Say Goodbye to Back Pain and Stiffness - Physiotherapy Can Reduce the Need for Painkillers, Surgery and No Doctor Referral Required!

The lower back is an intricate structure of interconnected and overlapping elements: tendons and muscles, other soft tissues, highly sensitive nerves and nerve roots, and small and complex joints and spinal discs and their gelatinous cores.

When a problem or something is irritating any of these sensitive structures, it can cause lower back pain and pain that radiates to other parts of the body. And as if the pain alone weren't enough to bear, many patients also suffer from painful muscle spasms in the lower back that can be disabling in their intensity.

But while lower back pain is widespread, the symptoms and severity of lower back pain vary greatly. We’re all different. For some people, a simple lower back muscle strain might be excruciating enough to require an emergency room visit, whereas, for others, a degenerating disc might cause only mild, intermittent discomfort. 

It’s no fun at all.

Every time you bend down or twist to the side, it hurts. It might be worse with movement, but the pain may even remain when you're horizontal and trying to rest, relax or sleep too. There's no escape. Plus, lower back pain is nearly always accompanied by stiffness and loss of mobility in the lower back area, making sports and other activities – like simply walking, cooking, gardening or cleaning virtually impossible without intense pain or frightening back spasms.

Often, it comes out of the blue, too – with no apparent reason for the pain or loss of mobility. One day you're playing tennis and chasing the children around. The next, you're almost entirely out of action, forced to do nothing. You try heat packs, ice packs, anti-inflammatories, and hot baths, but the pain and tightness remain steadfast. Nothing. Is. Helping. So much so that you start to think this is you for the rest of your life. "It must be old age," right?"

Don’t worry. We see this type of situation all the time. Lower BACK PAIN is one of the most common pain problems we treat at the BELLEFLEUR PHYSIOTHERAPY clinics.

And the most popular question all these patients ask is

“Why is This Happening to Me?”...

or

“Why Am I Still Suffering With Back Pain After Putting Up With It For 6 Months (Maybe More)?”

It's easy to think that your back pain will get better if you give it time - hoping that you'll wake up in a few days or weeks and feel like it never happened. But if you've already had pain for more than seven days, this scenario is unlikely. And if you do leave it, things are likely to get even worse.

Have you had back pain for more than seven days?

If you’ve been in pain for a while, you might have already been to see your family physician. But if you like most of the patients we see, they probably just sent you away with instructions to "rest," "take painkillers," and “come back in 6 weeks if nothing improves”.

Sadly, most patients end up back in the doctor's office after six weeks of continued pain and discomfort. But again, they’re given similar advice to "give it more time," "take these stronger painkillers," or "take more rest."

We believe life is too short to waste this much time, especially as there is so much we can do right away to help reduce and cure your lower back pain. This type of “watch and wait” advice is why so many people aged 45+ are living with chronic lower BACK PAIN and suffering the long-term health consequences of pain medications.

Are you confused about why you still have BACK PAIN?

So, what are some other reasons why your back pain is lasting longer than it should do? Well, it could be information overload – due to different theories on the source of your pain. Many people (qualified and unqualified) – especially on the internet, are more than happy to give out advice on back pain – but most of it isn’t credible. And sometimes, it can be dangerous.

If you haven’t suffered an obvious injury, you probably think the cause of your BACK PAIN is something you did but don't remember – like lifting something too heavy or straining it another way. But the most likely cause and the cause we often see in the Bellefleur clinics is weakened back and core muscles caused by poor posture over a long period. The lifting or straining just exacerbated the situation.

If you’re not an expert in BACK PAIN, it can be challenging to decipher the cause of your lower back pain and stiffness. That's why many people accept it as a natural part of ageing, but you don’t have to put up with it.

Are you living with back pain?

