The Physiotherapy III Approach

When you come to one of our clinics in Owen Sound or Port Elgin, our physiotherapists follow a specific process to identify and diagnose the right treatment for you. This is the Physiotherapy III approach, which consists of:

  • A comprehensive assessment of your injury, including detailed analysis of mechanical problems (muscle/joint) which may have led to the injury
  • Developing a personalized treatment program directed toward returning you to work, sports, and other activities
  • Returning mobility and function after surgery (post-operative rehabilitation)
  • Treatments provided by experienced registered physiotherapists, registered kinesiologists, exercise therapists and physiotherapy assistants

Make sure that your healing and recovery process is managed effectively. Contact Physiotherapy III today.

Treatments

Recover faster with us! Your physiotherapy treatment may include one or all of these available treatments:

Manual Therapy

Manual therapy includes skilled hands-on treatment techniques meant to normalize soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia) and restore normal joint movement. The four most notable forms of manual therapy are manipulation, mobilization, assisted stretching and massage.


These treatment techniques are used for the purpose of modulating pain, increasing range of motion, reducing or eliminating soft tissue inflammation, improving tissue repair, extensibility, and/or stability, facilitating movement, and ultimately optimizing function.


Exercise Therapy

Specific stretching, strengthening, and stabilization exercises are a critical part of the rehabilitation process. Used together with manual therapy to relieve symptoms and improve function. This is where your physiotherapist or kinesiologist uses an exercise prescription specifically to improve performance in athletic competition and daily life. Strength coaches also help athletes with injury prevention and proper mechanics within their sports performances.


Acupuncture Dry Needling

Acupuncture is a process of inserting thin needles at specific points to encourage natural healing, reduce or relieve pain, reduce inflammation and improve the function of the body. Acupuncture is safe and effective and is often successfully used as an alternative to medications and is frequently combined with other treatments. It can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with manual therapy or physical therapy practices.


Sports Therapy
Physiotherapy for everyone from the recreational to competitive athlete. This is involves a comprehensive analysis of your injury and sport-focused progressive treatment techniques, including manual therapy, electrical modalities, taping, cupping, acupuncture and exercise. We understand the particular needs of athletes and are experienced in providing assistance to return you to all types of sports.
