Advantage Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation is with you every step of the way... From your initial assessment, through your treatment program and even beyond! We will endevour to return you to your pre-injury level of health and provide you with the necessary education to help you stay there.
Our physiotherapists will undertake a comprehensive assessment of your problem, which will involve obtaining a full history of your condition and performing a physical examination.
The information obtained during your assessment will then be used to create a treatment plan that suits your specific requirements. As your recovery progresses this treatment plan will be modified, on the basis of reassessments and your feedback.
Your treatment program may include:
Manual Therapy – joint and spinal mobilization and manipulation
Electrotherapy – including ultra-sound, TENS, muscle stimulation
Laser Therapy – to optimize healing in soft tissue injuries
Interferential Current Therapy – for reducing pain and swelling following an acute injury
Mechanical Traction – for spinal problems
Individualized Supervised Exercise Programs – to improve strength, flexibility, balance, coordination and endurance
Work Hardening / Sport Simulations – to facilitate return to pre-injury condition
Acupuncture – to control pain and inflammation
We aim to continually integrate patient education into all aspects of your treatment, from your initial assessment to your final stages of work hardening, sports simulation or posture correction. This way, you can help yourself recover faster and reduce the chances of your condition recurring.
Summary patient status reports will be faxed to your doctor after your admission and discharge. If you notify us prior to a follow-up visit to your doctor, we will be happy to provide you with a brief progress report to take with you. Detailed modified work recommendations will also be provided as and when required.
