“Physiotherapy is a primary health care profession that promotes physical health, mobility and independent function”
- The Canadian Physiotherapy Association
Physiotherapy will help anybody who experiences difficulty with movement, strength and pain. Physiotherapy will also help anybody looking to improve their endurance, mobility and strength. At Foundation Physiotherapy, we stress the importance of preventative care and encourage everybody to be assessed by a physiotherapist regularly.
Determine the foundation of your injuries
At Foundation Physiotherapy, our first priority is helping you determine the root cause of your symptoms. For example, tennis elbow can actually be referred from your neck and hip pain can be caused by stiffness in your lower back. Runners who experience foot pain may do so because of weak hip muscles. Jumpers who have knee pain will actually improve with strengthening the abdominal and postural muscles.
It is for this reason; your initial assessment is one full hour with a physiotherapist. During the assessment, we spend the time not only to understand your injury, but to also learn about your movement patterns, lifestyle and physical habits.
Re-building your foundation
Our physiotherapists are specialized in sports and orthopaedics. This allows us to integrate a specialized understanding of body movement, body mechanics and ‘hands-on’ manual therapy. We regularly update ourselves through continuing education courses. We offer a variety of techniques involving education, manual therapy and individualized exercise prescription. All of your treatment methods are supported by the most recent and highest quality research.
