We believe that treating each person as a whole, encompassing mind, soul and body, is crucial to achieve healing.
Rather than just focusing on the symptoms of injury or illness, our physiotherapy experts are trained to identify the root cause. Our physiotherapists draw on their understanding of how the muscular, skeletal and nervous systems work together. Most of the treatments focus on realigning the body to work to its full potential, considering current and past injuries. Proper function can facilitate your body’s innate ability to heal itself.
Pain and the problems it causes can wear you down over time and affect your mood. Chronic pain and physical malfunction can leave people emotionally volatile and lead to depression. Science is beginning to discover the strong connection between the physical condition and emotional state. We recognize the importance of addressing the whole body, including the brain and its chemical reactions by education along your rehabilitation process and understanding the importance of getting back to sport or normal living as quick as possible.
We strive to treat in a safe and effective manner, provide good communication and perspective towards health, performance, wellness and pain-free living.
What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapists integrate clinical expertise with evidence based research to evaluate the underlying causes of joint, muscle and nerve disorders. They identify muscular imbalances, inhibited or weak muscles, joint stiffness as well as neural and muscular tension points. They use a wide range of techniques to relieve pain, restore function, movement, strength and power. A special attention is dedicated to identify faulty biomechanics and patterns to correct them and prevent further injury. Treatment can include personalized therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises (both in-office and prescribed home care), soft tissue release, proprioceptive and balance training, and joint mobilization/manipulation. Treatment also focuses on providing the patient with essential postural, ergonomics and biomechanics education about the body including what keeps it from moving well, how to restore mobility and independence, and how to avoid or prevent bodily harm.
Physiotherapy can help to increase core/abdominal control, to strengthen specific muscle groups, to restore proper mobility and optimal posture as well as fast return to sport and activities. Specifically it helps to resolve acute injuries (sprains & strains), conditions post orthopaedic surgery or fractures, overuse/chronic/recurrent nagging injuries, pre and post natal musculoskeletal pain.
