MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT
A personal injury from auto accident trauma is common, but sometimes severe and can cause you suffering. An auto injury may result in lost work time, and cause difficulties in dealing with day-to-day responsibilities. We are here to help!
After you’ve been injured in a crash accident, it’s vital to get physiotherapy as quickly as possible. Many times, the effects of an auto injury are delayed or subtle. Seek medical advice as quickly as possible to ensure you are adequately treated and protected for the future. Our physiotherapists will use specialized techniques unique to your injuries in order to get you moving even better than before your accident. Once you report your MVA to your insurer provide us with the claim number, insurance policy number, insurance name, and we take it from there!
Our clinic provides physiotherapists trained in neurological rehabilitation. Neurological rehabilitation patients may suffer from paediatric brain injuries, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, stroke, and other neurological deficits.
At EWC, we know being diagnosed with a neurological condition is scary, and can be detrimental to ones quality of life. We are here to help you improve your day to day functions such as balance and coordination, promote independence, improve muscle strength, and correct improper movement patterns.
Hit your noggin? Eighty-five to 90% of all concussion injuries become asymptomatic within 7-10 days, however, for a yet unknown reason, the other 10-15% of injuries go on to have longer lasting symptoms.
If you are having symptoms beyond 3 to 4 weeks, this is known as “post-concussion syndrome”. Very little is known about what causes post-concussion syndrome, it is currently believed to be due to continued blood flow abnormalities in the brain, continued energy deficits in the brain, psychosomatic, vestibular/ocular (integration between visual and balance systems) and/or potential dysfunction in the muscles and joints of your neck that occurred because of the impact.
VESTIBULAR REHABILITATION THERAPY
It’s not always easy to get back up when you fall down. Evidence has shown that vestibular rehabilitation can help treat and improve symptoms related to vestibular disorders.
People who suffer from vestibular disorders have symptoms such as vertigo, dizziness, visual disturbance, and/or imbalance. Vesitubular rehabilitation is an exercise based program that aims to help the body compensate for vestibular damage/conditions by teaching the brain to use other sense (example: visual) to substitute for the deficient vestibular system. Our therapists will help not only alleviate the symptoms diminishing your quality of life, but will help treat and teach your body how to function optimally with a lacking vestibular system. Get your life back on balance with VRT!
Getting old does not have to mean feeling old. Senior citizens commonly suffer from musculoskeletal problems, neurological dysfunctions (such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s), incontinence, arthritis, chronic pain, and balance impairment.
Our Physiotherapists are experts at helping treat these conditions and improve geriatric quality of life. Physical therapy and geriatric rehabilitation is safe, natural, and improves overall strength and physical condition!
PRE AND POST OPERATIVE ( ORTHOPAEDIC ) PHYSIOTHERAPY

Our therapists will help you recover faster, decrease stiffness and pain, increase range of mobility, and increase strength. Don’t go through the pain of surgery without including pre and postoperative physiotherapy. Your body will thank you!

Headaches and Migraines
Dynamic Tape is the biomechanical tape being used worldwide by rugby players, volleyball players, surfers, tennis players, tri-athletes, soccer players and many other sporting professions to assist these athletes to move through full range of motion without limitation.
It is also used in the treatment of sporting, musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. It is extremely soft, highly conformable, breathable and water resistant which makes it possibly the most comfortable athletic tape on the market. It is applied with the body part in a short position and the tape on stretch (the opposite to traditional kinesio taping) so that as movement occurs, the tape resists and absorbs load, decelerating movement in much the same way as a bungee cord. As shortening occurs the tape can assist initiation in fast movements or through range in slower movements (e.g. working like an active assist in someone who has had a stroke).
