your problem.

 

Physiotherapy Treatment
 

Physical treatment emphasizing manual (hands-on) therapy and exercise with adjunctive modalities as necessary will be instituted. Treatment is done one-on-one with the same physiotherapist for the duration of the treatment plan. At times the assistance of a professional exercise specialist/ kinesiologist will be employed for the implementation of the exercise portion of the treatment. At all times the goal is to educate you about your condition and the corrective steps to manage the problem thus ensuring that you will be able to manage independently. Communication with referring medical professionals via progress and discharge summaries is done regularly.

 

Sport Specific Training
 

Skiing, squash, tennis, soccer, figure skating, basketball, curling, running etc., all require an optimal level of balance, flexibility, strength, power and skill. Our exercise specialist will design an individualized, sport-specific program that will help prevent injuries and improve your performance.

Custom Foot Orthotics

Ergonomic Workplace Assessment
 

A physiotherapist with training in ergonomics will visit your place of work to identify risk factors that have the potential to cause discomfort and injury while performing your job. We have done assessments for a variety of workplaces: offices, assembly lines, nursing units and libraries, as well as for heavy equipment operators. For example, during an office assessment we look at an employee’s posture and its relationship to the positioning of their desk, chair, monitor, keyboard and mouse; the amount of lifting and repetitive tasks; the type of lighting and equipment used etc. Based on these finding we produce a comprehensive report providing recommendations on how to reduce ergonomic risk factors. A follow-up appointment is scheduled for the physiotherapist and employee to make the agreed upon changes.

 

Biophysical Modalities
 

Our physiotherapists use therapeutic ultrasound, laser, interferential current, TENS, and electromuscular stimulation which are all used when needed to enhance our treatment and exercise programmes.

 

Medical Acupuncture & Dry Needling
 

We offer acupuncture as an adjunct to treatment where indicated. Physiotherapists who perform acupuncture at our clinic have formal training in medical acupuncture through organizations such as Acupuncture Canada (formerly the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute). Some of our physiotherapists also have certification in Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) or Dry Needling.
