Embracing Wellness with Physiotherapy

A healing process through movement, exercise, and manual therapy.

Physiotherapy is a non-invasive discipline that helps individuals of all ages maintain their health, manage pain, and prevent disease. Our expert physiotherapists work closely with you to create a customized treatment plan that improves mobility, encourages physical activity, and enhances your overall well-being. In the tranquil setting of Porters Lake, NS, our clinic is your sanctuary for recovery and rejuvenation.

Physiotherapists work with clients of all ages and with a wide range of injuries & health conditions. Whether it’s pain management and rehabilitation from an acute injury like a sprained ankle or low back injury, and/or management of chronic conditions such as chronic regional pain syndrome, physiotherapy can help.

A physiotherapist will assess using detailed history-taking as well as specific physical tests and measures, such as flexibility or range of motion. He or she will then analyze the assessment findings and use clinical reasoning to establish a diagnosis. Together, you will explore your current abilities and functional needs so the physiotherapist can plan treatments that are consistent with your goals and general health status, and which incorporate approaches and techniques supported by the best evidence available.

Physiotherapy treatments can include the following:
-Personalized exercise programs designed to improve your strength, range of motion, and function.
-Joint mobilization and manipulation to reduce pain and stiffness, as well as soft tissue work.
-Hot and cold packs and various therapeutic modalities to relieve pain, reduce swelling, speed up the healing process, improve movement and function.
-Shockwave Therapy & Acupuncture.
-Pre-natal care, pelvic floor exercise & training.
-Athletic therapy, athletic taping.
-Functional activity and tolerance testing and training.
-Work and occupational re-training and return to work planning.
-Prescription, fabrication and application of assistive, adaptive, supportive and protective devices and equipment.
-Environmental changes, focusing on removing barriers to function.

We are a WCB-approved clinic with Worker's Compensation of Nova Scotia, and also assess/treat MVA injuries as well and work directly with MVA insurers for your convenience.

Health insurance providers cover all cost or a portion of the cost of Physiotherapy. Some extended health insurance plans may require a physician’s referral in order to reimburse you for physiotherapist service, but it’s not always necessary. Call your health insurance provider to confirm your level of coverage beforehand and to determine whether or not you require a physician referral for reimbursement.
