Physiotherapy treatment at Rexdale CHC:

  • Involves the client’s active participation
  • Provides Client education and advice on prevention
  • Includes manual therapy (e.g., assisted stretching, mobilizations, and manual traction)
  • Uses different modalities (e.g., ultrasound, TENS, IFC, EMS, heat, ice, etc.)
  • Includes individualized exercises and home exercises programs
  • Offers general cardio and conditioning exercises
  • Provides pain control and self-management techniques

Our one-on-one physiotherapy sessions run approximately one-half hour to one hour with the therapist. The frequency of visits will be recommended by the physiotherapist based on the severity of the condition. While some clients only require a few treatments, others may require up to 6-8 weeks of treatment. Overall, treatment will be short-term with a focus on self-management. Treatment will not be continued indefinitely, even though the client may have a chronic condition. Note that flare-ups may occur after discharge and some additional treatments may be required at some point in the future.

All clients must demonstrate barriers to physiotherapy services elsewhere (e.g. no extended health insurance or other insurance to cover physiotherapy; no work-related injuries or motor vehicle accidents).
