  • Shockwave therapy

    Shockwave therapy

    Shockwave is quickly becoming the treatment of choice to heal soft tissue injuries with results that last! The shockwave delivers high energy sound waves into the tissue, which triggers a biological cascade at the cellular level to activate the body’s own healing process. Shockwave stimulates the growth of new blood vessels, so the injured tissue can receive better Oxygen and cellular energy supply. This creates an environment where the tissue can repair and heal properly, even if the injury is chronic. The increased blood flow also helps flush out painful chemicals in the tissue, thus decreasing the pain you feel!

    The treatment is non-surgical, non-invasive, and has excellent success rates published in research articles studying the technology. To learn more, check out the Shockwave Canada Website – https://shockwavecanada.com/

    Shockwave is often indicated for:

    • Calcific Rotator Cuff Tendonitis
    • Plantar Fasciitis
    • Tennis Elbow
    • Golfer’s Elbow
    • Achilles Tendonitis
    • Gluteal Tendonitis

  • Anatomical Acupuncture

    Anatomical Acupuncture

    Acupuncture can help reduce pain, inflammation, muscle tension, and facilitates proper nervous system function. Many acupuncture points are located on or near peripheral nerves, spinal nerves, muscle motor points, and musculotendinous junctions. Stimulating acupuncture points with a needle can help restore proper muscle tone and function, and it regulates the activity of the nerve that supplies that muscle. Your Physiotherapist can assess whether acupuncture could benefit your recovery. All of our Physiotherapists have advanced training and certification in order to offer Anatomical Acupuncture. 

    There is no additional charge for receiving acupuncture during your physiotherapy visit. You are able to continue moderate exercise after receiving acupuncture. Small amounts of bruising and soreness are normal after treatment. Acupuncture is not recommended for pregnant women. If you are immunocompromised, or taking blood thinner medication, you might be at higher risk for adverse effects. Your Physiotherapist will discuss what the best treatment options may be for you.

  • Intramuscular Stimulation (Gunn IMS) & Functional Dry Needling

    Intramuscular Stimulation (Gunn IMS) & Functional Dry Needling

    IMS and Functional Dry Needling address the neuropathic origin of the pain that you feel locally in a muscle. Nerves can slightly malfunction after minor irritation. They can become sensitive, or “sensitized” and their signals are exaggerated. The signals can be perceived as painful by the body, and the ongoing signals to the muscle can cause chronic contraction and shortening of the muscle it supplies.


    IMS and Functional Dry Needling are needle treatment techniques that release shortened bands of muscle and trigger points that often are the source of pain and dysfunction. This helps relieve pressure on the tendons and joints the affected muscle is involved with, which can help decrease the strain on those structures. This in turn can help reduce the inflammation or degenerative changes that might be occurring in the tendon or joint.


    IMS may be used on muscles of the limbs, and/or spinal muscles. Your Physiotherapist can determine if you could benefit from dry needling. All of our Physiotherapists who practice IMS or Functional Dry Needling have completed advanced training and certification to perform the technique.

    There is no additional charge for receiving IMS during your physiotherapy visit. You are able to continue moderate exercise after receiving dry needling. Small amounts of bruising and soreness are normal after treatment. IMS is not recommended for pregnant women. If you are immunocompromised, or taking blood thinner medication, you might be at higher risk for adverse effects. Your Physiotherapist will discuss what the best treatment options may be for you.

  • Pre & Post-Operative Therapy

    Pre & Post-Operative Therapy

    Physiotherapy treatment before an orthopaedic surgery can help in several areas. It ensure you are going into your procedure with optimized range of motion and strength, it can help with pain relief while you wait for surgery, and it can address surrounding joint and muscle aches that may be compensating for the affected area. “Pre-hab” often makes the rehab post-surgery go more smoothly. Treatment after surgery aims to maximize any movement limitations that are still lacking and gain functional strength to bridge the gap between surgical recovery to living an active healthy life post-procedure. 

    Common operative conditions that we treat include: 

    • Hip and Knee joint replacements
    • Arthroscopies of the shoulder, wrist, hip, knee, ankle
    • ACL reconstruction of the knee 
    • Rotator cuff repairs

  • Vertigo & Vestibular Rehabilitation

    Vertigo & Vestibular Rehabilitation

    Vestibular Rehab involves assessment and re-training of the inner ear organ that controls equilibrium. Physiotherapy treatment often helps a variety of vestibular conditions, most notably Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). If you do have BPPV, your Physiotherapist is able to assess which inner ear canal might be the cause of the problem and perform the corresponding treatment protocol. Vestibular rehab with a Physiotherapist is considered the gold-standard for BPPV treatment.

    Vestibular rehab therapy can also help conditions causing unilateral or bilateral vestibular hypofunction (reduced function of the inner ear organ), for example an inflammation of the vestibular nerve, that might be causing symptoms of dizziness, vertigo, poor balance, and motion sickness. Vestibular rehab Physio treatment addresses the integration of the vestibular system with the visual system, cervical spine movement, and balance/proprioception.
