Benefits of Physiotherapy

How Can Physiotherapy Help You Excel?

Reduce Pain

Alleviate Your Chronic Pain Naturally

Physiotherapy techniques can relieve or eliminate your chronic pain naturally, reducing your need for pain-killers or opioids. Our physiotherapists use therapeutic exercises and manual therapy techniques, such as joint and soft tissue mobilization. We may also use physio treatments, such as ultrasound, taping, acupuncture, or electrical stimulation to reduce inflammation and minimize discomfort.

I walked into Priya's office bent double, virtually unable to walk, and in excruciating, unrelenting pain. 3 weeks and 9 physio sessions later I was walking normally, without pain!

I injured a nerve over a year ago while skiing. I went to multiple physicians, neurologists and therapists trying to find relief from the incredible nerve pain, fasciculations and weakness of my pelvic floor. Priya at Excel was amazing. She takes the time to listen to you and tailors a plan unique to you. She has an incredible knowledge of the pelvic floor. I felt relief from the very first treatment and things only got better from there. The exercises that she gives you are very effective. In a matter of weeks, I was up to running seven kilometres with no pain and able to lift my grandchildren with no painful flares. My energy level is way up as the nerve pain has totally disappeared. My fasciculations are almost nonexistent and my legs are no longer weak and shaky.

Avoid Surgery

Reduce or Avoid Need for Surgery

Physical therapy can help you eliminate your pain and heal from an injury so you may not need surgery. Even if you need surgery, physiotherapy can improve your physical health before your surgery, which will help you recover much faster. Avoid or reduce your need for complicated surgery by getting treated with our physiotherapists today.

Improve Mobility

Improve Your Mobility and Balance

Our physiotherapists can improve your physical balance and movement with stretching and strengthening exercises to restore your mobility. Chronic pain, sprained muscles, and injured joints may reduce your mobility and restrict your life. Our physio treatments can safely restore your mobility after every treatment. We can also fit you with a cane, crutches or another mobility device, or assess you for an orthotic prescription, if necessary.

I came here for an injury that occurred at work. My ankle. They helped me get back on my feet, literally. The staff were absolutely amazing and I’m glad I chose this place.

Moorthy helped me fully overcome recurrent back, hip, and calves problems about three years ago, and went back to him for the last couple of months for treatment of a troublesome knee injury, which went great again. He's professional, knowledgeable, tremendously skilled, dedicated, and kind. Highly recommended!

Rehabilitate Injury

Rehabilitate Your Injuries

Physiotherapy can help you rehabilitate an acute injury, such as a stress fracture for long-distance runners. Physical therapy can also help you rehabilitate a chronic overuse injury that has built up over the years, like carpal tunnel. Our physiotherapists can design a sports recovery or injury prevention exercise programs to help you safely return to your activities.

Manage Chronic Illness

Manage and Improve Your Chronic Illness

Physical therapy can help you manage chronic illnesses to improve your quality of life. Our physiotherapists can teach patients with diabetes how to properly care for their feet and avoid conditions like neuropathy, or patients with lung disease how to breathe properly and exercise to strengthen their lungs to clear fluid effectively. Don’t let your chronic illness or condition cause unnecessary suffering in your life; improve your health and feel better now.

Excel changed my life. I was suffering with daily pelvic pain which I thought was caused by my endometriosis. After 2 pelvic floor physio treatments by Priya, my pain was almost gone. Most of my pain was caused by extremely tight pelvic floor muscles. I highly recommend Excel for pelvic floor physio. I finally have my life back. Thanks Priya!

Physiotherapy Services to Help You Excel in Life

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

The pelvic floor is a grouping of muscles, ligaments, nerves, tissues and pelvic organs that support your bowel, bladder, uterus (women) and prostate (men). We assess and treat pelvic health related issues, like urinary incontinence, organ prolapse, pain during intercourse, pelvic pain, and others.

Car Accident Treatment

Some of the most common symptoms after a car accident include whiplash, headaches, lower back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain. We assess the extent of your injury from the accident and provide the latest evidence-based treatment towards recovery.

Work-Related Injury (WCB Claim)

Getting injured at work can result in common health conditions, such as plantar fasciitis, vertigo, carpal tunnel and scoliosis. We assess the extent of your injury from your WCB claim and provide the latest evidence-based treatment to help you recover your health.

Sports and Running Injuries

Injuries are a common part of life. Sports and running injuries may cause sciatica, which is back pain caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve. Our experienced physiotherapists assess and treat conditions like your lower back pain and neck pain that may occur from sciatica, imbalanced posture, sports and running injuries.

Chronic and Acute Pain

Pain can be short-term or long-term in nature. Physiotherapy and acupuncture are helpful for resolving the cause of your pain and for stopping the pain signal. If your pain is acute, it may disappear once we treat the source of your injury. If your pain is chronic, we can manage and alleviate your pain with ongoing treatments.

Our physiotherapist, Priya, is trained and certified in pelvic floor physiotherapy and women’s health physiotherapy. We provide a private, confidential, safe and comfortable environment to support your pelvic health.

I was almost 8 months pregnant and suffering from terrible groin pain. It was so bad it was reducing my ability to walk or really do anything. I noticed a dramatic difference after only one treatment with Priya. I have been seeing her twice a week since and I have my mobility back. The pain has been reduced to where I hardly notice it anymore. As I get closer to my delivery, I am so thankful for the relief I've received from the treatments.

Car Accident Treatment

I walked into Priya's office bent double, virtually unable to walk, and in excruciating, unrelenting pain. 3 weeks and 9 physio sessions later I was walking normally, without pain! Priya also taught me how to manage my sciatica through daily exercise so I never have to repeat that painful, debilitating experience ever again. If I ever have any other issues, I will only go to Priya - she is fantastic!

Sports and Running Injuries

I had intermittent pain and weakness in my wrist for a year before trying physiotherapy. Priya worked with me for 6 weeks and I am happy to report that I have regained previous functionality. She uses a variety of techniques, including TENS stimulation, acupuncture, paraffin wax and strength training.

Sciatica, Pinched Nerve, Spine and Muscle Injury

Recover from Your Sports and Running Injuries

Injuries are a common part of life. Sports and running injuries may cause sciatica, which is back pain caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve. This pinched nerve may cause lower back pain that spreads to the hip, buttocks and leg. Our experienced physiotherapists assess and treat conditions like your lower back pain and neck pain that may occur from sciatica, imbalanced posture, sports and running injuries. We can help you return to your normal life.

Chronic and Acute Pain

Lower Back Pain, Knee Pain, Sciatic Nerve Pain, Shoulder Pain, Neck Pain

Alleviate Your Acute or Chronic Pain

Pain can be short-term or long-term in nature. Physiotherapy and acupuncture are helpful for resolving the cause of your pain and for stopping the pain signal. If your pain is acute, it may disappear once we treat the source of your injury. Acupuncture encourages your body to release endorphins during your treatment, which is why most of our patients feel better right after their treatment. If your pain is chronic, we can manage and alleviate your pain with ongoing physio treatments, while helping you recover from your physical injuries.

Moorthy helped me fully overcome recurrent back, hip, and calves problems about three years ago, and went back to him for the last couple of months for treatment of a troublesome knee injury, which went great again. He's professional, knowledgeable, tremendously skilled, dedicated, and kind. Highly recommended!
