About the clinic
CMI Saint-Laurent is located near the Sacré Coeur Hospital and has been working in collaboration with the emergency physicians for several years. The clinic combines several disciplines like physiotherapy, occupational therapy, hand therapy and therapeutic yoga.
Which conditions do we treat in our physiotherapy clinic in Saint-Laurent?
At CMI Saint-Laurent, physiotherapy is available on a direct access basis. In other words, you do not need a prescription to make an appointment with one of our physiotherapists.
Our Clinic will welcome with any injury you may have, whether from sports or work, or if you have been experiencing persistent pain for several days. From back pain due to running, to a wrist injury caused by a fall, or a work-related accident, we are here to help you get back on your feet.
Here is a non-exhaustive list of the conditions we treat:
- Sprains (lumbar, cervical, ankle, knee)
- Tendonitis (wrist, achilles)
- Plantar fasciitis
How do we treat our patients at CMI Clinics?
Once you have booked an appointment on our website, you will be welcomed in our offices by one of our physiotherapists. The first session will be dedicated to the assessment. The goal is to understand the extent of your injury and its origin.
The physiotherapist will use the assessment to establish a treatment plan which can be adapted over time. This plan will include a personalized exercise program and different techniques (taping, cupping).
For whom? How does it work?
It is not always easy for our patients to define occupational therapy. Occupational therapy helps patients regain their full mobility. A loss of mobility may be the result of a work-related accident or injury.
At CMI Saint-Laurent, our patients are as diverse as students, workers and seniors.
If you have suffered a work-related accident and can no longer perform your tasks properly, our occupational therapists can help you.
Occupational therapy is a direct access service, which means that you do not need a prescription for a private consultation.
How do occupational therapists work?
The treatment always begins with an assessment. Its purpose is to understand how a patient’s daily life is affected by a given injury or condition.
The first session is also intended to create a trusting relationship between the occupational therapist and the patient, and leads to the development of a treatment plan.
The focus of the treatment is on activity, in order to gradually restore your functional abilities and self-confidence.
Mental Health Occupational Therapy
Who is mental health occupational therapy for?
Mental health occupational therapy is an extension of occupational therapy. It treats people whose mental health problems interfere with their daily lives, sometimes to the point of preventing them from performing certain daily activities. We see patients suffering from depression, exhaustion or mood disorders.
It is never too early to seek occupational therapy. If you feel like you are having trouble with your daily life, make an appointment with one of our occupational therapists or talk to a health care professional so that an intervention plan can be developed to help you.
So what is kinesiology?
If your goal is to improve your physical condition through regular physical activity, kinesiology is for you.
By studying your movements and other factors, our kinesiologists will develop a training program specifically for your condition and abilities to improve your overall well-being.
This program will include physical exercises, but also advice on prevention for example, to help you adopt healthy habits.
Kinesiology is for everyone: whether you have a particular physical (injury, illness) or mental (stress, sleep disorders) condition or not.
Who can practice kinesiology?
To become a kinesiologist, you must have a graduate degree in kinesiology.
At CMI Saint-Laurent, our kinesiologists are members of the Fédération des Kinésiologues du Québec.
Hand therapy: why and for whom?
The main objective of hand therapy is to treat injuries and to restore the upper limb’s ability and function (movement, mobility) in an optimal way. The treatment can target the hand, the fingers and the wrist.
To provide you with the best care, we surround ourselves with the best: our team includes some of the few Certified Hand Therapists in Quebec.
We treat all types of patients. We can take care of a patient quickly after surgery to begin his or her rehabilitation.
Whether you have had an injury or surgery, have a deformity or are experiencing symptoms, you can make an appointment with one of our therapists.
What is the purpose of this practice?
First, acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and is based on the existence of vital energy (Qi). If the flow of Qi is blocked or disturbed, acupuncture can restore it.
Acupuncture has many benefits and can help relieve many disorders, including stress and anxiety, as well as muscular pain.
So, whether you have back pain due to a bad posture at work or sleep disorders, acupuncture could help you.
Is acupuncture only done with needles?
While it is true that needles are the tool of choice, it would be entirely wrong to think that they are the only one. Depending on the patient’s condition and age, an acupuncturist may use other tools such as massage or cupping.
Who is massage therapy for?
Massage therapy can help manage numerous conditions. Thanks to its techniques, this practice can bring you relief, whether you are suffering from a sports injury, a work-related accident or sleep disorders.
Indeed, there are many benefits to massage therapy: it relieves muscular pain, helps blood circulation and improves sleep quality.
Our massage therapy services are offered in direct access. This means that you do not need a prescription to make an appointment.
What are the different massage techniques?
The two main techniques used by our massage therapists at CMI Saint-Laurent are Swedish massage and myofascial release. Swedish massage is often used for therapeutic or relaxation massages.
With its dynamic movements, it relaxes muscles and dissolves tension.
The use of one technique or the other varies depending on the patient’s profile: age, condition, tolerances…
What can a private trainer do for you?
If you are trying to get back into shape through physical activity, you can ask for the services of a private trainer.
He or she will act as a motivator to help you reach your objectives. Their support will ensure your safety and prevent potential injuries related to intense physical activity.
Your trainer will first conduct an evaluation, including taking your measurements, weight and pressure. After defining your goals, your private trainer will set up a personalized training program. Each session will include three elements: cardio, muscle and flexibility.
Stress management and improved well-being: the benefits of therapeutic yoga
Therapeutic yoga is an approach to yoga that not only promotes the well-being of the person, but also seeks to relieve them.
Through the use of yoga postures, breathing and relaxation methods, therapeutic yoga can help you to manage sub-acute or chronic injuries, cultivate a mindful presence or deal with stress and anxiety.
Medical visits are covered by the RAMQ.
