The Oshawa Clinic Physiotherapy department is a multi-disciplinary out patients rehabilitation facility located in Durham Region. We provide rehabilitation services for Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA), Private Insurers, WSIB and OHIP.
Our Goal is to provide a collaborative plan of care that offers quality assessment, individualized treatment programs, specialized care and promotion of a healthy lifestyle. We provide a wide range of rehabilitation services including:
Physiotherapy Rehabilitation: Physiotherapy focuses on the promotion of soft tissue healing, improvements in ROM and strength and restoration of function. Treatments include individualized exercise programs, manual therapy, soft tissue release, electrotherapy, hydrotherapy, acupuncture and much more.
Multi-disciplinary Rehabilitation: A Multi-disciplinary approach with various health care providers may be applicable. Physical assessment by a physician, psychological screening, home and/or job site assessment and functional testing will assist to meet further needs of the client.
Massage Therapy: An alternative health provider option that assists with alleviation of soft tissue discomfort, daily and/or occupational stresses, muscular overuse, and chronic pain conditions.
Phototherapy: ultraviolet light (NBUV) and PUVA light treatments for various skin conditions including Psoriasis, Eczema, Dermatitis, Vitiligo and many more.
Functional Ability Evaluations (FAE): Objectively determines the claimant's functional abilities and restrictions (i.e. limitations, strength, dexterity, endurance, etc.) By comparing job requirements to FAE results, the evaluation helps to facilitate a safe and timely return to the workplace. It can also help to determine the extent to which physical impairments are present.
Home Site Assessment: Determines the functional ability of an individual when completing activities of daily living. It compares patients' capacity to complete tasks prior to a motor vehicle accident to after the accident which in turn helps insurers and physicians to determine if aids/devices within the home are necessary. It also provides the patient with education on pacing techniques and energy conservation.
Job Site Assessment: Evaluates an individual's ability to complete required tasks and sub tasks according to job demands. It also can determine if modified duties are fit for the patient in order to return to work in a timely manner.
Physical Demands Analysis (PDA): Measures and evaluates all the physical and environmental demands of the claimant's primary job description as well as any modified duty positions available. It includes digital photography based on an analysis of postural dynamics, physical exertion, body movement and repetition. PDA's may also help to identify potential risk factors for injuries in a job to reduce the occurrence of injury in the future.
