Our three physiotherapists have extensive clinical experience in treating a variety of conditions and injuries that affect athletes, workers, and all age groups — from children to seniors.
A physiotherapy assessment involves:
Accurate taking of history
Thorough physical examination to determine the diagnosis
Development of an individualized treatment plan
Client education for diagnosis and potential underlying factors
Your treatment may include:
Therapeutic exercises to improve spinal stability, increase strength and flexibility, and correct muscle imbalances.
Pool therapy, using either the shallow warm pool or the larger standard pool of the Dartmouth Sportsplex. Pool therapy is useful for improving gait, balance, and restoring joint movement in a gravity-reduced and safe environment.
Hands-on manual therapy techniques to gently mobilize or manipulate soft tissue to restore normal motion.
Local modalities, such as ice, heat, ultrasound, electro-stimulation, and acupuncture.
Fall prevention and balance training for the elderly population.
Sports-specific rehabilitation programs for competitive and recreational athletes.
Work re-conditioning programs to assist injured workers back to work.
Maritime Physiotherapy offers programs designed to provide long-term pain relief for Halifax patients. Whether you are suffering from an injury or chronic pain, many patients have found massage and manual therapy techniques to be some of the safest and most effective ways to alleviate pain — and do so without the use of potentially harmful medications.
