Clinic information

Our team

Common conditions we treat

  • 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.

  • Headaches

    Headaches can be caused by a variety of conditions and once assessed by a healthcare professional can be helped with physiotherapy treatment.

  • 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.

  • Knee-pain

    Knee pain can be caused by bursitis, a torn tendon, ACL tear or injury and overuse. It is most frequently the result of osteoarthritis. Physiotherapy can help speed recovery.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Sciatica

    The sciatic nerve run from the lower back, through the hip and into each buttock before traveling down each leg. Sciatica is the term used to describe the symptoms when there is pressure on the nerve, causing pain in the lower back, hip or buttock. Physiotherapy or chiropractic services can help relieve sciatic pain.

  • Sports-injuries

    Sport injuries can occur in weekend warriors to professional athletes, ranging from minor to acute. A treatment plan from physiotherapists and sport medicine physicians can help speed recovery and prevent future injury.

  • TMJ

    Temporomandibular joint dysfunction or TMJ refers to pain and dysfunction of jaw muscles and the joints that connect the jaw bone to the skull. It is characterized by pain, difficulty chewing and noises (popping/cracking) when the jaw moves. Physiotherapy or massage therapy may help alleviate some of the symptoms of pain and discomfort.

  • 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.

  • 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.
