Often, one system is affected by injury or illness to another.

We create customized exercise prescriptions and programs to minimize or eliminate your dysfunction and offer expert advice on how to best manage your injury, disease or disability.
What to expect on your first treatment
During your initial visit or ‘assessment’ (60 – 90 min.), a detailed history will be taken of your overall health level, including any past injuries, surgeries, or areas that concern you. The Physiotherapist will then examine your existing injury and thoroughly assess your joints, movement (body mechanics), muscles, bones, and soft tissue to determine the cause of injury, and recommend a treatment plan to alleviate your pain and discomfort and restore your level of functioning. This treatment may involve any combination of manual therapy, including ART – Active Release Technique, modalities, exercise programs, and education. If you have undergone any tests – Xrays, MRI’s, Ultrasound etc - please bring the test results with you. Please wear lose fitting clothing for your appointment.
Education and Prevention
Our Physiotherapists not only assess and treat your condition but also place a large emphasis on education and prevention. We encourage and teach our patients to take an active role in their recovery and give them the tools to recognize early signs of injury, and avoid further damage.
Make an appointment
A Doctor’s referral is not needed in order to make a Physiotherapy appointment with us, although we do receive a large number of patients who have been referred to us by their Family Doctor, Rheumatologist, or Orthopaedic surgeon. Many insurance companies do not require a Doctor’s referral for coverage. Please call us at any time to make an appointment, we are honoured to serve you. Remember – you don’t need to see a Doctor to see a Physio !
