Pre and Post Surgery Rehabilitation and Care

In the event that you require surgery, a physiotherapist can play a key role in your rehabilitation and care.

At HealthOne, we understand that surgery may be an unsettling necessity for many people. We will provide you with intentional support before and after your procedure to make the experience as manageable as possible. 

Before surgery, you can work with a physiotherapist preventatively to get your body in optimal shape. Improving your strength and flexibility may improve the outcome of your procedure and can even reduce your recovery time. A physiotherapist can also discuss what post-operative care will look like, such as how to navigate different areas in your home or what exercises will support your recovery best. After surgery, they can evaluate your physical abilities and determine the best treatment plan to help you heal. If you have specific goals you wish to return to, such as playing a competitive sport, they will factor this in and help you work towards achieving them safely. You can count on our team of experienced physiotherapists to oversee your pre and post surgical rehabilitation with the utmost care.

Balance Related Disorders (Vestibular Rehabilitation)

Balance related disorders can be disorienting and challenging to deal with. The main cause of these is typically due to an issue in the vestibular system, which is a sensory system in the body comprised of the inner ear, nerves, and cochlea (located in the brain). The brain combines information from the vestibular system with your vision, muscles, and joints to maintain balance. When an imbalance arises, it can result in a condition that requires vestibular rehabilitation from an experienced Rehab professional.

At HealthOne, our physiotherapists are skilled in treating these conditions. Dizziness, vertigo, and concussions are some of the most common, and inner ear problems can also persist due to infections, brain complications, or medications. We understand how severe of an impact this can have on your daily living, which is why we care deeply about understanding the root cause of your condition. Many vestibular conditions cause secondary symptoms that can interfere with your life and your sense of wellbeing. Our physiotherapists will use their expertise and knowledge to improve your condition and help you get back to an inspired life with improved levels of balance. We aspire to be part of your healthcare team long-term and encourage you to visit us if you require further vestibular support after your initial visits.

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that is often caused by sports, recreational activities or motor vehicle accidents. No matter how severe a concussion is, it can significantly interfere with your daily life by negatively affecting your vision, balance, cognitive function, moods, ability to exercise, and more.

Rehabilitation (MVA, Workplace Injuries, Slip and Fall)

(Services offered at our North York Location)

Motor vehicle accidents, workplace injuries, and slip and fall injuries are serious conditions. In most cases, the patient needs to seek medical attention and rehabilitative care quickly after the incident takes place. At HealthOne Rehab, we treat injured patients quickly and with the greatest attention to detail. Our physiotherapists can provide the proper attention and care to help you recover the safest way possible. 

A motor vehicle accident (MVA) is when a car gets in a collision with another car, moving vehicle, or person. In most cases, injury treatment is paid for by an auto-insurer. If you suffer from an MVA, our physiotherapy team will take a reactive approach and determine the best next steps for your recovery. Many people also experience injuries in the workplace, and in these cases, physiotherapy treatment is covered by the Workplace Safety Insurance Board (WSIB). Rehabilitation is an important first step in the event of a workplace injury because it can lead to quicker healing and better recovery. Similarly, it’s common for people to experience slip and fall injuries due to unsafe conditions. Whether it results in a minor or major injury, seeking medical attention is of utmost importance to avoid the injury from getting worse. 

If you suffered from an MVA, workplace accident, or slip and fall injury, our physiotherapists have the knowledge and skills to promote your healing and recovery.

Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is a form of treatment where a practitioner uses their hands to assess and treat musculoskeletal injuries. There are three main types of manual therapy performed by our physiotherapists at HealthOne: joint mobilization, joint manipulation, and massage.  

Joint mobilization is performed with the goal of reducing pain and improving the range of motion on a joint. Your physiotherapist will apply pressure using their hands in a sustained or oscillating manner on the affected body part to achieve this. 

Joint manipulation is performed to treat musculoskeletal injuries. Your physiotherapist will apply a high-velocity force using their hands to create a space in the joint, which is often accompanied by an audible release of gas from the treatment area.  

