State of the art modalities and individualized interventions are used to achieve return to sport, and injury prevention. Custom physiotherapy programs are designed to allow patients to achieve their maximal functional status. Home exercise programs are provided. Therapeutic taping may be used/ taught as indicated.

Spinal/Joint Manipulation/Mobilization

Gentle graded passive oscillations may be performed to soft tissue or joints, to alleviate pain or restore mobility. Very occasionally low amplitude, high velocity thrusts may be required to achieve the desired result.


Properly made orthotics can provide an artificial base of support to allow the entire body to function properly. Dysfunction of foot mechanics often leads to subsequent problems elsewhere in the body. Orthotics are prescribed based on a thorough examination of the entire lower portion of the body, from the lumbar spine to the toes. Orthotic are custom made from a lab using a casted mold of your foot, and can provide either maximum support, or cushioning and relief from excessive pressure.
