Improving Your Health & Well-Being at Wellness House
For over 40 years, Wellness House has focused on helping our patients resume their lifelong pursuit of health, fitness, and well-being. Part of that patient-centric approach is providing excellent physiotherapy at our Ottawa, ON clinic. Our physiotherapy care is specialized for each patient and can range from helping an injured individual resume their normal activities to bringing an athlete back to their peak performance levels. Our physiotherapists often work with patients to improve their core strength to help decrease lower back pain or to restore mobility and function after surgery.

What Is Physiotherapy? What Can I Expect from Treatment?
Physiotherapy is a hands-on, holistic health care approach focused on restoring the body’s movement and function. It is primarily used to aid in a person’s recovery from an injury, chronic illness, or disability. At Wellness House, our physiotherapy care is customized to fit the needs of each patient. By examining the body as a whole to identify the root causes of your condition or injury, our practitioners can provide more effective, long-term treatment. Physiotherapy is as much about prevention as it is about rehabilitation. We want to not only pinpoint the underlying causes of your issues for better treatment, but we also want to prevent future issues from occurring for happier, healthier patients.
Physiotherapy can include personalized stretches, acupuncture, muscle strengthening, core stabilization exercises, balance and proprioceptive training, and specialized return to work or play movement training. Every physiotherapy session at Wellness House is unique as our practitioners get to know you better. It’s not uncommon for our team to make frequent adjustments to your treatment plan according to how your body responds to various treatment techniques or according to the goals we’ve set for you. The purpose of physiotherapy is to restore physical strength, functionality, and flexibility to help you accomplish everyday tasks and get you on the road to recovery and better health as quickly as possible.

What Are the Expected Benefits of Physiotherapy Care?
Patients of all ages may benefit from physiotherapy, especially those with long-term medical conditions or chronic pain. Expected benefits from physiotherapy care include reduced pain and inflammation, increased mobility, and faster recovery from injuries and illnesses without the use of invasive surgery or pain medication. Physiotherapy has also been known to help individuals improve their posture and balance to lower their risk for developing future medical conditions or injuries caused by aging.
Physiotherapy is often most effective when used in conjunction with acupuncture, exercise, and implementing healthy lifestyle changes. Physiotherapy can help you regain your confidence in yourself and live the independent, active lifestyle you want and deserve. Early treatment ensures a more successful outcome before conditions or injuries become more severe.