Massage techniques are performed with the goal of reducing pain, relieving knots of tissue, improving tissue elasticity, and improving mobility. Physiotherapists use a wide range of massage techniques to apply deep and effective pressure, ultimately achieving the desired outcome on the muscles, tendons, or ligaments. Whether your injury is due to a sports injury or poor posture from working at home, manual therapy can be an effective solution as part of your physiotherapy treatment plan.  

Conditions and Symptoms  

  • – Neck pain (muscle spasm, disc herniation) 
  • – Lower back pain (disc herniation, facet joint restriction, spinal stenosis) 
  • – Thoracic spine pain (disc herniation, rib restriction) 
  • – Migraines/headaches 
  • – Fibromyalgia 
  • – Temporal mandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction 
  • – Shoulder pain (impingement syndrome, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff injury) 
  • – Hip pain (hip bursitis, post-surgical hip replacement, myofascial hip pain, hip impingement) 
  • – Knee pain (iliotibial band syndrome, patellofemoral dysfunction, post-surgical knee replacement) 
  • – Ankle pain (sprains/strains, arthritis)

Muscle (Active) Release Therapy

Scar tissue is a type of tissue that can develop in the muscles, tendons, ligaments or nerves. It often develops due to an injury or shows up over time from repetitive use and stress on the body. Scar tissue can cause feelings of stiffness, a lack of mobility, and pain in the body. Our physiotherapists can use muscle (active) release therapy as an effective way to treat this. There are over 500 treatment protocols for muscle (active) release therapy, and each can provide targeted relief of the uncomfortable symptoms you may be experiencing. Our team is highly skilled in understanding how the human body functions and will use the most accurate protocols for your unique case. 

During muscle (active) release therapy, your physiotherapist will inflict a specific amount of force using their hands while getting you to move the injured area of the body. This helps to break down the adhesion and restore function and mobility at the site of the injury. Scar tissue can greatly prohibit you from moving as you normally would, and many patients find significant relief after muscle (active) release therapy. You will be able to move more easily and will experience less tension and pain. In addition to muscle (active) release therapy, your physiotherapist may recommend additional exercises to enhance your mobility and lead to a quicker recovery.  

Conditions and Symptoms 

  • – Tension headaches 
  • – Neck (thoracic outlet syndrome, whiplash, headaches/migraines, spinal stenosis) 
  • – Shoulder (impingement syndrome, rotator cuff injury, biceps tendonitis, separation)  
  • – Elbow (tennis or golfer’s elbow) 
  • – Hand and wrist (carpel tunnel syndrome, trigger finger) 
  • – Back (disc herniation, sciatica, mechanical back pain, degenerative disc disease, SI joint dysfunction), low back pain 
  • – Hip (tightness, piriformis syndrome, hamstring tendinopathy, hip osteoarthritis, labral tears) 
  • – Knee (ITB syndrome, patella femoral pain syndrome, meniscus tear, knee osteoarthritis) 
  • – Ankle (ankle sprain, Achilles tendonitis, shin splints) 
  • – Foot (bunions, Morton’s neuroma, plantar fasciitis)

Active (Exercise based) Therapy

At HealthOne, we believe our patients should be active participants in their healing journey. As such, we believe exercise should always play a role in your healthy lifestyle and recovery process regardless of what situation you’re in. Whether you’re recovering from surgery or overcoming a sports injury, there are structured ways to incorporate movement that will ultimately help you reach your goals faster and speed up your recovery process. 

Our physiotherapists have extensive experience recommending active therapy to patients of all ages and activity levels. We use our knowledge in strength and conditioning, sports medicine, and rehabilitative care to design the perfect exercise program for your needs. It’s important for you to regain strength during the recovery process so you can gradually and safely get back to work, play, and daily life.

