Physiotherapy in Midtown Toronto

helping a patient stretchAt Urban Health Group, we want you to embrace the good life without being held back or limited in any way. We offer physiotherapy to restore and maximize your physical strength, function, and range of motion by addressing any underlying issues.

Through evidence-based manual therapy, customized exercises, and mobilization, we help our patients restore movement and decrease pain. We’ll coach you on practical steps you can take to improve your health and prevent future problems so you’re feeling incredible, day after day.

Customized Soft Tissue Therapy

While chiropractic care restores the bones of the spine to proper alignment, Physiotherapy focuses on manual soft tissue work. The goal of care is to strengthen affected areas through therapeutic exercise and soft tissue work.

Our physiotherapists always start with an assessment including a medical history, examination, and diagnosis. After that, we’ll design a personalized plan of care for you, using whichever methods best serve your needs.

Natural Techniques That Work for You

All our services are natural and medicine free. We help your body heal itself from the inside out as you build an improved lifestyle you can sustain long term. We want to get to the root of what’s causing pain and restore you to health.

We may recommend manual work, pelvic floor therapy, or shockwave therapy to help tissues heal, depending on your unique situation. Each plan of care also includes detailed patient education. You’ll understand what caused issues in the first place and how to prevent them from happening again.

Conditions We See

We see a wide spectrum of issues related to pain or lack of movement. Many patients come in with problems caused by an inactive lifestyle, poor recovery from surgery, new injuries, or injuries that never healed right. Conditions we commonly see include

  • Back and neck pain
  • Bowel and bladder incontinence
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Joint injuries and pain
  • Ligament pain
  • Limited mobility from trauma, diseases, or surgery
  • Muscle injuries or tension
  • Pelvic floor issues in both men and women
  • Postpartum recovery
  • Repetitive motion and overuse injuries
  • Sprains and strains

If you’re suffering from any kind of ongoing swelling, joint pain, stiffness, or decreased physical function, we can help you rehabilitate that area and prevent the problem from coming back.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does treatment involve?

Every session is unique, but the physiotherapist learns about your medical history, assesses and diagnoses the condition. After assessment, treatment may include manual therapy, modalities, taping, corrective stretches and strengthening exercises to improve pain and function. A prescribed course of a home exercise program may be included.

How should I dress for my sessions?

Dress in comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that doesn’t restrict movement and allows access to the specific injury or pain site.

How long does a regular session last?

The initial assessment usually lasts between 45-60 minutes. Follow-up visits normally take between 20-30 minutes. Extended-time treatment sessions can be booked based on the therapist’s recommendation.

Is it possible to receive treatment on the first appointment?

Depending on the complexity and time required for the assessment, the physiotherapist may provide a treatment on the first appointment.

Will I need to see a doctor before receiving care?

Anyone can access physiotherapy services directly, without a physician referral. Some publicly funded Community Physiotherapy Clinics may require a physician’s referral. Some extended health care benefits may also require a medical doctor’s referral.

Will treatment hurt?

It depends on the person and their sensitivity level, but treatments are not meant to hurt! However, treatments can increase your pain or soreness. If there is an increase in your presenting symptoms after a session, it’s important to discuss with your physio, as modification to treatment can be done in most cases.

Can I bring someone with me?

Yes, you can always bring someone with you to your appointment.

When should I see a chiropractor or physiotherapist?

If you’re unable to do the things you used to do without pain because of an injury or chronic issue, we recommend you see a chiropractor or physiotherapist.

Individualized Attention

Quality health care cannot be mass produced. We won’t lump you together in group settings with other patients or make you wait as an assistant runs back and forth between three or four rooms. Our sessions are always private and personalized. You’ll have our full attention with one-on-one care to meet your specific needs.
