Why Physical Therapy?

About Physical Therapy at HealthPro

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

Is Physical Therapy for Me?

Physical Therapists are experts on movement and function.  At HealthPro our Physical Therapists are skilled at assessing and managing a range of conditions including:

  • Back pain, arthritis and repetitive strain injury
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Myofascial Pain
  • Sports injuries/Sprains
  • Post surgery recovery
  • Nerve Pain
  • Mobility problems related to neurological disorders such as stroke, spinal cord injury or Parkinson’s disease
  • Neck and back pain and other joint injuries
  • Total Hip/Knee Replacement rehabilitation

The staff at HealthPro can also help you to prevent most of the above conditions by offering advice on posture, exercise, workplace and lifestyle habits.

At HealthPro Physical Therapy your Physical Therapists work as part of a team with you and sometimes other health care providers or sports coaches.  The success of your Physical Therapy program usually requires your co-operation outside of our Physical Therapy 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 Physical Therapy "homework" will greatly enhance the outcome of your Physical Therapy program and will help you to achieve your goals as quickly as possible.

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