Benefits of Hydrotherapy

  • Reduce pain and increase mobility/ flexibility of your body
  • Water can decrease the stress on your body and the pressure on your joints that conventional exercise cause
  • The water creates a weightless feeling on your body which allows for greater movement in a joint and allow them to work more effectively
  • Water naturally massages your body which increases circulation and aids in releasing tight muscles
  • Water inhibits any high impact actions that may cause pain
  • Improve both muscle and cardiovascular strength

This treatment program is an interdisciplinary approach to patient care, bridging function within the clinical setting to their home and employment. It consists with individual client-centered rehabilitation with ongoing progressive goal setting and physiotherapy rehabilitation with psychosocial/ life skill empowerment. 

Functional recovery program

The Balanced Body Program at Active Body Physical Therapy in LaSalle is about you. It’s about taking control of your own health and wellness and learning what you can do for your own body. It’s about helping you Get Well, Stay Well, Live Well.
It’s a unique approach to rehabilitation that follows the Pilates-based principles of movement and core/postural control and emphasizes proper alignment of the spine as well as the positioning of the shoulder girdle, rib cage and pelvis.

Our hydrotherapy is a Physiotherapy Supervised Pool program consisting of physical therapy exercises that are performed in the water. Hydrotherapy is an alternative form of exercise and provides the opportunity to increase strength and mobility while relieving pain.

Concussion management program

The Balanced Body Program is one-on-one physiotherapy. It’s about evaluating how you align and support your body, about determining how you move and about teaching  you how to do this in a more efficient and effective manner.

You will receive individual attention for your entire session and will be provided with a thorough assessment, analysis and treatment of your body in its entirety as a dynamic, moving entity. This also allows for education so that you can take an active roll in your recovery and return to wellness.

The focus is on a detailed evaluation of how you align, support and move your body with the end result being an increased level of self-awareness and a greater sense of well-being and vitality which arises from a well-supported body. You will become an active participant in the journey to discover how your body is supported and how to move it with ease and efficiency.

How does the program work?

Once enrolled in the program, the athlete will come in and receive a baseline test, then if they get a concussion they come back in to get re-tested and we use the online ImPACT concussion test to track their progress. This allows us to ensure the safety of the athleste before they return to both regular and sports-related activities.

ImPACT testing gives parents the peace of mind that their injured athlete is indeed ready to return to play.

Cost: covered by many extended health benefits. 

The test is administered and interpreted by Impact Trained Physiotherapist and/or Credentialed Impact Consultant. 

Pain management program

Our sports based physiotherapists have been trained in scientifically based concussion management and are credited as ImPACT trained physiotherapist. ​We will also be in direct contact with credentialed ImPACT consultants, who are medical healthcare providers. This state of the art neurocognitive testing and extensive training programs has allowed us to provide the best science available in concussion management to the community.
