Why Choose Excelsior Physiotherapy?

Excelsior Physiotherapy is a renowned integrated wellness clinic located in the North Edmonton region. We provide customized physiotherapy services in conjunction with acupuncture, and massage therapy to deliver a holistic approach to achieve optimum health. Physiotherapy is also known as Physical Therapy which includes utilization of manual therapy for regaining the lost functions, lowering tissue pain, and muscle pain. This passive therapy aids in joint mobilization by working on the skeletal joints to improve pain, and inflammation, and enhance the range of motion. Our manual therapy will also involve stretching and manipulating the muscles along with the tissues surrounding them. 

Our dedicated team of physiotherapists in Sherwood Park are trained and experienced to perform assessment and diagnosis of any musculoskeletal conditions based on your medical history, medical conditions, and lifestyle. While some wellness centres might offer a physiotherapy session lasting for just 5 to 10 minutes, our physiotherapy sessions at Excelsior Physiotherapy last for more than 30 minutes with one-on-one interaction with your physio. 

Feel Relaxed with Our Physiotherapy Treatments

We at Excelsior Physiotherapy specialize in providing the following treatments to uplift your mood, relieve pain, de-stress and relax. 

Dry Needling 

This type of physiotherapy treatment in Sherwood Park called dry needling is also known as IMS or Intramuscular Stimulation. The term dry refers to using dry needles, which, unlike syringe needles, will not draw liquid. This technique uses acupuncture needles, which don’t have a hollow design. IMS is much different than regular acupuncture treatment, as it targets fascia and muscles in a specific part while acupuncture focuses on the meridian points all over your body. Our physiotherapists might suggest IMS for lowering acute pain and helping people regain their tissue and muscle function. 

Spinal Traction / Spinal Decompression

Our physiotherapy services in Edmonton include a unique treatment known as Spinal Decompression performed on the traction table. Our dedicated physiotherapists perform the Spinal Decompression procedure on the lower back where the lumbar spine is located or on your neck’s cervical spine. We apply a bit of force to tug your head or pelvis off your spine’s centre to help decompress your vertebrae. This method reduces the pressure from your connective tissues, nerves, and discs. The output of this treatment is a high range of motion and a low degree of pain. The Spinal Decompression treatment can be used as a separate treatment option or as a combination therapy program. Our traction table used for this treatment is also equipped with laser therapy that targets your lumbar region for easing the muscles, relaxing the tissues of the joints and repairing them while cutting down inflammation and pain.  

Shockwave Therapy

At Excelsior Physiotherapy, our dedicated team of physiotherapists utilize shockwave therapy as a part of your customized physiotherapy treatment program in North Edmonton. This therapy is also referred to as RSWT or Radial Shockwave Therapy, which utilizes acoustic pulses with a good amount of pressure for penetrating the layers of muscles, bones, and tissues. Shockwave therapy enhances your body cell’s metabolic activities and hence it promotes the healing process. The acoustic pulses help in breaking down the damaged tissues, making it a perfect choice for people dealing with new and old injuries. Whether it is stress fractures, tennis elbow, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, or tendonitis, shockwave therapy can do wonders. The standard period for shockwave therapy is up to three sessions, which might sometimes be extended based on the treatment module.  

Exercise Therapy

The physiotherapy services in North Edmonton offered by Excelsior Physiotherapy include a special component called exercise. Several studies have revealed that opting for exercise therapy will help improve blood flow, stretches the muscles, lower stiff muscles, cuts down the overall healing period after an injury, promotes body posture, and enhances core muscle stability. Our exercise therapy suggested by veteran physiotherapists is beneficial for improving cardiovascular health and promotes circulation of nutrients to your muscles and vital organs. Our physiotherapists in Edmonton might include stationary biking and a treadmill as a part of your physio treatment plan. We will begin exercise therapy at a suitable level to meet your level of injury and fitness to reach the vigorous exercise stage gradually.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound Therapy has been in practice since 1940, as it has been an effective treatment in healing tissues and muscle injury. Our physiotherapists might suggest Ultrasound Therapy to achieve excellent tissue and muscle relaxation, heat the tissues in the targeted area, and promote blood circulation and scar tissue breakdown. 

It delivers several benefits like a faster fracture healing rate and enhanced function. Studies reveal that ultrasound has a direct impact on bone tissue, which makes it an ideal choice to heal fractures quickly. The therapeutic aspect of this therapy is similar to that of ultrasound therapy, as it uses acoustic vibration. Our ultrasound treatment session at Excelsior Physiotherapy might last between 3 and 5 minutes. 

Pelvic Health

Pelvic health is yet another part of our physiotherapy treatment plan as it deals with the issues related to pelvic floor muscles and the organs connected to them. Your pelvic muscles might be very tight or weak, which might cause issues like incontinence, pain during intercourse, and prolapse of the pelvic organ. Our pelvic health treatment module focuses on treating these conditions and other pelvic conditions affecting men and women. 

Laser Therapy / Red-light Therapy 

At Excelsior Physiotherapy, we utilize insured and medically approved therapeutic lasers for treating your injuries and pain related to the conditions listed below. 

  • Neurological Conditions: Laser therapy is performed using a distinct Thor handheld laser device for treating neurological conditions like Parkinson’s, dementia, Alzheimer’s, concussions, and strokes for lowering inflammation and improving the healing process of damaged tissues and cells. 
  • Muscle and Joint Pain: With the laser, we will be able to improve healing and lower pain for our patients facing chronic painful conditions like joint pain related to arthritis and fibromyalgia. Neck and back pain can be quickly relieved with this laser therapy, which is why we prescribe them for sport-related injuries. 
  • Injuries and Wounds: With the Thor handheld laser, our physiotherapist can pace up the healing process of your wounds like lacerations, burns, and bruises or even the healing process post surgeries. Laser therapy is also useful for healing skin issues like eczema and psoriasis.
