There is an aching pain in your neck or back so you reach for the Tylenol or Advil and you feel better. It comes back the next day and you begin to wonder why? Did I sleep on it funny? Am I hunched over too much at my desk? You reach for more meds, a heat pack, a bag of frozen peas but after everything, the pain remains. It's probably time you saw a physiotherapist.
In fact, research has shown that seeing a physiotherapist shortly after an injury helps you to recover much faster than if you ignore the signs and symptoms.
At our clinic, we have some of the best physiotherapists in Markham, and each one can offer you a quick assessment to identify the root of the pain. Then, we provide a wide range of services from massage and acupuncture to a series of stretches and strength exercises to keep your body in balance and to get you back doing the things you love.

No, physiotherapy doesn't hurt, it will bring relief, and it's safe. You may feel discomfort when a trying to loosen a knot in a muscle. You will face challenges because you'll use parts of your body that are injured or suffering from chronic pain. Being monitored by a registered physiotherapist is the best way to rehab the sore areas. We know how to isolate and strengthen muscles and treat the exact area appropriately. We know how to avoid further injury and will watch you closely as you perform your exercises to make sure you're doing them correctly. Our concern isn't that you can lift 400 pounds. We want to watch you lift 5 pounds, ensure the proper technique, before you add more weight to avoid future injury. We'll help you stretch and release muscles that you may have never thought to be the culprit of your pain. Know that after a session with a physiotherapist, you may feel some discomfort but know we're helping you to #movebetter and get back to a normal pain-free life.
The simplest answer is it depends. Is it a recurring injury? Have you seen other physiotherapists for the same problems? Are you finding relief with your physiotherapy sessions?
If we can diagnose a problem, we can help you recover in about 6-8 sessions. It's important to note, however, depending on the severity of the injury or pain, it may take longer. We also could have you back to living a normal life after one session.
The most important thing to know is we are trained professionals. We have designations and a registered. We went to school for a long time and have been practicing our expertise all along the way. We attend clinics, we travel for education. We want you to feel better.
If we think the cause may be something outside of what we can do, we'll make sure to refer you to a specialist who can help you.
Assessing and isolating the problem, deep tissue massage, acupuncture to relieve tension points, ultrasound bringing heat and blood to heal the area, and exercise regimens.
Whole body massage to isolated areas - we do it all. Feeling tight after sitting at a desk all day? We'll work on your shoulders and back. Injured your knee in a hockey game? We'll work your quads and hamstrings.
Your pelvic health muscles can be damaged pre and post birth. They are essential muscles that, when not tended to, can cause hip and lower back pain. We are specialist in pelvic floor health.
Acupuncture can help increase your energy, lower your stress, and ease your pain, making it a sought after treatment. Physiotherapists can sometimes offer faster quicker relief through acupuncture than by muscle manipulation.
We'll create a training routine for you to follow to help provide relief. It may involve strengthening a specific set of muscles and stretching others. With our guidance, you'll avoid injury and recover faster.
