Rebalancing Sudbury one patient at a time

Rebalancing Sudbury one patient at a time

ReBalance is Sudbury’s newest physiotherapy and chiropractic clinic that opened on the Kingsway. The team works collaboratively to provide effective care to all of their patients. We spoke with the owners to find out more.

What is the story behind ReBalance Health Group? What was your motivation to open your own clinic? 

Opening a clinic has been a goal for each of us since we graduated. The three of us met through work and developed a strong professional relationship, quickly realizing that we shared similar goals and visions for the future. This realization led to the creation of ReBalance. We wanted to create a “one-stop shop” for all injuries that would combine the benefits of each of our specialties; chiropractic, physiotherapy, pelvic health and rehabilitative yoga.

What exactly is an interdisciplinary health clinic? Can you tell us a bit more about the services your clinic offers? 

An interdisciplinary health clinic is comprised of a group of professionals from different disciplines who work and communicate together to care for a patient within a primary care setting.

We offer a large array of services that all fall under the scope of practice for Chiropractic and Physiotherapy including acupuncture, pelvic-health Physiotherapy, dry needling, pre and post-natal care, a full gym, rehabilitative yoga, amputee rehabilitation, taping, custom bracing, custom orthotics and more.

What are each of your roles and how do the three of you work together with your patients? 

Philipe Lachance and Ashley Shelswell are our Physiotherapists and Dr. Lindsey Rebeiro is our Chiropractor. Our patients get the undivided attention of their therapist during their treatment session. The aim of our one-on-one sessions is to identify and correct the dysfunctional movement patterns that are often at the root of any injury. It is common for you to see both a chiropractor and a physiotherapist throughout your care program. Together, the therapists discuss your case and come up with the best management strategies for a quicker recovery and to empower you with the knowledge you need to prevent, minimize and self-manage re-occurrences.

All of our therapists offer something a little different and strive to stay up to date on best-evidence practice to provide more levels of care for our patients.

We like to keep the clinic upbeat and lively, creating a positive space for everyone.

You recently opened your clinic in mid November – what has the response been like so far?

In one word: humbling. We have felt so much support from the the people in our lives and the community at large. We are so happy to be able to provide these services to the people of Greater Sudbury.

What are your plans for the future of ReBalance? 

Currently our strategies are to continue to integrate within the community. We are hoping to eventually provide free learning sessions on various topics related to your muscles, nerves and joint health.  We would like to continue to share more about the services we offer, specifically Pelvic Health Physiotherapy and the Women’s Health Program we are continuously developing. Starting in February 2017 we will also be offering rehabilitative yoga sessions with Dr. Rebeiro.
