Not all Physical Therapy is created equal.

I had been dealing with pain in my both of my hips for about a year and a half before coming to Inertia Physiotherapy. It was getting worse and was an average of 7-8/10 on a daily basis. It hurt to get out of my chair at work and I could only sleep 1-3 hours at night. I had done Physical Therapy before and had been given some stretches but they didn't really help. I feel so much better with Ana's treatments. I am sleeping better than I have in years (my husband agrees). I rarely have pain during the day and when I do it's much more mild and my exercises are helping. I am very grateful and happy with my results.
I used to think that a sprained ankle was just a sprained ankle, a sore shoulder just a sore shoulder - and each pain or injury could be addressed by focusing on that particular problem. Ana doesn't work that way. She is actually aware of how everything in the body is connected - muscles, bones, connective tissue, nerves...even internal organs and a persons intentions in movement. Because of her holistic approach, Ana has helped me recover not only from recent injuries but also from chronic pain caused by long-ago injuries that never fully healed. With Ana's careful listening, touch and guidance, I move more freely than I have in years . I am deeply grateful.
What sets us apart at Inertia Physiotherapy?
You feel the difference from the start. You'll have the full attention of your therapist and we take ample time listen to your story and learn what's important to you. We don't treat you as a collection of body parts. You are the elegant balance of multiple systems that work together to support life and vitality. None of your systems work alone. They also don't get injured alone or heal alone. This basic understanding guides the care we deliver. We practice Integrative Physical Therapy.
At Inertia Physiotherapy, integrative physical therapy means we understand that no system in your body works alone. Your head bone really is connected to your foot bone, and where it hurts often isn't why it hurts. This is especially true where standard treatments have failed to provide relief. We believe in your body's innate ability to heal but that sometimes it needs help finding the way.
We start your healing journey by taking ample time to listen to your story because we are all a sum of our life experiences. The things that happen to us, even events from our past can be the crucial details that lead to a deeper understanding of your unique problem and the solution.
The key to finding success starts with an evaluation that looks at you as a whole person and is tailored to your body and your goals. In order to achieve this, one must understand all the systems of the body and how they are related. We don't just focus on the body part that hurts. We dig deeper to understand why it hurts and treat the problem at the source.
At Inertia Physiotherapy we have invested in becoming experts in this integrative evaluation and the tools needed to treat the right system at the right time and help you optimize your function and performance.
This is how we can achieve better results, faster and with fewer visits on average than standard physical therapy.
