The whole body is connected, and when injuries occur, they can affect more than just one specific area. At Donna Sarna Physiotherapy, your physiotherapist will evaluate, not just the site of injury or dysfunction but the body as a whole. This is achieved by examining posture and movement patterns but also evaluating the muscles, fascia, joints, and nerves to identify areas of restriction, weakness, stiffness and or dysfunction. An individualized treatment plan is developed based upon the findings, incorporating a variety of manual techniques in conjunction with the use of modalities and exercise prescription to address the areas of injury and deficits identified and aid in progressing the individual through the stages of healing. Ultimately our goal is to help our clients achieve their goals, whether it is being able to lift up their children, vacuum their carpet or run a marathon.

How Can Donna Sarna Physiotherapy Help?
At Donna Sarna Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation, we can treat a wide variety of orthopaedic conditions. An individualized treatment plan is developed based on the assessment findings and will include a combination of treatments dependent on your specific needs, such as myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, visceral mobilization and other soft tissue techniques. Joint mobilization techniques, joint manipulations, and muscle energy techniques may be part of your treatment plan. Acupuncture and/or dry needling may also be included in your treatment if appropriate. Core stabilization and other appropriate exercises may be prescribed to help release tight muscles, increase stability, and strengthen areas of weakness.
Physiotherapists are trained in exercise prescription for individuals who have experienced an injury, pain, or have co-existing health conditions. So whether you’re an athlete, weekend warrior, or need help with the tasks of daily living, we can help you get back to doing the things you need and the things you love!
