Active Living Physiotherapy, is a team of excellent, experienced physiotherapists, trained to treat Orthopaedic injuries, Neurological and Vestibular conditions.
Neurological conditions can have a devastating effect on you and your loved ones' lives. Neurological physiotherapy can help you recover, improve your quality of life, and realize your potential. Physiotherapy at varying intervals, even years after an injury or illness, improve function and independence. Physiotherapy can also help maintain your function if you have a progressive neurological condition, such as Parkinson's disease or multiple sclerosis.
Our therapists are all passionate, experienced and trained in treating diseases and injuries affecting the neurological system. Our open clinic design and specialized equipment are supportive to the functional training best suited to our neurological clientele.
Our therapists diagnose, manage, and treat disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. We are trained in the treatment of post-operative orthopaedic procedures, fractures, acute sport injuries, arthritis, sprains, strains, back and neck pain, spinal conditions and amputations.
Physiotherapists treat all stages of injury. A range of therapeutic exercise, neuromuscular reeducation, manual techniques and modalities are used, depending on the stage of healing.
Those who have suffered injury or disease affecting the muscles, bones, ligaments, or tendons, would benefit from physiotherapy.
Vestibular, Balance & Dizziness
People who experience dizziness, a loss of balance, visual disturbances and feelings of “fuzziness” may have a dysfunction in their vestibular system.
Some vestibular problems start for seemingly no reason, while some are brought on by a head injury. Our physiotherapists provide a thorough evaluation and develop an individualized treatment plan based on your symptoms.
Treatment usually includes increasing activities and exercise to help desensitize and retrain the brain's reactions. This has to be very controlled and individual in order to progress functionally without increasing symptoms for long periods of time. Vestibular rehabilitation requires considerable home therapy, as well as in-clinic therapy.
Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA)
A Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) can significantly change your life. Pain and injury from the accident, can make it difficult to participate in daily chores, work and even sleep.
When your car is struck, or strikes something, the car stops suddenly. Even in minor accidents, you keep moving forward until the seatbelt or airbag stops your body. After your body is halted, your muscles, internal organs and brain keep moving forward, creating a rebound force that pushes everything backward. When movement stops, there are forces and impact through your muscles and organs. Therefore, it is not surprising that significant pain and injury can occur. After a doctor has addressed major injuries, you may rest at ease that you are safe. However, pain and difficulty can still remain.
We understand injuries from Motor Vehicle Accidents. Many techniques can alleviate pain and loss of mobility. We work to decrease your muscle spasms, improve your movement, decrease your inflammation and unload damaged tissues. Gentle strengthening will also increase blood flow and improve healing. We will work with you to improve your overall function.
The practice of massage therapy is the assessment of the soft tissue and joints of the body and the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain by hands-on therapy to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function, or relieve pain. Research has shown that people who are stressed are more prone to health problems. Massage therapy can help the body by stretching the muscles, fascia, tendons, and ligaments.
