PhysioActive provides professional care to our patients with the ultimate goal of returning a patient back to optimal health as quickly as possible through a comprehensive treatment plan. While the treatment plan may differ for each patient depending on the injury, one constant will always be applied – our Physiotherapists will educate you on your condition & explain the purpose of your treatment plan.
We believe it is important for a patient to understand their injury and what they can do to recover from it.
Manual therapy may include joint mobilizations, which is a hands-on treatment used to help a “stiff” joint regain its normal range of motion. Massage and other soft tissue work is also considered manual therapy.
In many cases, exercises are required to correct a muscle imbalance, strengthen an injured muscle, or prevent re-injury. Our therapists will provide you with a complete exercise program to help you get back to the activities you love.
Whether recovering from a hip or knee replacement, a tendon repair of the shoulder, or various other surgeries, we can help you recover from your surgery with the guidance of your surgeon.
K-Taping can be used to help support joints, increase or decrease tension on a muscle, and is also used to help treat lymphedema.
Ultrasound consists of high frequency sound waves and is used most often to help optimize healing of a tendon or ligament, such as in an ankle sprain. Ultrasound can also have a heating effect on the body’s tissues when desired.
Interferential Current or TENS
Interferential Current (IFC) involves the use of medium frequency electrical currents that are applied to body’s tissues to help decrease pain and help increase circulation. TENS works in a similar manner, but does not provide the same circulation effects. Typically, a patient will feel a light tingling sensation while receiving this type of treatment.
