STUDIO ATHLETICA & PUSH POUNDS

Studio Athletica & Push Pounds offers the best physiotherapy, rehabilitation and strength and conditioning services in Toronto. We cater to individuals of all abilities, including professional athletes, weekend warriors, and individuals who simply want to move and feel better.
We are confident that Studio Athletica has some of the best physiotherapy practitioners in Toronto. Our Registered Physiotherapists have years of experience working with a variety of musculoskeletal ailments in persons of all ages and activity levels. Whether it be professional or recreational athletes, military, pediatrics, bodybuilders, runners, celebrities, etc, our physiotherapists have it covered. We have a very strong belief that biomechanics and the way your body moves, has significant correlation to pain and function. It is that thorough understanding of the body’s movement and the muscular forces acting during these movements that allows us to create individualized treatment plans specifically meant to get you moving better, with improved function and pain free. The body that doesn’t move well, won’t feel well, and this is our focus. Different than traditional passive techniques used, our programs are actively engaging the patient, re-teaching the body to move in the correct biomechanical plane in order to function as a complete unit. We have a reliable and proven track record of effectively many physical ailments using evidence-based approaches that, combined with the latest technologies, have made us the success we are.

Our physiotherapists are well acquainted with a wide range of treatment modalities, which they employ to deliver the best individualized treatment to our clients. Some of the treatment options may include:

 – Exercise therapy including corrective and functional exercises (**most important)

 – Manual (hands-on) therapy

 –  Graston / Fascial Stretch / Active Release Therapy

 – Postural and biomechanical assessments

 – Sports-specific therapy and training

 – Acupuncture and dry needling

 – Shockwave therapy

 – Ultrasound therapy

 – Electrotherapy

 – Athletic and therapeutic taping

 – Pelvic floor physiotherapy

Using a combination of the above treatment methods, our Physiotherapists develop  comprehensive and evidence-based treatment plans  for each client. This is important as each client’s needs and goals relating to the injuryare different and requires personalized approaches to effectively address them.

Studio Athletica physiotherapists are also well equipped with top-of-the-line technologies and equipment to aid their extensive knowledge, in order to help you with your injuries and needs. These include a state of the art gym facility utilizing Keiser, Rogue, and Eleiko equipment, as well as DEXA body compostion scanner. Contact us to schedule a session with one of our experts or to enquire about our physiotherapy services.

We believe listening to patients is, first and foremost, the most important way to start a rehabilitation process. Careful physical assessment follows. This focuses on aspects such as tenderness, swelling in areas of pain, resting posture, how movement is initiated and how your joints move in space, which may lead to obvious deformities, muscular imbalances, and injury prone positions

From there we have an extensive and integrated multidisciplinary team of musculoskeletal experts that are able to weigh in on your concerns. This way it is not just one head, or one therapist helping with your care. Instead we are able to utilize the full breadth of our in-house team of sports doctors, surgeons, pain specialists, RMTs, athletic therapists, physiotherapists, dietician, sports chiropractors as needed, to review your case and aid in your care and recovery. You are NOT ALONE!

We are not your average curtain room clinic, with 20 minute appointments placing bogus machines or lasers and hope you improve. We are fully committed to restoring proper body function by resorting to EXERCISE programs geared toward achieving this goal. We have large fully private rooms and a state of the art gym facility. Treatments are usually done partially in both areas. Hands on, manual or assistive technologies are performed in a fully private room before or after the exercise portion as per your treatment plan.

Where applicable, our physiotherapists focus on finding the root cause to the problem, and not simply covering up a symptom. When that cause is not necessarily correctable (ie: osteoarthritis), they are knowledgeable in ways to mitigate the disability caused by the pathology, through optimizing muscles around the joint in order to resotre function.

Our therapists continuously update their knowledge and skillset. Understanding the importance of staying up to date, current, and cutting edge, we fully encourage and support our therapist’s self-improvement through various educational endeavors both within the clinic, and outside our walls.

Choosing Studio Athletica physiotherapists in Toronto means choosing experts committed to working with you, enabling a life-long relationship producing a functional and healthy body.

Behind every provider is a team of medical specialists able to order any imaging or test deemed necessary, provide consultation on short notice, and directly help in creating a plan to achieve your goals. This level of rehab and medical specialist integration, and passion to get results, exists nowhere else.

Our strong focus on restoring proper biomechanics and its importance in functional, pain-free movement is crucial to us achieving success, where others may have not.

Unfortunately, not all physiotherapy facilities and persons are as experienced or dedicated as the Studio Athletica & Push Pounds Toronto team. Some do not utilize personalized care systems, but instead use the “one care system fits all” model, which may lead to unsuccessful physiotherapy outcomes

At Studio Athletica, we understand that this can be quite frustrating, as your recovery, health, and time are essential to you. This is why our dedicated physiotherapists and rehab team take the time to learn about your concerns, delve into prior treatments and why they may not have been successful. Only then can they formulate a strategy and program that will be different than previous attempts, and create the results you are looking for.

If you have undergone an unsuccessful physiotherapy treatment in the past, or are currently under a treatment that does not seem to be delivering any results, contact us to schedule a consultation with one of our expert physiotherapists.
