General Physiotherapy & Dry Needling/IMS
Physiotherapy can help with musculoskeletal injuries such as neck, shoulder, back, hip, knee, and ankle pain. Additionally, it helps manage arthritis, postural pain, pre/post-operative rehabilitation, ergonomic assessments, and much much more!
Dry needling (DN) is also known as IMS (intramuscular stimulation), is a needling technique that refers to the use of a sterile, thin acupuncture needle to treat myofascial pain. Needles are inserted to release points of tension along muscles to help relieve pain, release trigger points (points of neuromuscular tension), and restore optimal movement. Research supports the use of dry needling to reduce pain and stiffness as well as improve range of motion, and overall sense of wellbeing.

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy
Pelvic floor physiotherapy consists of the assessment, treatment, and prevention of numerous pelvic health issues. The pelvic floor plays an important role in pelvic organ support, sexual function, bladder and bowel control, circulation, and stability.
Pelvic floor physiotherapy can help with pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, urgency, and frequency, pelvic pain, diastasic recti, pain with sex, pubic symphysis dysfunction, back pain and much much more!
Physiotherapy without needing to leave your home can be a great option to start or continue your treatment. This can help alleviate alternate arrangements such as finding childcare, logistics of getting to the clinic, or if you are simply not comfortable with coming into the clinic at this time.
Infant Torticollis & Plagiocephaly
Infant torticollis is a common condition that causes a stiff neck where the infant holds their head with a tilt and preference to rotate one way. This can lead to plagiocephaly, or development of a flat spot on the back of their heads. Working with a physiotherapist to restore normal function in the neck and education on infant positioning in sleep, play, and throughout the day will help address infant torticollis and plagiocephaly.
