The Importance of Hydration During Exercise

The amount of water in the human body ranges from 50-75% and when we exercise it’s extremely important that we replenish the fluids that we use to keep our body working hard. Here is a visual guide as a quick reminder on how much water to consume before, during, and after your workout.

Leading The Way With “FOTO”

It says it in our name – we pride ourselves on leading the way in new industry initiatives and practices. That’s why our clinics were the first in Canada to use¬†FOTO¬†(Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes). Here’s how “FOTO” is defined by our friends at the Canadian Physiotherapy Association
This is an outcome measure used to objectively determine the baseline function of a patient at the beginning of treatment. Once treatment has commenced, the same measure can be used to determine progress and treatment efficacy.

Outcome measures provide a means to define treatment goals and track patient progress. Physiotherapists have been using them for many years to great effect. In fact, physiotherapists lead in the use of outcome measures across Canada. But we’re not sharing them, and that means the collective data isn’t being maximized.

That’s why CPA has partnered with Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes, Inc. (FOTO) to be the exclusive provider of data collection and reporting services for a rehabilitation functional outcome-based registry for CPA members.
So, what does this mean for us, and more importantly, for our patient’s? In short, this allows us more control over how we can effectively treat our patients over time – and by tracking progress, patient satisfaction, and recording results in a database, we are storing valuable information for future use. This helps you, the patient, by knowing you are getting the best treatment as we reference previous cases just like yours, and how they were dealt with.

What excites us most are new initiatives just like this. Bettering our clinics by gathering, recording, and using valuable information to rehabilitate the varied conditions we see each day, across all of our clinics.

We look forward to bringing more like this, your way. Improving, evolving and […]