If You’re Currently Living With Back Pain, Here are 7 Reasons Why It Could Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:

  • Initially, you thought it would get better on its own – but it hasn’t
  • You consulted your doctor, who prescribed the usual "bed rest and painkillers," but as soon as you tried to get back to normal and stop taking the pills, the pain came back with a vengeance.
  • Friends told you that “everyone’s back hurts when they get older," so you went along with that idea and put up with it
  • You looked online for home remedies and tried some stretching exercises, but either they didn’t help, or they made the pain worse.
  • You consulted a host of different alternative health therapists with the promise of healing your pain, but it still hurts
  • You tried massage too – thinking your back pain and stiffness might be stress, but although you felt relaxed right afterwards, it didn't solve the problem, and you're still in pain
  • You tried one of the popular self-heating pads advertised as a cure for back pain, but it turned out to be more wasted $$

If any of this sounds familiar, we would love to help. Why not start with a call with one of our Physiotherapists to find out what we can do to help you resolve your BACK PAIN quickly. It doesn't matter if you've tried Physiotherapy before. We offer higher standards of care and more effective treatment at BELLEFLEUR PHYSIOTHERAPY. We’re confident we can help.

Remember, there is no obligation to book treatment after the call. It's an information call only. Whether or not you proceed to book a treatment session based on our advice is 100% up to you.

What Can I do to Get Rid of My Back Pain Quickly?...

Well, here's 4 things you can do:

  • First, you need to decide to get help. So many people put it off for too long, believing that back pain will "just get better on its own." But six months later, they're still enduring daily pain. It's no better – and sometimes it's even worse.
  • Next, perform the CORRECT exercises – performing a series of therapeutic exercises is a great way to ease your back pain, but you must do the right ones. A physiotherapist can teach you these exercises - the right way, so you don’t subject yourself to further injury. After performing these exercises consistently, you’ll be able to move your lower back freely again and your pain levels reduced.
  • Stay active and mobile – Have you tried to get up and move around after a day spent on the sofa? Yes, your whole body feels stiff and tight, doesn't it? Too much rest can exacerbate all types of pain, mainly back pain – as a strong and functional lower back is crucial for all kinds of movement. So, it’s beneficial to keep your lower back moving throughout the day to keep the muscles strong and to circulate all-important blood and oxygen.
  • Get expert, “hands-on” physiotherapy – Physiotherapy is by far the best way to resolve chronic back pain. At BELLEFLEUR PHYSIOTHERAPY, we help patients with back pain reduce their pain and improve lower back function every day. So if back pain is affecting your career, your relationships or your ability to perform daily tasks or participate in sports/hobbies, we can help.

If you would like to find out how the physiotherapy team at the BELLEFLEUR PHYSIOTHERAPY can help you get rid of the pain in your back – we invite you to visit us at our Beechwood or Orléans clinics for a free, no-obligation appointment:

Note: This free Discovery Visit is perfect for you if you feel nervous about having physiotherapy, want to explore the benefits or decide whether it’s right for you, with the help of one of our Physiotherapists. If that’s you, please book one of these no-obligation sessions to take the first step towards getting rid of your neck pain, once and for all. There is 0% financial risk on your part.

So the next question is:

“How Can Choosing to See a Physiotherapist at BELLEFLEUR PHYSIOTHERAPY Help You Get Rid of Your Back Pain?”

Here is a small sample of the things our Physiotherapy team can do for you:

  • We can help you find the source of your back pain and explain what's going on - usually within your first 60 minute visit
  • We know that back pain can keep you awake at night and “zap” your energy the next day – so we help you enjoy a good night's sleep again and get a boost in energy, even after the first session.
  • We strive to make sure that your problem is “healed” and “corrected” and educate you on preventing future reoccurrences.
  • We provide you with a set of therapeutic lower back exercises to do at home to help speed up recovery and keep your back flexible and pain-free.
  • We reduce the risk of you needing to pop pain pills, which may affect your long-term health.
  • We minimize the likelihood of needing dangerous spinal surgery – or uncomfortable steroid injections.
  • We may prevent you from having to see your doctor by diagnosing and treating your condition directly.
  • We help you enjoy life again and spend time with your partner, friends, and family again – without worrying about back pain.
  • We help you sit at your desk or in an armchair and go out walking or playing sport again without feeling that excruciating pain in your back.