Acupuncture & Dry Needling

Acupuncture can play an important role in your treatment approach by providing targeted relief and healing to the source of your injury. During acupuncture at HealthOne, our physiotherapists use small, sterile, one-time-use needles to stimulate the healing process within your nerves and muscles. It is a proven method of reducing pain because it relaxes the muscles, resulting in reduced pain in the nervous system. Acupuncture also helps to reduce inflammation and stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal. In addition to traditional medical acupuncture, we offer a form of acupuncture called dry needling, also known as IMS (intramuscular stimulation). This approach involves inserting one single needle repeatedly into the trigger point (or knot) of a muscle. Dry needling is typically performed in a few minutes and can be a useful way to address chronic pain.  

We also offer additional modes including neuromuscular acupuncture and electro-acupuncture, so you can feel confident that our team will recommend the best treatment type for your unique case. Our physiotherapists are skilled in providing these services and have completed additional training in acupuncture.  

Conditions and Symptoms 

  • – Acute or chronic pain 
  • – Muscle spasms, aches, tension and trigger points 
  • – Inflammatory impairments (tendonitis, bursitis, fasciitis, and other “-itis” conditions) 
  • – Headaches

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy is an effective, non-surgical treatment modality that uses radial pressure waves to target injured tissue in the body. It is often used to treat conditions with severe pain such as sports injuries, where accelerated recovery and rapid pain relief are high priorities for the patient. There are many benefits of shockwave therapy including preventing and reducing pain, reducing inflammation, stimulating high-quality blood flow, and reducing muscle spasms. Shockwave therapy can also be used to speed up the healing process by creating healthier tissues and facilitating the body’s natural repair process again.  

At HealthOne, we use the Storz Shockwave System which completes treatments in approximately 4-6 minutes. Patients can experience a significant reduction in pain in as little as 1-3 months from their treatment time. Your physiotherapist will evaluate your unique case and determine if shockwave therapy may be a suitable treatment option for you.

  • – Plantar fasciitis 
  • – Heel spurs/pain

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a non-invasive method used to stimulate the healing of injured tissues. It uses the power of red and infrared lights to target the injured cells and facilitate the production of ATP, a molecule that acts as a source of energy for the muscles. As a result, patients who get laser therapy can benefit from less accumulation of scar tissue and a quicker recovery process. 

At HealthOne, we use a class IV laser which is the most effective type for targeting and delivering light. It also penetrates more deeply to treat stubborn tissues more effectively. Your physiotherapist will indicate if laser therapy might be a suitable option for treating your specific case.  

Conditions and Symptoms 

  • – Osteoarthritis 
  • – Sprains 
  • – Strains 
  • – Myofascial pain syndromes 
  • – Post-surgical pain 
  • – Several other acute and chronic conditions

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy is a proven treatment for speeding up the healing process of injured tissues. It can improve the quality of tissue repair that takes place in the body, resulting in a better and more reliable recovery. Ultrasound involves the targeted use of high-frequency sound waves, which are believed to show benefits including greater levels of blood flow to the treated area and greater production of collagen. Together, these encourage quicker healing and faster recovery. 

Based on your unique needs, your physiotherapist will determine if ultrasound therapy could be an effective part of your treatment plan. We use state of the art equipment to provide you with a comfortable, modern experience.  

Conditions and Symptoms 

  • – Bursitis 
  • – Tendonitis 
  • – Muscle strains and tears 
  • – Osteoarthritis 
  • – Ligament and tendon injuries

Interferential Current

Interferential current therapy is a treatment that transmits small electrical impulses through your skin. It is an effective way to reduce pain and encourage the body to heal, so much so that for many patients it can override the need for medication. During interferential current therapy, your physiotherapist will attach electrodes to the skin of your injured body part. The electrical impulses stimulate the tissue and nerves without causing any pain during treatment. The frequencies sent out by the interferential current device stimulate your endorphins, which act as natural pain relievers in the body. Your physiotherapist can determine if interferential current therapy would be a suitable option to help minimize your pain, decrease your swelling and inflammation, and help you recover.  

Conditions and Symptoms 

  • – Body and joint pain 
  • – Stiff joints 
  • – Edema 
  • – Inflammation 
  • – Pre and post orthopedic surgery
