Physiotherapy focuses on enhancing or restoring the body’s systems through the science of movement.
The following is an example of the different types of physiotherapy services we offer:
Exercise rehabilitation helps to strengthen and stabilize injured areas promoting recovery.
Manual Therapy is hands-on manual mobilization of soft tissues, joints and nerves. Various techniques include joint mobilization, massage therapy, sustained stretches, and muscle energy techniques.
Electro-Therapy and Other Modalities is the use of electrical stimulation or ultrasound to increase circulation and decrease inflammation, swelling, and pain.
Acupuncture is the method of inserting acupuncture needles into acupuncture points for decreasing pain and inflammation. Western research has proven that acupuncture causes the body to release endorphins, which are our natural painkillers.
Intra-Muscular Stimulation, also known as dry needling, is the technique whereby an acupuncture needle is used to release tight knots in muscles to decrease the local or referred pain caused by these knots.
Vestibular Rehabilitation uses a series of treatment methods or exercises that helps with vertigo (feeling of spinning when you are actually stationary) or dizziness.
Custom made orthotics help to correct lower limb biomechanics and the way that the feet strike the ground to help relieve foot, ankle, hip, knee or back pain.
