Common conditions we treat
Arthritis is the classifcation of approximately 200 rheumatic diseases and conditions that affect joints, the tissues that surround the joint, and other connective tissue, causing pain, stiffness and mobility challenges. Assessment and treatment from a physiotherapist and chiropractor may help relieve the pain and stiffness.
ConcussionA concussion is a brain injury that has physical symptoms such as headache, nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, and cognitive and emotional affects, including brain fog, lack of mental focus and fatigue. Concussion care services can help both speed recovery and prevent future injury.
Frozen shoulder is a progressive condition that often starts with pain in the shoulder joint during basic movement. If the condition is left untreated, pain increases and mobility decreases. Physiotherapists can assess and develop a treatment plan.
Headaches can be caused by a variety of conditions and once assessed by a healthcare professional can be helped with physiotherapy treatment.
A herniated disc refers to a problem with one of the rubbery cushions (disks) between the individual bones (vertebrae) that stack up to make your spine. Chiropractic services can help with the associated pain and discomfort.
Knee pain can be caused by bursitis, a torn tendon, ACL tear or injury and overuse. It is most frequently the result of osteoarthritis. Physiotherapy can help speed recovery.
Low back pain is one of the most common patient complaints. It can result from arthritis, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, sciatica, injury or overuse. An assessment from a physiotherapist or chiropractor can help provide a diagnosis and treatment plan.
Muscles sprains and strains can result from sport or motor vehicle injuries, overuse or common activity. They can range to mild, moderate to severe requiring more intensive intervention. Physiotherapy and massage therapy can help speed recovery.
Neck pain can result from poor posture, injury like whiplash, infection in the lymph nodes or throat, or a herniated disc. Physiotherapy, massage therapy or chiropractic treatment can help improve mobility and pain.
Complications following surgery can include pain, limited mobility, numbness and emotional issues. An assessment from a qualified physiotherapy along with a detailed treatment plan can help to alleviate post-surgery challenges.
Posture issues, or an excessively curved spine can result from hip, foot or neck/back joint issues, often from sitting improperly at work, standing for long periods, or common foot problems like fallen arches. Chiropractic services, or an assessment from an orthotist/pedorthist may help.
The rotator cuff consists of four muscles that surround the shoulder blade (scapula), and help to hold the arm bone (humerus) in the shoulder capsule. It is easily injured by sport, repetitive use and common daily activity. Physiotherapists can help diagnose and treat symptoms.
Sport injuries can occur in weekend warriors to professional athletes, ranging from minor to acute. A treatment plan from physiotherapists and sport medicine physicians can help speed recovery and prevent future injury.
