We take time for each of our clients to ensure a thorough assessment is performed. It is of great importance to us to educate the client about the nature of the injury, the treatment plan and set up a personalized (home) exercise program. Depending on your condition, we may treat you with the below techniques:
Intramuscular Stimulations (IMS)
Active Release Techniques (ART) ®
WCB, ICBC, MSP, DVA and Private clients Welcome
Manual therapy, or manipulative therapy, is a physical
treatment for musculoskeletal pain and disability; it most commonly includes kneading and manipulation of muscles,
joint mobilization and joint manipulation.
Therapeutic exercise is a bodily movement prescribed to
correct impairment, improve musculoskeletal function, or
maintain a state of well-being. It may vary from highly
selected activities restricted to specific muscles or parts
of the body, to general and vigorous activities that can return
a convalescing patient to the peak of physical condition.
Physiotherapy acupuncture techniques are derived from traditional Chinese medicine. A physiotherapist will assess your specific musculoskeletal impairments, for example:
Decreased range of motion
Poor pattern of movement
Increased tone in muscles
Kinesiology is the scientific study of human body movement addressing the physiological, biomechanical, and psychological principles of movement. A Registered Kinesiologist’s goal is to create a more efficient and effective road to injury recovery
through movement and active rehabilitation. Kinesiologists
work in close relationship with other healthcare professionals
such as Physiotherapists and Chiropractors to provide the
client with the best possible care.
IMS uses the same types of needles as acupuncture.
The physiotherapist assesses the patient for range of motion
and functional movement patterns. The physiotherapist then palpates the muscles on the area of impairment to locate
trigger points. Trigger points are taught bands within a muscle
that cause movement dysfunction and pain.
Vestibular physiotherapy is an exercised based program
designed to treat problems of the inner ear associated with
poor balance, vertigo and dizziness.
Vestibular disorders are invisible, hard to diagnose and
provoke dizziness, unsteadiness or trouble focusing with
even the simplest of activities: rolling over in bed, scrolling
on a computer, looking back and forth between people in a conversation, going around a corner too fast, walking on soft ground, grocery shopping or being in a vehicle.
Kinesio & Athletic Taping
Kinesio taping is a method of therapeutic taping that
aids with rehabilitation. Through special tape properties
as well as a unique application process learned by certified practitioners, kinesio tape assists individuals of all ages
and skills levels return to activity, everyday tasks and
sport quickly after injury.
Ultrasound, laser, hot/cold therapy can be used to reduce pain and inflammation, stimulate microcirculation, break down scar tissue and aid in the mobilization of joints and surrounding tissue.
A concussion is caused from a direct or indirect hit to the head or body, making the brain rock back and forth inside the skull. The signs and symptoms of a concussion may be subtle and may not be immediate. Concussions may or may not involve loss of consciousness. Either a direct blow to the head, face, neck or elsewhere on the body with an impulsive force transmitted to the head typically results in the rapid onset of short-lived impairment of neurological functions that resolves spontaneously.
Graston Technique has recently started to grow in popularity since its introduction to the rehabilitation community the mid-1990s. It uses a set of 6 specialized stainless steel tools of different sizes and shapes to address dysfunction in soft tissue (anything in the musculoskeletal system other than bone and cartilage).
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction can be caused by:
HYPOTONICITY (Weak pelvic floor muscles): contributing to stress incontinence, urge incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. Incontinence is NOT a normal part of aging
HYPERTONICITY (Tight pelvic floor muscles): contributing to Urinary and Fecal Urgency, Urge Incontinence, Chronic Pelvic Pain, Dyspareunia, Vaginismus, Vulvodynia, Pudendal Neuralgia, Interstitial Cystitis and Chronic Prostatitis
We are proud to offer home physiotherapy sessions for those clients that struggle getting into our office.
