(IFC/Tens/Ultrasound Therapy)

Physiotherapy is a regulated health profession that provides treatment to people suffering from musculoskeletal, neurological and cardiorespiratory conditions. Physiotherapists are experts in the diagnosis and management of conditions within their area of practice. They help alleviate physical pain, improve function and enhance performance for their patients. The physiotherapy process always starts with a comprehensive assessment and diagnosis. This is followed by the creation of a treatment plan aimed at restoring function and resolving symptoms. Once the condition has been alleviated, patients are educated on strategies to prevent recurrence and improve overall health.



Process of Treatment

This is often referred to as “hands on” treatment where the Physiotherapist will use their hands to work on your joints and/or muscles.

Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most commonly used systems of healing in the world. It stimulates the body to produce its own pain relieving substances called “endorphins.” It is a very effective tool for relieving muscle tension and trigger-points and also stimulates various systems in the body including the sympathetic nervous system which helps to decrease inflammation and promote healing.

Modalities (machines) are often used to decrease inflammation and pain, improve circulation and improve strength. These may include ultrasound, laser, interferential current, ice, heat, paraffin wax, etc.

This may be appropriate for the specific sport(s) you need to return to or for postural correction.
