About Synergy Phiysio + Pilates

A lot of therapists talk about practicing an integrated, system-wide, holistic, whole body, whole person or total body approach to physiotherapy. These “catch phrases” do hold actual meaning. But without a purposeful framework to direct the therapist, these catch phrases are simply words on a page. Masking what a True integrated approach looks like.

Our TrueWholeBody™ approach, which utilizes our proprietary assessment & treatment models, provides a framework that delivers a True integrated experience.

At Synergy Physio + Pilates, we define healing by focusing on you as a whole, not just your symptoms. Dr. Linda-Joy (LJ) Lee’s unique methods, ConnectTherapy™ and the Thoracic Ring Approach™ are designed to uncover the root causes of your discomfort. Using a robust algorithm (LJ’s Drivers Diagnostic Chart™), we ensure continuity of care is first and foremost, with this algorithm informing each modality that may be employed throughout your treatment regime. In other words, the assessment and treatment process is not “siloed.” Our process offers you a True integrated approach.

We see each pain as a story, an integral part of your life’s narrative. Our team delves into the interconnectedness of your body, ensuring personalized care that addresses the source of your discomfort, not just the symptoms.

Frequently asked questions

How can physiotherapy help with sports injuries?

Sports injuries require specialized care, and our physiotherapy team in North Vancouver is adept at treating such injuries. We focus on not just alleviating pain but also on understanding the underlying cause of your injury. Our treatment plans, which may include exercises, manual therapy, and movement analysis, are designed to expedite your recovery, enhance your performance, and prevent future injuries, helping you get back to the sport you love with confidence.

Can physiotherapy assist in managing chronic pain?

Absolutely! More importantly – we can help you move beyond “pain management” to actually finding and treating the causes of your chronic pain. We’ll give you tools to make lasting change.

Our TrueWholeBody™ approach will change inputs to your nervous system and help you move out of “chronic pain”. It is very common when you have chronic pain that your thorax – your thoracic rings – have not been comprehensively assessed, and it is equally common that this thoracic dysfunction is continuing to put you into a state of nervous system “fight or flight”… making it hard to move forward.

ConnectTherapy enables our Team to fully assess your whole body and help you understand the connections between all your symptoms and take control of them by targeting your Drivers with the right combination of hands-on therapy, exercise training, and tools to treat yourself to help you achieve long-term relief and improve your quality of life in North Vancouver.

How long does a typical physiotherapy treatment session last?

At Synergy Physio + Pilates, a typical session lasts about 45 to 60 minutes. However, the duration can vary depending on your specific needs and the type of treatment being administered so may be shorter or longer. We ensure each session is tailored to provide the most benefit to your health and recovery.

Is physiotherapy covered by insurance in North Vancouver?

Yes, many insurance plans in Canada cover physiotherapy services. We recommend checking with your insurance provider for details about your coverage. At Synergy Physio + Pilates, we can also assist with direct billing for certain insurance plans, making the process easy and convenient for you. Feel free to contact us for more information.
