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

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.

Treatment from one of our foot care specialists may help to reduce the symptoms and pain.
