How Can We Help?
At Westwood Physiotherapy, our team works in collaboration to ensure you get the best care possible. With a combination of services, including physiotherapy, massage therapy, laser therapy, and more, we strive to empower you. The truth is your body has incredible healing abilities. Sometimes, it just needs a little help.
Our physiotherapists perform a comprehensive assessment, identifying your weaknesses and strengths and helping you bounce back from injury. As such, your treatment may include:
Your physiotherapist prescribes strengthening exercises to help improve muscular imbalances and strengthen weakened areas post-injury. For example, knee injury treatment may involve quad, hamstring, calf, and hip strengthening exercises.
With an injury, you may experience a reduced range of motion. This can limit your movement patterns and also cause further or recurring injuries. Prescribed stretches can help you increase your range of motion, getting you back to your normal.
Manual therapy is hands-on treatment provided by your physiotherapist. This may include stretching, manual traction, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, joint mobilization. The goal of manual therapy is to help realign and address tissue imbalances, help you regain function and strength so you can get back on the court, rink, or field.
Depending on your injury and initial assessment, your physiotherapist may recommend massage therapy to help reduce tension in the body and eliminate scar tissue. At Westwood Physiotherapy, we have expert registered massage therapists who can work in collaboration with the rest of our team to help you make a full recovery.
