Physiotherapy promotes wellness, mobility and independent function. Physiotherapists have advanced understanding of how the body moves, what keeps it from moving well and how to restore mobility.

                        • Physical conditions such as arthritis and repetitive strain injury
                        • Sports injuries
                        • Post surgery recovery
                        • Physical complications of cancer and its treatment
                        • Mobility problems related to neurological disorders such as stroke, spinal cord injury or Parkinson’s disease
                        • Pre- and post-natal problems and other women’s health conditions
                        • Neck and back pain and other joint injuries
                        • Respiratory and cardiac conditions

Physiotherapists in Saint John can also help you to improve most of the above conditions by offering advice on posture, exercise, workplace and lifestyle habits.

At Atlantic Rehab Physiotherapy Clinic your Physiotherapists work as part of a team with you and sometimes other health care providers or sports coaches. The success of your physiotherapy program usually requires your co-operation outside of our Physiotherapy clinic. You will probably be required to participate in an exercise program or some modifications to your postural or lifestyle habits. Your dedication to your Physiotherapy “homework” will greatly enhance the outcome of your Physiotherapy program and will help you to achieve your goals as quickly as possible.

 

You can expect your Physiotherapist will follow the system below to ensure your time in Physiotherapy and at home is used effectively to reach your goals.

  • Assess your symptoms.
  • Diagnose your condition.
  • Plan your treatment.
  • Treat your condition.
  • Continually evaluate the effect of treatment on your condition and adjust the treatment plan if necessary.
  • Help you to manage your condition at home and to prevent re-occurrence of problems.
  • Communicate with any other health professionals involved with your condition, such as your doctor, to ensure a united approach to achieving your goals.

 

At Atlantic Rehab Physiotherapy Clinic our Physiotherapists keep up-to-date with the latest in medical and sports science research to help them select treatments that have been scientifically proven to help your condition. This is called “Evidence Based Practice”.
