Manage & Eliminate Pain

With two decades of professional physiotherapy experience, our team has the experience and knowledge to help you manage symptoms from skeletal dysfunctions and injuries, moving you towards the ultimate goala pain-free life.

Recover From Surgery

Though modern medicine and surgery save lives every day, it often comes with muscle weakness, pain, reduced mobility, and low exercise tolerance. Recover from surgery with the experts at our Dundas physiotherapy clinic for faster mobility gains that won’t compromise your recovery.

Rehab Sports Injuries

From weekend warriors to elite athletes, hard training can both strengthen the body and prime you for injury. Get back to the sports you love more quickly and crush your next workout with a sports rehab and physical therapy program that recovers and rehabilitates the injured area’s muscles, joints, and ligaments.

Restore Function & Prevent Surgery

Repetitive movements from physical jobs and long hours spent sitting at a desk can distress our bodies. Setting up a “pre-habilitation” physiotherapy program now helps maximize your mobility before larger issues grow, preventing unnecessary pain and invasive surgery down the road. Much like dental cleaning or doctor checkups, our programs holistically manage your healththe best injury treatment is prevention.

Manage Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is often treated with medications, though this complex mechanism does not always respond well to medicine. Research proves that exercise can provide effective long-term relief in many cases, greatly helping those that seek alternative options. Our Dundas physio professionals can help you break the pain cycle with effective drug-free treatments.

FAQ

The healthcare industry is full of confusing terms and treatments. Get clarity on our Hamilton physiotherapist services with the most common questions we’re asked by our clients.

1What does the initial physiotherapy assessment involve?

Our initial assessment is a little more involved than your follow-up treatments as we get to know your health history and your musculoskeletal function. 

Here’s what we’ll go through together on Day 1:

  • A detailed health and injury history 
  • Function issues and limitations
  • Movement patterns, joint range of motion, and muscle strength
  • Imaging and X-ray reviews

Once we gather the information we need, we can get to work at our Dundas & Hamilton physio and rehab clinic, building a treatment plan based on your unique needs.

2What does a physiotherapy treatment involve?

Every program is individualized for our clients. Typically, our short-term program treatments range from a few days to weeks in length, with chronic and long-term treatments involve a longer timespan with less frequent visits. 

Your physiotherapist will walk you through a treatment plan at your initial assessment. 

We’ll create the treatment program that makes the most sense for you, including physiotherapy, manual therapy, shockwave therapy, laser physiotherapy, concussion rehab, post-operative rehab, or vestibular rehab. We’ll also walk through preventive care and exercise you can do to strengthen and maintain health and mobility while you’re not at the clinic. Though our therapies are incredibly effective, you’ll see the best results by practicing great techniques while at home, working, and enjoying your everyday life. 

3Do I need a referral for physiotherapy in Ontario?

No. You don’t need a doctor’s referral to receive physiotherapy in Ontario, as we are considered primary health care providers. If you’re planning to use insurance coverage to fund your physiotherapy treatments, check with your insurance agency before booking—some require a doctor’s referral for reimbursement.

4How much does physiotherapy cost?

The initial assessment typically ranges from $120-$200, as it involves an intensive exam in addition to a treatment session. One-hour sessions with direct treatment range from $95 to $150, depending on the treatment type.

Strength Is For Everyone

It’s a common misconception that training to get stronger is only for youths and athletes. Strength is an attribute that benefits all individuals in all walks of life. So why does the notion exist that as we age beyond our youth, we should simply abandon the pursuit of strength?
