Musculoskeletal physiotherapy helps to restore normal body function and prevent disability arising from disease, trauma, injury, repetitive strain, or age-related disorders. They use a number of different techniques, including exercise, hands-on treatment, technology, equipment and education to treat patients.
Our support personnel not only provide extra assistance during physiotherapy sessions but are also able to work independently with you to conduct a supervised exercise program that may involve stretching, strengthening, mobilization and cardiovascular training. They work in collaboration with your physiotherapist to design and implement an active program to meet your rehabilitation goals either in clinic, at home, or in a gym setting.
Registered Massage Therapy
Massage therapy involves hands-on mobilization of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques to enhance function, reduce muscle spasms and tension, increase circulation, promote healing, mobilize scar tissue and muscle adhesions, and decrease pain.
Custom Made Braces/Orthotics
We work closely with the experienced orthotists at Back2Feet to provide our patients with custom-made orthotics, braces, splints or assistive technology/robotics to provide postural support and maximize their movement potential. Orthotist consultations can occur on-site.
ADP Authorized Assessments
The Assistive Devices Program (ADP) through the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care provides funding support for assistive devices to Ontario residents who have long-term physical disabilities. Our register ADP authorizer will assess your specific needs and determine your eligibility for the appropriate seating and mobility devices to increase independence.
