Pelvic Floor Physiotherapists assess and treat conditions that involve the muscles located at the base of the pelvis. These muscles control the function of the urinary, bowel and sexual organs as well as being contributors to your overall core stability. Like other muscles, we can improve strength, endurance, and coordination of pelvic floor muscles. We treat incontinence, urgency, pelvic pain, prolapse, diastasis recti (separation of the abdominals), low back and hip pain originating from the pelvis, post-surgical (prolapse, hysterectomy, oncology) rehabilitation, pregnancy and postpartum symptoms and many other conditions. Pelvic floor dysfunction can affect all people and is not limited to elderly or pregnant people. Pelvic health dysfunction is not a natural part of aging nor is it considered “normal.”
Vestibular therapy and vertigo treatment includes a thorough assessment of your vestibular system including benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) tests, eye-tracking tests, and balance and gait assessments. With the results, they will develop a customized treatment plan to minimize vertigo, dizziness, imbalance, and falls. A treatment plan might include the Epley maneuver, gaze stability exercises, balance retraining, hands-on treatment, aerobic exercise, and/or recommendations around planning and pacing. Our goal is to help you return to the activities you love.
Dry needling (also referred to as IMS) involves inserting a monofilament needle into a taut band of muscle/fascial/subcutaneous tissue to help with relieving pain, restoring function and neurophysiological balance. The use of dry needling follows a theory of neuromuscular physiology and pain science.

Ergonomic assessment may be indicated if you or your employees are experiencing back pain, neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain or carpal tunnel syndrome. If your workstation is not set up properly, the repetitive strain on your body can affect productivity, lead to acute or chronic pain, and limit your ability to enjoy doing the things you love.
Our Ergonomic Assessment is performed by a Registered Physiotherapist and includes a review of employee-specific concerns, pre-existing injuries, work history and work tasks. An office assessment includes specific measurements of the workspace, chair set up, and position of monitor, keyboard, and mouse. The therapist will make recommendations for improvements, adjustments, and product recommendations in a report. You will also receive education on how to reduce the effects of repetitive strain injury including preventative measures, exercises/stretch breaks and postural correction.
