We work in remediation of impairments and disabilities and the promotion of mobility, functional ability, quality of life and movement potential through examination, evaluation, diagnosis and physical intervention. Physiotherapists are skilled in prevention, assessment and management of conditions affecting the musculoskeletal, circulatory, respiratory and nervous systems. We utilize several different therapies as well as continual training to ensure that our techniques are perfected and our clients' well-being is assured.
Manual Physical Therapy
Manual physical therapy is a form of physical therapy delivered with the hands as opposed to a device or machine. In manual therapy, practitioners use their hands to put pressure on muscle tissue and mobilize joints in an attempt to decrease pain caused by muscle spasms, muscle tension and joint dysfunction. At St. Andrews Physiotherapy, we believe that Manual Therapy is an important aspect of the overall treatment of any injury or chronic illness.
Almost any patients undergoing physical therapy can benefit from exercise therapy. It is a specific type of exercise tailored to rebuilding muscle and function over an extended period of time. Depending on the diagnosis, exercise can take the form of stretching or flexibility exercises, strengthening, nerve mobility exercises, pain-relieving exercises, and balance exercises. Ultimately, the goal for all of our patients at St. Andrews Physiotherapy is to reduce pain, regain full mobility and range of motion thus improving overall quality of life. We have a fully equipped gym facility for these types of therapies, as well as the ability to create exercise outlines so you can continue your recovery on a daily basis safely in between your sessions.
Post Surgical Therapy
Any type of surgery can be a traumatic for both the body and the mind. It can require significant time and energy to heal from any procedure. At St. Andrews Physiotherapy we understand that following a post-surgery rehabilitation protocol is essential for complete healing. Physiotherapy treatments are planned to help decrease stiffness and pain and return to full function. The ultimate goal is to return the patient to complete independence and to help them continue living a full and active lifestyle. We create customized post-surgical therapy for each individual and work to get you back to your old self in a timely manner.
