Get Right Physio

Physiotherapy for People with Brain Injuries

Begin Your Brain Injury Recovery With the Help of Our Highly Skilled Physiotherapists

Brain injuries are, unfortunately, an all-too-common occurrence, with both traumatic and non-traumatic injuries affecting thousands of people each year. 


Traumatic injuries are typically caused by firearms, sports, falls, and vehicle crashes, while non-traumatic injuries result from internal factors like a lack of oxygen, a stroke, or a tumour.


Physiotherapy can be of significant benefit to our clients with traumatic or non-traumatic brain injuries; it can help them increase their mobility, regain the strength they’ve lost due to the injury, reestablish muscle function, and reduce any chronic pain. 


To give yourself or a loved one the best possible chance at recovery from a brain injury, book an appointment with one of Get Right Physio’s top-quality physiotherapists so we can help you bounce back.

What Is a Brain Injury?

A brain injury is any damage to the brain that affects its normal function. Not only can brain injuries be caused by a wide variety of factors, but they can also range from mild to profound and life-altering. As a result, the effects of such injuries can vary significantly from person to person.


For many clients, their brain injuries can leave them with reduced mobility, poor balance, a lack of coordination, weak muscle tone, and a dependency on others to complete basic tasks. 


Although the recovery process looks different for everyone, many clients can make noticeable improvements in each of these areas with the necessary physiotherapy treatments. We offer these in homes and condos, hospitals, long-term care facilities and retirement homes.

How Do We Treat Brain Injuries With Physical Therapy?

After suffering a brain injury, clients will only be discharged from the hospital when a doctor deems them well enough to continue their recovery at home. While your condition may stabilize, your improvements will be limited without sufficient physiotherapy, which Get Right Physio is here to provide.


For optimum results, schedule an appointment with one of our fully licensed physiotherapists as soon as possible, as the best results come from the earliest inventions. 


Before you can start your therapy, you’ll need to book an initial consultation with a member of our therapy team. They’ll run a range of assessments to identify your precise needs, which will then be used to design a customized programme. Some tests they’ll conduct include examining your fine motor skills, ability to move, coordination, range of motion, and balance.


At Get Right Physio, we focus on allowing clients in the General Toronto Area (GTA) & surrounding areas who have suffered a brain injury to live as independently and comfortably as possible, making everyday tasks like getting dressed and taking a shower a greater possibility.


Our primary objectives for brain injury physiotherapy are to:


  • Increase overall mobility
  • Enhance your muscle tone and function
  • Ease pain and discomfort
  • Restore coordination

Benefits of Physiotherapy Activities for Brain Injuries

Undergoing appropriate and specialized physiotherapy for your brain injury is imperative to give yourself the best recovery prospects, which leads to a higher quality of life, increased freedom, and a sense of self-assurance.


Below are some of the top benefits of non-traumatic and traumatic brain injury interventions:   

  • After experiencing a brain injury, many daily tasks become much more challenging to achieve. Your therapist will help you to explore a number of different avenues to do so, which can include learning new ways to complete routine activities. An example of this is learning to use your non-dominant hand.
  • Clients have a heightened risk of falling after suffering a brain injury, and our team of therapists works to rebuild your strength and balance to minimize this possibility and allow you to move freely and with confidence.
  • Physiotherapy can have a knock-on impact on your mental health. As your mobility and stamina improve, so do your sleep and general well-being, lowering the risk of developing anxiety or depression.

Frequently Asked Questions

The effects of a brain injury are extensive and multi-faceted. Moreover, the aftermath of brain injuries looks different for every individual. Physical, emotional, and cognitive functions can all be impacted in many ways. These include:


  • Physical: difficulties with movement, weakness or paralysis, fatigue
  • Emotional: depression, anxiety, frustration
  • Cognitive: memory loss, inability to concentrate, lack of reasoning


Although physiotherapy centres around overcoming or improving physical symptoms, making progress with your mobility, strength, and coordination can positively influence emotional and cognitive side effects.

Physiotherapy can help both traumatic and non-traumatic brain injuries, as many clients suffering from each condition present with physical impairments, such as weakened muscles, poor posture, pain, and reduced agility.


Depending on the severity and side effects of the injury sustained, the treatment plans can differ. This is made more complex when considering how non-traumatic injuries can spread to other parts of the brain, while traumatic injuries are centred around certain areas.


While physiotherapy is suitable and valuable for clients with both traumatic and non-traumatic brain injuries, the necessary recovery steps look different for everyone.

Among the primary purposes of brain injury therapy activities is to enhance each client’s overall quality of life. Even though everyone’s prospects and roadmap differ from one another, our dedicated therapists strive to rehabilitate clients to provide them with the skills to live as independently and confidently as feasible.


The extent to which clients can resume their everyday habits varies, but improved mobility, strength, balance, and posture can all contribute to a greater quality of life.

When it comes to receiving physiotherapy treatments for brain injuries, there are no age limits in place. When formulating a programme, our therapists will take the client’s age into consideration.

    Thanks you to Get Right Physio and especially Sabrina for getting my 90 year old mother back on her feet after hip replacement surgery. I was very pleased with the company’s professional expertise and for sending us the right therapist for my mother. Sabrina was very kind, knowledgeable and understanding. I would not hesitate to use the company again.

    Claudia and her team were instrumental in rehabilitating my mom after her stroke. Claudia is a true professional with a wealth of knowledge but she also has a genuine kindness that instantly put my mom at ease. Claudia has a personalized approach, she took the time to understand not just the physical aspects of my mom's condition but also her unique needs and goals. Claudia communicates clearly and prioritized my mom's safety and wellbeing. Her home exercises and practical tips helped to integrate rehabilitation seamlessly into our daily lives. My family and I are grateful for Claudia's hard work with my mom.