In summary, we help you break free from the curse of chronic back pain.

Was NOT a believer in physio therapy. A frozen shoulder showed me that, the pain wasn't going to stop without it. Bellefleur Physiotherapy was recommended to me. It had been already 6 months of pain and suffering. Chris came to the rescue the difference it made from the second and third appointment was amazing. The receptionist are awesome ladies they take good care of you from beginning to end. No regrets I am now a believer in therapy and highly recommend this business you are in good hands here. Thank you Chris it still better every day.

I’ve been training with Meghan from Bellefleur Fitness for about 8 months now.Wow! What a difference it’s made in my life.There are not many people that I’d get up for at 6:15am to exercise with but she makes it so fun and is very supportive and encouraging.I remember crying in the car before I walked in the first day. I had lost my confidence and thought I was physically too far gone to be able to get fit again.Meghan caught me… and this week I lifted several personal bests! Who would have thought I’d be bench pressing in my 50’s - and loving it!If you are unsure, give her a call. If you are scared, give her a call. If it’s time to do something for yourself, give her a call.It’s never too late and you are worth it.You won’t regret it!CathyCatherine Priestman

Hello All, I have hardly written a review if I feel just right about the services.I broke my finger a year ago and I have not expected it will be recovered. However after 4 times at the Bellefleur physiotherapy (treated by Ms. Krystal), I can see that my little finger has been improved (flexibility and strength). I hope that after finishing the 6-treatments and hope over 80% improving.My lessons learned, Please don't leave your pain becomes a chronic and deteriorate your physical and mental health. I also appreciate the warm welcome, decent and kind manner of the operator lady and my physiotherapist.

I've been meaning to write a review for a few months. I tore a leg muscle back in the spring which resulted in a lower back and hip issue as well. I worked with Jason weekly to repair the leg, back and hip for about 4 months and happy to say that all is better and healed. Everything about my experience in dealing with this clinic was superb. The admin staff at the front desk were very helpful and happy, Jason knew exactly the treatment I needed to get my mobility back and provided me with exercise sheets for use at home in between appointments. His clinic does do direct billing. I highly recommend Bellefleur Physiotherapy.
I recently injured my back and contacted Bellefleur Physio for an appointment. They were able to fit me in the next day, and I was so relieved to be seeing someone.My PT Eric was very kind and knowledgable and provided his diagnosis with compassion. Communication was excellent during the whole visit, and he was great to answer any questions I had along the way.I have only just started my at-home exercises but am so impressed and thankful for the service provided by the team at Bellefleur. Thank you for helping me get on the road to recovery!

I'm very satisfied with the excellent care I received from Faiz at Bellefleur in Orléans. He was meticulous in his assessment of my injury and honest about what I needed in terms of long-term care. I would highly recommend Bellefleur.
Great experience at Bellefleur Physio! Reception staff was very kind, friendly, and helpful. I suffered from post concussion symptoms, and my physiotherapist Leo was there to help me with his great knowledge, professionalism and kindness, all the way through. The clinic itself is beautiful, inviting and impeccably clean, which I also appreciated. Highly recommend this place!!

My experience at Bellefleur Physiotherapy was just perfect. My therapist, Kristal , was excellent. The exercises she prescribed and the follow-up she provided had me pain free in just a few weeks. Kristal, as well as all the staff with which I had dealings over those few weeks were all very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, always.

Depuis quelques années, j’ai visité la clinique Bellefleur pour diverses raisons et j’ai travaillé avec 3 différents physiothérapeutes. À chaque fois j’ai été plus que satisfaite de leur service. Ma plus récente expérience est avec Érika et elle a été formidable. J’ai eu un accident et on m’a dit que ça pourrait me prendre un an pour retrouver ma mobilité. Après 7 visites avec elle, avec son encouragement, en appliquant ses recommandations, j’ai retrouvé 90% de ma mobilité. Je ne pourrais jamais la recommander assez. J’ai trouvé en elle, une personne chaleureuse et compétente.

