The goal of physiotherapy is to develop, maintain and/or restore maximum mobility and ease of function. At Grimsby Health & Wellness, our team seeks to achieve this for our patients who are suffering from one or more types of mobility impairment. This also includes providing services to patients whose mobility and function are threatened by aging, injury, disease or environmental factors. The basic presumption of physical therapy is that functional movement is central to human health.

What is Physiotherapy?

Manual therapy is a hands-on based form of physiotherapy that involves joint mobilization and, at times, manipulation (high force). This can be a very effective means of restoring joint mobility, decreasing soft tissue restriction/scar tissue and improving nerve function.

“All physiotherapists use specifically tailored exercise to treat pain and stiffness. In addition to exercise, Manipulative Physiotherapists are highly trained at using their hands to diagnose and treat restrictions in movement in the spine, arms and legs. Using gentle, hands-on techniques, we are able to help reduce muscle tightness, improve movement in the joints, reduce pain and improve function.”

Exercise prescription is a central feature of physiotherapy treatment. Here, a specific exercise program is determined based on assessment findings and testing to determine how to either lengthen or strengthen muscles in order to address any injury or impairment. Exercise programs are often modified and progressed, according to changes in physical function and goals.

Core stabilization is extremely important – as well as effective – for those suffering from any type of low back disorders or conditions (including disc herniation, amongst others). This form of exercise strengthens the muscles that support the individual vertebrae. It also reduces any loading of the intervertebral discs and reduces compensation and dysfunction of “mover” muscles (ie. muscle spasm), which can result from trying to support the spinal structures.

Currently, core stabilization group programming, combined with gentle yoga, is offered locally by Meghan McKay (PT) in 8-week cycles during both the fall and winter/spring.
