What is PhysioTherapy in Ottawa ON?

Physiotherapy assists people to restore, maintain and maximize their strength, function, movement, and overall well-being in Ottawa ON.

Physiotherapists have in-depth knowledge of how the body works and specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess and treat symptoms of illness, injury and disability. Physiotherapy includes rehabilitation, as well as prevention of injury, and promotion of health and fitness. Physiotherapists often work in teams with other health professionals to help meet an individual's health care needs.

Physiotherapy can help you:

  • become stronger and more flexible
  • increase freedom of movement and mobility
  • reduce pain
  • stay active
  • prevent injury
  • resume normal activities after injury

Most of our physical therapies help to reduce pain or inflammation or help our treatments last longer. For example: TENS, Ultrasound, Vibration BMS, Percussion Massage and more.


TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. It is a method of pain relief. In TENS therapy, electrodes are placed on the skin, either directly over the painful area or more commonly, at key points along the nerve pathway. A small, battery-powered generator emits a milli-amp (one thousandth of an ampere) of electricity through lead wires to the electrodes. The sensation produced by the electrical stimulation appears to "override" the pain messages and may stimulate the body to produce its own natural morphine-like substance, which minimizes pain.

Therapeutic Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a form of deep heating in which sound waves penetrate into the soft tissues. It is especially useful in relieving acute pain and aids in tissue healing. The ultrasound device for use in applying therapeutic deep heat for selected medical conditions is a devise that applies to specific areas of body ultrasonic energy at a specific frequency and that is intended to generate deep heat within body tissues.

Percussion Massage

Percussive massage offers steady, comfortable pulsations that penetrate through all the muscle layers even the thickest muscles releasing tension and fatigue. The energy of the massage is sent efficiently and directly into the muscles you wish to massage. Great for neck, shoulders, back, arms and legs, the percussion massage can be an added therapy for many patients. You feel a percussion massage throughout your body, not just on the surface of your skin. This type of massage offers a deep tissue massage in a short period of time.
