Why Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is one of the allied health professions that, by using mechanical force and movements (bio-mechanics or kinesiology), manual therapy, exercise therapy, and electrotherapy, remediates impairments and promotes mobility and function. Physical therapy is used to improve a patient’s quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis, and physical intervention.

  • Additional Info

    Prevention: Maintain A Toned Physique.

    Prevention is a key role for Physiotherapists. Physiotherapy promotes toned muscles and most physiotherapy patients find they have gained strength and muscle and lost fat after a few weeks of consistently going to their therapy sessions and performing their home exercises regularly.

  • Help & Support

    Personal Independence and the pursuit of the perfect posture.

    Injury can easily effect activities of daily living and occupational performance. Pain can be a major barrier inhibiting personal independence, through limitation in movement and function. Would you like to be one of those people who seem to naturally have great posture? Physiotherapy can help you get there. While good posture requires thought and effort at first, over time it gets easier. It also becomes more natural as you strengthen your core muscles, which a physiotherapist can help you do.

  • Suffering from a new injury

    Suffering from a new injury or a chronic one that is leaving you in pain or unable to live an active lifestyle? A Physiotherapist is a key piece to solving these issues. Physiotherapists focus on understanding your body, providing solutions to support alleviating pain and stiffness, assisting with mobility and strength, all while attaining functional goals to allow for an active body. Physiotherapists are experts in analysing posture and common injuries caused by postural dysfunctions that can lead to increased pain and discomfort. Posture can be managed conservatively through understanding your body and what the root cause of the issues may be. Stretching and strengthening can be a huge factor in treating postural conditions.

    Our physiotherapists are experienced in providing treatments that can focus on prevention through stretching, strengthening and stability programs. Depending on what your body needs, a more movement-based approach may be beneficial. The team at PhysioDNA uses multiple treatment styles to get the desired results without the unwanted and harmful risks that some drugs and surgeries can have.

    No two bodies are made the exact same. Our approach at PhysioDNA is individualised based on your body type, activity level, injury, posture, and goals. We tailor solutions based on your assessment. We work with you to create a plan that targets your body and works with your schedule to get you the results you need.

    Feel free to come to your appointment wearing clothing that you would feel comfortable moving in.  In most cases if you can bring a t-shirt or shorts (especially if we are looking at your knee or shoulder), it allows for the therapist to be able to access and observe the area better.  Should you feel uncomfortable with this, not a problem, we can work with you to find solutions that you are comfortable with. 

    If you have notes, reports, images that are relevant to your injury from your doctor or specialist please feel free to email then to the clinic ahead of time: clinic@physiodna.com or bring a physical copy to your appointment to allow the therapist to review them.

    Our physiotherapists are all educated with the highest University accreditations, members of the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario.
