“Gavyn always looks forward to Speech Therapy and gets so excited to play with Wendy. Wendy has been very reassuring for me, and she has a great way of expressing pride in achievements instead of worrying me about lack of progress or regression. I also love that it never feels clinical, and always feels like we’re just going for a Play Date.”

Physiotherapy

Keeping you active through life

LCP Health physiotherapy specializes in orthopedic and sports injuries. Assessment and treatment consists of the following techniques for injury and symptom management.

  • Manual Therapy: Hands-on techniques, including soft tissue mobilization, mobilization of joints,  and mobilization of neural tissues.
  • Electrotherapy: Treatment modalities to facilitate the recovery process through pain modulation, control swelling, reduction of muscle spasms and targeting weak muscles. Modalities include ultrasound and TENS.
  • Exercise-based treatment: Exercise therapy to promote the healing process and regain strength, mobility, balance, coordination and cardiovascular fitness.
  • Acupuncture: A form of therapy in which fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body. It is used in the treatment of numerous diagnoses most commonly for musculoskeletal pain.

Physiotherapy services are covered by third party benefits.

Occupational Rehabilitation

Worker Rehabilitation

LCP Health co-ordinates and works in collaboration with you the worker, your physician, and if applicable, your case manager, union rep and employer to design an individualized program and where ever possible programs are provided at the job-site. Care is given to consider the unique characteristics of each worker and their work environment to ensure a lasting solution to get you quickly and safely back to work.

Essential Job Function Analysis (also known as physical demands analysis)

Objective measurements of the physical, environmental and cognitive demands of specific and essential job tasks of the target position. Analysis of the demands of the job position results in recommendations for injury prevention and can be used to assist in finding suitable accommodation for an injured worker.

Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)

The FCE is the cornerstone of a worker’s rehabilitation plan. An FCE provides the assessment of the worker’s physical capability to perform the specific job demands of the pre-injury or target occupation. The comparisons are made for strength, mobility, agility, and dexterity and measurements are provided in weight, frequency, and force.

LCP Health is the only company certified to conduct Functional Capacity Evaluations in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

Functional Restoration Program/Work Conditioning

Functional restoration programs provide a transition between acute care and return to work while addressing the issue of productivity, safety, physical tolerances and work behaviours. Programs use conditioning tasks that are graded to progressively improve the function of the individual in conjunction with real or simulated work activities. Programs are typically daily for 4 weeks duration. Starting at $45/hour.

Duty to Accommodate/Return to Work

Facilitation of RTW and duty to accommodate can be multi-faceted and complex; therefore can benefit from a third party to provide objective measureable modifications at the worksite. Modifications may include work tasks and/or hours to facilitate gradual return to the target job as well as advice regarding medical and psychiatric symptom control and body mechanics.

Work Simulation Standard Testing

Work Simulation Standard testing provides a key component in the safety of both employees and public. Testing establishes the worker’s base-line physical abilities to do the job with or without reasonable accommodation. Additionally beneficial to both the worker and employer, testing provides an opportunity to instruct in proper body mechanics, postures and injury prevention strategies.
