We Offer Even More To Serve You

Prehabilitation

Prescribing exercise and activities to improve your functional abilities before surgery. The goal is to decrease your hospital length of stay, speed up your recovery and return to “normal” activities, and reduce surgical complications.

Post-Surgery Care

Recovering from surgery? Everyone can benefit from physio and a rehab program. Our therapists work collaboratively with your surgeon to decrease your pain, improve your mobility, restore your function and quality of life.


Neurological Rehab

Therapeutic interventions that aims at treating patients who suffer from disorders that are neurological in nature.  Neuro physiotherapy is not just one technique but rather a multitude of intervention techniques aimed at rehabilitating patients with very specific disorders and traumas.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an evidence based therapeutic treatment that uses sterile, thin needles to attract blood flow to an injury site. Acupuncture decreases inflammation, promotes healing and improves nerve health.

Orthotics

Customized medical devices that are designed to align your foot and ankle in the optimal position. Orthotics work much like glasses do on your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your body, decrease pain and improve tolerance to activities.

Custom Bracing

A brace specifically designed to suit your unique needs – a better fit, more comfort. Adding external support to your injury can decrease your pain during daily tasks and recreational activities. With a good assessment a brace can be highly effective.

Concussion Rehab

Concussions and their longterm effects are one of the biggest challenges individuals face. Recovering from a concussion can be a difficult and frustrating time. Everyone is impacted differently and as such, requires an individualized care plan.

Dizziness (Vertigo)

Our therapists have completed extra training and understand dizziness. Treatment depends on your assessment findings, but often involves hands-on techniques, head manoeuvres, an exercise program, or a combo of those strategies.

Jaw Pain

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) is commonly known as jaw pain. Trained therapists can help your pain and clicking by teaching you relaxation, stretching and strengthening exercises for the face, head, neck and postural muscles.

The staff and physiotherapist Darryl at Stouffville Joint Venture are amazing! The are in the heart of stouffville but tucked into the building behind the clock tower and until I was looking for a recommendation for a physio for a child with scoliosis issues.

I had a full knee replacement and the hospital mentioned that Joint Venture Physio had great reviews from former patients, so I made an appointment.The facility is easy to access, bright, spacious and fully equipped. Reception/admin is friendly and very efficient. I was nervous about physio after surgery, but Darryl is very genuine and caring. He put me at ease very quickly and was very encouraging. You'll see he enjoys what he does and is very knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
