Want To KEEP PLAYING? AESM Can Help!

Toronto Physiotherapy Treatments

Our Toronto physiotherapy treatments at AESM will help to get back to your regular routine. Regular physical activity is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. The health benefits are varied and numerous – from strengthening muscle and bones, to reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes.

The mental benefits are just as important as the physical benefits. Not only does physical activity keep you in youthful physical shape, but it also keeps you young at heart.

That is why we’re passionate about our work: it’s our mission to keep you playing! We dedicate ourselves to optimizing your mobility and health so you can enjoy a higher quality of life and get back to doing what you love.

Unfortunately, there will still be times when life throws you a curve ball. We are all at risk of being taken down by unseen danger. It could be a slip on the ice, a collision on the field, or simply repetitive stress. As if the pain of the injury wasn’t bad enough, it also impairs your ability to play and exercise the way you want to. That is where our physiotherapy Toronto team comes in. Whenever injury strikes, our team of expert physiotherapists and sports medicine staff is here to help you recover.

Our care doesn’t stop as soon as the initial injury is healed. Following any injury recovery, the threat of re-injury looms large. In cases of ACL reconstruction, you are 15 times more likely to suffer a second ACL injury than someone with no previous damage. To protect against future damage and re-injury, we will work with you to build on your core strengths and provide all available options. Our guidance will teach you how to spot hazards before they become serious problems.

Physiotherapy is a cornerstone of our multi-faceted approach to keeping you in optimal physical condition. Here at AESM, we understand that one-size fits all treatment is frustrating to deal with, dehumanizing, and above all, it is less effective. This is why we put extra effort into making sure that your physiotherapy treatment plan is tailored to suit your own personal needs and goals.

Our Toronto physiotherapy treatments provided by dedicated and highly trained team of therapists and medical practitioners will assist you to:

  • Recover from injury For injuries of an acute nature such as joint, skeletal or muscular injuries, we will find the most appropriate treatment.
  • Enhance movement Injury limits your movement. Our staff will help you to regain the range of motion you had prior to being injured.
  • Rehabilitate Even if an injury heals, that does not mean you can get back to your favorite activities. Our therapists will help your body to rehabilitate fully so it can go back to normal.
  • Avoid repeat injury We will help you to avoid repeat injuries through a combination of therapy, instruction, and training.
  • Have a stronger and more flexible body Physical strength and flexibility are key to preventing injury.
  • Help attain your fitness goals Whatever fitness goals you set for yourself become ours as well. Our wish is to see you return to your peak condition so you can play again!

Depending on your particular needs we have various treatments we can use for your recovery:

  • Massage therapy Massage can be an effective treatment for joint and tissue pains. Misaligned joints can also be treated this way.
  • Remedial exercises You may be asked by your physiotherapist to undertake remedial exercises. These are designed to strengthen the affected muscles and restore mobility functions. It will also help prevent or at least reduce the chance of repeat injuries.
  • Prescription Braces Wearing special braces like a back brace or knee brace can help provide protection and support for vulnerable areas.
  • Theromotherapy/Cryotherapy Applying thermotherapy (hot packs) or cryotherapy (cold packs) can reduce the pain and inflammation associated with your injury and hasten recovery.
  • Prevention planning Once you are ready to resume training we can help you reduce the risk of re-injury in your activities.
  • Electrotheraputic or Acupuncture These are additional forms of therapy that may be used to aid in treatment and recovery.

Once we have arrived at a diagnosis and assess your personal requirements, we’ll design a treatment plan that brings together the right combination of treatments for you. In some cases, physiotherapy will be sufficient on its own. However, you may also wish to supplement your physiotherapy with one of the other therapies that we offer.

Both of our Toronto physiotherapy offices are staffed with expert therapists who will work together to ensure a coordinated and effective treatment plan.

Just a few of the many other treatments available are:

  • Chiropractic treatment Chiropractic care helps restore function and reduce pain from misaligned joints. Our chiropractors are also trained in AESM Active Release Technique® – a patented therapy that reduces scar tissue after an injury.
  • Orthopaedic assessments Our highly skilled orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Aaron Nauth, specializes in the hip, knee, and shoulder. We can assess your injuries and trauma to determine if you are a candidate for orthopaedic surgery in addition to your physiotherapy.
  • Acupuncture All of our chiropractors and many of our physiotherapists are also trained and certified in acupuncture, which means that you can receive treatment directly from the personal therapist who knows your case the most. Acupuncture can reduce pain and improve nerve function and muscle activation.
  • Custom Foot Orthotics Foot fatigue can present a serious impediment to good physical activity. Well-fit foot orthotics can help with problems of the foot as well as lower back pain.
  • Sonocur Shockwave Therapy This new treatment option uses high-powered sound waves to break down scar tissue and encourage new blood vessels. It is an effective treatment for several forms of tendonitis.

We are confident that the best physiotherapy Toronto has to offer can be found here at AESM. Our two locations are ready and waiting to meet you and get you on the track to recovery. One is conveniently located within the heart of the Financial District at the Standard Life Building on 121 King Street West, Toronto. This location is accessible via TTC or car.
