Treating the cause, not just your symptoms

Your body’s way of moving is an engineering marvel.  It is a complex interaction of multiple systems that sometimes work independently but more often work collectively as a group.   If one of this complex system’s components stops working efficiently, it can have a failing effect onto other components in this system. 

Therefore the pain you are experiencing from a tendinitis may very well be the result from other muscle(s) being weak or inefficient.  While the tendinitis needs to be addressed, not addressing the weak structure as the root cause of your tendinitis would lead to poor recovery and a higher chance of the tendinitis re-occurring.

Our therapists are trained in the precision required to identify and correct the problem within a dysfunctional system through the application of highly skilled hands-on assessment and treatment.

Sport/Injury specific individualized exercise programs

One-on-one exercise sessions are focused on exposing you to a wider variety of exercises that can help your condition, give you further feedback regarding proper form for your home exercises, and make doing your exercises more motivating.

Sessions can be used to transition people back to workouts at the gym after an injury, help patients for a return to work or give patients a safe fitness program for home.

Our therapists are skilled at identifying any movement – or muscular impairment and are able to identify faulty alignment, form, movement patterns or muscle imbalances that can contribute to poor and painful posture. Correcting these issues will improve or help prevent musculoskeletal pain.

Our therapists are well equipped to custom-design an exercise program specific to your needs and goals. Your exercise program will be regularly reviewed and progressed to ensure that you are working as efficiently as possible towards your goals.  We strive to challenge your physical limits and so reach your optimal potential, recovery and function.