Edit to update:My review is for the clinic, as a client i deserved better specially when i asked for more help, i sent separate feedback to the physio who i think is a nice person and may help her in future better for pp clients and in communication so that expectations can be well managed.i never mentioned anything about the physio anyway however it seemed the reply to my comment was taken otherwise. Even with below feedback my only hope is to help pp clients better than i was. I was lucky to eventually get help and treated so i figured this clinic could use this feedback to serve better, no hard feelings, its just the way i felt after attending many sessions religiously and following the exercise plan i was given. You can either feel u r doing it all right and there's nothing to improve amd thats fine. If not maybe try to analyze how you can help pp clients better.Pretentious that the clinic cares, failed to help my DR issue and the owner's resolution was a weak advice to keep trying the same thing. Not for postpartum pelvic floor physio if thats your goal. Find someplace better.

Nothing but wonderful things to say about my experience at Bellefeuille Physiotherapy! I was referred by my family doctor for pelvic floor physiotherapy, and let's be honest, I was far from thrilled at the idea of pelvic floor physio! Amanda Clément was amazing! She made me feel comfortable and I actually looked forward to my sessions with her. With her expertise, support and encouragement, I was able to resolve my issue within 5 sessions - and I was a huge skeptic going in. I wish I had gone to see Amanda earlier for help resolving my issue! Merci!

I received a lot of help from my physiotherapist, Amanda, since I start to visit three years ago. She is very fun, positive, knowledgeable and willing to help. The tightness caused by sitting for too long has improved a lot after doing the stretches and training that she gave me. The clinic itself is well-organized and clean. The staff are very nice. Would recommend!

I cannot recommend Amanda at the orleans location enough! She has helped tremendously with my postpartum recovery and I wish I had known about pelvic floor therapy with my first! Amanda was knowledgeable, kind and always kept me in the loop (the great conversations we had also made the experience better!)I went into my first appointment not knowing what/if I needed any treatment but I can confidently say my recovery was much easier after working with Amanda!Thank you again Amanda and the Bellefleur team!

I have only compliments for Bellefleur Physio in Orleans. From the courteous front staff who submit my claims (SO appreciate this) to the spotless environment, it is top notch. Although I had serious doubts that physio would help (I have been disappointed in the past), Dr Amanda Clement thoroughly explained the importance of pelvic floor strength, and that I should not have to accept what I assumed was early signs of aging — small leaks while sneezing or giving up on jogging, etc., The exercise videos she sent were clearly presented and explained and effective. Thank you so much for your expertise!

A wonderful business tucked away in Orleans. This is the best kept secret of Physio Clinics in Ottawa. Friendly staff, a space that was always clean, and ample parking.I worked with Amanda who is an absolute superstar. Initially, she helped me with my recovery post-surgery (appendectomy) and then later I went back for help with my TMJ/Jaw Pain since she was so helpful. I felt like Amanda could do it all and was a huge wealth of knowledge.Perhaps the best part is that my time with her felt like a team effort. She always provided suggestions of new things for me to try for pain management and homework in the form of exercises. I felt very engaged and involved in my own healing process with her support.I would definitely go back here for treatment, and highly recommend it to anyone interested!

I recently completed my pelvic floor program with Amanda. She was very kind, non-judgmental and supportive during my time with her. I had sling surgery recently but was still experiencing some pain and heaviness. She gave me lots of different exercises to do in a variety of situations. She councelled me regarding a second surgery. She suggested abit more time with physio to see if the surgery was really needed.....it wasn't, Pain is gone and heavinessis sooo much better. All the ladies and gents at Bellefleur Physiotherapy were amazing.

