Physiotherapy, Physical Therapy, Sports Medicine
Custom Treatment Plan
Physiotherapy, physical therapy, sports medicine are interchangeable terms for the same service. Our physiotherapists combine their in-depth knowledge of body mechanics with hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat a huge variety of conditions and injuries. They are experienced with everything from Post-MVA (motor vehicle accident) and Post-surgical rehab to everyday issues like lower back pain, neck pain and headaches.
Our physiotherapists use hands on manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercise and movement, pain science/biopsychosocial approach, heat and cold therapies, muscle stimulation and TENS, joint mobilizations and more.
We believe in providing focused, high quality physiotherapy care by treating one patient at a time. When you are here, you are the priority patient and your physiotherapist is dedicated to working with just you. You get your physio’s undivided attention because we don’t treat multiple patients at once. We also guarantee you won’t ever be left alone with a passive therapy like a heating pad, for any length of time. We’re here to work.
We also have longer initial visits and follow up visits because we don’t like to rush. Rushing leads to missing things and making mistakes. We take our time and focus on figuring out what is driving your dysfunction or pain, rather than coming up with a quick band-aide solution.
Physiotherapists have a broad scope of practice in BC. This means they have training and access to many treatment tools and types of equipment. At Remedy Wellness Centre we believe in utilizing the most evidence and science based treatment techniques, which means they have been proven to be effective in recent clinical trials and studies.
If you are a new patient to physiotherapy at Remedy Wellness Centre, we recommend you book an Initial Visit with our physiotherapist. Together you will determine a follow up treatment schedule and home-care plan.
Manual Therapy/ Hands On Modalities
This is the most common modality you can expect your physiotherapist to use. The term “manual therapy” means hands on therapy and includes things like joint mobilizations and massage techniques. Our physiotherapists are very hands on so you feel like things actually changed by the end of the treatment. Manual therapy helps to relieve pain, tension, stiffness and immobility.
Manual physiotherapy techniques are effective and non-invasive treatment methods for increasing joint mobility, soft tissue pliability, improving spinal health and restoring ease of movement and range of motion.
Since our moto is “hand on healthcare,” you can expect this to be incorporated into your treatment plan.
Assessing your range of motion, strength posture gives your physio a very clear picture of what exercises you would benefit from. We understand that not everyone has access to a gym or fancy equipment, so we build routines that suit your lifestyle.
We can work with everything from low cost resistance bands and free weights, to body weight exercises or full on athlete training with specialized equipment. We’ve seen it all and done it all, so bring it on.
Post MVA (Motor Vehicle Accident) Rehab
Physiotherapy is covered by ICBC. At Remedy Wellness Centre we direct bill ICBC for physiotherapy and other services covered by ICBC.
After a car accident patients commonly seek physiotherapy for back pain, headaches, concussion, whiplash and other spine injuries, rehab post immobilization from a bone break, post surgical recovery and more.
With ICBC claims, Physiotherapy is a good place to start. Our physiotherapist can do an in depth assessment and then recommend any adjunct therapies if they would be additionally beneficial to your recovery.
We recommend that you try to keep all therapies under one roof, so your practitioners can communicate (with your permission) and coordinate car, keeping you on a reasonable and effective treatment plan.
