Physiotherapy is a type of healthcare practice focused on the analysis and improvement of physical movement and function. Physiotherapists are highly skilled in treating movement and neuro-musculoskeletal disorders. Pain often accompanies a movement disorder, and physiotherapists can help correct the disorder and relieve the pain. Most importantly, physiotherapists look to improve a patient’s overall quality of life.
At Medical Rehabilitation & Foot Clinics, the goal of our physiotherapists in Oshawa and Bowmanville is to:
Reduce stress, tension and discomfort from injuries or chronic conditions.
Receive in-home physio to complement an existing at-home palliative care program.
Relieve or eliminate imbalance, pain or discomfort from various foot problems.

Treatment at our clinics is frequently through a combination of hands-on therapy, therapeutic exercise and other appropriate treatment modalities, such as laser, acupuncture or shockwave therapy. We also provide our patients with extensive education regarding their injuries and provide them with a maintenance program to prevent future injuries.

This leads to a host of benefits, including neovascularization ingrowth, cessation of chronic inflammation, stimulation of collagen and dissolution of calcium deposits. Stimulation of these parts of your body creates an optimal healing environment. As the injured area heals, functionality is restored and pain is relieved throughout your body.
