Treatment Techniques

Many different techniques are used in physiotherapy. Based on your goals, current evidence, and my experience, we will work together to create an individual treatment plan.

Working together will ensure you get the most effective care possible. 


Read below for more details on different techniques that may be a part of your treatment.

Manual Therapy

Your treatment will often include some form of hands-on manual therapy. Depending on your goals, specific techniques will be chosen to improve mobility, decrease pain, and get you back to your desired activity. Techniques used may consist of joint and nerve mobilization, myofascial and active release, traction, and manipulation.  

Exercise Prescription

Exercise has been shown to be one of the most effective ways to recover from an injury, decrease pain, and improve activity tolerance. Based on your assessment, an individualized exercise program will be created for you. Some exercises may be performed in clinic, others will be sent with you for homework. 


Tape can be used to offload injured tissues, increase joint stability, and enforce new movement patterns. It can also be used to protect recovering tissues in the transition back to sports and more demanding activities. 

Pre & Post Operative Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy before surgery can help ensure your recovery post surgery is as quick and complete as possible. Post surgery, physiotherapy is often a key component of effective rehabilitation, getting you back to your normal routine safely and efficiently. 


Acupuncture originates in traditional Chinese medicine and it involves inserting thin needles into specific points to stimulate your body's natural healing process. Acupuncture may be used in your physiotherapy treatment session as a compliment to the other techniques used.  

Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vertigo can have a hugely negative effect on your ability to function on a day-to-day basis. Based on assessment findings at your first visit, vestibular rehabilitation can effectively treat vertigo. The most common sources of vertigo can be eliminated in as little as one or two treatments. 

Dizziness and feelings of being unbalanced are also common symptoms connected to concussions, post-concussion syndrome, and neck injuries (as well as many other conditions). The vestibular system often plays a role in these symptoms and specific exercises and manual techniques can be used to help alleviate them.
