Our Services

At Elora Physiotherapy we provide advanced neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapy. We treat all ages and conditions from head to toe. Our services include advanced manual therapy, individualized exercise prescription, neurofunctional acupuncture, paediatric physiotherapy, modalities and bracing and wellness products.

Advanced Manual Therapy

Research has proven that manual therapy can help to control your pain and improve your ability to perform functional activities. Advanced manual therapy involves specialized hands-on treatments applied by CAMPT-certified physiotherapists. Techniques such as mobilizations, soft-tissue release work and manipulations have demonstrable benefits for reducing muscle pain and tension, and for restoring normal joint movement.

Paedatric Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy can help you feel your best at every stage in your life. Paediatric physiotherapists specialize in optimizing function, movement and quality of life in children from birth through to 18 years of age. Treatment sessions with children are developed to be fun and activity based, with individualized one-on-one attention.

We provide services to children with a variety of diagnoses, both acute and chronic. These can include the following: plagiocephaly and/or torticollis, activity or growth related issues, paediatric orthopaedic conditions, fractures, post-surgical rehabilitation and growing pains.

Individualized Exercise Prescription

No two injuries are ever the same. This is why a thorough assessment will lead to a treatment plan and exercise program that is designed for your specific rehabilitation needs and goals. At Elora Physiotherapy, your physiotherapist will work with you to develop an exercise program which will help you to move and function in an optimal way, resulting in less chance of injury recurrence.

Modalities

Modalities are treatment tools that cause physiological changes in order to improve the body’s ability to heal. Most often, they are used to relieve pain, decrease swelling, improve circulation and to reduce muscle spasm. Types of modalities we use at Elora Physiotherapy include, ultrasound, interferential current therapy (IFC), combination therapy (ultrasound and IFC at the same time), neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), heat, and ice.

Neurofunctional Acupuncture

At Elora Physiotherapy we have extensive neurofunctional acupuncture training through the McMaster Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program. This specialized type of acupuncture targets needling specific acupuncture points in the body with very fine needles to modulate the nervous system. These spots are stimulated gently with electricity to promote the nervous system to release chemicals and hormones in the brain, spinal cord and muscles. This helps regulate the nervous system back to a balanced state that improves pain, muscle activation and circulation. The release of these chemicals and hormones in the body is a natural way to influence the body’s own internal regulating system and this helps restore biochemical balance, which promotes the body’s natural ability to heal and physical and emotional well-being.

Custom and off-the-shelf bracing and wellness products

We offer a comprehensive bracing and wellness products program. We have a wide range of off-the-shelf or prefabricated brace options available for all areas of the body, and also provide custom bracing with a physiotherapist who has ten years of custom bracing experience. We are well-versed with all custom knee brace options available and provide custom braces from Ossur, DonJoy and Breg. We are highly-skilled to work with you, and your doctor or surgeon, if a specific brace has been prescribed or recommended for you.
