Family Physiotherapy is a Thornhill based clinic that believes in client centered, manual therapy approach to physiotherapy and massage therapy care. We offer quality treatment and a unique approach to rehabilitation designed to do more than just alleviate immediate symptoms you may be experiencing. We try to help further by addressing the cause behind the problem and therefore decreasing the possibility of its recurrence.
We provide physiotherapy, massage therapy and naturopathic medicine assessment and treatment (provided by licensed therapists and naturopathic doctors) with a strong emphasis on manual therapy, acupuncture and active rehabilitation therapy through a series of well selected, patient-specific exercises. Our physiotherapists and massage therapists have a strong manual therapy background to individualize your treatment and minimize your down time. Our naturopathic doctor can help identify underlying areas that may be preventing you from achieving your health and fitness goals. Our therapists provide the one on one care and guidance you need to get you back on track without the use of assistants.
We treat the pain and find the problem
All of our physiotherapists, naturopathic doctors and massage therapists have completed extensive post graduate training. An initial assessment at the clinic starts with a thorough biomechanical examination where the real cause behind the symptoms is searched out. Our physiotherapists and massage therapists will explain the findings and work with you to determine an appropriate treatment plan with your goals in mind. The treatment is conducted based on the information gathered through the initial assessment to treat the pain and improve the problem areas that lead to the pain. We use evidence based manual therapy and targeted exercises to reverse the underlying issues behind the symptoms you are experiencing. We also utilize various modalities such as acupuncture, dry needling, ultrasound and several electrotherapeutic devices including Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (“Shockwave”) to help our patients deal with their immediate discomfort and accelerate their healing.
Prehab to treat the problem before the pain
Have you noticed increased soreness after exercise? Did you have a nagging run injury, golf or tennis injury or difficulty increasing your weights in a conditioning program? Are you trying to start a new training program? Do you have a fear of falling? Often, previous injuries and muscle imbalances due to poor posture, work tasks and incorrect ergonomics can be the trigger to a later injury. These underlying problems are more easily addressed and at a much lower time and cost commitment if found before the onset of pain. Our physiotherapists are trained in screening examinations and can teach you how to address the problems. Additionally, a naturopathic doctor can ensure that your diet and supplementation are allowing you to achieve your fitness goals.
