Our Treatment Approach

Our approach to treatment at Physiotherapy Bloor West is founded on three important principles - TREAT, EDUCATE, PREVENT. Our immediate goal is to expertly and accurately diagnose your injury, reduce your level of pain, and prescribe a treatment plan enabling a full and long lasting recovery. During the treatment process, the patient will initially receive intensive individualised treatment for the injury and its symptoms, which will ignite a healing response from the body. Our rehabilitation team will additionally educate each patient on how to recognize early signs of reinjury, how to identify and eliminate lifestyle behaviours which may contribute to, or exacerbate the injury, and teach effective strategies to prevent any future injury and pain.  In combination, these tools and treatment approaches will contribute to a lasting recovery, with a maintenance program created and aimed to prevent a recurrence of the injury.
