Physiotherapists assess, diagnose and treat problems that are caused by global movement dysfunctions. Using an eclectic approach, the physiotherapists are “manual therapists”, possessing extensive “hands-on” skills that are superior to traditional physiotherapy modalities. we also recognize the importance of great customer experience and strive to ensure our clients are well taken care of.
Bodywork complements physiotherapy/chiropractic in your road to recovery. Focusing on soft tissue manipulation to re-calibrate and optimize human posture, function, and performance.
Our massage therapists are unique in their approach as they utilize various soft-tissue techniques to treat underlying soft tissue related distortions that address postural and movement dysfunctions, sport injuries, and pain.
At APEX, our chiropractic doctors utilize a modern approach that focuses on addressing neurostructural imbalances and shifts of the spine as it relates to the integrity of the nervous system. Correcting these imbalances removes stress and pressure on the nervous system, allowing the body to recover, function, and perform optimally. Our chiropractic doctors are 2 of the few in Ontario that are certified torque release practitioners.
Acupuncture & IMS
Acupuncture & IMS are needling techniques that involve the insertion of very fine needles into specific points in the body to effectively reset muscle motor control of the nervous system.
Acupuncture follows traditional chinese medicine to help reduce pain and promote healing. It also helps to reduce tone/tightness in muscle bands/trigger points that may contribute to both pain and dysfunction. Acupuncture may be utilized by our physiotherapists to help complement your treatment.
Global Performance Assessment (GPA)
Involves testing fundamental elements that are essential for optimal performance. This tool can also help identify if you may have an increased risk of injury during physical training or performance. After the assessment, a report is generated that will indicate how well your body is functioning. APEX will prescribe individualized recommendations that identify the areas you will need to focus on. This test is usually performed to obtain a benchmark and is used as a monitoring tool to track training progress for athletes pre-season, in-season, post-season.
During a work out or training, muscles actually break down, causing inflammation that shows up as aches and soreness a day or two after. Resting is important to allow the nervous system and muscles to recover before putting them through the training cycle again. APEX post-training/performance recovery (massage therapy & physiotherapy) effectively accelerates muscle recovery/growth while also decreasing inflammation induced by a strenuous workout. You will be less sore and heal faster, allowing you recover, train, and perform at optimal levels.