She is very client-centred and personable, and made me feel so comfortable and validated in my struggles. She meets clients where they are at and builds on their strengths to meet their PT goals. She also strives to continually be up to date on new research and ways to support her clients, which is so lovely!! Highly recommend her for anyone struggling with any pelvic floor issues, particularly after having a baby

I can't say enough great things about Bellefleur! Their clinic is beautiful, warm, inviting, and always 100% immaculate. Their reception staff is friendly and extremely helpful too! They are always on hand to help get my paraffin treatment going before my appointment even starts, which is awesome.Amanda is an amazing PT too--she is client-centred all the way and always able to quickly change gears or offer new treatments or strategies depending on what kind of day I'm having. You'll be lucky if she's on your team!When I was unsure about whether or not a new piece of equipment would be safe for me to use, Meghan and Jason not only lent me one that belongs to the studio but also personally drove it to my house and picked it up a week later, all at no cost to me. This is absolutely above and beyond any type of customer, client, or patient care & concern that I have ever experienced and I am forever grateful!
A great staff all around. I spent my time with Kyle V and he was great. Friendly, knowledgeable about what I needed to resolve my issues. While I hope I have completely resolved my issues I would for sure return to Bellefleur for any future treatments.

Margaret Runnalls was one of the kindest and skilled physiotherapists I've had the pleasure to help me. Although I couldn't quite pinpoint my issue, she asked as many questions as possible to support me during assessment and afterwards. Thanks again :).In general the place is slightly more costly than other physio places, but for the quality no bad price!!!

I had an absolutely excellent experience at Bellefleur Physiotherapy. After being diagnosed with subdeltoid bursitis last December, I had tried another physiotherapy clinic that really fell short of my expectations. At that location, I felt like I didn't matter...I was being "juggled around" by my physiotherapist with two or sometimes three other patients at the same time, and I felt like I wasn't getting the care I needed to heal properly.All of this changed drastically when I switched to Bellefleur Physiotherapy and started seeing Dominique for our physiotherapy sessions. From the first appointment, he demonstrated a very professional, caring, and supportive attitude, and prepared a plan right away to help manage my symptoms. He provided a realistic plan for when I could start to feel better, and answered any questions I had, all while making me feel like my pain mattered.It's been almost a year since I was diagnosed with subdeltoid bursitis, and I am so happy and grateful to report that my symptoms are a lot better, and I have Dominique to thank for this. He was an absolutely excellent, professional, and friendly physiotherapist and definitely exceeded my expectations, and I strongly believe that he deserves to be recognized for the care and attention that he provides for his patients. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any person I know who is struggling from pain and needs help dealing with their symptoms, since he is clearly someone who goes above and beyond in his work and really cares about helping people get better.All in all, I highly recommend Bellefleur Physiotherapy for anyone looking for excellent care in regards to managing their injuries and pain.

I came to Bellefleur with some issues related to one of my knees that was impacting my golf game. I met Maggie R who completed a thorough review of my strength and flexibility, then narrowed down my problem to a need to strength building. With a series of exercises to be completed every day, combined with weekly visit for some hands on physiotherapy, I was back to my normal game in a very short period of time. Maggie was focused, diligent and friendly - highly recommended.

I'm extremely thankful for Maggie, Physiotherapist at Bellefleur Physiotherapy, for helping me through a painful hip issue. Maggie's passion for her work was evident in all of the appointments that I attended. She took the time to fully address the issue which caused my discomfort and developed a targeted plan to help me achieve my goals. I noticed a major improvement after only a few appointments and within a few months, the pain was gone completely. In addition, the administrative team is very friendly and professional.

After breaking my leg this winter and having surgery I chose to see a physiotherapist at Bellefleur to get me walking again. I selected Maggie Runnals due to her availability that conveniently suited mine and I was amazed at the experience. First, I explained how insurance and cost were an issue for me and how I would like to minimize my visits as much as possible. Maggie prepared thorough exercise plans including levels of difficulty for me to increase and change my exercises as I improve without having to book additional visits. In addition, all the plans were provided virtually so I could keep track of my progress and visually see how to movements should be performed. 2 visits later, I am glad to say I have returned to me usual activities pre-broken leg! I will continue to see Bellefleur physio and in particular Maggie Runnels should I require their service in the future

When I first reached out to Bellefleur Physio I was in lots of pain. My neck and lower back were a constant problem. With my first virtual appointment with Jason and some of the suggestions and exercises he provided made a difference right way. I can now say that I have been able to do things that I enjoy such as gardening and walking regularly without pain. He has given me the tools to relieve the pain that would often limit my day to day activities.I would recommend Bellefleur Physiotherapy to anyone that is experiencing any physical pain. Reach out and you will be happy that you did!!

