About the clinic
CMI Laval is home to many disciplines, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, therapeutic yoga and acupuncture.
Who can consult our physiotherapy center?
The physiotherapy centre at CMI Laval is open to everyone. Physiotherapy is available on a direct access basis, which means that you do not need a medical prescription to consult. You can also make an appointment with one of our physiotherapists without having any specific condition.
Physiotherapy is not limited to the treatment of an injury or pain. It is also about guiding the patient towards a healthy lifestyle through physical exercises or advice.
A closer look at vestibular physiotherapy
Physiotherapy treats many injuries such as sprains and tendonitis, but it also intervenes for more specific health problems, such as vestibular physiotherapy.
Vestibular physiotherapy is not really known. And it is often misunderstood. It can help with vertigo and loss of balance related to the vestibule, an internal organ of the ear.
What is sports medicine?
Like its parent discipline, sports medicine or sports physiotherapy is not specific to a particular condition.
In sports medicine, we welcome seasoned athletes as well as amateurs, or simply people who wish to start a new sport and wish to be supported.
This last category of people includes those with a particular health condition, such as asthma.
We treat injuries with care, but we also give a lot of advice for prevention.
Why should you consult an occupational therapist?
Our occupational therapy service is designed for people who have suffered an accident or injury that is affecting their quality of life. This can be seen in a variety of ways.
If you are stilll unable to perform your usual job duties after a work-related accident and a period of rest, you should try occupational therapy.
You can talk to your doctor, who will be able to recommend occupational therapy at the right moment. You can also see an occupational therapist directly, without a referral.
Your occupational therapist’s role will be to help you return to work successfully, and to restore your functional abilities and self-confidence.
How do we establish an occupational therapy treatment program?
The first step of an occupational therapy treatment is the assessment. Through this, the occupational therapist will try to understand the patient’s functioning and how it is affected by the injury. Another goal is to establish a trusting relationship between the therapist and the patient.
Following the assessment, the occupational therapist will develop a treatment plan. It will include personalized, situational and stretching exercises. These exercises will be done gradually and at the patient’s pace, allowing him or her to regain their abilities.
Mental health occupational therapy
Why should you consult a mental health occupational therapist?
At CMI Laval, we offer mental health occupational therapy to everyone. This discipline takes care of people who are unable to resume daily life after an accident, as well as people who show early signs of mental health problems.
Let’s take the example of a person suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after a car accident. He or she may develop a fear of driving and may not be able to get back in the car. This will result in a loss of autonomy.
In this case, the occupational therapist’s role will be to guide the patient towards a return to this activity in a safe and sustainable manner.
To do this, he or she will teach strategies on how to control and manage stress, as well as practical exercises.
So what is acupuncture?
It is not always easy to define this world-renowned practice. We know that it takes needles, and that acupuncture acts on energy and harmony of the body, but what are we really talking about?
Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Therapists who practice it must be members of the Ordre des Acupuncteurs du Québec.
Its aim is to relieve the patient of his or her pain, which can be muscular, articular, or otherwise, and to prevent the onset of others.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles on specific points that are each related to a specific function.
What does therapeutic yoga mean and how does it work?
You’ve been tempted to try yoga for a while, but never really followed through because of your hectic daily routine? Are you looking to develop your flexibility and muscular strength in a gentle way?
If so, the therapeutic yoga classes offered at CMI Laval are for you. In fact, you don’t even have to go anywhere. The classes are offered on Zoom. They are available in real time or on replay, so you can catch up if you miss one.
After a short evaluation, your therapist will teach you postures adapted to your objectives.
The practice of therapeutic yoga is beneficial to both the body and the mind. Its goal is to improve your well-being and sustain it over time. Yoga can be effective in dealing with stress and anxiety, as well as acute or chronic injury.
If you want to try therapeutic yoga, make an appointment with one of our therapists.
What equipment do you need to practice therapeutic yoga?
First of all, make sure to wear comfortable clothes before starting your yoga session. This practice involves stretching techniques and different postures. You will be more comfortable in sweatpants than in jeans.
Your therapist may also ask you to have a bolster, a chair or a strap nearby.
Medical visits are covered by the RAMQ
