Approach to Treatment
At Fitness Physiotherapy your treatment is goal oriented. We prioritize your problem areas and determine the treatment or process that will maximize the response to one or several of your problem areas at the same time.
Your treatment and education is based on what is supported in the scientific literature. We treat what is causing your pain, not just the symptoms. This not only provides you with the knowledge to manage your symptoms, but to help prevent their re-occurrence. Your physiotherapist will work closely with your doctors and health other professionals to assist in maximum recovery or prevention.
The First Visit
The initial physiotherapy visit will take approximately 45 minutes. Subsequent visits may be booked for a half-hour or one hour time period. On your first visit you will need to bring with you your physicians referral if you have one, a list of any other health professionals that you may be consulting, a list of any medications you are taking, and a T-shirt and shorts if you prefer not to wear a clinic gown.
You will be asked to fill out two forms on your arrival concerning your personal information and present health status. The appointment begins with an interview about the history and nature of your injury. Your physiotherapists will then progress into the physical examination analyzing the effected body areas, the involved joints and muscles, and give you an understanding of your condition, how you may start to manage it, and a general guideline as to how many visits your treatment may take.
Physiotherapists: Lesa Campbell, Celeste Basson, Anne Dawson, Matei Dragne, Anastasia Meseman, Marina Pianosi.
Work one-on-one or in a class setting with a Fitness Physiotherapy Stott® Pilates trained Physiotherapist.
Rehab Pilates can be the perfect protocol for neuromuscular re-education, offering new pathways of movement to the injured client. Working together with your qualified Pilates instructor, you will explore the best path to improve motor learning.
Pilates at Fitness Physiotherapy integrates motor control, motor reprogramming, biomechanical counseling, proprioceptive and kinesthetic training required for dynamic stabilization.
Our goal is to restore muscle balance lost by poor posture, habitual adaptations and compensations due to injuries.
Pilates rehab instructors are problem solvers. Working with the client, the rehab Pilates instructor suggests options for more efficient training to achieve optimal movement patterns.
The result: the client works with less muscle/joint stress.
The Pilates environment may be the missing link in your health care program. Rehab Pilates should elicit improved awareness while training core stability, functional strength, coordination, flexibility, balance and effortless breathing. Core stability is the foundation of core strength. This improves athletic performance as well as rehabilitative conditioning.
