YOUR LOCAL GUELPH PHYSIOTHERAPIST
Our Guelph physiotherapist helps people affected by injury, illness, or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education, and advice.
Physiotherapy is a specialized and regulated health profession that treats individuals who suffer from cardiorespiratory, neurological, and musculoskeletal conditions. Physiotherapists are specialists in diagnosing and managing conditions within their area of expertise. They help to enhance performance, improve function, and alleviate physical pain for their patients.
To start the physiotherapy process, an assessment is conducted in order to make a diagnosis. A treatment plan is then created with the goals of resolving symptoms and restoring function. After the condition is healed, the patient is then given strategies to improve their overall health and prevent the return of the problem.

The Wilson Health Guelph Physiotherapy Process
Wilson Health Services starts with taking a history of what your problem is and then we conduct a comprehensive physical evaluation. After the evaluation is complete, and your diagnosis is confirmed, we will then recommend a custom-focused treatment plan for you. The condition of every patient is unique. To ensure its effectiveness, your plan is designed to address the major cause of your issue. We will provide you with strategies for eliminating or controlling your symptoms, and work on methods to ensure your problem does not reoccur.
There are many tools that are available to our physiotherapists at Wilson Health Services in Guelph. Treatments might include shockwave therapy, laser therapy, “hands-on” manual therapy, a specific exercise program, or many other strategies designed to help you feel better faster. We evaluate your progress continuously and will fine-tune your treatment to achieve the best results. After your process with us is complete, you will have everything you need to prevent future injury and stay healthy.
What is Shockwave Therapy?
Wilson Health Services believes that fast results should be the result of Physiotherapy, and we want all of our clients to be able to access many different effective treatment methods in order to ensure their recovery. We are very excited about adding Shockwave Therapy to the list of treatment methods that we offer to our clients.
The body’s healing process is accelerated by Radial Shockwave Therapy by enhancing blood circulation and stimulating metabolism in order to regenerate damaged tissue.
It is achieved when Radial Shockwaves, similar to vibratory sound waves, get transmitted into the patient’s tissue. Shockwave Therapy can be described as a “massage from the inside to the outside.” Vibrational Radial Shockwaves are able to penetrate deep inside the patient’s muscle tissue, in areas that cannot be reached using traditional manual therapies. Micro-cavitation bubbles are created by Vibrational Shockwaves deep inside the tissue and they expand and burst to stimulate healing.
Also, shockwaves help the body with growing new blood vessels in those areas where the blood supply might have been compromised due to prolonged myofascial tension and adhesion, which allows healing products to access those areas better. Other benefits that Shockwave Therapy provides include breaking calcification down which might be delaying chronic injury healing and causing pain as well as tissue renewal through stimulating collagen regeneration.
What is Laser Therapy?
It has been proven that Laser Therapy is highly effective, painless, and safe for treating various types of chronic pain and acute injuries. It is especially helpful with “difficult-to-treat,” persistent and stubborn conditions, including muscle and joint pain, arthritis, as well as chronic neck and back pain.
Oxygen is promoted by Laser Therapy into the immediate area. This increases blood flow and also helps with circulation inside the body and into the affected areas. The most significant benefit of Laser Therapy is that it works to stimulate the natural process that occurs inside the cells, which eliminates pain and produces better recovery times.
Laser light that has differing duration and wavelengths penetrates the soft tissue in order to directly deliver energy to the injured tissue cells. This is a very beneficial effect for injured bone, cartilage, nerves, tendons, ligaments, muscle, and skin. The actual laser treatment is not painful. An array of lasers, or “treatment heads,” deliver laser, along with focused, deep penetrating laser “probes” in order to reach deeper areas of injured tissue.

Is Physiotherapy Painful?
There are some people who mistakenly believe that physiotherapy causes pain, and that is why they might avoid treatment. Others confuse Physiotherapy with other types of medical interventions that might be painful. Truthfully, the aim of physiotherapy is to relieve pain and not to cause it. Our Gueloh physiotherapists are trained to be able to perform range-of-motion as well as other modalities within a pain-free range.
