PART

PART (Prevention, Accidents, Rehabilitation, Therapy) is a program that meets the needs of employers and employees of the area, with respect to rehabilitation of injured workers and prevention of work-related accidents.

The rehabilitation of injured workers entails early, intensive, active and personalized interventions. The program also includes prevention: offering education sessions like work site analysis, workshops on back care, conditioning exercise programs and any other activities the employer might request.
Although the PART clinic was established to improve services to the victims of work-related accidents, it is open to everyone.

Brief History
The clinic opened its doors on March 8, 1994. It was first implemented to give injured workers, ready access to physiotherapy services that promote a proactive approach that meets the specific needs of workers. The plan of treatment is therefore based on the nature of the injury and the job-related functions.

Treatments
It is recommended to start treatment as soon as possible after the accident or at the onset of the symptoms. Starting treatment early reduces the risk of complications and shortens rehabilitation time.

Why should you consult us?
To help relieve pain, regain normal movement of joints and normal muscle strength, promote healing after an injury, minimize the risk of complications, help you resume your normal activities sooner and minimize the risk of recurrence of the symptoms.

On the first visit, we assess your physical condition to determine the precise nature of your problem, the severity of the injury and the degree of disability the injury has produced. This assessment enables us to prepare a plan of treatment that could include any of the following:

  • application of heat
  • manual therapy
  • stretching exercises 
  • education
  • electrical nerve stimulation
