Fellowship requires physiotherapists to pass a series of written and practical exams based on the standards set out by the International Federation of Orthopaedic Physical Therapists (IFOMPT).

What Is a Global Physiotherapy Assessment?
Do you have pain that keeps returning? Or pain that changes location and prevents you from living a normal life? A global physiotherapy assessment will look at all the potential pain sources. For example, if you have pain in one shoulder, we will assess your neck and both arms. If you have foot pain, we will check your back and legs. We have found that pain in one joint rarely originates from the local area.
The cornerstone of our services is a detailed evaluation of the many potential sources of your pain. Our physiotherapists start with a posture exam to check how you hold your head and body. We will also measure your movements and do strength and nerve function tests. These assessments help to identify possible problems and allow us to arrive at a diagnosis. We use muscle charts and models of different joints of the body to explain the anatomy of the pain problem and will discuss multiple options for physiotherapy treatment.
Initial assessment appointments last up to one hour and include treatment. Follow-up appointments are thirty minutes. All of your sessions will be with a physical therapist — assistants do not administer treatment. Advanced physiotherapy techniques, in particular, require an experienced physiotherapist to provide the quality of care our clients expect.
Modern Physiotherapy Technology and Treatments
At Global Physiotherapy, we use state-of-the-art physiotherapy technology. Laser and regenerative photonic therapy provides soft tissue healing for muscles, tendons, joints, and nerves. This technology also provides immediate and long-term pain relief for multiple points of the body. Acute and chronic conditions in particular can benefit from this treatment. All our staff members have up-to-date training on the laser and regenerative photonic therapy treatment protocols.
Advanced manual therapy and spinal manipulation or joint adjustments help improve normal movement. Medical acupuncture, based on medical research and neural anatomy, can treat multiple sites of pain.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) acupuncture and fire cupping are part of Charlotte Dowhaniuk’s physiotherapy treatments for concussion and chronic pain conditions. Cindy Coneen, and Leasa Stanley offer Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) to treat chronic shortened muscles that cause pain and nerve impairment. Yvonne Keats uses dry needling to improve muscle function. Jeri Williams provides detailed assessments and treatment to assist women with pelvic floor and bladder control problems.
Your physiotherapy treatment will include any combination of the following evidence-based, hands-on treatments and new technology:

One-on-One Physical Therapy Sessions
Our new clinic is designed to provide private, one-on-one physio assessments and rehabilitation. Every room is equipped with high-quality, Canadian-made Cardon electric treatment tables for client and therapist safety. The exercise area has all the equipment we need to help you improve your movement patterns and become stronger. You can also purchase exercise tools at a reasonable price to continue your therapy at home.
Conditions That Benefit from a Global Physiotherapy Approach
Many joint, muscle, and nerve problems will dissipate with physical therapy. A global physiotherapy approach targets pain that is present in more than one location in the body or that has been present for more than six weeks. Chronic pain and injuries that do not improve with rest can also benefit from a detailed physiotherapy evaluation. Nerve pain, tingling, and weakness are signs of conditions that could benefit from a global physiotherapy approach. We provide many advanced treatment options for such conditions.
In Sherwood Park, Sports Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation is One of Our Strengths
New and acute problems heal faster with early physiotherapy rehabilitation. One of our most successful rehabilitation programs is sports physiotherapy. Edmonton athletes of all ages are able to return to their sports activities with our treatment.
Our unique laser and regenerative photonic therapy system improves blood supply to the injured area, resulting in effective healing. Photonic therapy with red and infrared light stimulates cells that repair damaged tissue. Removing the chemicals contributing to inflammation helps to decrease pain. Return to your sport sooner with expert treatment from physical therapists at Global Physiotherapy. We’re all adult athletes who love our sports, so we understand the importance of making a swift and thorough recovery.
Motor Vehicle Accident Injury Rehabilitation
Were you injured in a motor vehicle collision? Have you been receiving physiotherapy or chiropractic treatment but are no longer improving? You can notify your adjuster that you want to change facilities and benefit from our advanced treatment approach, which includes exercise. We have excellent administrative staff who can assist with the paperwork for your insurance company.
