Intramuscular Dry Needling
Pelvic Health Physiotherapy
Pre- and Post-Operative Care
What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapists understand how to get your body moving well. They work to restore pain free movement, and improve function and performance. Physiotherapists are skilled in prevention, assessment and management of conditions affecting the musculoskeletal, circulatory, respiratory and nervous systems. They treat physical symptoms caused by illness, disease, injury, age or inactivity. You do not need a doctor’s referral to see a physiotherapist, although your extended health insurance may require it.

Our physiotherapists have completed post graduate training in multiple areas of care and many are FCAMPT certified.

- Arthritis is a cause of tenderness and stiffness in one or more joints. The most common symptoms include stiffness of the joint, pain with movement and swelling. Symptoms can worsen over time. The most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis, where the cartilage lining the joint is affected. Another type of arthritis is rheumatoid arthritis, which occurs when the immune system attacks the joints.
- Concussion can occur because of a blow or jolt to the head or body, a fall, or other injury that jars the brain. You do not have to lose consciousness to have a concussion. There might not be any outward signs of a concussion. Symptoms can start immediately, or over a few hours after the injury. Most adults will recover within 2 weeks of a concussion and most children within 4 weeks. Physiotherapy treatment can help with recovery following a concussion, especially if symptoms persist for a longer period.
- Headaches can occur for many reasons and can be complex and debilitating. Headaches can result from concussions, blood pressure fluctuations, stress, medication side-effects, vision problems, neurological issues, and vascular issues. The neck is commonly overlooked as a source of headaches. This type of headache is called a cervicogenic headache and can be easily treated with physiotherapy.
- A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or decreased, preventing brain tissue from getting oxygen and nutrients. Following a stroke motion and balance can be impaired. Sometimes pain is experienced in joints where movement no longer occurs normally. Physiotherapy can help to treat the physical symptoms experienced following a stroke.
- Back pain has many different causes. A physiotherapist can assess the cause of low back pain and physiotherapy is very a very effective form of treatment to help reduce symptoms and improve mobility. Most people with low back pain can return to their previous level of function.
Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease or ALS
- Neurological conditions are complex and can result in multiple challenges. Physiotherapy treatment can help address movement impairment, balance issues and pain resulting from neurological conditions. Treatment programs are based on individual needs.

Providing advice on safe return to sports or work after an injury

Physiotherapy treatment includes education on how to safely return to activities such as sports, work or hobbies. Work conditioning is also available if you are returning to work after an extended absence.
Treating dizziness or balance issues
Dizziness and balance issues can be a result of problems with the inner ear, neurological condition, or neck injury. Balance issues can also happen after a lower extremity injury. Vestibular rehabilitation helps to reduce or alleviate the symptoms of vestibular disorders. Physiotherapy treatment can also help to treat dizziness and balance issues related to neurological conditions and musculoskeletal injuries.
Management of concussion symptoms
Concussion can result in a variety of symptoms including pain, dizziness, impaired balance and poor tolerance of physical activity. Concussion rehabilitation works to address symptoms and systems affected following a concussion. Exercise and education are provided by trained physiotherapists to address individual concerns.
Treating pelvic conditions
Pelvic health addresses many different conditions. Urinary symptoms can include incontinence or urgency and frequent, difficult, or incomplete urination. Bowel Symptoms such as fecal incontinence, constipation, or difficult evacuation and urgent or uncontrollable defecation can be treated. Pelvic organ prolapse or pelvic pain are common problems that are often referred to a pelvic health physiotherapist. Prenatal and postpartum concerns can be addressed, and care provided before and after surgical or medical intervention.

Injuries can happen in many ways. The physiotherapists at Physiotherapy Alliance are here to help. Treatment is available through motor vehicle insurance and WSIB for approved claims.
Providing advice on injury prevention
Physiotherapy is not always about treating an injury. We can give advice or exercises to help prevent injury.
Helping you regain strength and mobility before or after surgery
There are many ways that physiotherapy can help prepare you for certain surgeries. For example, strengthening, stretching and mobilization can be helpful before knee or hip surgery to make sure you are moving as well as possible and that your muscles are stronger to speed up your recovery. After surgery your physiotherapist can help you to maximize your function and manage symptoms. Pelvic health physiotherapy can be of benefit before and after certain pelvic or low back surgeries and following caesarian delivery.
