At Neuromotion, our therapists utilize the NDT (Neurodevelopmental Treatment) and Bobath models to frame our physiotherapy practice. This involves a problem-solving approach based on an individual’s clinical presentation and personal goals. Following initial assessment and movement analysis, therapists collaborate with clients to create an appropriate treatment plan aimed at kickstarting neurological pathways and developing efficient movement strategies. Through therapeutic handling (a dynamic hands-on reciprocal interaction between client and therapist) and task-specific training, therapists work with clients to optimize function with ongoing physiotherapy sessions.

Orthopaedic physiotherapists treat almost any condition that affects your ability to move or function physically in your daily life. Examples include arthritis and other injuries to joints, muscle strains, and back or neck pain. Orthopaedic physiotherapists also commonly aid in recovery after surgeries such as joint replacements, ligament reconstruction/repair, muscle repair, and heart surgery or any other invasive surgery. Orthopaedic physiotherapists are also often involved in recovery from workplace injuries or injuries resulting from vehicle collisions.
Orthopaedic physiotherapy appointments involve an initial assessment of the condition/injury followed by the development of a plan of care personalized to the individual with the ultimate goal of maximizing function post-injury. This will typically include an at home and/or in clinic exercise program as well as any other treatments indicated based on the nature of the injury.
