What is Physiotherapy?
Adopting patient-centred approach, our physiotherapists use evidence-informed knowledge of rehabilitation sciences, anatomy, kinesiology and physiology to assess, treat, and manage pain, injuries, movement dysfunction, and chronic conditions. The goal of physiotherapy is to empower, promote independence and improve the quality of life for British Columbians across all ages and abilities.
Physiotherapists (or physical therapists) will work with you to put together a treatment plan, for your condition or injury, so you can get back to enjoying life and the activities you love.
Fascial Stretch Therapy
Poor posture is a sweeping epidemic afflicting almost every person in the world. In Canada alone, over 50% of the working population has lower back pain! The sight of a forward head position, rounded shoulders, internally rotated arms, and anterior-tilted pelvis is commonplace in offices, at restaurants, and in the gym. If these patterns are left unchecked, injury rates increase, breath and mood can be impeded, and performance diminished. We were given all the athletic ability and function we need as an infant, however, through our lifestyle today, our biology has changed for the worse.
FST is a pain-free system of assisted stretching which focuses active rehabilitation on the muscles, joints, and connective tissue. With the client on a treatment table, the therapist will help you stabilize your body as you are gently helped into specific positions to help facilitate relaxation and movement into your joints and body.
