Successful Completion of Advanced Vestibular Course by Cheryl Wylie

We would like to announce that Cheryl Wylie, our Physiotherapy Clinic Practice Leader at Ross Rehabilitation, has successfully completed the Vestibular Rehabilitation: A Competency Based Course. This intense, evidence-based, six-day course is held in Atlanta, Georgia and co-sponsored by Emory University and the American Physical Therapy Association. Skills learned and perfected include: oculomotor examination with emphasis on the identification of nystagmus and canal involvement; balance and gait, fall risk, and functional assessments; and treatment procedures for BPPV, unilateral and bilateral peripheral vestibular disorders, and central vestibular disorders includes traumatic brain injury and stroke.

Cheryl has been working with vestibular patients since 2012, and has been able to hone her skills in this field of rehabilitation. Completion of this intense course has allowed further personal and professional growth in vestibular rehabilitation for Cheryl, and she is excited to use her knowledge and skill set to continue to help those suffering from dizziness and imbalance disorders.

Group Hydrotherapy Class has MOVED!

pool-physioRoss Rehabilitation’s group hydrotherapy class is now being offered at Dalewood Recreational Center! This newly renovated pool is home to our weekly group classes running every Wednesday from 1:15-2:15pm.

Hydrotherapy uses the principles of water and buoyancy to allow increased movement than may be permitted on land. Due to less gravitational force, there is less stress on weight bearing joints such as the hips and knees, and less stress on our spine. The benefits are numerous and include:

  • Pain relief
  • Reduction in muscle spasms
  • Increased joint range of motion
  • Strengthening of weakened muscles
  • Increased circulation
  • Improvement of balance and coordination

If you are interested in participating in our group hydrotherapy class, contact Cheryl Wylie, Physiotherapy Clinic Practice Leader, at 905-777-9838 or cherylw@rossrehab.com.

Ross Rehabilitation Group Hydrotherapy Class
Location: Dalewood Recreational Center, 1150 Main St. W. Hamilton, ON L8S 1C2
Time: Every Wednesday 1:15-2:15pm

Ross Rehabilitation Presents in Anatomy 101 Hosted by the Hamilton Medical Legal Society

The Ross Rehabilitation team presented in the recent Anatomy 101 held by the Hamilton Medical Legal Society on September 22, 2016. The session focused on concussion education, and Ross Rehabilitation presented on First Assessment by Physiotherapy.

The session included education on the various aspects of a physiotherapy assessment including vision, vestibular, autonomic, neurocognitive, and orthopaedic. Near Point Convergence and Vestibular-Ocular Reflex testing was demonstrated, which gave participants an opportunity to see and experience testing that concussion patients undergo.

logo_mainpage_webWe would like to thank the Hamilton Medical Legal Society for having us, and look forward to further collaborative education of concussion rehabilitation in the Hamilton community!
