Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a healthcare discipline concerned with promoting health and preventing disease by examining, diagnosing, treating, and rehabilitating impairments and disabilities that affect the nervous, musculoskeletal, and cardiopulmonary systems. Simply put, physiotherapy treats functional limitations arising from injuries and diseases that affect muscles, joints, and bones, as well as the nervous (brain, nerves, spinal cord), respiratory (lungs), circulatory (blood vessels), and cardiac (heart) systems. Physiotherapy seeks to help patients regain maximal physical capacity according to their own potential for recovery. To this end, physiotherapy professionals employ a variety of treatment methods including manual techniques, exercises, electrotherapy, hydrotherapy, as well as heat and cold therapy. These methods encourage patients to participate in their own recovery so they can acquire the physical abilities needed to function in society, perform daily activities, succeed at work, and participate in leisure and sport activities.

Isokinetic Evaluation & Rehabilitation

An isokinetic evaluation is a form of muscle testing to determine the strength of a giving muscle or muscle group.

Isokinetic Evaluation & Rehabilitation

An isokinetic evaluation is a form of muscle testing to determine the strength of a giving muscle or muscle group. We perform this test using the Biodex System 4, a sophisticated piece of machinery that accurately measures the amount of force a muscle group generates during a certain movement and throughout its entire range of motion. The analysis of this information can be extremely valuable in the rehab process, as it allows us to determine exact points of weakness that must be addressed and treated. In some cases, such as knee and shoulder surgeries in athletes, it becomes critical in determining when the athlete can resume their sport safely. The Biodex is also a great rehabilitation tool with vast capabilities such as eccentric strengthening, continuous passive motion, and customized strengthening programs. An incredibly useful feature is the real-time feedback provided to the user throughout the training session.

Radial Shockwave Therapy

This method is used by therapists all over the world with great success.

Radial Shockwave Therapy

Radial shockwave therapy (RSWT) is a method for the treatment of orthopedic disorders developed over the past 20 years. A projectile accelerated in the hand piece generates a mechanical pressure wave, which is transferred to the human body by an applicator head and which radiates out in the tissue. The mechanical energy is absorbed by the tissue and decreases as the distance from the application site increases. The mechanical stress triggers reactions in the tissue that have a positive influence on a wide range of orthopedic and neurological conditions The method is used by therapists all over the world with great success. Radial shockwave therapy treats succesfully orthopedic problems such as: • Calcified or not calcified tendinopathy of the shoulder; • Tennis or Golfer’s elbow; • Patellar Tendinopathy; • Achilles Tendinopathy; • Plantar’s Fasciitis with or without Heel Spur; • Etc.

Dry Needling

Dry needling is the usage of dry needles under the skin (differs from acupuncture) performed by a physiotherapist.

Dry Needling

Dry needling (PPAS) is a treatment technique that can be used by a physiotherapist who has obtained the certification issued by the Ordre professionnel de la physiothérapie du Québec following the successful completion of a rigorous training on the usage of needles under the skin. As the name suggests, it is the use of a dry needle similar to acupuncture needles. It is important to understand that these needles are used for therapeutic purposes different from those of traditional acupuncture based on a holistic ancestral Chinese approach. PPAS therefore differs from acupuncture, and the needle produces a local effect in the region where the dry needles are used. The goals of PPAS are the reduction of pain, improvement of function, decrease in inflammation, etc. We use this technique to help with trigger points, tendinopathies, swelling, etc.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy has numerous positive physiological effects. These effects allow, among others, muscular and nervous relaxation; they facilitate blood and lymphatic circulation, encourage the elimination of toxins and stimulate vital organ functions. The massage acts as muscular and ligamentous tonic. It is also credited with a strong bodymind dimension by dislodging emotional memories that have been stocked in body tissues and organs. Therefore, it is not uncommon to notice emotional changes during a massage session. Vital energy, chakras, vital points and several other principles will be discussed, according to traditions and schools of thought. Massage therapy is generally practised with hands, but also with feet, elbows and even knees and the manoeuvres can be applied over the whole body or only a single part. It is possible to concentrate on skin and muscles and then to go deeper towards tendons, ligaments and fasciae or still, to aim for specific points or energy centers.

Osteopathy

Osteopathy, also known as osteopathic approach is a manual therapy discipline. Its main goal is to help restore the human body's natural equilibrium and harmony.

Osteopathy

Osteopathy, or osteopathic approach, is a hands-on manual therapy treatment method that looks at the way the body functions as whole, rather than viewing its parts or symptoms separately (i.e. a hurt shoulder here, a neck strain there). It’s based on the philosophy that the body has an innate ability to heal itself when its components are in balance. The goal of osteopathy is to restore that proper balance and function, allowing your body to heal through its own natural processes. It works to balance your nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems, improving your range of motion and relieving discomfort or other symptoms.
