Our Bloor Jane Physiotherapy team is experienced in treating many different injuries and painful orthopaedic conditions either in the acute phase or chronic. They are also experienced in explaining the underlying pathology that causes the pain. They tell you what went wrong!
Complaints of low back pain and sciatica are most often seen in clinical practice. Our physiotherapists, Amna, Micheal, and Lakshmi incorporate the McKenzie International Institute’s MTD assessment protocol to determine the cause of your low back pain and the extent of the pathology. They ask questions to get your feedback and then apply appropriate McKenzie treatments to progressively reduce your pain. They teach you how to manage your pain and be in control of it. They explain what to do at home and what not to do. Be assured, it works to help you recover fully. We give you insight into preventing another bout of low back pain.
Rotator cuff tendonitis is the second most common condition seen in a physiotherapy clinic. Here too, Amna, Micheal, and Lakshmi complete an assessment of the shoulder, neck, and shoulder blade to determine which muscles are triggering shoulder pain during movement. The treatment plan that follows usually includes a combination of pain-relieving modalities, manual mobilizing techniques, and progressive exercises in our gym, and can include massage with Sarah our RMT.
Cervical strain or whiplash injuries usually occur after a motor vehicle accident, typically a rear-ender. The whole team kicks in to treat these injuries. Elizabeth knows the auto insurance regulations and knows what forms need to be completed. The physios create a treatment plan and may call on Maria, the PTA, to apply pain-relieving modalities or Sarah to massage or some do craniosacral techniques to help relax the soft tissues.
Not limited to back, neck, or shoulder ailments, we assess and treat many conditions, including:
Temporomandibular joint pain (TMJ) or jaw pain and stiffness after lengthy dental work.
Patello-femoral syndrome, chondromalacia, or jogger’s knee may require McConnell taping.
Hip or knee osteoarthritis incorporating the GLA:D program of education and exercise classes.
Sacro-iliac joint sprain or piriformis syndrome of the low back and buttock that may cause sciatica.
Carpal tunnel syndrome or repetitive strain often resulting from work tasks, that could be on WSIB.
Plantar fasciitis or calcaneal spurs, giving rise to heel or foot pain when walking.
Post-fracture immobilization stiffness. Lengthy bracing causes stiffness in neighbouring joints.
Ankle sprains, sometimes with torn malleolar ligaments, foot sprains, or calf sprains.
