Physiotherapy

When you’re experiencing pain that’s preventing you from making the most of your everyday, physiotherapy can get you back to doing more of what matters, like:

  • Playing with your grandkids

  • Dancing with your spouse

  • Working in your garden

  • Walking your dogs

  • Playing the sport you love

 

Whether you’re struggling with a sports injury, chronic pain, or an injury from an accident, we’ll help lead you on the path to recovery. We know the process can be overwhelming, but we’re here to support you and prevent the same injury from reoccurring.

Conditions we treat:

  • Joint, muscle, and nerve-related pain

  • Acute or chronic pain

  • Prenatal or postpartum pain and discomfort

  • Injuries from motor-vehicle accidents

  • Work-related injuries

  • Sports injuries

  • Repetitive strain injuries

  • Decreased mobility

  • Balance difficulties

  • Pre-surgical and post-surgical pain

 

We design specialized exercise programs for:

  • Chronic health conditions

  • Neuromuscular impairment

  • Injury prevention 

  • Postural correction training

Each treatment includes a blend of the following techniques:

  • Manual therapy: We’ll use hands-on techniques to help stiff joints move more freely, restore flexibility and relieve pain.

  • Therapeutic movement: We’ll get you moving with gentle exercises that relieve pain, build strength, and move the body in harmony from head to toe.

  • Pilates-based strengthening exercises: We'll use the principles of Pilates to focus on building core strength, flexibility, and optimal posture.

  • Active release and soft tissue techniques: We’ll relieve tension in your muscles and fascial tissue through hands-on massage techniques.

  • Therapeutic taping: We'll use taping techniques to support injured tissue and help remind the brain to control the movement of joints after an injury.

  • Acupuncture: Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine that restores blood flow and decreasing swelling. We use fine needles into the body to calm the nervous system and kickstart the healing process.

  • Dry needling: This technique is very close to acupuncture. Fine needles are inserted into tense or injured muscles to relieve pain/tension and promote healing.
