Physiotherapists seek to maximize the quality of life and movement potential through treatment and rehabilitation.
Physiotherapists (PT) seek to maximize the quality of life and movement potential through treatment and rehabilitation.
At ATC, our physiotherapists utilize traditional rehabilitation methods and combine them with advanced technological devices, to provide unique and customized treatment programs for all patients.
Gait & Balance Rehabilitation
In our Gait and Balance Rehabilitation sessions, a physiotherapist will work one on one with the client to assess and develop an individualized treatment to address functional goals related to mobility. Some of the goals that may be addressed during these sessions may include:
- Improving quality and efficiency of walking
- Improving safety and efficiency of transfers
- Improving ease and efficiency of bed mobility
- Improving strength and flexibility in different parts of your body
- Improving balance and confidence
Our Physiotherapists integrate neuro-developmental frameworks and functional exercise training to assess, analyze, and treat mobility impairments related to neurological conditions that may affect movement.
Assistive devices such as poles, canes and walkers are available to clients during the sessions.
Upper Extremity Rehabilitation
In our Upper Extremity Rehab Sessions, a physiotherapist or occupational therapist will work one-on-one with the client to assess and develop and individualized treatment to address functional goals related to the shoulder, arm, and the hand. Some of the goals that may be addressed during these sessions may include:
- Improve quality and efficiency of movements in the shoulder, arm, and the hand
- Improve functional use of the shoulder, arm, and the hand
- Improve alignment, strength, and flexibility in the shoulder, arm, and the hand
ATC offers access to a variety of innovative technologies that are designed to maximize walking ability and/or therapeutic devices which may be integrated to rehabilitation to maximize treatment benefits, these include:
- Alter-G™ is an anti-gravity treadmill that provides partial weight-bearing using air pressure. It can be used for gait training without excessive stress to the joints, as well as achieving cardiovascular fitness in a safe, falls free environment.
- Keeogo™/K-SRD™ is a wearable robotic device that can assist in certain functional movements including walking, sit to stand, and stairs management.
- Bioness™ is a programmed functional electrical stimulation device that stimulates appropriate nerves/muscles in the leg/arm (L300/H200) to achieve movements appropriate to functional tasks.
- Laser walk device can be attached to a walker to project laser line that can be used as a cue to overcome freezing experienced in Parkinson’s Disease, and initiate stepping.
