Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) Injuries
At Pro Motion Physiotherapy, we provide treatment to people involved in motor vehicle accidents. We have treated people whose injuries have been fortunately mild and people whose injuries have been very serious. Our goal is to help you return to your pre-accident activities regarding work, home and recreation. We understand that there is a significant amount of paperwork for you to complete for your insurance company. Please let us know if we can be of assistance in explaining the forms to you and letting you know which ones we are responsible for. We are able to bill your insurance company for the services you receive and will ask you to speak to our manager, Linda Bronfman to arrange this. Please feel free to ask us any questions at any time regarding your treatment or how we can further assist you in your recovery process.
We treat many people who have been injured at work. We provide services to the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB). If you have been injured at work and your treatment is covered by WSIB then we are able to bill WSIB directly for your therapy. Our program is injury specific and includes an assessment of the area as well as appropriate treatment. This traditionally includes Physiotherapy (which includes injury specific exercises) but may also include acupuncture or massage therapy. Our program is available from 9:00 to 4:00, Monday to Friday.
Pro Motion Physiotherapy is proud to have an experienced Physiotherapist whose background is the care of patients with Arthritis. Jennifer Reist has completed the training program with the Arthritis Society and is responsible for the assessment and treatment of many of the patients that we see with Arthritis. Conditions commonly seen include Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Ankylosing Spondylitis and Psoriatic Arthritis. The assessment session is very detailed and includes appropriate treatment to decrease pain, increase mobility and strength, prevent injuries and return to maximum function.
Sports injuries occur to people during sports activities and while exercising. Each year, many people seek assistance from Physiotherapists for treatment. Although any part of your body can be injured, sports injuries commonly refer to injuries of the musculo-skeletal system which include muscles, bones and soft-tissues like cartilage. These injuries can be caused by accidents, weakness in muscles, structural abnormalities, poor posture while exercising and/or inadequate training methods.
In addition to gathering information about your injury and performing a full assessment, the Physiotherapist will also want to have information regarding your sport and exercise regime. Recommendations will be provided regarding treatment and return to activity. In addition, how to prevent injuries is also a large component of treatment at Pro Motion Physiotherapy. The goal of treatment is to help you recover from your injury and return to the activity you enjoy in a safe and timely manner.
Pre/Post Surgical Physiotherapy
Patients who have undergone surgery for a musculo-skeletal condition or injury are regularly referred to us for assessment and treatment. Conditions commonly seen by our Physiotherapists include: rotator cuff repairs, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repairs, arthroscopies, total knee replacements, hip replacements, Achilles tendon repairs, bunionectomies, back surgeries and open-reduction and internal fixations of different joints. We have also had experience in the assessment and treatment of limb-lengthening procedures (www.betzinstitute.com).
Treatment focuses on decreasing pain, improving mobility and strength as per surgical protocol and assisting you in your return to your usual activities.