Maggie was the first physio that has ever "gotten" me. She understood my needs and ensured that my homework was appropriate for my personality. (I struggle with doing physio homework. She figured me out and worked with me!)I've never been sad to be finished a treatment. I'll miss you, Maggie! 🙂

What a lovely experience all around - a great office, clean, homey and well organized. Wonderful staff who are pleasant and engaged. I love that you can bill direct to my insurance. I have just started working with Maggie and it's been a real pleasure so far. She is very thorough and has put me at ease, especially in regards to a psoriasis flare up that has made me very nervous about having any treatment that involves baring my skin. Thank you so much. I look forward to continuing with your business.

I highly recommend Bellefleur Physiotherapy in Orleans. Maggie was my therapist and she is very skilled and knowledgeable. Thanks to her attention to detail in every session, I was able to recover very quickly. I was amazed by how much improvement I had in each visit. Most of all, she is very kind and encouraging, and she made the recovery process surprisingly enjoyable!The staff are friendly, having private rooms was nice, and the online platform for exercises was very useful. As well, they are very careful to observe all Covid-19 protocols. Overall, it was a great experience, and Maggie was excellent!

I have been visiting this clinic over the past few months due to multiple injuries. I was paired with (Dave , owner). After the first few sessions I immediately felt relief in the affected areas. His experience and expertise quickly pin pointed the source. Definitely the best physiotherapist I have dealt with. His dry needling techniques are second to none.Thanks for everything Dave. What a great family owned business.

I found Amanda while searching for a pelvic floor physiotherapist. Once we had that under control, we moved onto issues with my hip (both connected, of course!) and I must say that I have not felt this good since 2010, when I injured my hip! She did some work on my hip while in the clinic, she gave me exercises to do at home, and she encouraged me to get out walking - with all of her help and advice, I feel fantastic!!Also, the front desk staff is amazing. Kind, patient, courteous, welcoming.Fice stars, Amanda and Bellefleur!

Given my circumstances during the Pandemic, I needed virtual physiotherapy for my injured right hand and broken finger. Eric Methot-Curtis proved to be the perfect "virtual" physiotherapist. His in-depth knowledge and clear communications style made for excellent, productive sessions. And he was always available, even on the weekends! Highly recommend Eric and the Clinic!

I highly recommend this place as I was assisted with respect and care. The private rooms are awesome for one on one care unlike other places that take care of you in open areas with curtains and you hardly know who is the therapist. It was hard to let go as I will miss the friendly staff and a therapist who loves engaging in a conversation. Please don’t look elsewhere, this is the place.Thanks Dave and your team!!

Since getting a total knee replacement on October 26/20 I have received 7 physio treatments from Dom at Bellefleur and have seen immense improvement. I will be continuing physio treatments here for some time but am sure of positive results in the end. He is extremely knowledgeable and well educated in his field, and answers any and all questions. If you do everything they tell you to do you will be back on your bike, doing proper squats in the gym and/or playing pickle ball, etc. All the staff is very polite and friendly and do their best to accommodate you in any way. I highly recommend them for your physio needs. Thanks Dom!

Many thanks to the Bellefleur Physiotherapy team, especially Dior and Dominique for being so caring and knowledgeable in my path to a complete recovery. I have been to another physio clinic several years ago that had left me very cold to the physio therapy process, but this clinic stands heads above everyone else. Once again many thanks for your compassion and professionalism.

