Rediscover the Joy in Life

Is your body robbing you of joy?

Perhaps you have given up your favourite activity due to an injury that won’t go away. Maybe you can’t pick up your kids and swing them around because your back hurts. When you can’t rely on your body to support your spirit, life is less enjoyable.

You go from therapist to therapist seeking help. One person helps you with a certain aspect, while another helps you with a different bit. They touch upon the problem a piece at a time. And then one day you realize that you are not finding what you are looking for. Treatment x, y, and z haven’t given you what you need. What is it that’s missing? Joy. It is only when all systems in your body are working together that you can restore joy in your life. And that doesn’t happen one piece at a time.

We treat people, not body parts.

If you believe in addressing your whole body rather than piecemeal parts, then come in and see us. If you have had a series of seemingly unrelated injuries that haven’t resolved, then we are the professionals for you. If you have pain that came out of nowhere, then we will find the underlying cause. 

We will look at how everything is inter-connected and restore harmony in your body. When these issues are truly resolved, you will rediscover your joy. 

Just for You

At our clinic you will see the physiotherapist one-on-one for your entire appointment time, each and every time. We are here just for you.

The M.A.P. Approach

Our approach developed from a sense of inter-connectedness of all systems of the body. No part of you works in isolation and if any one part is out of balance it affects the whole.

Movement - M.A.P. Physiotherapy - Ottawa

Movement

We step back and look at how your body moves as a whole, regardless of where the current pain or dysfunction is. This allows us to see the big picture of how everything is working (or not working) together.

Alignment - M.A.P. Physiotherapy - Ottawa

Alignment

There is an optimal order to things in your body. When one part is out of alignment it affects every single other part of you on some level. We work through hands-on treatment to restore balance in your whole being.

Performance - M.A.P. Physiotherapy - Ottawa

Performance

When all systems are working together true health can be restored. You can achieve your goals no matter what they are.

Our Services

Children

We can help with common conditions such as growing pains, Osgood-Schlatter disease, sports injuries, as well as developmental and neurological conditions.

Infants

We can treat common conditions such as colic, torticollis, and plagiocephaly as well as developmental or neurological issues.

Orthopædic Conditions

Painful conditions such as tendonitis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and back pain are really just a symptom of something gone wrong elsewhere in the body. We will help you find the true cause.

Perinatal

Whether it be prenatal aches and pains, feeling all loosey-goosey postnatally, recovery from C-section, or continence issues years after having children, we can help you get back to feeling like yourself again.

Athletes

When it comes to treatment and prevention, alignment and balance is everything. This involves the whole body, not just the sore spot. Treat the small stuff before it becomes big, or better yet avoid injury altogether.

Neurological Conditions

Whether you have had a recent neurological injury or a stroke many years ago, we can help you make the most of your functional mobility and avoid pain.

Book an Appointment

We are a small physiotherapy clinic located in the east end of Ottawa, Ontario. M.A.P. Physiotherapists focus on what matters to you, spending time to understand your needs, and providing the personal attention that makes a real difference.

We would like to assure you that we are following very strict guidelines to ensure the safety of our clients, therapists, and our community as a whole. As we are a small practice, there are minimal people in the clinic at once and you will have no contact with anyone other than your therapist.
