Book an Appointment

Came here for back pain and John, the physiotherapist here listened to my concerns and was very helpful in his treatment plans. I was referred to him through some colleagues and was not disappointed. He was able to provide some relief from my pain on the first visit and recommended some exercises and stretches I could do at home. He is very knowledgeable and expresses interest in expanding his scope of practice to include other treatments in the future. I will be coming back simply due to John and his excellent service.

When you first see a physiotherapist


An initial assessment will be done by a physiotherapist.  This involves a detailed history taking, and then a physical test of Range of Motion, Strength, Flexibility, and a variety of other special tests (eg. reflexes, sensation, joint stability and ligament tests).

This determines the cause of the pain or problems presented.

Treatment Plan

A treatment plan, including a diagnosis, goals for treatment, frequency of treatment, and prognosis, will be developed to determine the best treatment approach given the specific condition and your specific needs.

Treatment always includes education about what is involved with your body

Treatment techniques include:

  • Stretching (e.g. Assisted, hands-on, active, directed or guided, PNF, Contract-Relax, Hold-Relax, Sustained, Prolonged, Dynamic)
  • Manual therapy (soft tissue techniques like massage, myofascial release, joint mobilization and/or spinal manipulation)
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Postural Work
  • Stability exercises
  • Mobility exercises
  • Work specific tasks and conditioning
  • Sport specific drills and conditioning
  • Modalities (eg. heat packs, ice or cold therapy, therapeutic ultrasound, TENS, NMES, IFC, Laser, Traction or spinal Decompression)

Physiotherapy also includes providing you with a home program of things to work on between physiotherapy sessions in the clinic.
