Our clinical approach is strongly hands-on. By conducting a thorough assessment, we will try to identify the root causes of the problem and focus our treatment to achieve a full recovery and prevent re-occurrence.
Bridgeview Physiotherapy offers assessments and treatments for a wide variety of physical conditions, including:
- Sprains and strains
- Chronic or acute back, neck and spinal pain
- Post-surgical rehabilitation
- Repetitive strain and overuse injuries
- Tendinitis and bursitis
- Muscle and joint pain
- Breast cancer and treatment/surgery side effects
Treatments of these conditions may include:
- Postural exercises to improve function:
Having good posture helps reduce pain, increase function, and give you more energy so you can get on with your day.
- Joint mobilizations or manipulations:
Hands-on techniques that allow for more movement in the stiff joint without moving the joint into a painful range. This results in more range of motion, leading to better mobility and function.
- Individual exercise prescription for rehabilitation: Exercises will be specific to what you need to improve your range of motion, strength, and mobility. You may do postural exercises, core stability exercises, general strengthening, and range of motion exercises.
- Acupuncture: A technique involving fine, sterile needles being inserted in specific points in the body. The goal is to reduce inflammation, increase blood flow, promote relaxation, and reduce pain.
- Soft tissue techniques: These may involve light massage, myofascial release, or stretching, all of which allow for better tissue mobility.
- Core strengthening programs: These programs involve specific exercises for the smaller postural muscles of your pelvis, back, and abdomen. The purpose is to strengthen your back and pelvis so you can be more functional, have more energy, and less pain.
- Breast cancer rehabilitation: Many women experience tightness, loss of strength and range of motion, and pain after breast cancer surgery and treatment. Rehab can help restore the mobility of the arms, chest, and back so you can continue to do the things you want to do!
- Breast cancer reconstruction rehabilitation: After reconstruction, most women experience a loss of function as they have difficulty moving their arms above their head, lifting heavier items, or even getting comfortable enough to sleep. Rehab focuses on restoring mobility, strength, posture, and function so you can feel like yourself again!
