Registered Physiotherapists take a thorough history including quality, duration and intensity of symptoms. Symptoms may include pain, swelling, stiffness, weakness, radicular symptoms, or a functional impairment.
Our Registered Physiotherapists are primary health care providers in the province of Ontario and Ontarians do not require a referral by your Physician, unless otherwise required by private insurance groups. We investigate aggravating and alleviating factors and take objective measures to assess range of motion, strength, myotomes/dermatomes, reflexes, balance, posture, gait, and biomechanics.
We also have special movement tests for each relevant joint, which rule in and rule out certain conditions. Once a diagnosis is determined, a thorough treatment plan is developed. Our treatment plan can include joint mobilizations, ischemic compression, stretching, muscle stripping, therapeutic taping, trigger point release, traction, acupuncture, modalities (electrotherapy, ultrasound, paraffin wax) and a graded exercise routine.
We discuss goals with our patients and each treatment is designed to achieve these goals. Goals can include returning to simple activities of daily living such as sleeping, sitting, walking, stair negotiation, reaching or lifting to more complex activities such as operating heavy equipment at work, getting back to a recreational activity or a competitive sport.
At PhysioCure, our treatment philosophy is to empower patients with knowledge and to provide the necessary tools to decrease pain, improve range of motion, prevent re-injury and improve functional abilities in sport, work and at home.

A Custom Orthotic is designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They are made from precise imprints and work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes. Custom Orthotics reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet and body back into proper alignment. Do you have foot, knee, hip or back pain? Have you ever been told you have flat feet or high arches? Do have calluses on your feet? Do your shoes wear out on a particular side? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Custom Orthotics may be right for you
At PhysioCure, we are able to assess your concerns to design an orthotic to suit your individual needs. This starts with a biomechanical assessment of your foot, leg and gait and by obtaining a foam impression of the foot.
Off the shelf insoles or arch supports offer generic support for common conditions such as flat feet , but do you display rearfoot valgus, forefoot varus, heel whip while walk and adequate dorsiflexion? A qualified practioner can determine if your foot alignment may require you to have a rearfoot posting, met or heel pads, a medial or lateral flange or skive or other modifications based on your individual needs.
Custom orthotics are prescribed for your particular complaint, foot and body type and are custom made to correct your specific imbalance. Our Physiotherapists are trained to assess the structural alignment of your feet in standing and while walking.
