At Family Physiotherapy our physiotherapists work as part of our team with the goal being your wellness
Family Physiotherapy is a Thornhill based clinic that believes in one on one client centered, manual therapy (hands on) approach to physiotherapy and massage therapy care. Our team of physiotherapists, massage therapists and naturopathic doctors are all trained in providing quality treatment. Our unique approach to rehabilitation is designed to do more than just alleviate immediate symptoms you may be experiencing. Our physiotherapists can also help you to modify your current exercise program in a way to maintain your current conditioning level while recovering from your injury. We’ll also help further by addressing the cause behind the problem and therefore decreasing the possibility of its recurrence.
All of our physiotherapists, naturopathic doctors and massage therapists are licensed and have completed extensive post graduate training. An initial assessment at the clinic starts with a detailed 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. Our assessment and treatments are one on one without the use of assistants. 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.
