Manual Therapy Toronto

Manual therapy is an advanced specialty area of physical therapy that consists of a wide scope of therapeutic techniques. Manual therapy can include any one or all of the following:

  • Active release therapy

  • Massage

  • Trigger point therapy

  • Lymph drainage

  • Stretches

  • Soft tissue manipulation (with specific instruments)

  • Assisted active range of motion

  • Passive range of motion

Our Toronto physiotherapy clinic employs many of these examples of manual therapy and more. No patient’s physical therapy is complete without the integration of the other aspects of a complete physical therapy program, which includes exercise education and a custom home exercise program.

The result of manual therapy is to improve joint and soft tissue mobilization, increase range of motion, regain strength and restore the functionality of a specific area that was lost due to an accident or injury.

Some more familiar methods of hands-on physiotherapy include taping, bracing, custom orthotics. We also use state-of-the-art equipment to assist in the recovery process through manual therapy.

Our modalities include but are not limited to the following:

  • Ultrasound

  • Shockwave Therapy

  • Electrical stimulation

  • Heat and Cold Compress

  • Paraffin Wax

  • Laser therapy

Active Exercise Program

Physical therapy is the rehabilitation and restoration of strength, mobility and range of motion. While the first stages of recovery require manual therapy, the second stage is teaching your body how to function properly.

 

Our physiotherapists will walk you through a series of exercises that are specifically designed to restore your mobility and strength. As the exercises become easier, we gradually increase the difficulty to accelerate the learning curve.

 

As a patient of Global Health Physiotherapy Clinic, you have access to our facility with a complete suite of equipment for resistance and cardiovascular training. Our gym includes the following:

  • Free weights

  • Cable-driven lat pull-down and row machine

  • Balance training equipment

  • Resistance bands

  • Recumbent bicycle

  • Upper body ergometer

  • Spinal resistance rotator

Pain Control Program

The programs here at our Toronto physiotherapy clinic help manage chronic pain. We treat many different conditions including rheumatoid arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic headaches, Osteoarthritis and neuropathic pain caused by tissue damage. The Pain Control Program we put together will be a bend of treatments and techniques that result in less pain on an everyday basis.

We blend manual therapy with a strategic set of exercises and stretches that pave the way to a stronger healthier body. While it may seem counterintuitive to exercise because it is painful, for many people exercise is the key ingredient to reduce your pain since it’s what was lacking in the first place.

There’s no arguing the results of physical therapy for chronic pain. We help improve strength, mobility, flexibility, and endurance to create a stronger and healthier body.

Educational program

No physiotherapy program is complete without transferring total understanding to the patient. Our physiotherapists understand the importance of patient education because without the patient working with us, there is no change in behavioural patterns that may be affecting the health outcome.

The education we provide to you is intended to arm you with the knowledge of what it will take to get your body back to optimal health. Knowledge truly is power. Our program empowers all of our patients to make the right decisions with the right motivations behind them.

Custom Home Exercise Program

At Global Health Physiotherapy, you have the power to accelerate the speed at which you can make progress. We design a custom exercise program for you to do at home so you can achieve faster results at your own pace.

A physiotherapist can’t be with you 24 hours a day so we design a program you can do from the comfort of your home. When you do your homework, you’ll see faster results. It’s as simple as that.

We make sure you’re comfortable with the home exercise program while you’re in our facility. When you go home you can continue your recovery with the confidence that you’re doing the right things at the right time.
