Our physiotherapists London, Ontario, treat primarily musculoskeletal disorders, or orthopaedic conditions that may have resulted from a sports/work/ motor vehicle injury. They are extensively trained in physical movement disorders of the body, and following a comprehensive history and physical examination, will provide a therapy plan to help patients recover more quickly by increasing their range of motion, strength and flexibility in the affected area(s). At Alevia Health and Wellness Centre in London, we treat a wide range of physical complaints from sports injuries of the ankles/knees/hips, to repetitive motion or overuse injuries such as rotator cuff and carpal tunnel syndromes.
In addition, they treat a number of post-surgical conditions that require management of pain, swelling and edema, as well as assessments for custom molded bracing and orthotic devices. A physiotherapist at Alevia in London, Ontario also has the unique benefit of working with other health care providers in an integrated setting. This helps enhance recovery by saving time through coordination of care if necessary (such as massage, acupuncture, shockwave or chiropractic).
Physiotherapy is a branch of health care that focuses on the preservation and restoration of movement and physical function. These impairments may result from disability, trauma/injury or diseases and can be assessed and treated by the utilization of therapeutic exercise, therapeutic stretching, and physiological therapeutic modalities like TENs, ultrasound and laser. Physiotherapists at Alevia in London, Ontario may also consider supportive devices such as bracing, and provide substantial guidance in home exercise, stretching and patient education/training.
