Physiotherapy deals with the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. Physiotherapy uses methods which include movement, biomechanics, manual therapy, exercise, and electrotherapy. This is done to help patients restore function, movement and promote holistic well-being.

Physiotherapy is used to improve a patient’s quality of life through diagnosis, examination, intervention, and patient education.

Chiropractic is a discipline that is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. Chiropractors have proposed, especially those in the field’s early history, that such disorders affect general health via the nervous system.

It is complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). The main chiropractic treatment technique involves manual therapy, especially manipulation of the spine, other joints, and soft tissues, but may also include exercises and health and lifestyle counseling.1

The primary goal of chiropractic manipulation is to treat areas of decreased movement in the joints, thereby reducing pain and increasing joint function to help improve overall health.

Massage therapy has existed for almost 4,000 years and is known to be one of the oldest methods of healing. It is a widely accepted and effective treatment for reducing stress and decreasing muscle pain and stiffness. It is also used in aiding rehabilitation and postural realignment.

Osteopathy is the field of medicine that emphasizes on manual readjustments, myofascial release and other physical manipulation of muscle tissue and bones. Osteopathy aims to restore function in the body by treating the causes of pain and imbalance.

To achieve this goal, the Osteopathic Manual Practitioner relies on the quality and finesse of his/her palpation and works with position and mobility of the tissues.

Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct primary health care system that combines modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine.

At Don Valley, our Naturopathic Doctors employ a one-on-one approach with patients and take the time to gain a complete understanding of the person, their symptoms and the underlying cause of a health condition or illness. After diagnosis, they may make diet and lifestyle recommendations and/or prescribe botanical medicines, vitamin and minerals, or use acupuncture to treat a condition.

Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine involving the insertion of solid filiform acupuncture needles into the skin at specific points on the body to achieve a therapeutic effect. No drug is injected. The needles alone create the beneficial effects of acupuncture.

Acupuncture is used to encourage natural healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. It is safe and effective and is often successfully used as an alternative to medications or even surgery. Relief is often obtained with acupuncture when traditional medical therapy has failed.

[Reverse the Signs of Aging]

Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a skin-rejuvenating treatment in which tiny needles create micro-channels in the top layer of skin with the goal of improving overall texture and appearance.

With the use of medical grade serums including hyaluronic acid and vitamin C, the result is smoother, firmer, and more even-looking skin. By promoting collagen growth, Microneedling may help reverse signs of aging (such as fine lines), fade acne scars, and make skin look refreshed.

Social work is a profession concerned with helping individuals, families, groups and communities to enhance their individual and collective well-being. It aims to help people develop their skills and their ability to use their own resources and those of the community to resolve problems. Social work is concerned with individual and personal problems but also with broader social issues such as poverty, unemployment and domestic violence.

Orthopedics is the branch of surgery devoted to treating a wide variety of injuries and disorders in children and adults pertaining to the skeleton and its supporting muscles. Your bones provide the structural frame for your skeleton, protect your internal organs, anchor muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints for movement, store calcium and produce blood cells. Healthy bones are dependent on a healthy lifestyle, but being active may also mean injury.
