Physiotherapy Clinics Serving the People
of Halifax, Bedford and Dartmouth, and Timberlea
All of our clinics have physiotherapists with a university degree in physiotherapy, as well as various post-graduate education courses in manual therapy and specialty treatment areas. From our physio clinics in Halifax, Bedford, Timberlea and Dartmouth, we provide rehabilitation programs for patients using a wide variety of techniques and exercise methodologies, as well as treatments including massage therapy, acupuncture, custom orthotics, concussion management, dry needling and more.
Our physiotherapists are constantly updating their skills through continuing education courses in order to provide the best possible treatment for their clients. Our goal is to achieve patient independence through excellence in education, manual therapy and exercise.
Physiotherapists can help:
- prevent and treat sports injuries
- restore and increase range of motion of joints
- increase coordination
- design 'user-friendly' or ergonomically correct homes or workplaces
- educate clients in the use of devices such as canes, crutches and wheelchairs
- help injured individuals return to work successfully through 'work hardening' programs
- alleviate pain
Our physiotherapists often use manual therapy in their treatment plans. Manual therapy is a process of rehabilitation that uses a variety of “hands-on” treatments to restore normal function and mobility after disease or injury. Manual therapy techniques include joint manipulation and mobilization, soft tissue techniques, stretching, exercising and education.
