All of our Physiotherapists are in good standing with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario, and maintain special interests in areas such as sports injuries, management of degenerative joint and inflammatory joint conditions, post-surgical care, and pelvic floor rehabilitation to name a few.
Massage is the oldest known healing art. By using therapeutic touch through massage, a registered massage therapist can effectively reduce the pain caused by a headache or sprain and strains caused by a car accident or sports related injury. A massage can help reduce chronic and acute stress and allow you to feel relaxed which causes the body to release endorphin hormones that relieve pain and muscular tension.
Chiropody is a branch of medical science that involves the assessment and management of foot and lower limb disorders: this includes the management of a wide variety of disorders, injuries and local manifestations of systemic conditions (from http://michener.ca/program/chiropody/)
A Chiropodist can help manage the lower extremity manifestations in the following areas:
Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy is the assessment and treatment of your pelvic floor and may be indicated for a variety of diagnoses such as stress/urge incontinence, chronic non-bacterial prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain, etc.
The role of exercise in the management of symptoms associated with cancer has been studied in great detail. Exercise may be indicated to help manage symptoms of fatigue, weakness, decrease strength, depression, and pain.
Shockwave therapy is a safe and effective technique in the management of chronic tendon pain as well as increased tightness in muscles of your body.
Bracing is a safe and effective technique used to decrease the range of motion and stresses around a particular area. Braces may be over the counter or customized to specific areas such as the knee.
Have one of our physiotherapists guide you to a safe and efficient return to sport after suffering a concussion.
"A concussion is a traumatic brain injury induced by biomechanical forces, which may be caused either by a direct blow to the head, face, neck or elsewhere on the body with an impulsive force transmitted to the head (1)”. It requires immediate attention and care to prevent further injury and chronic impairment. Headaches, dizziness, nausea, light and sound sensitivity, difficulty with attention, concentration and memory and sleep disturbances are some common symptoms following Concussion.
Concussion management and rehabilitation can help to limit impairments and expedite recovery, especially if symptoms persist beyond the first few days following the injury. Our trained physiotherapists will utilize varying treatment options including education around the injury, vestibular rehabilitation, Ocular/visual rehabilitation, cardiovascular training and manual therapy for cervical spine dysfunction in order to guide you through your recovery following a concussion.

Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicines in which fine needles are inserted into your body to elicit a positive response with regards to pain, stiffness and decreased function
IMS is a technique, much like acupuncture, that uses fine needles inserted into taut bands of muscle to decrease tightness. It is useful in many acute and chronic pain conditions.
ART is the use of manual soft tissue manipulation to release tough, dense scar tissue that has accumulated as a result of injury or dysfunction. Abnormal tissue is treated using very specific pressures to soft tissue and active movement to decrease the tension and scar tissue that has accumulated.
Manual Therapy is the use of specialized manual techniques involving the soft tissue and joints of your spine and extremities. Our Physiotherapists have extensive training in assessing your soft tissue and joints to determine whether there are restrictions that are clinically related to your injury/dysfunction. Treatments using specific directional mobilizations of these joints to relieve pain and increase range of motion may be utilized as part of a comprehensive treatment protocol to help you recover.
