One-on-One Physiotherapy Care From Highly Experienced Physiotherapists

What is Physiotherapy?

 

Physiotherapy provides treatment to people suffering from several conditions including but not limited to cardiorespiratory, neurological, and musculoskeletal types. Physiotherapists are specialists who execute physiotherapy treatments by diagnosing and managing related conditions related to their area of expertise. These experts assist to improve body function, enhance performance, and reduce and ideally eliminate physical aches and pains for their patients. The process of physiotherapy always begins the patient’s journey by doing a thorough and comprehensive assessment and diagnosis. Next up is the manufacturing of a treatment plan whose goal it is to resolve any outstanding symptoms and restore body function. Conditions are closely monitored until they have been resolved, and then patients are properly educated and informed with tailored strategies for them to prevent similar conditions from returning, and given valuable advice to improve their overall health.

Why should you select  Downtown Health and Physiotherapy in Vancouver as your physiotherapy provider?

We have a deep passion to help our patients improve not only their bodies and health, but their lives in general as well. Our primary mandate is to provide the best experience possible through a seamless process that includes assessing, treating, booking (and rescheduling appointments when needed), billing, and in-taking and discharging patients. Our guarantee to you is that we will do everything possible when in our care to heal your body both short and long-term.

  • Our team is comprised of experienced and dedicated physiotherapists who have some of the highest accolades available in the field of physiotherapy
  • We are experienced clinical instructors at some of Vancouver’s top universities.
  • All treatments and plans are formulated using the most up to date physiotherapy research and information. When a cool, new fad presents itself in our industry, we do not roll this into our approach unless it’s backed by credible research that validates tangible and safe results.
  • Every year, thousands of Vancouver residents choose Downtown Health and Physiotherapy for their physiotherapy needs, and our patients and former patients are our largest source of advocates for our treatment services.
  • We proudly call some of Vancouver’s most respected and decorated Surgeons and Physicians our patients. This validates that what we are doing gets noticed and honoured by several of our city’s top doctors, and we couldn’t be happier about this fact.
  • We highly value each and every patient’s feedback and rating, and by surveying them, we get to learn how we can get even better at what we do. Constant improvement from our physiotherapists and staff is an on-going mission at our clinic.

The discovery of the root cause is a fine art that we take great pride in

All too often we hear that physiotherapy clinics are overly focused on symptoms of patients, when instead they should be looking at the root cause. For example, a case study such as tennis elbow can show pain initially in a patient’s neck area, and then be felt in a leg, but the origin of the pain can be from the back. With our relentless focus of figuring out the cause of the pain, we can resolve symptoms quicker, and then construct a long-term treatment plan for the patient to remain pain free.

 

How does physiotherapy actually work?

At Downtown Health and Physiotherapy in Vancouver, our approach is to closely examine the history of your specific problem, and then follow that up with a comprehensive physical evaluation which helps us learn more about your current condition, and how your problem has evolved over time. Once we feel comfortable with establishing and confirming your diagnosis, we will then recommend a targeted treatment plan that we feel will most effectively solve your problem.

No two patient’s conditions are the same, and every single patient that walks through our door has their condition treated in a unique and respectful way. We want to maximize our efforts as efficiently as possible, so the plan that we create for you is developed to specifically address the core cause of the problem. We provide detailed strategies and helpful tips to either control or ideally eliminate your corresponding symptoms, and build a successful treatment plan to ensure that the same problem doesn’t pop up again in the months and years down the road.

Our team of physiotherapists utilize all of the best tools and equipment available on today’s market, to maximize their efforts when it comes to your recovery. Treatments range in scope depending on the problem that needs to be solved, but can include ergonomics, acupuncture, bracing, a custom tailored exercise program, direct hands-on manual therapy, taping, and numerous other processes to help improve your health as quickly as possible.

Our dedication to you, is that we continuously evaluate and measure your progress, and consistently adapt your treatment to achieve the best results and outcomes, all within the shortest time frame possible. When you have completed your in-clinic treatment with us, you will be provided with everything you need to both stay healthy long-term, and prevent future injuries and damage to your body.
