We are pleased to offer the following therapies

Manual Therapy

Is the use of hands on techniques used to restore mobility and improve the biomechanics around surrounding joints and tissues. These techniques may include spinal and peripheral joint mobilizations or manipulation, muscle energy techniques, myofacial release, soft tissue mobilization, and neural mobilization. Manual therapy techniques are used for sport physio treatments and for a variety of orthopaedic injuries.

Exercise therapy with MPR

Retraining the muscles to support joints by optimizing their function and performance is the key to successful rehabilitation. Exercise therapy is the use of exercises to rehabilitate injures. This includes retraining strength, flexibility, coordination, proprioception and correcting postural alignment by using proper movement strategies. This will ensure your body is in the best possible shape to return to pre-injury activities and sports. Prevention is also a focus for our physiotherapists. Before you start a new activity having a functional assessment screen or seeking advice can help identify potential problems before they happen.

Core stability training

Involves training of muscles located between the diaphragm and the pelvic floor. Retraining the endurance and activation of these muscles are important for supporting the joints in the lumbar spine and pelvis. Good support in the joints is essential for improving the function and movement in the lumbar spine and for treating lower back pain. The deep muscles in the core include transversus abdominis, multifidus, the pelvic floor and diaphragm. Core stability training is an essential part of your orthopaedic and sport physio treatments. Core stability training is a key component of exercise therapy.

Selective Functional Movement Assessment

Provides a systematic method of analysing 7 fundamental movement patterns which are known to contribute to musculoskeletal pain. The assessment will systematically help find the cause of symptoms and identify the root cause as either a mobility or stability/motor control issue. This is useful to help screen your movements for injury prevention prior to starting an exercise program. The assessment can also play a role in your treatments by ensuring the correction of all your movement patterns and long standing problems.

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS)

FMS is an innovative assessment tool used by movement specialists to help better evaluate how well your body moves. It not only helps quantify how well you move but also identifies any limitations or imbalances to your basic movement patterns. You should expect your therapist to take you through seven fundamental movements that challenge your body’s mobility and stability. Afterwards your therapist will go over your results and provide you solutions to any problems that were identified by the screen. The result is improved performance.

Therapeutic modalities

These are therapeutic devices used to help decrease pain and inflammation in surrounding tissue to help enhance healing. These may include Interferential Current, TENS, Muscle Stimulator or Ultrasound therapy.

Mechanical Traction

When appropriate, Mechanical traction is used to decompress the discs and the joints in the cervical and lumbar spine. This may help relieve pain from excessive joint or nerve compression.


is used as a physiotherapy modality as a way to improve natural healing, and decrease pain. It involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points in the body. These points are determined by a thorough physiotherapy assessment to determine the cause of the pain. This approach is called Anatomical acupuncture which is practiced by western trained acupuncture therapists. Our therapists are trained through the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute which is a body who trains health care professionals to apply acupuncture within their scope of practice. It is believed to work by releasing endorphins; these are hormones which are naturally produced in the body. They help decrease pain by blocking painful pathways from the body to the brain which allows the body to restore biochemical balance and stimulate the bodies’ natural healing ability.

Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS)

While there are similarities to acupuncture, intramuscular stimulation (IMS) involves inserting fine needles into shortened muscles to help release muscle tension. The goal is to release shortened muscles to take the pressure away from compressed nerve structures. This is one tool we can use to help improve bio-mechanics and restore optimal function.

Knowing what to do at the appropriate time will greatly help improve the speed and quality of healing of musculoskeletal injuries. Our therapists will explain and answer any questions you have regarding your injury. This knowledge will empower you to become an active participant in your rehabilitation.

Sports Therapy

Sport Physio is treatment for sports injuries which includes a detailed biomechanical assessment to determine the nature of the injury. This may include injuries arising from a traumatic acute onset, repetitive overuse or post surgical rehabilitation. Correcting biomechanical faults through manual therapy, specifically exercise prescription along with movement pattern retraining will help balance the body in order to overcome an injury.

Athletic Taping: Taping is used to help provide support, improve alignment and providing stability to the surrounding tissues. Taping includes using a wide variety of various types of tape to facilitate recovery. Athletic taping has a variety of applications such as being used to stabilize an ankle for a soccer game, supporting the upper back for postural correction, or supporting a knee ligament strain.

Pre-Natal and Post Partum Rehabilitation

The body goes through many changes when preparing for a baby. During the Pre-Natal stage, ligaments start to stretch more and postural alignment changes to accommodate the growing fetus. This can lead to a number of varying symptoms such as low back pain, SI joint pain, round ligament pain, sciatica, joint instability and pelvic floor muscle dysfunction during the pre-natal or post partum period. Physiotherapy treatment can help with alignment and stability of the core to reduce and minimize pain, improve function and prevent further injury. Preventative exercises are beneficial to strengthen the body for the preparation of labour. During the post partum period physiotherapy will help condition the body for repetitive lifting and carrying postures as well as breast feeding postures.

Post Operative Mastectomy Care

Restriction of shoulder range of motion can be caused by excessive scar tissue formation at the incision. When the body creates too much scar it can stick and bind to other soft tissue such as muscle, skin, and tendons. This stops how much the shoulder can move and restricts shoulder mobility.

Lymph (scar tissue) can form within lymph vessel, and cording can occur due to excessive scar tissue in the lymph vessel. This will also contribute to restriction in shoulder mobility

Physiotherapy treatment includes scar mobilization, manual therapy stretching, range of motion exercise, and self stretches for increasing flexibility, restoring mobility, and preventing further restrictions.
