Our Services

 

Personalized Physiotherapy Assessment and Treatment

 

A one-hour comprehensive assessment, detailed explanation of the problem and discussion of treatment options.  Subsequent one-on-one treatment sessions are directly with your physiotherapist and can include as needed, manual therapy (mobilization and manipulation of joints and soft tissue), exercise prescription and instruction, physiotherapy modalities, education and information on managing your current injury as well as prevention strategies.

 

 

Modalities


A variety of treatment tools are used to reduce pain and inflammation, as well as to promote tissue healing, strengthen and relax muscle. This may include ultrasound, electrical stimulation, electrical muscle stimulation, acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, heat and ice and TENS.

 

 

 

 

 

Manual Therapy


"Hands-on" treatment of joints, neural, fascial and soft tissue structures such as muscles and tendons. It includes stretching, mobilization of the myofascial and nervous system, mobilization and manipulation of the spine as well as joints in the upper and lower extremity.  http://manippt.org/

 

Acupuncture


Uses sterile single-use needles to reduce or relieve inflammation and pain. This is achieved by stimulating specific areas of the body to produce its own pain relieving chemicals called endorphins which help to block pathways that relay pain messages from the body to the brain. www.afcinstitute.com

 

 

 

 

 

 

Intramuscular Stimulation (Gunn IMS)


A total system for the diagnosis and treatment of myofascial pain syndromes (chronic pain conditions that occur in the musculoskeletal system when there is no obvious sign of injury or inflammation). Click to read more. www.ubcgunnims.com

 

Integrated Dry Needling (IDN)

 

IDN is a technique that uses acupuncture needles to release tight, shortened muscles that cause pain and alter your body mechanics.  Our therapists are able to apply the dry needling technique in combination with their Manual Therapy skills to provide comprehensive and effective treatment.

 

 

Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT)


An approach used for the treatment of individuals with central nervous system (CNS) disorders. It is a hands-on, problem solving approach that involves direct handling and guidance from the physiotherapist to optimize function of the individual. Click to read more.  www.ndta.org

 

 

 

 

 

Breathing Evaluation and Retraining using Capnography

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Orthotics


Comprehensive assessment and gait analysis.  Includes digital gait scan using a force plate to identify faulty mechanics as well as a three dimensional foam cast of the foot which is utilized in the prescription of custom orthotics.

 

 

Fit Fore Golf


Individualized assessment of golf swing and posture to improve your technique and prevent injury, as well as improving sport specific flexibility and strength. www.fitforegolf.com

 

 

 

 

 

Concussion Rehabilitation

 

Individualized assessment and treatment for concussions and post-concussion syndrome. We use an evidence-based treatment approach and progression toward symptom free return to school, work and sport. An important component to this is completing a Baseline test before the brain injury occurs. Concussion Baseline testing is available for individuals or teams.

 

Bracing


Gives external support to joints early on following an injury or may be used if joints remain unstable following intervention.  Bracing may allow you to return to your activities earlier and reduce the risk of re-injury.  We provide Bio Skin braces, which are latex free and neoprene free to eliminate skin irritations and allergic reactions.  Our physiotherapists will measure you on-site.  Braces arrive as early as 24 hours after ordering. www.dunbarmedical.com
