Clinic information

Our team

Common conditions we treat

  • Arthritis

    Arthritis is the classifcation of approximately 200 rheumatic diseases and conditions that affect joints, the tissues that surround the joint, and other connective tissue, causing pain, stiffness and mobility challenges. Assessment and treatment from a physiotherapist and chiropractor may help relieve the pain and stiffness.

  • BPPV

    Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo or BPPV is the most common form of vertigo, and results in sharp and acute dizziness brought on by movement. It is caused by a dysfunction in the vestibular apparatus, a series of canals located inside the ear, which includes a canal of tiny crystals of calcium carbonate. BPPV occurs when some of the crystals escape from their normal chamber and get into one or more of the other ear canals. Vestibular rehab therapists are trained in treating the symptoms of BPPV.

  • Carpal-tunnel-syndrome

    Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve in the wrist and can result in numbness, tingling and pain in the affected hand and arm. It is often the result of repetitive use and strain. Physiotherapy can help alleviate some of the symptoms associated with carpal tunnel syndrome.

  • Concussion

    A concussion is a brain injury that has physical symptoms such as headache, nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, and cognitive and emotional affects, including brain fog, lack of mental focus and fatigue. Concussion care services can help both speed recovery and prevent future injury.
  • Dizziness-and-balance

    Dizziness and balance issues can include vertigo, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), nausea, light-headedness, vision issues, motion sensitivity and sensitivity to crowds. They can severely impact quality of life if left untreated. Vestibular rehabilitation can help improve symptoms.
  • Frozen-shoulder

    Frozen shoulder is a progressive condition that often starts with pain in the shoulder joint during basic movement. If the condition is left untreated, pain increases and mobility decreases. Physiotherapists can assess and develop a treatment plan.

  • Herniated-disc

    A herniated disc refers to a problem with one of the rubbery cushions (disks) between the individual bones (vertebrae) that stack up to make your spine. Chiropractic services can help with the associated pain and discomfort.

  • Low-back-pain

    Low back pain is one of the most common patient complaints. It can result from arthritis, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, sciatica, injury or overuse. An assessment from a physiotherapist or chiropractor can help provide a diagnosis and treatment plan.

  • Muscle-sprains-and-strain

    Muscles sprains and strains can result from sport or motor vehicle injuries, overuse or common activity. They can range to mild, moderate to severe requiring more intensive intervention. Physiotherapy and massage therapy can help speed recovery.

  • Neck-pain

    Neck pain can result from poor posture, injury like whiplash, infection in the lymph nodes or throat, or a herniated disc. Physiotherapy, massage therapy or chiropractic treatment can help improve mobility and pain.

  • Pelvic-floor-tension

    Pelvic floor tension or dysfunction, specifically muscles that are too tight. The pelvic floor muscles are the group of muscles that attach to the front, back and sides of the bottom of the pelvis and sacrum. When the muscles are too tight it can cause pelvic pain, challenges with continence and intercourse (for women). An assessment from a pelvic health physiotherapist can help diagnose and treat the condition.

  • Plantar-fasciitis

    Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain, usually occurring with the first steps in the morning. With activity, pain typically subsides, but can return after running or standing up after sitting for a length of time. It most commonly affects people who stand for long periods on hard surfaces, runners, and other high-impact athletes. Treatment from one of our foot care specialists may help to reduce the symptoms and pain.

  • Rotator-cuff-injuries

    The rotator cuff consists of four muscles that surround the shoulder blade (scapula), and help to hold the arm bone (humerus) in the shoulder capsule. It is easily injured by sport, repetitive use and common daily activity. Physiotherapists can help diagnose and treat symptoms.

  • Scoliosis

    Scoliosis is when an individual's spine has a curve to the side, usually described as 'S' or 'C' shaped. Scoliosis can cause pain, digestive issues and mobility challenges. Chiropractic services can help mitigate the symptoms associated with scoliosis.

  • Urinary-incontinence

    Urinary incontinence, or UI is any involuntary loss of urine, whether that be a little or a lot. It is believed that nearly 1.5 million Canadians, of all ages, suffer from some form of UI. The two most common forms of UI are stress incontinence and urge incontinence. Pelvic health physiotherapists are trained to assess and treat all forms of UI.

  • Vertigo

    Vertigo is the sensation of feeling off-balance, dizzy or that world around you is spinning. It is most often caused by an inner ear imbalance. An assessment and treatment program from a trained vestibular therapist may help.
