What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy refers to the practice of using manual therapy, exercises, stretches, and other techniques to promote, maintain, and restore physical function and mobility. Physiotherapists are licensed healthcare professionals who assess, diagnose, and treat various musculoskeletal and neurological conditions and injuries.Some common areas that physiotherapists provide treatment for include musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain, sprains, and strains, as well as pre and post-operative care, and sports injuries. Physiotherapy treatment plans are tailored to the patient's specific needs to achieve the best possible outcomes. You do not need a referral for physiotherapy treatment.

Integrated Dry needling (DN) is a treatment technique targeting pain and dysfunction caused by trigger points, or a taut band or knot in a muscle. DN involves a brief insertion of the needle into the trigger point and is repeated using a pistoning technique, until the trigger point releases. The end result is decreased musculoskeletal pain and improved muscle tone and range of motion.
