Orthopedic Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation at our clinic in Burlington.
At Pillars of Wellness, orthopedic physiotherapy and rehabilitation is conducted individually by an experienced physiotherapist.
After you receive the initial diagnosis for your condition from your family physician, our team will step in to treat and rehabilitate your injury using orthopedic physiotherapy. Each client will receive their own custom rehabilitation and treatment plan, built according to their needs.
Some therapies receive may include Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), dry or moist heat, ice therapy, as well as ultrasound to relieve acute or chronic pain. In addition, the physiotherapist may use hands-on modalities ranging from exercise prescription and stretching, muscle/joint mobilization, therapeutic taping, and custom knee bracing.
Be sure to bring any medical reports, such as x-ray, ultrasound, MRI, and any reports from your family physician or hospital, to your first appointment at Pillars of Wellness. Here, the physiotherapist will evaluate your condition and address what is causing the pain or discomfort.
If your pain is severe, the physiotherapist may recommend moderate exercise, as well as analgesic and anti-inflammatory medications, to reduce the aches and inflammation in the body, are recommended.
If you prefer to use natural supplements or herbal medicine, our naturopathic doctor can recommend effective options for pain relief and anti-inflammatories.
Once you feel healthy enough to return to regular day-to-day activities, our team can provide you with outpatient care strategies to help maintain your health and prevent further injury.
