Physiotherapy benefits include decreasing pain, improving joint mobility and increasing overall strength. Anyone who is looking to improve their overall health and wellbeing can benefit from physiotherapy. Our talented physiotherapist can help you get back to feeling how you should!
Physiotherapists are hands on, manual therapy practitioners who combine passive care (acupuncture, soft tissue therapies) with active care (strengthening stretches and exercises). It is the goal of a physiotherapy to improve your mobility and strength so you can not only get back to what you love doing, but to also excel at it!
On your first visit, your physiotherapist will take a detailed history to determine your health goals, the problems you are currently experiencing, and whether chiropractic care is appropriate in your specific situation. Once it is determined safe to proceed, the chiropractor will then complete a comprehensive examination to help determine the underlying causes of your particular complaints.
Depending on the findings of the exam, your chiropractor may decide to treat on the first visit, but only after your diagnosis and treatment plans have been discussed with you. Expect this process to take between 45-60 mins in length.

Spinal Decompression is a form of mechanical traction through the use of a specialized table. It works by gently providing traction to the vertebrae of your spine creating a negative pressure within the discs. The discs in your spine are a gel-like substance that can protrude or ‘herniate’ putting pressure on important structures of the back (ie. Nerves) causing pain. The negative pressure can cause the discs to retract relieving this pressure and discomfort. It also promotes healing by introducing water, and nutrient rich fluids back into the discs.
Spinal Decompression works great for disc herniations, degenerative discs, osteoarthritis, and as an alternative to spinal adjustments.
Hands-on stretching and massage to help relieve muscle tension and immobility by relaxing soft tissues and knotted up muscle fibres.

The Pelvic Floor is a group of muscles that sit in the base of the pelvis. Most commonly these muscles are known for their role in bowel, bladder and sexual function. They also play a key role in the core which means dysfunction in the pelvic floor can often lead to low back, hip and groin pain. Pelvic health issues are often poorly addressed or ignored completely.
