Activa Physiotherapy Ottawa offers Manual Therapy and Modern Electrotherapy and Modalities, including Shockwave Therapy. Shockwave Therapy accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue.
At Activa, physiotherapy treatment begins with extensive assessment, which includes your health history, evaluation of pain and movement patterns, strength, joint range of motion, your reflexes and sensation. The physiotherapy assessment includes measures of functional movement, gait analysis, posture and balance.
Based on the assessment, your physiotherapist establishes a diagnosis and works in partnership with you to develop your personalized treatment program to help you establish and achieve set goals. You will also be provided with video instruction to help you with your exercises at home.
We evaluate and guide you in performing therapeutic exercises between your appointments. Your progress will be monitored at follow-up visits and your treatment will be adjusted according to your progress. By combining principles of evidence-based practice, evaluative skills, clinical and professional judgment, we work closely with you and other health care professionals at Activa to ensure that your health goals are met.
