We provide comprehensive individual assessments performed by registered and experienced practitioners. This process involves listening to you regarding the history of your complaints, and the goals you have for your recovery. Then we do a series of physical tests to help establish your diagnosis. Diagnosis is not the only goal of your assessment; we also want to uncover the likely reasons that caused your condition. This will help establish the most appropriate treatment plan to help you recover as quickly as possible.
Manual Therapy involves hands on assessment and treatment by your physiotherapist. Manual therapy is used to mobilize the joints of your spine and extremities to improve mobility and relieve pain from movement dysfunctions. Restoring mobility enables you to move freely and efficiently allowing you to resume your normal activities.
Soft Tissue Therapy
Soft tissue therapy is another form of hands on treatment that is used by your physiotherapist to relieve pain and restore movement. Soft tissue therapy is used to treat problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves.
The therapists at Progress Physiotherapy have post-graduate training in Active Release Techniques (ART), the “gold standard” in soft tissue therapy.
Exercise therapy quite simply involves exercise! You may be assigned exercises that help keep and build on the improvements you experience from your in clinic treatments. Exercise can focus on mobility, stability, balance and control of movement. These attributes when combined enable efficient and pain free movement.
At Progress Physiotherapy we employ a wide range of electrotherapeutic devices. These tools may be used to help relieve pain, restore mobility and help your resume your activities quickly.
- Interferential Current (IFC)
- Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TNS)
Medical Acupuncture and Dry Needling
Acupuncture can be used to relieve pain and reduce tightness in soft tissues. Many patients experience improved recovery rates by receiving acupuncture as part of their treatment plan.
At Progress Physiotherapy our therapists have post-graduate training and certification to offer patients this service.
Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA)
At Progress Physiotherapy our team is experienced managing and treating MVA injuries. We can lead you through the recovery process, arrange insurance coverage and create a treatment plan that meets your rehabilitation needs.
At Progress Physiotherapy our team is experienced managing and treating post-operative orthopedic surgical procedures. Common examples include: spinal surgery, hip or knee joint replacements, carpal tunnel release, shoulder rotator cuff repairs, knee ACL reconstruction and cartilage repair.
At Progress Physiotherapy we screen athletes of all levels and abilities to determine two important factors: Injury risk management and performance limitations. Athletes who have low risk for injury ultimately perform better and have less interruption from training. Likewise an athlete who can identify and work on their individual weakness will perform a higher level and will have reduced their risk for injury at the same time.
At Progress Physiotherapy we use both the Functional Movement Screen (FMS), and Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA). Our staff possesses post-graduate training and certification to offer these services.
Educating our patients is something we take very seriously at Progress Physiotherapy. Informed and knowledgeable patients recover faster. You can expect your therapist to review your condition, treatment options, home exercises, and therapist and patient expectations clearly.
Titleist Performance Golf Evaluations
At Progress Physiotherapy we offer golf fitness and performance evaluations. These evaluations are used to reduce injury risk, keeping you healthy in golf, and to create a plan to help you perform at a higher physical level with your golf game.
We utilize physical screening and assessment as well as 3D kinematic swing tools to capture your individual swing characteristics. These powerful tools allow you to see how you can improve efficiency in your swing.
Vestibular rehabilitation involves exercise-based treatment designed to promote central nervous system adaptation for inner ear deficits. Vestibular rehabilitation can help improve and often resolve a variety of vestibular conditions. These include benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) and unilateral or bilateral vestibular hypofunction (reduced inner ear function on one or both sides) associated with Ménière’s disease, labyrinthitis, and vestibular neuritis. Individuals with long-term unresolved inner ear disorders, who have undergone a period of medical management with little or no success, may benefit. Vestibular rehabilitation can also help the acute onset of vertigo or dizziness.
Applying light produced by low level laser and superluminous diodes, triggers normal cellular functions that lead to faster wound healing, pain relief and accelerated functional recovery.
Therapeutic ultrasound is high frequency sound waves. Ultrasound can be used to reduce pain and inflammation and therefore speed tissue healing times. It can also be used to break up scar tissue and adhesions that often form after soft tissue injuries.
It’s simple: recover faster, even from chronic conditions.
Shockwave Therapy is an evidence-based, scientifically proven regenerative tissue treatment. It has become the gold standard of non-invasive soft tissue healing in the field of rehabilitation. Shockwaves help promote the healing and repair of damaged soft tissues such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Shockwave therapy is also used to speed the healing of stress fractures and non-union bone fractures.
Progress Physiotherapy is a leader in Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) options. We are one of only a small number of clinics in Canada offering both Radial (RSWT) and Focus Shockwave Therapy (FSWT). The more common RSWT can effectively treat superficial (1-2cm) soft tissues. FSWT, currently rare in Canada, allows for adjustable treatment depths. FSWT can penetrate much deeper (1-12cm) into the body.
Having both technologies enable our clinicians to treat both superficial and deep tissues to facilitate faster healing. By providing our patients with industry-leading technology, we are successful in treating both difficult and stubborn conditions and improving patient outcomes at a faster rate than traditional rehabilitation methods.
Pilates is a form of exercise that aims to strengthen your entire body evenly with an emphasis on correct breathing, posture, and core strength.
