    Our physiotherapy treatment methods

    Our award-winning team of registered physiotherapists will take all the time and consideration needed to listen and get a firm understanding of your symptoms. With access to a wide range of diagnostic tests, we’ll assess and identify the underlying cause of your pain and dysfunction. We believe in being completely transparent and keeping you informed throughout the process as we create and implement your custom treatment plan.

    After your first session, your physiotherapist will develop a treatment program that could involve techniques like manual manipulation and soft tissue release, while taking you through a series of exercises and stretches that you can perform at home.

    Our physiotherapists are constantly learning and updating their methods, using the most up-to-date techniques, tools and treatments. Physiotherapy machines play an important role in your treatment, but we don’t believe in just slapping a device on you and walking away. An Elysian physiotherapist’s full focus and attention is always on you. They continuously monitor and assess your body’s response, making sure our machines are giving you the maximum benefit of the treatment, so you can feel better, faster.

    Some of the possible treatments and machines they may prescribe for you in one of our Ottawa clinics include:

    • IFC (interferential current)
    • Therapeutic ultrasound
    • TENS machine (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation)
    • EMS machine (electrical muscle stimulation)
    • Low level laser therapy (LLLT) (also known as cold laser)

    Frequently asked physiotherapy questions

    Physiotherapy does not require a doctor’s referral or prescription, as physiotherapists are considered primary health care practitioners in Ontario. Some private insurance companies require a medical referral to ensure your coverage, so it’s best to check with your insurance provider if you’re unsure. But if you’re hurt or in pain, don’t wait — call us right away, or fill out our online form and we’ll contact you.

    Types of physiotherapy treatments we offer

    Sports injuries can be a reoccurring pain.

    Sports physiotherapy deals with the treatment, management and prevention of muscle, joint and skeletal issues resulting from sport and exercise. This doesn’t mean that you have to be an elite-level or professional athlete to sustain a sports injury. Those that can benefit from sports physiotherapy are people of all ages and at all levels of ability who lead an active lifestyle.

    Sports and exercise can place demands upon the body, and stresses on muscles, joints, and bones that can take us to the limit. Our physiotherapists help athletes of all levels recover from sporting injuries and provide education and resources to prevent injuries from reoccurring.

    Are you ready to get back in the game stronger than ever?
