Rehabilitation Physiotherapy

Recovery from an accident requires commitment. Rehabilitation with physiotherapy through The Health Network in London, Ontario helps people to get back to full engagement with family members, work responsibilities and pleasurable activities after a car accident or workplace injury.

Our physiotherapists can design a custom rehabilitation physiotherapy program that can help patients with the process of recovery. Victims of car accidents and work injuries benefit from a complete rehabilitation plan that is tailored to their specific needs.

Acute Injury Physiotherapy

Injuries considered to be acute are within the early stages of the healing process. Patients experience significant discomfort, swelling and scarring that can reduce the range of motion and the enjoyment of the smallest of daily activities. It is important to properly address injuries and begin a plan to support the healing process for the best outcome.

Comprehensive Rehabilitation

Recovery programs encompass a physiotherapist that provides and instructs on:

  • Therapeutic exercise
  • Soft tissue mobilization
  • Traction
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Acupuncture
  • Electrical muscle stimulation
  • Neurological Rehabilitation

Electrical muscle stimulation helps mobilize and heal damaged tissue and nerves, realign and support the spine and structure to help reduce discomfort.

Work Readiness Program

The Work Readiness Program involves return to work consulting, job site coaching, and assessments of the work environment to assess and facilitate patients’ ability to carry on with their careers and responsibilities while recovering from an injury.

Chronic Pain Management

As a result of a car accident or a workplace injury, some patients will suffer from a constant level of pain. Our physiotherapists use exercise, alternative therapies and proper care to reduce the feelings of discomfort and the need for pain medication.

Orthotics

Proper care of feet and use of supportive footwear will help to reduce pressure, minimize swelling and create better alignment with the spine and core. On-site specialists can help instruct patients and provide essential footwear to enable a better gait and quality of life.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture uses fine needles placed at specific points along the body to assist with healing nerves, reducing pain, and reaching areas not able to be adequately addressed through physical manipulation.

Core & Spinal Stability Training

Specific exercises and equipment are used to create stronger musculoskeletal support that will provide patients with better balance and reduce further injury.
