Physiotherapists are experts on movement and function. We are university-trained and have advanced understanding of how the body moves, what keeps it from moving and how to restore mobility. Think of physiotherapists as your body mechanics: we keep you moving for life.


What to expect:


To ensure your time in therapy and at home is used effectively to reach your goals, your therapist will:

  • assess your symptoms
  • access any imaging- X-ray, MRI results and review with you
  • diagnose your condition
  • devise a treatment plan and treat your condition
  • continually evaluate the effect of treatment on your condition and adjust the treatment plan if necessary;
  • help you to manage your condition to prevent re-occurrence of problems
  • communicate with any other health professionals involved with your condition, such as your doctor, to ensure a united approach to achieving your goals


At Active Living Physiotherapy our therapists practice evidence-based physio techniques; this means we keep up to date with the latest in medical and sports science research to help us select treatments that have been scientifically proven to help your condition.


At Active Living Physiotherapy all our appointments are one-on-one. Patients can rest assured that they have the therapist’s undivided attention for the entire appointment time.

Your physiotherapist may use the following to treat your condition:

  • education so you understand your condition, advice on posture, exercise, workplace and lifestyle habits.
  • exercise therapy (to be done at home, in the clinic, or at a location of your choice)
  • manual therapy (this means the physiotherapist using their hands usually to loosen a tight joint or muscle, or using hands-on techniques to guide your movement patterns
  • dry needling techniques (link to IMS HERE)
  • ultrasound or electrotherapy - modalities used to speed up the healing or to recruit certain muscles
  • taping - using either sports tape or “kinesio tape”- often used to protect an injured area, recruit muscles, or provide postural cues.

At Active Living Physiotherapy your therapist works as part of a team, communicating with you and your other health-care providers or coaches/trainers. The success of your physiotherapy program requires your commitment: you will probably be required to participate in an exercise program or some modifications to your postural or lifestyle habits. Your dedication to this homework will help you improve more quickly and achieve your goals as soon as possible.
