Do You Suffer From Any of Following Neck and/or Lower Back Pain Symptoms?

  • Achy, dull pain
  • Muscle spasm
  • Local soreness upon touch
  • Loss of range of motion (forward flexion, extension, right and left bending/rotation)
  • Referred pain that moves down one leg/arm
  • Stiffness and/or difficulty moving
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Tingling or “pins and needles” sensation
  • Numbness or weakness

Combination of Modalities and Manual Therapy Used:

  • Portable Ultrasound: for treating inflammation and improving deep circulation and reducing swelling
  • TENS and Interferential: for releasing pain
  • EMS: for strengthening muscles
  • Manual Therapy: mobilization, soft tissue release, trigger point release, stretching, strengthening, stability and Neurodynamic rehabilitation

Physiotherapy After Stroke

What is the link between Physiotherapy and Stroke Recovery? –It is a known fact that after a person experiences a stroke, the sooner he or she receives therapy, the higher likelihood of a stronger recovery is possible. This is why the phrase “Time is critical” is used so often when it comes to post-stroke recovery.

Our brains cannot grow new cells, but with professional physiotherapy skills, it can be trained to recover whatever was lost or damaged. Physiotherapy can help build new pathways for signals to transfer from our brain to our body. The sooner the practice begins, the sooner the recovery time may be, and the better the overall outcome.

Common problematic joint conditions include:

  • Arthritis
  • meniscal injury
  • ligament injury
  • bursitis
  • fracture

Symptoms of these conditions may include inflammation, pain, stiffness and reduced range.

Post-surgical physiotherapy at home is a great benefit for patients whom underwent hip and/or knee surgery and or non-surgical fractures.

Main Goals:

  • Improve joint range of motion
  • Improve gait pattern
  • Improve balance
  • Optimize muscle power

Sarcopenia

As we age, our bodies naturally lose muscle mass, which can lead to frailty; this is known as Sarcopenia. Due to this gradual loss of muscle mass, the elderly are affected the most and are at the greatest risk for falls and fractures. Nearly 50% of the elderly population are at risk for falls due to instability issues and gait imbalances. In order to prevent falls in the elderly, we must maintain muscle strength and proper balance. Our physiotherapists can assist patients in maintaining and strengthening their muscles, and ultimately decreasing the deterioration of strength in the elderly. Physiotherapy at home can also benefit the patient by educating them on our falls risk safety and prevention program, by practicing proper balancing techniques and gait movements.

Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease

Common Symptoms of these include:

  • Tremors
  • Rigidity
  • Bradykinesia (slowness)
  • Impaired balance
  • Postural instability
  • Parkinson’s gait

Our physiotherapists are highly experienced when it comes to dealing with patients who suffer from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. They use exercises and movement strategies to improve the overall mobility of their patient and assisting them with correcting and improving abnormal movements or patterns that may have been caused by the disease.

Main goals:

  • Optimize muscle power
  • Improve joint range of motion
  • Improve gait pattern
  • Improve balance
  • Improve coordination
  • Posture correction

Benefits:

  • Reduces pain
  • Reduces risk for falls
  • Improves respiratory efficiency
  • Maintains independence
  • Increases self confidence

Physiotherapy for Children and Youth

Improving a child’s gross motor skills is one of the main targets physiotherapists aim to achieve through therapeutic methods. Physiotherapy can help improve and/or correct a child’s sitting, standing or walking abilities. Physiotherapists can also improve a child’s flexibility, strength and endurance; which are all part of their gross motor skills. Physiotherapy for children can help achieve overall development, rehabilitation and improvement of movement and balancing skills.

Gross motor delay may be due to:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Developmental Coordination Disorder
  • Down Syndrome
  • Spina Bifida
  • Acquired Brain Injury
  • Hypotonia
  • Muscular Dystrophy or other neuromuscular challenges
  • Torticollis/Plagiocephaly
  • Other genetic disorders

Cerebral Palsy

Physical therapy is an important of children whom are born with cerebral palsy. It is most beneficial for a child to begin therapy at a very young age to help improve motor skills. There are different therapeutic methods that can be used for children. The different methods and techniques used depends on each child’s specific movement issues or other related symptoms which are due to CP.

Physical therapy can improve:

  • Strength
  • Mobility
  • Posture
  • Balance
  • Flexibility
  • Gross motor delay and movement difficulties
