Our approach at North Bay Physiotherapy is to treat the whole body, not just an isolated injury. We offer a variety of personalized, one-on-one treatments to ensure our patients’ long-term health and wellness.
An initial consultation allows us to assess your injury and get you started with an active treatment plan to get you back to the things you love. This assessment entails an hour long visit where we will take a detailed history of your injury or pain in combination with a movement examination to optimize and initiate a tailored treatment plan.
At North Bay Physiotherapy we believe in individualized exercise prescription and progression to help the body heal from injury.
With additional specialization in manual therapy assessment and treatments. Our therapists can use a patient centred approach to tailor hands on techniques to facilitate joint mobility and pain relief.
