PHYSIOTHERAPY TREATMENTS

Headaches and Migraines

Physiotherapy treatment techniques such as manipulation, massage, postural correction and rehabilitation exercises can help manage some common types of headaches. Physiotherapists can also provide useful advice on how to prevent headaches by modifying everyday habits.

Back Pain

Patients suffering from most types of low back pain are often referred for physical therapy for four weeks as an initial conservative (nonsurgical) treatment option before considering other more aggressive treatments, including back surgery. The goals of physical therapy are to decrease back pain, increase function, and teach the patient a maintenance program to prevent future back problems.

Knee-Pain

Did you hurt your knee or have surgery? Or is it achy and stiff because of arthritis? Either way, you might feel like the last thing you should do is get on your feet and move your joint around. But often physical therapy (PT) is what your doctor suggests to get your strength back and put you on the road to recovery.

 

Physiotherapy can ease your muscle and joint pain. 

Post-Accident Care & Rehabilitation

Physiotherapy after car accidents is an effective way to address injuries or discomforts and help you return to your best level of movement. We can make the healing process as fast and as comfortable as possible. Don’t let your injury hold you back any longer.

Foot and Ankle Pain

The foot and ankle help us to absorb the forces that result when our feet hit the ground (ground reaction forces). The foot and ankle also provide the brain with tons of sensory feedback about the environment around us. If you have ever experienced pain in this area you know getting around can be much more difficult.  Many types of injuries can occur in this region of the body, some injuries are more traumatic such as a sprain, while other injuries can gradually develop into debilitating pain for no apparent reason, like plantar fasciitis.  In all cases, it is important that you have your pain assessed by a physiotherapist

Arthritis Pain

Arthritis is a joint disorder, which features inflammation, pain and stiffness. There is also often a loss in movement with arthritis, as the joints are too inflamed to move. When only a single joint is involved it’s known as monoarthritis. If two or three joints are involved it’s referred to as oligoarthritis. To date, there are over 100 types of arthritis. Osteoarthritis occurs due to wear and tear of the cartilage and Rheumatoid Arthritis results from an overactive immune system. Arthritis is the most common chronic illness in the nation. 

Dizziness and Vertigo

Vertigo and dizziness can affect people of all ages and of both genders. Dizziness is a common complaint affecting more than 30% of people over the age of 65 and more than 50% of those over 85, with women being more commonly affected than men. Furthermore, 20% of people over the age of 60 experience dizziness that results in disability or affects their ability to complete their normal activities.

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia Syndrome is a disease characterized by chronic pain, stiffness, and tenderness of muscles, tendons, and joints, without detectable inflammation. Fibromyalgia does not cause body damage or deformity. Fatigue affects 90 percent of patients and sleep disorders are common. Fibromyalgia can be associated with other rheumatic conditions, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). 

Post-Surgical Rehab

You've had your surgery and your mind tells you it's time to return to your old routines. But your body says, "Not so fast." The truth is, before you can get back to business as usual, you'll likely need some rehab to regain your strength.

With the help of a physical therapist and other specialists, you'll learn the best and safest way to walk, bathe, get dressed, and take care of yourself. And you'll get exercises to make your muscles stronger and help you improve the way you move the part of your body where you had your surgery.

TMJ Dysfunction

Physiotherapy can be used to treat TMD by reducing pain and inflammation in the joint and improving the movement and function of your TMJ. As in other cases, physiotherapy holistically treats TMD: Looking at both the TMJ and the other surrounding body parts that are contributing to the problem.

Chronic Illness

Physiotherapy can be used to treat TMD by reducing pain and inflammation in the joint and improving the movement and function of your TMJ. As in other cases, physiotherapy holistically treats TMD: Looking at both the TMJ and the other surrounding body parts that are contributing to the problem.
