Physiotherapy

One on One Treatment Approach

 

Our practitioners believe that one on one treatment can best speed

your recovery and provide efficient, effective treatment. All of our

treatment sessions are 30 to 60 minutes of one on one care in private

treatment rooms. Our experienced physiotherapists are trained to

treat a wide variety of injuries, both acute and chronic. Your first

visit will consist of a comprehensive medical history and

musculo-skeletal assessment to determine a physical diagnosis

and complete a treatment plan.

Treatments may include the following:

 

Manual Therapy
Physiotherapists use a wide variety of manual therapy techniques to increase joint and muscle mobility. Ken Long has extensive training in osteopathy and uses osteopathic manual techniques to compliment his physiotherapy practice.

Exercise
Our physiotherapists can design specific exercises to help you regain strength, stability, balance and flexibility. Our emphasis is to teach you appropriate exercises that you can continue at home or in a gym independent of us. Exercise programs help improve function following soft tissue and bone injury, and can help alleviate pain and stiffness secondary to surgery, degenerative changes and chronic health conditions. Exercise can improve and strengthen posture, enhance performance and promote health and wellness.

Acupuncture
Our physiotherapist, Ken Long is trained in Acupuncture at the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute. Acupuncture may be included in your treatment plan to reduce pain and inflammation, and is billed as part of your physiotherapy session.

Dry Needling

The purpose of Dry Needling is to help decrease pain and restore function. Its use in a treatment plan is to help further aid in achieving your goals and is not a stand-alone treatment. 

Though Dry Needling uses the same or similar needles to Acupuncture the assessment and the treatment is different. 

Our Physiotherapist Amy Heffernan uses the application of Dry Needling to treat muscular tissue that, through assessment, is found to not be promoting proper movement. Once treated it allows easier movement that was originally painful and stiff. 

Modalities
These may include ultrasound, laser, TENS, IFC, heat and cold. Modalities are used to help alleviate pain and promote soft tissue healing.

Education
This is an important part of physiotherapy practice as our goal is to teach you how to manage and prevent injury and disability. This encourages you to take an active role in recovery and health.

Regulations of Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy practice is regulated by the Nova Scotia College of Physiotherapists. The College’s role is to protect the public and ensure that standards of practice are met.
