Vestibular Therapy & Concussion Management

Vestibular Therapy is an exercise-based treatment designed to rewire the brain (neuroplasticity) for the treatment of dizziness/balance disorders, vertigo, postural stability, gaze stability, and redirection of motion sensitivity. Various disorders such as Labyrinthitis, Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), vestibular neuritis, Meniere’s disease, concussions and small vessel ischemia disease are amenable to a special exercise program designed to reduce symptoms.

Active Rehabilitation

Active Rehabilitation/Kinesiology is an exercise-based program developed on the foundation of movement science. This treatment is utilized to promote overall health and wellbeing, prevent and rehabilitate acute and chronic injuries, and optimize function and performance. Active Rehabilitation is a 1 on 1 treatment provided by a registered Kinesiologist and is individualized based on your needs and goals.

Visceral Manipulation

Visceral manipulation is a gentle manual treatment that addresses tension in the soft tissue connections within and around our organs. Tissue tension can cause pulls on the musculoskeletal system. The technique has been around since the mid 80s when French osteopath Jean-Pierre Barral invented it. The practitioner uses their hands to assess tense spots and gently compress and move soft tissues around the organs to release adhesions and tight connective tissue. These abnormal points of tension need to be moved around to release their affect on the musculoskeletal system.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy gently releases restrictions in movement to restore the normal motion to the bones of the head, spinal column, and sacrum, membrane joints, fascia and soft tissues using light touch. This gentle technique alleviates pain and releases restrictions to normalize central nervous system flow of cerebral spinal fluid. This technique removes blockages in the normal flow and enhances the body’s ability to heal.

Pelvic Health Physiotherapy

Pelvic health physiotherapy is the assessment and treatment of a variety of conditions related to the pelvic floor. 

The pelvic floor is comprised of muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue that span the bottom of the pelvis. Like any other area in our body, if these muscles are not performing optimally they can result in a wide variety of dysfunctions. Some common symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction are: incontinence, urgency, prolapse, pelvic pain, and tailbone pain. Although common, pelvic health concerns do not have to be suffered with silently. Pelvic health physiotherapy is shown in the research to be the gold standard for first line, non -surgical management of a variety of conditions. A physiotherapist with specialized training will carry out an assessment followed by individualized education and treatment. 

Intramuscular Stimulation

IMS (Intramuscular Stimulation) is an effective treatment for chronic pain of neuropathic origin developed by Dr. Chan Gunn. It is useful to treat chronic pain syndromes that affect the musculoskeletal system. IMS is a dry needling technique that involves the insertion of acupuncture needles into taut muscle bands (dry means that no drugs are injected). The tight muscles cause misalignment by holding specific body parts in abnormal positions and can contribute to degenerative changes and undue stresses. Resultant poor movement patterns, posture and pain can be treated by acupuncture needles.

Manual Therapy

Manual Therapy is a term applied to a hands-on treatment utilized by our Physiotherapists to restore mobility to joints, muscles, and nerves. These techniques are used to assess and treat pain and stiffness caused by orthopaedic injuries or conditions. Manual Therapy can improve tissue extensibility, increase range of motion, induce relaxation, modulate pain and reduce soft tissue swelling/inflammation.
