Sports Injuries and Conditioning
More than one million Canadians are impacted by injuries while enjoying their favourite sports in the country’s diverse four seasons.
For many athletes, that is their first experience in receiving physiotherapy and seeing in benefits as they are helped to heal and get back to their sport of choice.
At Beamsville Physiotherapy, we treat athletes of all ages and levels of experience. We encourage people to live active lives, and that extends to our sponsorship of sports for youth in our community and the indoor track at the local arena which is utilized by people of all ages.
We are experienced and effective in assessing and determining effective treatments for sports injuries so you will not be sidelined for a whole season.
We also offer conditioning therapy and sports specific exercises to ensure that you stay strong and that your injuries do not reoccur.
In Ontario, sprains and strains caused by overexertion are the most common workplace injuries, with lower back injuries the most impacted part of the body.

Upper Extremity Program
Athletes and workers who use their hands and wrists repetitively are also at high risk for these types of injuries that are exemplified by pain, weakness, muscle aches, swelling, numbness or tingling. We have an Occupational Therapist who provides her expertise to our clinic as an independent service as a Certified Hand Therapist.
We will work with you to do a thorough assessment of the injury and then start a course of therapy to help you heal and recover your strength and function.
Our modern physiotherapists are trained in the ancient Chinese medicine therapy of acupuncture. It is effective on many occasions in relieving chronic pain conditions and neuromuscular disorders such as headaches, neck and back pain.
Through the repeated penetration of the skin using thin metallic needles, we help to correct the imbalances of flow at points close to the skin and relieve your pain and stiffness.
Like so many of our treatments, the delivery of acupuncture is a highly customized therapy that allows us to work one on one with you as an individual to assess your problem areas and then gently stimulate them with the needles.
Temporomandibular disorder (TMD), is a term that describes an entire group of disorders involving the temporomandibular joint or joints (TMJ). The TMJs' are the jaw joints. There is one on each side of your head just in front of your ear canals. TMJ disorder usually presents with pain, clicking sounds, discomfort in chewing and episodes of locking of the jaw.
Since physiotherapists treat muscle and joint problems, they are ideally suited to address a TMJ disorder. Our physiotherapist can help to insure the following: You are properly educated, that your treatment is conservative and cost-effective, and the goals are realistic.
Vestibular Rehabilitation Physiotherapy
Vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is a specialized form of physiotherapy prescribed to treat and improve the symptoms caused by vestibular disorders. It involves manual head manoeuvres and/or a progressive program of exercises designed to reduce vertigo and dizziness, visual issues, and/or imbalance and falls. Common signs/symptoms of vestibular conditions are; vertigo, general dizzziness, fatige/nausea, neck tightness/pain, headaches, vision issues (i.e., double vision, shaky vision with head movements, difficulty focusing) and brain fog.
Some types of vestibular problems that can be helped by VRT are; Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), Vestibular Neuritis, Meniere's Disease, and Unilateral Vestibular Hypofunction (UVH).

Following the assessment, an individualized treatment program will be provided to address your specific pelvic floor dysfunction.
At Beamsville Physiotherapy, we employ a hands-on technique called Manual Therapy to mobilize and manipulate your body as we work to decrease your pain and increase your range of motion. It is a highly effective method of adding flexibility to stiff joints and muscles.
These treatments, often coupled with prescribed exercises to do between visits so you can be a partner in your own recovery, allows you to regain your strength faster and get back to your normally active life as quickly as possible.
Post Surgical Rehabilitation
Science supports our conviction that physical therapy delivered both before and after surgery can hasten your complete rehabilitation.
We treat many clients to prepare them for surgery and to help them afterwards. Many of them have had joint replacements and are eager to get back to full mobility.
We work with your surgeon and physician to ensure that our physiotherapy is a cohesive part of your full recovery process.
Back and Neck Pain
Back pain can severely impact your quality of life and ability to care for yourself and others, and perform your work duties.
We work with clients who have both acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) back pain to ensure that they find relief and a return to their normal level of activity.
At the route of our physiotherapy is our detailed assessment to ensure that we know what is causing your pain. We want to fix the problem, not just cover the pain of the symptoms.
