Return to Work/Play
Physiotherapy can help you return to work/play as quickly as possible.
Did you know that over 2 million high school athletes and 3.5 million children under the age of 14 get injured each year in sports? Additionally, the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety reports that around 300,000 claims for lost time due to a work-related accident or sickness were filed last year.
Regardless of your age or degree of physical ability, physiotherapy can assist you in accelerating the recovery process following a sports or job injury. With our injury rehabilitation programs, you will quickly be able to resume your favorite hobbies. If you’re looking for a simple and effective solution to get back to work or get off the sidelines, contact our office now to schedule a consultation with one of our highly trained practitioners.
How can I profit from physiotherapy?
- Physiotherapy effectively treats injuries and aids in injury prevention.
Our physiotherapists are skilled and sensitive when it comes to assisting others. They offer a wealth of knowledge on rehabilitation treatments for a variety of sports and areas of life, as well as injury prevention. They are movement experts, capable of identifying elements contributing to your injury that you may have overlooked.
- Each patient’s treatment plan is unique.
Our practitioners at Family Physiotherapy recognize that no two athletes are alike, and therefore no two treatment approaches should be identical. Each individual perceives pain and injury differently, and each individual’s body recovers differently. Following a comprehensive physical examination, your physiotherapist will develop a treatment plan for you based on the nature of your injury, your current state of recovery, your specific goals, and any underlying conditions. Your treatment plan will include specific stages that will lead to your return to work or sport.
If you were referred by a physician or surgeon, your physiotherapist would also consider any special instructions on physical exercise that you may have been given. They will collaborate closely with anyone else involved in your work-related or sports-related injury’s medical treatment and rehabilitation.
- Physiotherapy can assist you in avoiding potentially harmful medications or invasive surgical procedures.
Your physiotherapist will develop a treatment plan for you that is specific to your needs. The treatment strategy will be natural and holistic in nature, incorporating services such as:
- Exercises for therapeutic purposes
- Manual therapy education
- Modalities of electrotherapy
