- Sciatica: A diagnosis of sciatica can be debilitating. At Action Physiotherapy our clinicians have advanced training in the management of this condition. Treatment consists of advanced diagnostic and manual therapy techniques to offer a speedy recovery and exercises to prevent recurrence of sciatic pain.
- Impairments, Limitations on Activity, and Restrictions on Participation due to a disability can be minimized through the assistance of a physiotherapist. Various treatments and exercises can allow an individual to develop their functional abilities and gain more independence.

- Recovery After Surgery - Collaborating with a physiotherapist will accelerate and improve the healing process. A qualified therapist and specific approach is very important to ensure proper muscle and joint function after surgeries. We commonly work with clients post total hip and knee replacement and post back and neck surgery. Proper rehab post-surgery ensures you get the maximum benefits from your surgery.
- Individuals Experiencing Chronic Pain - No one wants to deal with pain on a daily basis, as it can have a major impact on quality of life, mental health, relationships, and our ability to work effectively and safely. Physiotherapy can intervene to find a solution and reduce or eliminate chronic pain, by identifying and treating the root of the problem.
- Neurological disease- People living with conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, and those recovering from stroke can benefit from the expertise of a physiotherapist.
