Physical therapy is an essential component in managing acute, recurrent or chronic medical conditions (cardiovascular, neurologic or respiratory), complaints or disabilities. It is proven to be effective for various types of musculoskeletal causes of pain involving the neck, back, shoulders, elbows, hips, knees or ankles. It is also effective for rehabilitation after surgeries or post stroke or other cardiovascular or neurological conditions. At the Family Care Clinic, we stress high importance on offering evidence-based physiotherapy sessions for our patients in need.
The dietitian at the Family care clinic offers dietary treatment programs including counseling and advice about dietary changes for management of medical conditions.
The program is divided into different parts. First, a routine nutritional assessment is conducted which involves determining medical and family history; obtaining a food recall to identify the dietary habits of the patient; and anthropometric measurements using advanced technology to identify height, weight, fat, water and muscle composition. After conducting and evaluating a nutritional assessment of the patient, the clinical nutritionist might also collaborate with the family doctor at the Family Care Clinic to determine what diet is appropriate based on the diagnosis and treatment protocol given for that patient. Accordingly, she recommends a dietary meal plan which includes the types, quantity and portion size of foods to be consumed daily. She focuses on offering a diet that balances the patient’s desires for food preferences with medical needs and patient’s quality of life. As the patient’s health progresses, the dietitian adjusts the patient’s diet plan.
