Rehabilitation physiotherapy uses a multi-disciplinary approach designed to speed up recovery and provide positive outcomes.
Half of Canadians live with at least one chronic health problem. 90 percent have at least one risk factor for heart disease and there are 50k strokes each year. A fourth of Canadians are affected with lung-related disease, 4 out of 5 are suffering from lower back pain and 11 million musculoskeletal disorders are reported each year.
Common treatments offered by physiotherapists include Orthopedics, Neurology and Sports Rehab with geriatric, pediatric and patients of all ages seeing excellent results. New research introduces more effective techniques every year including innovations in:
- Rehab Robotics
- Water-Based Therapy
- Gamified Rehab
- Applications and Wearables
- Light Therapy
When looking for a physiotherapy clinic you should ensure the physiotherapists are registered. Convenient hours make it easier to stick to your plan and private treatment rooms ensure you are comfortable during treatments.
You can bring reports related to your injury or condition to your first appointment which will take about an hour. Your treatment plan will be discussed and depending on the severity of your condition you might require several appointments to complete your treatment.
