When you’re in physical pain, you want relief, and the team at PhysioCare in Whitby employs the highest standards and the most up-to-date equipment in the industry to help patients heal.
At the helm of the clinic is owner Ghada Shendy, a top-rated and well-known registered physiotherapist, who’s experienced and licensed in the use of state-of-the-art equipment, including bioflex laser and shockwave machines, the Graston Technique and spinal decompression traction.
“If you have a chronic problem, such as a torn ligament or arthritis, treating a patient by hand can take a long time to achieve healing,” notes Ms. Shendy. “With the use of equipment such as bioflex laser therapy, the treatment is more effective and shorter. Plantar fasciitis, for example, could be treated 100 times and come back again. The only solution is shockwave treatments; that treats it permanently.”
PhysioCare, located in the Kendalwood Plaza at 1801 Dundas St. E., uses the most modern equipment and techniques available in the physiotherapy field. Its team of physiotherapists is highly skilled, and expert in assessing a patient’s condition and communicating effectively with the patient’s physician.
“Rotator cuff injuries are common cases we see,” continues Ms. Shendy. “They are effectively treated with both shockwave and bioflex. That’s a very painful injury; it can stop your life completely. You might not even be able to wash a dish, or put on a shirt. A lot of people can’t tolerate treatment by hand. With the use of treatment machines, generally recovery time is much shorter.”
Bioflex laser therapy has no adverse side effects, and is curative, promoting the restoration of normal cell structure and function. It is highly effective in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, arthritis, sports injuries, wound healing and a wide range of dermatological conditions. Bioflex therapy is the treatment of choice for back problems, soft tissue injuries and repetitive stress injuries, among other issues.
A patient at PhysioCare is assessed on their first visit, and a treatment plan is devised. Options may include shockwave therapy, effective for many causes of chronic pain. Decompression therapy can relieve back pain, spinal problems and treat problems such as herniated discs.
Ms. Shendy is licensed in Graston Therapy Technique, which can resolve chronic conditions thought to be permanent. It treats soft tissue problems and chronic inflammation, and is helpful for conditions that include fibromyalgia, scleroderma and multiple sclerosis.
Rated as a top physical therapist by the website threebestrated.ca, Ms. Shendy also specializes in treatment of the pelvic floor for female patients, which can prevent post-natal problems, treat problems after childbirth, or address other issues relating to the pelvic floor, such as incontinence.
PhysioCare Whitby offers a roster of other treatments, including ultrasound, acupuncture, osteopathy, chiropractic therapy and manual massage. Its staff is dedicated to helping patients achieve wellness through the best treatment methods available.
