PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy is a drug-free health care practice.  Physiotherapists work in partnership with individuals of all ages to break down the barriers to physical function whether that means working with patients pre and post surgery, helping people come back from illness and chronic disease, injury, industrial and motor vehicle accidents and age related conditions.  Physiotherapists  also play an important role in health promotion and disease prevention. We now offer pelvic floor rehabilitation for women with pelvic floor weakness, incontinence, and low grade prolapse.

ATHLETIC THERAPY

Athletic Therapy is a profession that provides a variety of services that assist active people who have sustained or could sustain an injury.  These services fall into three main areas:

Prevention: Athletic therapists employ many strategies to help active individuals avoid or minimize the possibility of injury

Immediate care: Many musculoskeletal orthopedic injuries require immediate expert care, including injury assessment, first aid and transition into the health care system.

Rehabilitation: Post-injury, athletic therapy focuses on preparing active individuals to re-establish their pre-injury lifestyle through physical reconditioning, hands-on therapy and other rehabilitative techniques.

ORTHOTICS

What is a Custom Orthotic?

A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance which will help reduce stress and strain on your body. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during walking. 

Who Needs Them?

The symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include any one of the following:

  • Localized foot pain
  • Bunions, hammer toes
  • Arch/heel pain
  • Leg/knee pain
  • Hip or back pain - even neck pain

BRACING

Why Brace?

Braces and splints can be useful for acute injuries, chronic conditions, and the prevention of injury. There is good evidence to support the use of some braces and splints. They have a relatively low cost, and no adverse effects.

Types of Braces

There are four main kinds of braces:

  • Prophylactic (say: “pro-fa-lack-tick”) braces. These are designed to protect knees from injuries during contact sports like football.
  • Functional braces. These give support to knees that have already been injured.
  • Rehabilitative braces. These limit harmful knee movement while a knee is healing after an injury or surgery.
  • Unloader/offloader braces. These are designed to provide relief to people who have arthritis in their knees.

Bracing Can be used for the following conditions

  • ACL Reconstruction
  • Tennis/Golfers Elbow
  • Knee Osteoarthtris
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Chronic Ankle Sprains

Compression Stockings

Heavy and tired legs and swollen ankles are signs of chronic venous insufficiency, which is a serious disease with real consequences. Around 15 percent of the population currently suffers from venous diseases. If you find that your shoes are getting tight during the day, this could be a visible sign for a venous weakness. Wearing compression stocking is key with the treatment of venous disorders. This treatment is prescribed by a physician to treat phlebitis, thrombosis and aftercare following surgery, sclerotherapy and any other forms of varicose vein treatment, and also to relieve all conditions of chronic venous disease (heavy legs, varicose veins, edemas, leg ulcers). It can also be prescribed to prevent venous issues during pregnancy and long distance travel. If no contraindications like severe arterial insufficiency are present, compression stockings of lower pressure can be purchased without prescription.
