Physiotherapy

Woman doing physical therapyAt The Clinic on Elm, our goal is to have several services available at one location to better meet your needs. Physiotherapy was added due to benefits such as increased flexibility, better range of motion and the alleviation of your symptoms. If you see one of our chiropractors and we believe you can benefit from physiotherapy, it can be a part of your plan with us or done on its own. For example, patients who have recently undergone a surgery can benefit from having physiotherapy immediately to start enhancing their mobility.

Your physiotherapy sessions at The Clinic on Elm are conducted one-on-one with our physiotherapist. Tim Vanderweide is a registered physiotherapist and member of the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario and the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.

FAQ

Can I have both physiotherapy and chiropractic?

Yes! If we think that you’ll benefit from a combination of our services, we’ll recommend that to you. You may benefit from chiropractic, physiotherapy, massage, or any combination of the three. It’s our goal to make sure you get back to health as quickly as possible.

Does your physiotherapist work with your chiropractors?

Yes. Our chiropractors and physiotherapists often collaborate on patient cases. That means you’ll get the benefit of both their experience and knowledge as to what will work best for you, and they’ll co-manage your case along the way.

I don’t think I’m flexible enough to do any exercises. Can physiotherapy still help me?

There’s a good chance, yes. Physiotherapy is always geared toward what you’re currently capable of. We’ll make small steps of progress so that we don’t risk further injury or setting back your recovery.

Will I need to buy any equipment?

No. All the equipment you need is at our office. We may recommend that you get something as a part of your home exercise routine. If we think it’s appropriate, we’ll discuss it with you.