My son had the Osgood Slatter disease and he could not play his favourite sport anymore ( soccer). I found Bellefleur Physiotherapy over the net and in only 6 or seven sessions, my son could walk and run without pain.The team is welcoming and very professional. The socail distancing was always observed. On particular Lady named Dior really impressed me by her professionalism. She knew how to connect with my son and provide him with specific activities based on his interests.My son , 2 months earlier, could not play soccer. He in back at school and on the fields. Thanks Bellefleur physiotherapy!!

Tendinitis of my shoulder had gotten progressively worse and ONLINE physiotherapy with Amanda Clement eliminated the excruciating pain I had been living with for a few months. Amanda’s plan for my treatment was to go nice & slow at the onset, choose very specific exercises, modify them when warranted and/or introduce new ones. A written description of these exercises was sent to me by email along with videos showing the correct method to do them. That was a tremendous help. Amanda listened attentively to my concerns, answered precisely all my questions, reassured me and gave me confidence. I owe her a debt of gratitude and I recommend her wholeheartedly. She is a true professional, calm, very knowledgeable in her chosen field, reassuring and trustworthy. What is also very impressive is that my treatment with her was done exclusively ONLINE.

When I broke my elbow in a bicycle crash earlier this summer I had to watch as my summer rock climbing goals seemed to melt out from beneath me. I started working with Amanda Clément (PT) just two weeks after my accident and, thanks to her diligence, attention to detail, and empathic abilities, started seeing improvement almost immediately. She performed a very thorough assessment and prescribed a perfectly tailored exercise program. Our sessions were by far the most painful experiences in physiotherapy of my life but, ultimately, they were exactly what my arm needed. Just seven weeks after hammering into the pavement, I went climbing for the first time without issue. Amanda truly loves what she does; this is most apparent by her level of investment in her clients' healing. Thanks again, Amanda 🙂

Amanda assessed my back issues pretty quickly as to what the issue was and provided a few exercises for me to try. Realizing what the issue was she helped me strengthen secondary muscles that supported my bodies movement and alleviated the stresses I had been having. I can sleep better at night and function better during the day knowing better about how my body works. Chiropractic and massage therapy helped the symptoms but couldn’t fix the issue. Amanda did fix my problem and I thank her for her help.

Bellefleur Physiotherapy has become our family's choice of therapists based on our unique individual physiotherapy requirements. They take the time to assess your injury and educate you through various platforms, the type of injury and impact the injury has on your physiology which leaves you with a better understanding. They customize programs taking into consideration the individuals mobility limitations and pain tolerances. From the professional personnel in the reception area, to the caring and knowledgeable therapists, I am very comfortable in saying that they have had a positive impact on my sciatica recovery. I do highly recommend Bellefleur Physiotherapy to those who prefer a more competent, knowledgeable, compassionate and professional physiotherapy experience.

J’apprécie beaucoup la clinique Bellefleur Physiotherapy à cause du professionnalisme des phytothérapeutes intervenant en son sein. Je veux spécialement apprécier le professionnalisme de Amanda. Elle m’a donné de l’espoir quant au mal qui m’a amenée à cette clinique. J’étais au bout du désespoir à cause de mon mal du bas de dos. Mais depuis qu’elle a commencé par me donner des soins, je me sens de mieux en mieux bien. La douleur est presque partie en moins de 2 mois de soins. Et j’ai repris espoir. Amanda a un professionnalisme de quelqu’un qui a plus de 15 ans d’experience dans la pratique, alors qu’elle est jeune dans la profession.Je suis fière de choisir la clinique Bellefleur Physiotherapy Orleans(ON) pour mes soins

I was experiencing pain in the right side of my neck running down into my shoulder for about two months. Finally, I decided I had to stop popping pain pills and start looking for physio. I checked out the online reviews for several centres and found the positive responses for Bellefleur Physiotherapy. I'm glad that I did! It's true, all the staff are very nice and always have a smile for you, a positive experience once you walk in the door.My physiotherapist Amanda, was fantastic, outgoing personality but serious when it came to being there to help! She quickly narrowed down the problem and by the second visit my pain was gone!. She worked with me providing a treatment of exercises, along with massaging out the knots. She was very concerned that I progressed each week and changed up the routine. Amanda even suggested what my personal trainer at the gym could look for, along with future neck and back muscle building in my exercise sessions.Bellefleur Physiotherapy provided what was in my best interest and didn't push extra sessions. I do plan to return for follow up given my positive experience with them.As a side note, if you are a dog lover you will love the stories about Amanda's two dogs, I certainly did.

