A hands on physiotherapy technique that includes gentle joint mobilizations and soft tissue release techniques to restore joint range of motion and facilitate fluid, pain free movement. Manual therapy is most often applied to the neck, back, shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle/foot.
Electrotherapy treatment options such as TENS, interferential (IFC), and ultrasound, are applied to alleviate pain, reduce muscle spasm, decrease inflammation, and stimulate healing in combination with Physiotherapy. Neuromuscular stimulation can also be used to re-establish proper muscle activation/timing and optimize strength.
Cold Laser Therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and is thought to help accelerate the healing process. It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions in order to help eliminate pain, swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality.
Various Physiotherapists at our clinic offer IMS / Dry Needling in combination with physiotherapy as a treatment option. IMS can be helpful to:

Shockwave therapy is a multidisciplinary device used in orthopaedics, physiotherapy, sports medicine, urology and veterinary medicine. Its main assets are fast pain relief and mobility restoration. Together with being a non-surgical therapy with no need for painkillers makes it an ideal therapy to speed up recovery and cure various indications causing acute or chronic pain. Acoustic waves with high energy peak used in Shockwave therapy interact with tissue causing overall medical effects of accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, analgesia and mobility restoration.
Mechanical Traction is a manual technique designed to reduce pressure on affected vertebral discs that are causing pain. A steady and controlled traction or decompression force on the spine takes the pressure off the joints and the discs in the spine, giving pain relief for many lower back pain and neck conditions.
Traction therapy can treat a variety of conditions and injuries, some of which include sciatica, herniated or bulging discs, facet disease, pinched nerves, and degenerative disc disease.
