Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy in Canmore at the Progressive Wellness Centre provides prompt, effective and expert physiotherapy in a private setting with one on one 45 minute treatment sessions, and one hour assessments.

Physiotherapy is a health care profession directed at evaluating, restoring, maximizing and maintaining physical mobility.  Physiotherapists are considered to be mobility experts who assist people in reaching the highest level of physical function and quality of life that they are capable of.  Progressive Wellness Centre offers a patient orientated approach to the treatment and care of injuries or longer term pain.

Physiotherapists are educated in the normal function of anatomy, physiology, effects of illness and injury on all body systems, and treatment options to restore maximum function. Following the initial assessment, we will provide diagnosis and therapeutic interventions for a wide range of conditions.

Our aim is to find the root cause of your problem. The goal is for you to move your body with greater confidence and with little or no pain. We will show you a long-term solution and how you can help yourself, with exercises and knowledge, to avoid recurrence and the need for ongoing treatment.

From childhood to retirement, from couch potato to weekend warrior or elite athlete, we promise to offer you excellence in assessment and treatment of the whole body.

We offer you expert knowledge in assessment and treatment to the full range of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries.

  • Back pain with treatment by a McKenzie qualified therapist

  • Headaches
  • TMJ disorders
  • Hip, knee and ankle pain

Why have early physiotherapy treatment? We strongly believe early physiotherapy leads to:

  • Early resolution of symptoms like pain and joint restriction.
  • Quicker return to normal activities at home, work or sport
  • Early back to work and early back to play
  • Less treatment needed
  • Decreased number and duration of recurrent episodes.
