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.
Dizziness-and-balanceDizziness and balance issues can include vertigo, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), nausea, light-headedness, vision issues, motion sensitivity and sensitivity to crowds. They can severely impact quality of life if left untreated. Vestibular rehabilitation can help improve symptoms.
These conditions may predispose your feet to over-pronation, which has been associated with numerous injuries and conditions, including bunions, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, and hip, knee and low back pain. A thorough biomechanical and gait evaluation of your lower extremities may help to recognize over-pronation, which can be treated with proper footwear and custom-made plaster casted orthotics. Flat feet and low arches can be evaluated in children as well.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The sciatic nerve run from the lower back, through the hip and into each buttock before traveling down each leg. Sciatica is the term used to describe the symptoms when there is pressure on the nerve, causing pain in the lower back, hip or buttock. Physiotherapy or chiropractic services can help relieve sciatic pain.
Shoulder pain can result from bursitis, frozen shoulder, tendonitis or injury and overuse. On rare occasions it may be triggered by illness or infection. A holistic treatment plan that may include physiotherapy, acupuncture, massage therapy or chiropractic services may help.
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.
Vertigo is the sensation of feeling off-balance, dizzy or that world around you is spinning. It is most often caused by an inner ear imbalance. An assessment and treatment program from a trained vestibular therapist may help.
