Physiotherapists are dynamic healthcare professionals who will work with you to return you to your maximum level of function at work, sports, play and everyday life. We are university graduates of an accredited physiotherapy program and are governed by the College of Physiotherapists of British Columbia. In bringing physiotherapy to Prince George patients, we are able to treat many types of injuries, conditions and illnesses, as well as movement dysfunctions. These may be caused by congenital anomalies, various diseases, physical injuries, surgery, problems related to prolonged inactivity, ageing or psychological stresses. We can help. Physiotherapists are well-respected by physicians, who value our specialized knowledge and skills in treating conditions related to musculoskeletal systems.
At Physionorth Sports & Wellness, you don't need a doctor's referral. When you visit our clinic, a staff member will first do a consultation, assessing your injuries and taking down the history of the problem. Then we do an objective assessment so we can decide on a proper treatment program.
After explaining the anatomy of the injury, we can then instruct you in exercises to take care of the area. Treatments can include the use of acupuncture, modalities, icing, electric therapy and myofascial release to reduce the pain further. A kinesiology consultant is also available to provide functional restoration programs, and our facility is equipped with a special pain release machine called a TENS unit. Treatment may include education of the related anatomy and care of the condition, instruction in specific exercises, modalities for pain relief, taping, and manual techniques to ensure ideal joint and soft tissue mobility.
