Physiotherapists are health care professionals who diagnose injuries and provide hands-on treatment, electrical modalities and exercise prescription to address movement dysfunction. Physiotherapists also plan and implement individual treatment programs to treat specific injuries, based on a detailed assessment. In addition to conventional treatment, our Clinic has Therapists that are trained in performing IMS/Dry Needling, Vestibular Rehabilitation and Concussion Management.
Our massage therapists are Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs), and are licensed through the Massage Therapists’ Association of BC. They are trained in the assessment and diagnosis of soft tissue and joints of the body, and the treatment and prevention of injury, pain and physical disorders.
Active Rehabilitation sessions are one-on-one exercise sessions conducted by our Kinesiologist. The goal of the program is to return the patient to their pre-injury work/activity level and assist them in incorporating a healthy lifestyle. Cardiovascular exercises, spinal stability exercises, specific and general stretches, individualized regime of graduated resisted strengthening exercises and education sessions are key components of the program.
Hydrotherapy refers to therapeutic exercise classes that are performed in the water under the instruction and supervision of our Hydrotherapist, Philip Letts. Classes are approximately 40 minutes in length, limited to 4 people and are held in the shallow water of the Watermania pool facility. Before attending a Hydrotherapy class, patients must book a Physiotherapy assessment to determine whether Hydrotherapy is appropriate. Hydrotherapy at our Clinic is billed as a Physiotherapy treatment session.
* Due to COVID 19-related restrictions, we are currently unable to offer Hydrotherapy at this time.
Joint Active Rehab (JAR) is an exercise-based class instructed by a Physiotherapist to optimize the recovery process for clients after joint replacement surgery.
The Physiotherapist will address questions regarding your post-surgery rehabilitation and provide appropriate progression of exercises. This is a land-based class with a strong focus on active movement supported by current research.
Each class lasts 60 minutes and consists of three parts: warm up, circuit training and cool down.
