IMPORTANT NOTICE TO OUR VALUED CLIENTS:

Please note that our fees are increasing on Monday January 18. We thought long and hard about doing this. We have not increased our fees in the past 4 years. Unfortunately, with the increased time demands placed on us by the Pandemic rules we feel that we do not have a choice. We thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Your health and safety remain our priority, so we will be following all the guidelines set down by our College and Physiotherapy Association. You will notice some physical changes in the clinic setup to make “social distancing” easier such as a newly renovated waiting/reception room. We have also made some changes to our scheduling to create a 15 minute buffer zone between appointments to minimize any interaction between clients. The front entry way to the building is now unlocked. When you arrive for your appointment, please come up the stairs and ring the doorbell for Bridge Physiotherapy. It is located on the right hand side of the doors, and we will signal you to let you know if you can enter the clinic. We will continue to offer “Telehealth” appointments for those who wish to follow-up virtually. You can book online by going to our website: www.bridgephysio.ca and clicking on the book appointment Logo. Alternatively, you can book by logging into your account if you already have one. If you are in a high risk group for Covid-19, please call 250-585-8480 or e-mail us directly at bob.bridge@shaw.ca, and we will arrange an appointments when there will be no other clients in the office to maximize your safety. We wish you good health.

As primary health care professionals, physiotherapists combine in-depth knowledge of how the body works with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability.
Your Physiotherapy assessment may include analysis of posture, gait, and balance, joint range of motion, functional movement patterns, muscle strength, as well as neurological function.
Once your assessment is complete your Physiotherapists will review the results with you, review how your body works, and what is keeping it from moving well, and then prescribe a personalized therapeutic exercise program to reduce your pain, restore your mobility, and promote your independence.
Depending on your condition, your treatment may also include mobilization, manual therapy, modalities to reduce pain, acupuncture, or corrective orthotics in addition to your home rehabilitation program.
By combining the principles of evidence-informed practice, assessment skills, clinical and professional judgment, your physiotherapist will work closely with you, and often with other health care professionals, to ensure that your health goals are met.

At Bridge Physiotherapy and Massage we utilize the Footmaxx gait analysis system to assess your foot function and provide custom made foot orthotics.
An orthotic is a type of splint that is placed in your shoe to correct how your foot moves. Correcting any abnormal walking or running pattern that you may have allows you to stand, walk, and run more efficiently, and comfortably.
Orthotics fall into three categories; Semi-Rigid, Soft, and Rigid. Each type has its’ own specific advantages and disadvantages. By far the most common type of orthotic prescribed is the semi-rigid type as it strikes the best overall balance between controlling abnormal motion in the foot while still allowing it to move and adapt to the surfaces you are walking on
