How we treat

Orthopedic manual therapy- we are CAMPT-certified! CAMPT-logo-med

Orthopedic manual therapy is a structured approach to the assessment and treatment of complex joint and muscle problems. CAMPT-certified physiotherapists are Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT)  that have completed extensive post-graduate education and have attained internationally recognized qualifications in hands-on manipulative therapy. The treatment approach is based on providing education, individually-tailored exercises and focused hands-on techniques to get to the underlying cause of the problem, to speed recovery and to prevent reoccurence.

Pelvic health physiotherapy

Pelvic health physiotherapy requires an internal pelvic exam to assess and treat imbalances in the pelvic floor muscles.  Specifically tailored exercises are prescribed to treat pelvic floor muscles that are either too weak or too tight. Exercises to coordinate the pelvic floor muscles with the diaphragm and deep abdominal and back muscles are integrated, as part of a core retraining program. Clients are empowered to learn new strategies for posture and movement and to develop mindful awareness, healthy bladder and bowel habits and safe exercises.  The treatment may also include biofeedback, electrical muscle stimulation, acupuncture and dry needling. Pessary fitting services are also offered.

Pre and post-natal physiotherapy

Pre and post-natal physiotherapy provides a continuum of care through the childbearing year. It includes prenatal screening for pregnancy-related orthopedic or pelvic floor problems, prenatal exercise, education for labor and delivery, post-natal education and exercise, and progressive training for return to sports. A strong emphasis is placed on optimizing the flexibility, coordination, tone, and strength of the muscles of the pelvis and abdominal canister, especially the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles.
