Manual Therapy
Manual therapy is a specialty within physiotherapy that involves the use of hands-on techniques to restore or normalize movement of the spine and extremities. Our manual therapists have extensive post-graduate training in manual therapy through the orthopaedic division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.

Exercise Therapy
Exercise therapy involves the use of specific individualized stretching and strengthening programs to restore and improve movement and relieve pain. Our physiotherapists incorporate exercise into most treatment programs as a critical part of the rehabilitation process.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into acupuncture points to promote natural healing, alleviate pain, and normalize functioning.

Vestibular Rehabilitation
Vestibular rehabilitation is a specialized physiotherapy treatment program directed towards relieving the symptoms and discomfort of vestibular disorders. Dizziness, vertigo, unsteadiness and balance problems can all be treated through a gentle exercise and treatment program tailored to meet the specific needs of the patient.

Taping and/or bracing an injured joint or muscle can be used to prevent further injury or allow improved function. Physiotherapists will use taping as required to improve healing and functioning.

Kinesiology is the study of human anatomy, physiology and the mechanics of body movement. Our physiotherapists have all obtained Bachelors of Science degrees in Kinesiology prior to studying physiotherapy.
