Physiotherapy is deeply rooted in movement sciences and aims to help people improve their quality of life by promoting optimal movement, physical activity, and overall health and wellness. Physiotherapists help people manage acute and chronic conditions with therapeutic exercises, modalities, hands on therapy, and education. At Cross Works Physiotherapy, patients receive one on one, hands on manual therapy. Manual therapy includes passive stretching, soft tissue release techniques, joint mobilization and manipulation. Manual therapy is always complemented with specific exercise and education to keep you moving well. Physiotherapy can help people of all ages, functional levels, and at all stages of recovery.
CAMPT-Certified physiotherapists are Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT) that have completed extensive post-graduate education in the area of orthopaedics and have attained internationally-recognized qualifications in hands-on manipulative therapy. As a result, we can provide accurate and focused treatment based on research-guided techniques that speed up patient recovery. We educate patients about their condition and their individual needs, reducing the risk of relapse.
Exercise is a cornerstone of physiotherapy. Specialized exercise prescribed by a physiotherapist can range from simple mobility drills to increase range of motion to all out high intensity interval training (HIIT). Physiotherapists are movement experts that specialize in identifying appropriate exercise plans for each patient problem.
