Welcome to Royal Physiotherapy!
Whether you want to recover from an injury, reduce symptoms, improve a chronic problem, speed up your return to sport, increase your athletic performance, or simply reduce health risks, the physiotherapists at Royal Physiotherapy Clinic will be there to treat, motivate, and guide you towards your goals. Royal Physiotherapy is conveniently located in the PATH, under the business district in Toronto's downtown core. It is part of a larger medical clinic called the Royal Health Care Centre, which employs family physicians, physician specialists, a foot care specialist, an optometrist, a chiropractor, and a number of massage therapists. A pharmacy is also available on-site.
The sooner physiotherapy begins, the quicker the recovery. Physiotherapy helps to relieve your symptoms and resolve your injury as quickly as possible. From sports injuries to every day physical problems such as shoulder or back injuries, our physiotherapists can help. We believe that manual or "hands-on" therapy, be it a soft tissue stretch or a joint mobilization, in conjunction with a graduated exercise program, are both vital components of treatment. Continuous monitoring and exercise progressions will allow you to achieve above and beyond what you ever thought capable.
Our professionally trained and registered physiotherapists recognize that each patient has unique injuries and requires an individualized treatment plan. Our physiotherapists have advanced training in manual therapy and continually upgrade their skills to stay current with advances in medical research. The physiotherapists at Royal Physiotherapy understand the importance of communication among patients' health care providers, and keep each patient's family doctor up to date with their treatment and progress. We provide patient-centred, evidence-based care and focus on open communication within the health care team. Our primary focus is to restore function and improve your quality of life through caring, skilful and personalized applications of exemplary physiotherapy services for clients of all ages.
What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a health care profession that focuses on the treatment and prevention of physical injury and disease. Physiotherapists have completed a physiotherapy program at an accredited university, have been licensed by the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario and must maintain their clinical skills through post-graduate courses on an ongoing basis. At your first visit, a physiotherapist will perform an assessment to determine the cause of injury and design a personalized treatment plan to restore function. This treatment plan may include manual therapy techniques to mobilize the joints and soft tissues, massage therapy to release the myofascial tissue, electrotherapeutic modalities to control inflammation and pain, and individualized exercise prescriptions to stretch and strengthen musculoskeletal structures. There is also an education component to physiotherapy that will address posture, body mechanics, ergonomics, work habits, pathology, injury prevention and return to work or sport. Other techniques often employed by physiotherapists include acupuncture, orthotic prescription, and bracing or taping.
