Treatment

Physiotherapy treatments are based on assessment findings and are individualized to meet specific needs.  Following the assessment, a treatment plan is formulated and patient goals are established.  Education is a key component of our approach to physiotherapy.  Clients are taught about the nature of their injuries and how to prevent recurrence through exercise and modifications in their work/home environment.

 Physiotherapy treatments include but are not limited to the following:

Acupuncture is a therapeutic method of treatment which consists of inserting fine needles into the body at specific points along energy pathways called meridians.

Loss of balance is common in certain medical conditions and in the elderly. This can contribute to falls and difficulty walking. Balance exercises, combined with lower extremity strengthening and flexibility exercises, have been shown to improve balance and prevent falls.

As individuals spend increasing amounts of time at their computer workstation, they need to be aware of how the design and arrangement of their equipment can impact on their comfort, health and productivity. Repetitive strain injuries are common among individuals who work long hours at computers

Electro-therapeutic modalities include TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), ultrasound, interferential current and laser therapy.

Manual therapy techniques such as joint mobilizations, soft tissue and myofascial release are used to help improve joint mobility and promote muscle relaxation and flexibility.

Unfortunately, many of our daily activities bring us into a forward head position. Reading, computer work, gardening, and working on crafts are examples of activities that encourage slouched, round shouldered postures.

Spinal traction is a treatment option for neck and back pain, nerve root compression and spinal stenosis.  It can be administered manually by the physiotherapist or by a mechanized traction unit.

Following injury, splinting and taping can be used to protect joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments during the healing process.

Injury specific exercise programs are designed to improve muscle strength, flexibility and endurance.

Vestibular rehabilitation is a customized exercise program designed to improve balance and decrease dizziness/vertigo in individuals who have inner ear (vestibular) disorders.

Work conditioning is an individualized goal-oriented program to assist injured clients with their return to work.
