Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy, or physical therapy (PT), is a health care specialty that treats a variety of conditions involving muscles, bones and joints. It can treat injuries resulting from work-related accidents, sports injuries, back problems or arthritis. It can also help patients recover from joint replacement surgery.

Physiotherapy helps restore function and movement when someone is affected by injury, illness, or disability.  It takes a holistic approach that involves the patient actively managing their condition.

When you suffer an injury or illness that makes it difficult for you to move around easily, seeking physiotherapy is a wise choice.  When our body isn’t functioning properly, even minor issues can lead to a more serious condition over time.  Treating the source of the injury sooner rather than later will help you recover faster and prevent a more serious issue from developing.

A body that performs at its peak is empowering, and we’d like to prove that to you.  Our physiotherapy care team doesn’t rely on pain masking medications; we work with our patients to build resiliency and provide a plan that lasts.  Whether you are training for a marathon or want to play with your children in comfort, we can help.

Should I See a Physiotherapist? 

Physiotherapists are trained to diagnose conditions that make it difficult for you to move around easily. They then develop individualized treatment plans with you based on your condition and goals for recovery.  Our Edmonton physiotherapists actively work with the patient to provide them with exercises and advice so they feel more empowered to do their daily activities without worry. 

A physiotherapist can help determine whether your pain is due to an overuse injury (repetitive strain injury), or acute trauma such as an ankle sprain caused by tripping over your shoelaces on the way to work. If you’re suffering from an acute or chronic injury, our physiotherapy treatments will help speed up the healing process so that you can resume activities you love doing with minimal discomfort as soon as possible.

 

If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, we’d like to see you in our clinic as soon as possible:

  • Chronic or intense pain in your back, neck, or extremities (legs, arms, hands, ankles) 
  • Radiating pain from your back into one or both of your legs
  • Radiating pain from your neck into one or both of your arms
  • Weakness, tingling, or numbness throughout your body
  • Redness or swelling of the skin over the area that’s in pain

 

When injuries go untreated, we compensate for that by using other areas of the body that aren’t intended to support the weight of the injured area. Overcompensating for extended periods can quickly lead to more damage. 

 

Physiotherapy care has several benefits, besides those that are pain-related, including: 

  • Improved mobility
  • Prevention of injuries
  • Treating disc injuries 
  • Contributing to flexibility
  • Body strengthening
  • Improved cardiovascular health
  • Improved mental health
  • Proactive body care

Common Physiotherapy Services We Provide

  • Concussion Therapy: Concussions are a serious matter. With the proper guidance and rehabilitation, we can help improve your cognitive function as well as re-establish the proper motor control necessary to perform your daily activities
  • Acupuncture and Dry Needling: with ultra-thin needles, we’ll penetrate the skin and treat injured muscles and soft tissues, decreasing pain and increasing mobility 
  • Vertigo/Vestibular Rehabilitation: we provide an exercise-based program to improve balance and reduce problems related to dizziness. 
  • Hip and Knee Osteoarthritis: creating controlled stability and mobility through the strengthening of the muscles helps to decrease the typical symptoms of osteoarthritis
  • Sports Rehabilitation: depending on the sport, different biomechanics of the body are responsible for required movement and athleticism. The road to recovery and back to play is a strategic one that requires the proper exercises to enhance your performance

 

In most cases, our physiotherapy techniques will resolve your pain points within a few weeks. However, no two patients are the same and we never treat you as such.
