REGAIN YOUR MOBILITY AND STRENGTH
A physiotherapist is a health professional with a bachelor’s and/or master’s degree from one of the 14 medical schools in Canada. He or she must also be a member of a professional order and be covered by professional liability insurance. A physiotherapist is governed by a professional code of ethics. There are three main fields of practice: orthopaedics (or musculoskeletal), neurology and cardio-respiratory.
Dry Needling Stimulation
RELIEVE MUSCLE ACHES AND PAINS
It is a treatment technique using small puncture needles placed under the dermis, relieving various myofascial syndromes causing chronic pain. This technique developed by Dr. GUNN treats dysfunctional muscles that have been contracted by various stresses. This treatment stimulates and relaxes the retracted muscles. It provides significant pain relief. Dry needling is a painless technique with few side effects.
STRENGTHEN YOUR MUSCLES
Sports medicine is the medical discipline that focuses on neuro-musculo-skeletal injuries related to physical activity. Interventions offer preventive services, rapid intervention on the field and rehabilitation of sports injuries. This discipline offers the possibility of maintaining strong and flexible joints and muscles for a better level of physical fitness.
FOR OPTIMAL RECOVERY
Massage therapy is an important part of our care plans. It brings relaxation and well-being to the patient. In complementarity with another therapy or as a unique approach, massage therapy treats many types of injuries and relieves stress. The results obtained are amazing and allow for optimal recovery. Our practitioners offer different techniques: sports massage, kinetic Swedish or soft to deep Swedish massage, passive mobilization and lymphatic drainage.
RESTORE YOUR JOINTS
Orthopaedics is a medical specialty that evaluates and restores an individual’s musculoskeletal system, considering bones, joints, cartilage and all soft tissues, including ligaments and muscles.
FOR DEEP RECOVERY
The CYBEX system is a rehabilitation chair with a unique test system that measures force. This test adapts to the patient’s needs as well as to the treatment methods chosen by the clinician. It is also a test for isolated joints and an extremely valuable training system for the rehabilitation of physical deficiencies. The test collects accurate data and helps to determine preparation for return to normal activities or even sports.
FOR A QUICKER RECOVERY
Physio Sports Santé can now prescribe X-Rays if needed. We are proud to be one of the first physiotherapy clinic to offer this service. This allows us to get results faster, hence improving your recovery.
START WITH A GOOD EVALUATION
We offer a complete evaluation including first, a health check. Then, a history of the problem as well as a complete physical evaluation that will lead to a diagnosis. We will then draw up a list of problems and establish an intervention plan in order to restore the client to an optimal level of health.
