Physiotherapists are university educated and currently require a 4 year undergraduate degree prior to commencement of a formal 2 year Masters program for completion of a degree in physiotherapy. We treat musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and neurological patients of all ages.
Our experienced physiotherapists will perform an in-depth assessment for your condition consisting typically of;
- Scanning for unusual symptom presentations
- Assessing Active, Passive and Functional Movements
- Palpation of Muscle, Tendon, Bone and Vascular structures
- Performing Strength Testing
- Assessing the joint function with respect to stability and biomechanics
- Using Special Tests to help rule in or rule out various competing diagnoses
- Education regarding the diagnosis based on the subjective and objective findings
The physiotherapist will identify with you those impairments noted in the assessment and formulate an evidence-based treatment plan that may consist of any of the following dependent upon your diagnosis:
- Education Regarding;
* Diagnosis - The most likely condition(s) causing your problem

* Contributing Factors - those factors that influence your recovery
* Prevention - develop strategies to prevent re-occurrence
- Manual Therapy
- Physiotherapist applies a graded manual technique to a joint in dysfunction generally for several minutes. Proven to help decrease pain restore range of motion, improve joint biomechanics/nutrition, and increase circulation.
- Physiotherapist applies a high velocity low amplitude thrust or distraction force to a joint or soft tissue following screening for appropriateness of technique. Helps to decrease pain, unlock fixated joints, increase range of motion, improve joint nutrition/biomechanics and increase circulation.
- Physiotherapist may perform a variety of different stretching techniques to help restore ideal muscle flexibility which is very important in preventing faulty postures contributing to the condition.
* Soft Tissue
- Physiotherapist may use trigger point release, soft tissue massage or cross friction massage to decrease tightness/spasm, promote relaxation of tissue, increase circulation/blood flow to area, and/or mechanically break up scar tissue.

Helps to alleviate acute and chronic pain, decrease inflammation, increase range of motion, relieve spasm, improve blood flow, decrease nerve irritation and promote relaxation.
Uses ultrasonic waves to penetrate to a specific depth to the target tissue. Can be used to have a deep heating effect to promote more circulation to injured tissue or remodel scar tissue. Used regularly with acute or chronic tendonitis', nerve injury/irritation, muscle spasm/strain or ligament sprain that are localized
- Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
Used for acute and chronic pain. Decreases pain and spasm and increases circulation to improve healing.
- Neuro-Muscular Electronic Stimulation (NMES)
Used primarily post-operatively or with significant muscle weakness (atrophy). Can combine with exercise.
- Interferential Current (IFC)
Used to decrease pain, spasm and swelling. Improves circulation and blood flow to promote healing.
* Variety of techniques for various musculoskeletal conditions that are used to unload tight muscles, engage weak muscles and/or correct faulty postural adaptations. These techniques have gained popularity through research with high performance athletes such as elite cyclists, runners, volleyball and basketball players.

- Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL)
- Lateral Collateral Ligament (LCL)
* Osteoarthritis Bracing
- Used to unload the medial (inner) or lateral (outer) compartments of the knee that are arthritic and painful during weightbearing activities. Helps to prevent bone on bone contact which causes further joint inflammation and pain.
