Morrisburg Physiotherapy helps clients ‘to move and feel better’
MORRISBURG – It’s been almost eight years since Morrisburg Physiotherapy opened in the small South Dundas village, and co-owners Suzanne Johnston and Victoria Windle, along with their team, have treated residents throughout the township, as well as the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry (SDG), and further abroad.
“We feel that residents of SDG shouldn’t have to travel long distances to get specialized care,” Morrisburg Physiotherapy co-owner Victoria Windle said.
Co-owned by Windle and Suzanne Johnston, both physiotherapists, Morrisburg Physiotherapy is located at 29 Main Street in Morrisburg. In addition to the owners, the team also includes physiotherapy resident Tosha Burns, and physiotherapy assistant Alex Bates, who joined the team in September 2021 and is a registered kinesiologist.
“Most of our clients are from South Dundas but we have several patients that travel from as far away as Ottawa for our services,” Windle said. “We do not require a referral. Physiotherapists are primary care providers. We complete a thorough assessment, diagnose a condition, and make recommendations for treatment. Some insurance companies may require a referral prior to paying for physiotherapy services, so it’s always good to check with your provider prior to booking.”
The clinic has added pelvic floor therapy to the already long list of available services, which includes joint mobilization and manipulation, soft tissue release, acupuncture, functional dry needling, interferential current, ultrasound, TENS and microcurrent, post concussion rehabilitation, motor vehicle accident rehabilitation, vestibular rehabilitation, cardiovascular training, education, one-on-one exercise instruction, custom orthotic fitting, and therapeutic taping, which includes kinesiotaping. In addition to the list of available services, Morrisburg Physiotherapy’s website (mbpt.ca) includes a list of commonly treated conditions, such as sciatica, arthritis, cervicogenic headaches, and more.
“We do see back and shoulder injuries very often,” Windle said. “But practicing in a smaller community means we treat a variety of conditions.”
Johnston and Windle both have additional training in concussion and vestibular rehabilitation, as well as acupuncture and functional dry needling. Johnston does fittings for custom orthotics, and Windle has additional training in chronic pain, neurorehabilitation, and has a PhD in neuroscience. Burns, who joined the team in February, has her level two certification for assessment and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction. She also treats orthopaedic conditions.
“We pride ourselves on providing one-on-one, individualized care, to maximize recovery,” Windle said. “Three and half years ago, we moved to our current location that was completely renovated and is fully accessible.”
Windle said the pandemic has had little impact on Morrisburg Physiotherapy other than the addition of face masks and small changes to the facility’s layout, which didn’t impact the number of patients seen each day. As a healthcare facility, Windle said that Morrisburg Physiotherapy already had strict cleaning protocols in place, and so nothing really changed on that front with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Suzanne and I are very proud of the business and the team that we have built and are thankful for the positive response we have received from the community,” Windle said. “This fall will mark eight years since we started Morrisburg Physiotherapy and we look forward to continuing to help the community to move and feel better.”
Morrisburg Physiotherapy is open Mondays and Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. In addition to the company’s website (mbpt.ca), Morrisburg Physiotherapy can also be found on Facebook.
