Physiotherapy

physiotherapist treating a patient

The Physiotherapists at Performax Health Group have a high commitment to our standard of care and believe that communication and collaboration between therapists and, quite often, your physician, will ensure the best possible chance for full recovery and a successful return to function.  Treatments typically last from 1-1 ½ hours. Home exercise regimes also play a big part of a patient’s recovery process and clients that follow these regimes almost always have faster recovery times.

We offer a state of the art ultrasound unit called Autosound TM. This machine allows for a six to seven-fold increase in efficiency in tissue healing and inflammatory control over traditional ultrasound and is a favorite among our “weekend warrior” and elite athlete population for “shutting down” acute injury.

We also are excited to introduce a new exercise software application from Physiotec TM. This application allows us to build you a custom exercise program with step by step instruction and video footage for each exercise. After we have built your program we then e-mail you the link and with one click you’re on your way! It’s that easy.

The following is a list of some of the most common conditions our physiotherapists treat:

  • Mechanical Pain of the lower back (lumbar), mid and upper back (thoracic) and neck (cervical)
  • Disc Herniation in the lumbar and cervical region with/without referred pain to legs or arm
  • Post surgical rehabilitation/Post fracture rehabilitation
  • Sprains (ligamentous tear or disruption) of neck, back, shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, ankle
  • Strains (muscular tear or disruption) of neck, back, shoulder, arm, hip, thigh, leg
  • Tendonitis (patellar, tennis or golfer’s elbow etc.)
  • Mal-alignment syndrome of the pelvis (arguably one of the most common causes of chronic low back pain)
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tension or Trigger Point Headache

Best of health and happiness to you.
