Here are some treatment techniques our physiotherapists utilize:

Manual Therapy

  • hands on joint mobilizations and soft-tissue techniques


Physiotherapy is a type of therapy that helps to restore and maintain functional movement. It also helps to decrease pain and improve overall health.

Physiotherapists are trained in manual therapy which means they use their hands to provide different treatment techniques. These may include joint mobilizations (moving your joints), massage, and stretching. Along with manual therapy physiotherapists may utilize other modalities to help with recovery such as heat, ice, ultrasound, interferential current, TENS, and neuromuscular stimulation. 

Physiotherapists are also highly trained in exercise prescription and provide exercises to be completed at your therapy session and home.

  • strengthening

  • stretching

  • core training

  • balance/stability

  • postural


  • Advice, modification, and recommendations to your current daily routine as it relates to your condition

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a hands-on approach to improving well-being by manipulating soft tissues like muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue. Techniques include deep tissue, Swedish, trigger point release, myofascial release, and relaxation massages. These methods cater to different needs:

  • Deep tissue: Targets chronic pain and muscle tension.

  • Swedish: Promotes relaxation and stress

  • Trigger point release: Relieves tight muscle knots.

  • Myofascial release: Enhances mobility and reduces pain.

  • Relaxation: Destresses and rejuvenates.


Massage therapy reduces stress and anxiety, alleviates pain, aids in soft-tissue injury rehabilitation, and supports overall health
