We treat a broad spectrum of athletes from a variety of sports. We treat athletes through all phases of their recovery from acute early accurate diagnosis care to thorough return to play preparation.

Regardless of the degree or nature of your injury, our personalized rehabilitation programs ensure that you recover to the best of your ability. Our exercise programs help you recover and strengthen so as to minimize further injury. Our staff are sports enthusiasts and they understand what it’s like to sit on the bench with a sprained ankle!

Performance Enhancement
With our large gym and specialized equipment, we can measure and document an array of techniques and intervals. We use this information in addition to our initial physical assessments to design individual programs to help athletes and sports teams maximize their performance potential and minimize their injury risk.

Custom Orthotics
Custom Orthotics

We prescribe and fit custom orthotics to address a number of foot and lower limb mechanical problems. The orthotics can be manufactured to fit almost any type of footwear including dress shoes, running shoes, soccer boots, work boots and ski boots.

A thorough biomechanical assessment is performed by a Registered Physiotherapist prior to plaster cast moulds being made of your feet.

The orthotics are then fabricated in a Canadian lab with specific instructions from the treating physiotherapist.

Acupuncture
Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the practice of inserting very thin needles in strategic points throughout your body. By targeting and stimulating nerves, muscles, and connective tissue, acupuncture aids in a pain relief and increases blood flow.

It’s normal to be a little nervous about acupuncture, but we promise that it’s a painless and wonderful practice! We have several staff who are well trained and certified to perform acupuncture.
Acupuncture can be a beneficial addition to your rehabilitation or enhancement program. We practice acupuncture in our specialized massage therapy rooms to ensure relaxation and tranquility.

Massage Therapy
Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is the practice of applying varying pressures to soft tissue, including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Massage therapy can be used to help heal injuries, manage pain, improve circulation, and relieve tension. Our two wonderful registered massage therapists are often incorporated into personalized rehabilitation programs created by our physiotherapists. Massage therapy is practiced in one of our specialized rooms to ensure absolute relaxation and tranquility.

    We also offer baseline testing to determine an athlete’s “normal” performance for a variety of physical and cognitive tests. Should the athlete suffer a concussion their post-concussion assessment findings can be compared to their baseline results. This can guide their treatment and provide the physiotherapist with objective measures to assist in preparing the athlete for return to play.
