Here is are some of specialized approches we offer.

Manual therapy

Manual therapy is a highly skilled hands-on method of assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. It can be beneficial for sports injuries and for more chronic problems like arthritis. A range of manual techniques are used including joint mobilisation and manipulation as well as myofascial release to release muscle tension. Although the core of manual therapy is the hands-on approach, it also includes assessment and correction of posture and biomechanics, education on self-management, therapeutic exercises and more. This research-based approach helps patients get better, recover faster and return to pain-free living.

In 1998, Christine completed her advanced training in manual and manipulative and became a fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Therapy which is recognized internationally.

Dry needling

Dry needling uses an acupuncture needle to release trigger points found in tight muscles. It has been shown to decrease myofascial pain, reduces muscle tension and accelerates the return to normal activity. It can be used for most musculoskeletal conditions and is also effective for tension headaches.

Christine started dry needling while working in Australia in 2006. In 2013-2014 she completed further courses to receive her accreditation to use dry needling from the Quebec Order of Physiotherapy.

Vestibular rehabilitation

Vestibular rehabilitation is a specialized form of therapy that treats various vestibular disorders causing dizziness, imbalance and falls. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (B.P.P.V) is a common disorder that can often be resolved with one treatment. For other disorders, an exercise-based program is designed for each patient’s specific problem.

Christine received her training in vestibular rehabilitation from Alain Godbout and Bernard Tonks in 2006-2007. In 2016, she completed an advanced vestibular rehabilitation course.
