Physiotherapy

National Spine Care | Downtown Calgary Physiotherapy

As primary health care professionals, our Downtown Calgary Physiotherapy Team combines in-depth knowledge of how the body works with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability.

With your independence in mind, a physiotherapist’s goal is to restore, maintain and maximize your strength, function, movement and overall well-being.

National Spine Care | Downtown Calgary PhysiotherapyPhysiotherapists prescribe personalized therapeutic exercises and provide essential education about the body, what keeps it from moving well, how to restore mobility and independence, and how to avoid or prevent bodily harm.

The hands-on care physiotherapists provide varies from person to person with a focus on the individual needs and personal health and lifestyle goals of the client.

Your physiotherapist assessment may include measures of body functions, strength and weakness testing, and observed or instrumented analysis of gait, posture, balance, joint range of motion, and functional movement.

Your physiotherapist’s therapeutic treatment plan will involve education, exercise, and manual therapy components. Depending on your condition, this may include mobilization, manual therapy, work hardening, techniques and modalities to reduce pain, acupuncture, corrective techniques to improve heart and lung function and cardiac conditioning, demonstration of therapeutic exercise, and education about your condition, treatment plan and prognosis for getting better.

Physiotherapy treatments can include the following:

  • Exercise programs to improve mobility and strengthen muscles.
  • Joint manipulation and mobilisation to reduce pain and stiffness and increase range of movement.
  • Muscle re-education to improve control.
  • Hot and cold packs, and electro-therapy to relieve pain, reduce swelling and speed up healing process.
  • Clearance techniques and breathing exercises.
  • Airway
  • Assistance with use of aids, splints, crutches, walking sticks and wheelchairs.

By combining the principles of evidence-informed practice, evaluative skills, clinical and professional judgment, your physiotherapist will work closely with you, and often with other health care professionals, to ensure that your health goals are met.
