Neurological Physiotherapy/Athletic Therapy/Kinesiology > Rehabilitation services for individuals with neurological conditions, such as Stroke, Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, and more.

Paediatric Physiotherapy > Physiotherapy services for children with orthopaedic and neurological conditions including, but not limited to gross motor delay, developmental coordination disorder, cerebral palsy, and hypertonia or hypotonia.

Neurological Occupational Therapy > Occupational therapy from a neurological perspective focuses on facilitating individuals living with neurological conditions to maximize and enable independence with meaningful activities and with all aspects of daily living.

Speech Therapy > Speech Language Pathologists specialize in communication and feeding and swallowing disorders. They work with many different patient populations including brain injury, stroke, Parkinson's Disease, and people who stutter.

Neurological Music Therapy > Neurologic Music Therapy is an advanced music therapy practice that uses evidence-based techniques applying music and rhythm to directly affect speech, cognitive, and physical function.

Massage Therapy > Massage therapists are trained to use hands on techniques to treat the body’s soft tissue and joints. Massage as a therapy can be complimentary to other therapies or used on its own.

Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation > Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a specialized area that can assist people of all ages and gender. Therapists in this field use a combination of internal assessment, hands-on treatment techniques, muscle activation biofeedback and customized exercise prescription to address pain, leakage, muscle strength and extensibility of the pelvic floor musculature.

Facial Neuromuscular Retraining > Facial neuromuscular retraining is a technique used to treat individuals who have paralysis or paresis of the facial muscles resulting from injury or disease to their facial nerve. 

Concussion, Dizziness, Balance Challenges

Balance & Vestibular Rehabilitation > Vestibular conditions can range in presentation from balance problems to very nauseating and disabling symptoms of vertigo and dizziness. Treatment and rehabilitation are specifically tailored to address our client’s symptoms and needs.

Concussion (mild TBI) Rehabilitation > Treatment for a concussion can vary for every individual, but effective concussion management will put an emphasis on planning and pacing, vision rehabilitation, vestibular training, gait, balance and cardiovascular training along with education on return to work or return to activity.

Standing and Walking

Lokomat® Gait Training > The Lokomat® is a driven gait orthosis that automates or assists walking movements on a treadmill.

Body Weight-supported Treadmill Training > Our harness and treadmill system can be used to provide a safe environment for stepping and gait without the fear of falling.

Standing Program > Support from a standing fram or tilt table can be used to splint the lower limbs and trunk to enable patients to adopt the upright posture of standing against gravity.

Muscle Activation - Electrical Stimulation

Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Bike Therapy > FES cycling uses co-ordinated electrical stimulation to create a cycling pattern.

MyndMove Therapy> Using an 8-channelled functional electrical stimulation (FES) device, MyndMove’s aim is to improve purposeful movement of a client’s arm and hand.

Needling Services

Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) > Intramuscular stimulation (IMS) or Functional Dry Needling (FDN) involves inserting a tiny monofilament needle into a muscle in order to release shortened bands of muscles tissue and decrease trigger point activity.
Acupuncture > Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins – the body’s natural pain-relieving neurohormones – through the insertion of needles into specific anatomical points (acupuncture points) to encourage natural healing.

 

In the Community

Home Based Therapy > We provide home visits within our Vancouver, Victoria, and Surrey communities to clients who are unable to come to the clinic for assessment and treatment.

Hydrotherapy > Buoyant forces provides a deweighting effect for ease of weight-bearing and walking, and the water can also provide resistance to active movement in order to improve muscle strength and control. 

Out and About (Recreation Programs) > This Vancouver program provides the opportunity for individuals to try adapted and modified sports with the help of a Kinesiologist.