Having had chronic elbow tendonitis that suddenly worsened over the summer, I decided to try Bellefleur Physiotherapy on the advice of a friend. I had experience with physiotherapy elsewhere, and I was unsure about trying physio again because I have an underlying condition that seemed to interfere with healing in the past. However, my experience with Bellefleur and physiotherapist Dior has been very positive! The staff are friendly and Dior is very professional, gentle, and knowledgeable. My elbow gradually improved and has recovered the strength and mobility that it has not had for a very long time. I am thrilled that I can do so much without any pain, and I unreservedly recommend Bellefleur Physiotherapy and Dior.

As an injured Veteran, I have had to use Physiotherapy frequently in my career and I have discovered that Physiotherapy practices are not all equal.A fresh approach to Physiotherapy where the patient receives a full 30 minute manual therapy in a private room is something that I have never seen elsewhere.Jason & Dave Bellefleur have raised the bar in Physiotherapy and we all benefit from physiotherapy which puts the patients interests first.

The best clinic and therapist in the world. They care and do not let you hanging with Dr Ho's stuff and do nothing like the other clinics. They take great care of you, give you a treatment plan and provide excellent hands on treatment. My family and I have been with them literally since day one. I have seen them grow and evolve through the years with the same level and even better customer service which is sometime hard to do but they did. They are also involved in the community. One of the brothers also provides dry needling sessions. Dry needling is hardcore stuff but it helps a lot and you have better results I believe. Tell them you want to book a voodoo session with Dave and they'll get it. I am honest in telling you that it hurts like hell but provides amazing and fast results. They saved and helped both of my sons with bad leg fractures and commotions. On my end they also saved me from being paralyzed sending me immediately to the ER when they noticed something wrong with my spine.

High level of professionalism from the front desk to the one-on-one with the physiotherapist. All concerns were addressed and all goals evaluated and re-evaluated as I progressed with the exercises and sessions.Office is clean and well managed, rooms are a good size (although they make good use of the hallway for extra space for movement), parking is abundant.

Very impressed with this clinic! One on one care, private rooms and focus on exercises instead of simply pain modalities were my main reasons for choosing Bellefleur. Staff is young, friendly, professional and welcoming. My therapist Dior was very knowledgeable, kind, gentle, encouraging and quick to adapt/modify exercises that I wasn`t able to do fully initially. After about 12 treatments, my miniscus injury is close to 100% improved and I don`t think that would have happened so quickly without her guidance. Thanks to Dior, to the front desk staff! This will be my go to clinic if further issues arise!

I think that Eric at Bellefleur Physiotherapy is the best physiotherapist hands down. I needed a vestibular assessment and went to my local physiotherapy clinic and am so glad I did.The front desk staff are on the ball, polite, friendly, accommodating and helpful. I learned that Eric does these assessments and went to see him.My first appointment was just over an hour and he took detailed notes and very patiently walked me through several poses to see just how bad/good my balance turned out to be. From his point of view it was treatable with exercise and so he led me though some different ones. At first they were very hard to do without falling one way or feeling nauseated but with time and practice I can now do them with ease and don't worry as much about turning quickly. He gave me exercises that I can incorporate into my day and that don't seem onerous.I also needed help with pain in my neck and back from arthritis and have learned some very useful posture correcting exercises that really help.Overall, this clinic is well run - I never have to wait and I always get Eric's full attention which is rare in physiotherapy clinics.Eric is very attentive, encouraging and does not make you do exercises that are too strenuous or cause any pain and they really work!Well done, Bellefleur Physiotherapy!!
Super friendly and professional Team, clean space and a lot of parking spots.
