Good health starts with a diet that provides all the nutrients your body needs to go about everyday activities. Nutrition is a significant part of an approach designed to maximize your dietary habits and competency that impacts your functioning and helps unlock your full potential. Special health conditions may also require a change in diet. In this case, do it with the help of a professional in the field.
Physical therapy can help you recover your physical abilities to the fullest extent possible based on your own recovery potential. A physiotherapist uses different approaches and treatments, such as manual techniques or specific exercises, to reduce pain, increase your mobility, recover your strength and endurance and encourage a return to your most important activities. The physiotherapist is also an ideal choice for setting up a personal training program in the clinic, the pool and at home.
Massage therapy service
Using different approaches and manual techniques, a massage therapist can relieve various ailments such as muscle and joint pain, stress-induced tension and blood circulation problems. This 100% natural form of therapy fits very well into a recovery process.
Medical consultation and expertise
Sometimes one health problem can hide another. If you want to make sure that problems are treated at their source, you may require the expertise of a general practitioner, a doctor that specializes in musculoskeletal disorders, a rheumatologist, a podiatrist, an experienced orthopedist for day surgery or an expert physician.
Training, tailor-made conference
In occupational therapy and ergonomics, based on our various areas of practice, you can find numerous benefits in raising your colleagues or employees’ awareness about certain health topics. We offer tailor-made conferences to your target audience.
Kiosk – health/safety day
Since prevention and awareness are excellent investments to avoid future problems emerging, a themed kiosk set up in your company can help workers understand the importance of improving lifestyle habits and respecting certain guidelines and prescribed working methods for the well-being and betterment of everyone. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
PDSB training (safe patient handling)
The PDSB training we offer is personalized for health workers to brush up on their knowledge by learning updated information or based on a specific condition for a group or single worker in a company. Training focuses on the health and safety of employees as well as patients. The PDSB trainer has over 20 years of experience in the field of work rehabilitation.
For an injured worker, the PDSB trainer adapts the training to take into account residual pain, if any, and the musculoskeletal lesion (shoulders, neck, back, lower limb, etc.). The health care worker reviews the best strategies for returning to work in a safe and sustainable manner. This training is an asset for any business, health institution and, increasingly, for caregivers.
