Common conditions we treat

Frozen shoulder

Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is characterized by pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint that significantly restricts a patient’s range of motion. Frozen shoulder develops gradually over time and may be caused by an inflammatory response that thickens the shoulder joint capsule, leading to the formation of adhesions and scar tissue. Physiotherapists treatment of frozen-shoulder focuses on pain reduction, restoring shoulder mobility, and improving overall function.

Hand and wrist pain

Hand, finger, and wrist pain might show up with tingling, numbness, and/or weakness. Often, these symptoms can be attributed to conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive strain injury (RSI), or tendinitis. Physiotherapist can assess the problem and create a tailored treatment plan that’s right for you.

Herniated Disc

Sometimes called a slipped disc, herniated disc occurs when the rubbery cushion (disc) between vertebrae in your spinal column bulges out between the bones. This can lead to severe and debilitating back pain or neck pain. Chiropractors are trained to assess herniated discs and treat the pain and discomfort associated with herniated discs. If you're experiencing discomfort due to a herniated disc, consider seeking relief through chiropractic care. 

Knee pain

Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is characterized by pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint that significantly restricts a patient’s range of motion. Frozen shoulder develops gradually over time and may be caused by an inflammatory response that thickens the shoulder joint capsule, leading to the formation of adhesions and scar tissue. Physiotherapists treatment of frozen-shoulder focuses on pain reduction, restoring shoulder mobility, and improving overall function.

Low back pain

Low back pain can have multiple causes, so a comprehensive assessment by a physiotherapist is crucial to identify the specific underlying factors. Muscle strain or sprain, herniated or bulging discs in the spine, compression of the sciatic nerve, osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis can all affect the joints in the lower back, leading to pain and stiffness. Physiotherapists address the underlying cause of low back pain to reduce pain, improve function, and prevent future episodes. 

Muscle sprains and strain

Muscle sprains and strains are common injuries that can occur from overstretching or the tearing of muscles or tendons during exercise. Physiotherapists play a crucial role in the assessment and treatment of muscle sprains and strains. Manual therapy, treatments to reduce pain and swelling, therapeutic exercise to improve function and customized rehab and functional training are all employed by physiotherapists as treatments for muscle sprains and strains.

Neck pain

Neck pain can be the result of muscle strain, ligament strains, herniated discs, poor posture or age related changes to the spine, discs or bones. Physiotherapists treat neck pain by focusing on reducing pain, improving mobility, and restoring normal function. It's important to consult with a physiotherapist for a proper assessment and individualized treatment plan based on the specific cause and severity of neck pain. 

Plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a common condition that causes pain and inflammation in the thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot, connecting the heel to the toes. Physiotherapists work with patients to alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with plantar fasciitis by addressing the underlying causes, reducing pain and inflammation, and promoting healing.

Post-surgery

Post-surgery complications can include symptoms like localized pain, limited mobility, numbness, and emotional issues. A qualified physiotherapist can assess your condition and develop a treatment plan to help with these symptoms and other post-surgery complications. If post-surgery complications arise, including pain, mobility issues, numbness, or emotional concerns, a qualified physiotherapist's assessment and personalized treatment plan can effectively address these challenges.

Rotator cuff injuries

Rotator cuff injuries can occur due to acute trauma, repetitive overhead movements, or gradual degeneration over time. Physiotherapist treatment plans aim to reduce pain, restore function, and improve shoulder stability. Depending on your unique diagnosis and assessment, your physiotherapist my use various pain management techniques, such as heat or cold therapy, ultrasound, or electrical stimulation, range of motion exercises to maintain mobility and  prevent stiffness, or strengthening exercises.

Sciatica

The sciatic nerve originates in the lower back, travels through the hip and buttocks, and runs down each leg. Sciatica is the term used to describe symptoms resulting from pressure on the nerve, causing pain in the lower back, hip, or buttock. Physiotherapy or chiropractic services can help alleviate sciatic pain.

Shoulder pain

Shoulder pain can be caused by bursitis, frozen shoulder, tendonitis, an injury, or overuse. In some cases, illness or infection can also cause pain or stiffness in the joint or soft tissue of the shoulder. A comprehensive treatment approach, including physiotherapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, and chiropractic services, can provide relief from shoulder pain and increase mobility.
