HOW CAN WE HELP?

Physiotherapy is the treatment of injury, disease and disorders through physical methods — such as exercise, massage, manipulation and other treatments — over medication and surgery.​ Treatments are used to restore, maintain, and make the most of a patient's mobility, function, and well-being. Physiotherapy helps through physical rehabilitation, injury prevention, and health and fitness. Physiotherapists get you involved in your own recovery.

Physiotherapists focus on both prevention and rehabilitation. Treatments for problems caused by injury, disease or disability such as:

  • Neck and back pain caused by problems in the muscles and skeleton

  • Problems in the bones, joints, muscles and ligaments, such as arthritis and the after-effects of amputation

  • Lung problems such as asthma

  • Disability as a result of heart problems

  • Pelvic issues, such as bladder and bowel problems related to childbirth

  • Loss of mobility because of trauma to the brain or spine, or due to diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis

  • Fatigue, pain, swelling, stiffness and loss of muscle strength, for example during cancer treatment, or palliative care 

Your session with us will be unique, because it is all about you and your particular needs. In general, here’s what happens:

  • The physiotherapist learns about your medical history

  • The physiotherapist assesses and diagnoses your condition

  • You receive a treatment plan that sets goals for you

  • You are prescribed a course of exercises and any assistive devices needed
