Chiropractors are musculoskeletal experts and can assess, diagnose and treat injuries to various parts of the body including the spine, shoulders, hips, knees, ankles, elbows, wrists, hands, feet, the jaw (TMJ) and headaches. They are specialists in manual adjustment of the vertebrae of the spine and other joints of the body. Adjustment helps relieve pain and restore normal functioning to the joints and supporting muscles and ligaments – so you can enjoy your everyday activities again as quickly as possible.

Your chiropractor will recommend a course of treatment specific to you that may also include mobilization of the joints, acupuncture, ultrasound, muscle release techniques, muscle stimulation and therapeutic exercises. Chiropractors are also trained to provide nutritional counselling, and recommend rehabilitation and injury prevention strategies.

Physical dysfunction and pain and the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented through the use of Massage Therapy. Massage is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, to enhance function, aid in the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity, inhibit motor-neuron excitability,promote relaxation, improve circulation, and, primarily, to optimize health and well-being.

Massage involves working and acting on the body with pressure – structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids. Target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system.

Your Treatment

Before a treatment, your Massage Therapist will propose a personalized treatment plan based on an initial assessment and health history. The assessment consists of various tests to determine the condition of your muscles and joints. Any personal and health information you provide to your Massage Therapist is completely confidential and will be safeguarded. Your health record cannot be released or transferred without your written consent.

Your Massage Therapist must also obtain your consent to work on any part of your body, regardless of whether you are fully clothed, or fully or partially covered with sheets or blankets. Your privacy will always be respected, and you may withdraw your consent for treatment at any time.

Various specialized movements of the hands, over the skin or clothes, make up the Massage Therapy treatment. The Massage Therapist will work with your level of pain tolerance during the treatment, and the treatment can be stopped at any time should the treatment become uncomfortable.

Massage therapy is not covered by OHIP, but many private insurance companies cover treatment from a Massage Therapist as part of their extended healthcare plans. Please consult your policy.

"Effective physiotherapy is about treating the cause not just symptoms."

Physiotherapists have extensive knowledge of anatomy, exercise physiology and biomechanics which guide a thorough and complete physical assessment. From that information, they will diagnose the injury and devise a customized treatment plan which includes exercise retraining, joint mobilizations, therapeutic massage, ultrasound, muscle stimulation and performance taping.

Our physiotherapists are strong believers in patient education and home exercise to empower the patient to “treat themselves” to restore full mobility while preventing the injury from coming back. Their goal is to provide the necessary and most effective treatment modalities to return patients to their full, pain free potential for the activities that are most meaningful to them.

Some common occupational, sport and recreational injuries include:

Ligamentous knee injuries (ACL, MCL, LCL, PCL)
Rotator cuff tendonitis and strains
Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Jumper’s knee (patellar tendinitis)
Patellofemoral syndrome
Ankle sprains
Achilles tendinitis
Plantar fasciitis
Our physiotherapists are passionate about sports medicine and rehabilitation. They have a strong belief in a dynamic, active approach to rehabilitation.
