Take a Break And Stretch

Many of us are spending long hours in front of the computer these days, and that can have a major impact on our short- and long-term health. Short-term sedentarism causes blood pooling, losses in mental acuity, and muscle and joint soreness.

Recovering After An Accident – What You Need to Know 
One of the last things any of us want to get into is a car accident. And yet, in Metro Vancouver, there are more than 60,000 car accidents each year. While our cars may take the brunt of the noticeable damage, the toll that motor vehicle accidents take on our bodies can also be significant.

Did you know you have access to massage, physio, chiro, active rehab, acupuncture and counselling sessions immediately after an accident, without a doctor\’s note at little or no cost to you? Find Out How 

 

Ankle Brace

Bracing 101 
Bracing can be helpful post-surgery, post-injury, and in situations where restriction of movement is needed for recovery. It can be fitted to almost any place on the body in need of stabilization. Braces are most commonly fitted to wrists, hands and knees. The flexibility and type of brace depends on the specific needs of your condition; hinged braces for example would allow the knee a greater range of motion so that it can move in a manner closer to the natural motion of the joint.

Did you know most extended health insurance companies cover the full cost of braces?

Post-Operative Rehabilitation Physiotherapy,  sometimes called Post-Surgical Physiotherapy, is a treatment plan for patients who are undergoing surgery. Surgeons advise patients to start physiotherapy as soon as they have finished surgery to achieve the best long-term results. Our experienced physiotherapists are already familiar with the needs of post-op patients and are prepared with specific rehabilitation sessions to get you better, faster.

Did you know that post-op physiotherapy can help you return to your activities of daily life faster?
