HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
At North Simcoe Physiotherapy, we offer a wide variety of services for a comprehensive treatment program customized to meet your needs.
Physiotherapists conduct a thorough assessment of the client's gait, existing injuries or conditions and develop an individualized treatment plan for recovery. Rehabilitation may involve manual therapy, electrotherapy, strength training, neuromuscular electrical stimulation, ultrasound and work hardening exercises.
Registered massage therapists utilize deep tissue, active release, trigger point release, myofascial release, and lymphatic drainage massage techniques to aid in the healing process for a variety of conditions, including migraines, chronic and acute neck and back pain, prenatal issues, TMJ and sports injuries.
A specialized form of physiotherapy, manual therapy is delivered strictly by hand. Physiotherapists use this technique in joint mobilization and manipulations, stretching, tissue distraction and release through movement.
An ancient form of Chinese medicine, acupuncture involves inserting solid filiform acupuncture needles into the skin at specific acupoints on the body to naturally relieve pain and improve energy and function.
Physiotherapists utilize various types of tapes, including Leukotape, Kinesio, K-tape, athletic tape and Hypafix tape in treatment for stability, biofeedback and management and prevention of injuries.
Assistive Devices Program:
The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care runs this program, which provides funding for equipment and supplies for people with long-term disabilities. To receive funding, our Registered Devices Program Authorizer does an assessment, recommends the appropriate device(s) and completes the required application for reimbursement.
Based on doctor's or surgeon's instructions, a physiotherapist puts together an individualized treatment plan to increase strength, mobility and range-of-motion following a surgical procedure.
In-home Assessments and Treatments:
If a client has physical issues that prevent them from coming to the clinic, a physiotherapist can do an assessment and conduct treatments in the home. An initial assessment will be done of the client's condition and their ability to function in their environment. Recommendations will be made to improve gait, transfers and physical abilities and a program will be developed to increase strength and balance. In-home treatments are only done on a short-term basis until the client is able to come into the clinic.
Individuals with work-related injuries are provided with a functional exercise program that simulates their work environment. Job-related activities are done in a controlled environment under the supervision of a physiotherapist. The goal is to get the client physically ready and able to return to work, reducing the chance of re-injury.
