Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy uses proven techniques to help restore movement and function to anyone affected by an injury, disability or health condition.
Various manual therapy, exercise therapy and electrotherapy modalities assist individuals to return to healthy activity and improve their overall well-being.

Our Physiotherapists have excellent manual therapy skills with an extensive knowledge of musculoskeletal systems. A specialized assessment is performed to pinpoint the root causes of an injury and assist in determining which type of treatment modality is appropriate for you.

Athletic Taping and Bracing

from further re-injury and allows for an earlier return to activity.

Kinesiology

Exercise therapy involves eliciting motion of the body or its parts in order to relieve symptoms and improve function.

Orthotics

Prescription foot orthotics are custom made inserts for your shoes
designed to address various foot and lower body conditions.

activities and health factors.



 

 

 

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

PRP therapy has been shown to be very effective at treating both acute and soft tissue injuries. Blood is drawn from your own arm, and is placed in a centrifuge for spinning. This separates the platelet rich plasma, a source of over 300 active healing factors, that is then injected into the damaged area stimulating tissue repair and reducing pain.



Vertigo, Balance & Concussion Assessment

Our physical therapists are trained and experienced in identifying and treating symptoms associated with dizziness and balance disorders. This includes vestibular disorders of the inner ear responsible for position and motion sense of your body and head.

State-of-the-art 3D camera technology is also used in concussion baseline testing and to assess risk of falls in the elderly.
