Injury rehabilitation through physiotherapy
Physiotherapy concentrates on regaining optimal body function. This type of therapy is performed by highly trained physiotherapists who use their clinical skills and knowledge to diagnose the cause of underlying pain and restore body movement and function. Sessions can include exercise programs, fall prevention and balance retraining, gait training and determining which types of prescription aids like as canes and walkers would be best suited to the patient. Bayshore can then help you explore government-funded assistance programs and obtain mobility aids.
During an initial session, our clients will go through comprehensive tests to come up with an accurate diagnosis and a treatment plan. The patient will attend regular physiotherapy sessions until they regain optimal function, which they are taught to maintain independently.
Another significant portion of Bayshore’s injury rehabilitation services involves occupational therapy. Occupational therapists help patients to overcome injuries that limit their ability to carry on with their daily activities. They help patients to re-learn how to carry out these activities and increase their mobility, active participation and independence.
Therapy begins with assessment of a patient’s physical, psycho-emotional, cognitive and functional status so that a comprehensive treatment program is created. It also involves assessment of the environment in which a patient lives, works and spends their free time. These areas are also assessed for safety, disability management and the use of devices and technologies that will allow a patient to functional optimally and independently. Patients are also educated on pain management, body mechanics, posture, energy conservation and other factors that affect their body function.
Bayshore Therapy and Rehab makes occupational therapy available for children within their schools to develop their gross, fine and visual motor co-ordination skills. We also determine which patients are eligible for support from federal and provincial programs and also extended health care and auto and workplace safety insurance.
