Physiotherapy

What is a Physiotherapist?

A physiotherapist is a university trained primary health care professional, who treats patients with physical conditions/injuries. Our goal at CPSC is to restore mobility, functional independence and to promote overall wellness.

Can Physiotherapy help me?

Our Physiotherapists will carry out a detailed assessment to identify the underlying cause and the structures involved. This includes taking a detailed history and doing a comprehensive physical examination. Our Physiotherapists will then create an individualized management plan based on your goals, to restore full function.

What will the treatment include?

At CPSC our Physiotherapists focus on manual therapy, ‘a hands on approach’ to treating musculoskeletal conditions. Physiotherapists use spinal/joint mobilizations to gently glide or traction a joint, to restore movement, reduce pain and muscle spasm. Soft tissue techniques include:

  • Massage/Active Release Therapy
  • Trigger Point Therapy
  • Friction Massage/Muscle Energy Techniques

Active spinal/joint mobilization and soft tissue techniques are aimed at:

  • Decreasing pain
  • Breakdown scar tissue
  • Restoring muscle elasticity/length
  • Improving range of motion
