Manual therapy is a hands on physiotherapy technique that includes gentle joint mobilizations and soft tissue release techniques to restore joint range of motion and facilitate fluid, pain free movement.
Pain Relief Modalities
Electrotherapy treatment options such as TENS, interferential and ultrasound, are applied to alleviate pain, reduce muscle spasm, decrease inflammation and stimulate healing in combination with physiotherapy.
Spinal Decompression / Traction
A mechanical decompression/distraction force is gently applied to your spine through either manual (therapist) or mechanical (spinal traction bed) measures to relieve pressure on your nerves, discs and joints.
Sport Injury Rehabilitation
We have certified Sport Med physicians and physiotherapists on staff to ensure your injury is managed with best practice techniques for a safe and timing return to hobby or play. Our sports physiotherapists will perform a detailed assessment to determine the mechanism of injury (trauma vs. slow insidious onset), extent of damage (specific musculoligamentous stress tests) and identification of contributing factors such as postural asymmetries, specific weakness, or training errors.
Graston Technique is an instrument-assisted therapeutic physiotherapy treatment used by therapists in order to treat conditions related to skeletal, muscle and soft tissue injuries. This consists of 6 stainless steel instruments of different shapes and sizes used for soft tissue mobilization that lets therapists effectively break down scar tissue and connective tissue restrictions. The technique is designed to detect and treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
Shockwave therapy is the single most effective technique for calcific tendonitis and chronic soft tissue conditions such as tennis elbow and plantar fasciitis, among other conditions. The tool releases a series of acoustic wave pulsations to the problem area, through the client’s skin via a gel medium.

Vertigo, Dizziness & Concussion Rehab
Dizziness and vertigo account for up to 10% of all doctor visits. The source of these complaints is often difficult to identify, but can be related to head trauma (motor vehicle accidents, falls), ear infections and age-related factors to name a few.
Injury-Specific Exercise Therapy
Not all exercises are the same and depending on your specific diagnosis, you will want to avoid certain movements while focusing on a specific set of exercises. Following a thorough musculoskeletal examination, your physiotherapist will develop an injury-specific home exercise program that could accelerate your rehabilitation.
Taping techniques are used effectively to:
This technique can be very effective immediately following an injury to reduce inflammation and prevent further injury and is also used during rehab to restore joint mechanics and optimize your rehabilitation.
Following surgery, the goal of physiotherapy is to optimize your healing and realize the full potential of your surgical procedure. Treatment will focus on restoring range of motion, re-activating specific musculature with neuromuscular stimulation and surgical-specific exercises and decreasing your pain with electrotherapy or other modalities. Surgeries that benefit from post-surgical rehab include:
