What is physiotherapy care?

Physiotherapy has emerged from the science of movement. This hands-on approach helps prevent and treat injury and disease by emphasizing the promotion of mobility and function. Our physiotherapists use a holistic approach to enhance or restore function of multiple body systems, improving health, wellness and quality of life.

Arthritis Conditions, Muscle and Joint Pain/Weakness, Physical Discomfort

Our team of expert physiotherapists treat many arthritic conditions, especially of the knee and hip joints. Our scientifically sound treatments help relieve pain and improve your muscle strength. Everything we do is tailored to help you continue your active lifestyle.

Injuries, Pre and Post Surgical Conditions and Physical Recovery

Injuries are a part a life. That’s why we offer physical therapy techniques that help you recover. This includes shoulder conditions, especially rotator cuff injuries, capsulitis (frozen shoulder), acromioclavicular joint injuries and dislocation; knee, hip, wrist, elbow and ankle injuries, pain or weakness. If you have sustained an injury that requires surgery, physical therapy is a vital step that helps you fully recover movement and dexterity. We offer a variety of pre- and post-surgery physiotherapies to help your body heal correctly.

Sport Injuries – Return to Sport Strengthening

We are experienced in the treatment of a variety of sporting injuries and sprains, including injuries to your knees, shoulders, ankles and hips. When possible, our treatments help your body heal and regain its natural strength so you can get back on the field, ice or arena.

Braces, Splints and Other Aids

Our team can supply and fit most types of braces and splints for injuries of the knee, ankle, wrist, elbow and more. We also supply and fit walker boots. All of our aids help your body recover from an injury or minimize pain, such as from a sprained ankle.

Motor Vehicle Accident Treatment

If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident and require physiotherapy, we have the expertise to rehabilitate a wide range of motor vehicle accident injuries including common orthopaedic conditions such as whiplash, back strains, as well as accident-specific joint, muscle, ligament, tendon, spine and bone conditions. Our primary goal is to help you to recover quickly from your injuries and to assist you with the paperwork associated with car accidents. We will work with you to coordinate all of your benefits with your Insurance Company. We will also work collaboratively with your medical doctor, if you wish.

Physiotherapy for Workplace Injuries and Claims (WSIB)

It’s not uncommon for Ontario workers to seek physiotherapy treatment after suffering an injury while at work. Many patients are covered under the provincial Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) regulations. However to qualify for the coverage, the accident needs to be reported to your employer and a report filed as soon as possible. Of course, the employer will need to be registered with the WSIB.

At CURAVITA, we are a registered service provider for WSIB claims and will be able to provide you with information on how to access our many healthcare services. Our goal is to assist you and make the entire process as simple as can be.
