Manual Therapy

Manual Therapy is a treatment approach where the hands of the physiotherapist directly contact the client’s body to treat the joints, muscles and soft tissues. Benefits of this hands-on technique include pain relief, increased range of motion, reducing tissue inflammation, and improving function. At Physiolab, we are proud of our therapists’ strong backgrounds in manual therapy. It is one of our primary tools in dealing with injuries.

Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS)

Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) is a needling technique used for acute and chronic pain of neuropathic origin. It is grounded in Western Medical Science. It involves the insertion of fine acupuncture needles into the body targeting muscles that have contracted and become shortened. It is problems at these points that are often at the root of chronic pain. As a result, the muscle tension will release allowing for an improvement in function of the injured muscle. IMS is often effective when all other forms of therapy have failed.


Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine sterile needles into specific points on the body. Unlike intramuscular stimulation, it is rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, which focuses on the entire body as a whole. Physiotherapists use acupuncture as a treatment to balance the body’s energy, thereby promoting healing, decreasing pain, and increasing function.

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is the art of manual manipulation of the soft tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments) to assess and to enhance a person’s health and well-being. Our clinicians are college trained and are experienced in various types of massage therapy methods. Massage therapy can help to reduce stress and anxiety, relax muscles, rehabilitate injuries, reduce pain, and promote overall wellness.

Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a safe, effective, and non-invasive treatment of the spine. During the session, the spine is gently and gradually stretched, relieving pressure to the discs, joints, and musculuar tissues, while enhancing the body’s own natural healing abilities. It can be used to treat various conditions of the spine such as herniated or bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, sciatic leg pain, and spondylosis. At Physiolab we use the Triton DTS 600, which is the gold standard in spinal decompression therapy.

Clinical Pilates

Clinical Pilates is a form of active rehabilitation that can be done on the mat or the reformer. We can help you achieve your goals through using the Pilates principles and tailoring the Pilates repertoire to your individual needs.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

Pelvic Floor Therapy is a subset of physical therapy that can help individuals struggling with symptoms of:
-urinary incontinence
-fecal incontinence
-painful intercourse
-pregnancy/postpartum care
-diastasis rectus abdominis
-tailbone/coccyx pain
-perineal pain

A pelvic floor assessment can include both an internal and external exam of the muscles and structures of the pelvis.


Through skilled palpation and hands on treatment, our Osteopathic practitioner can tap into the body’s own healing mechanisms to get long lasting results. The range and diversity of techniques used by osteopaths is large, and it’s important to emphasize that osteopathy is not solely focused on cranial, visceral, or structural approaches. Rather it encompasses a blended approach that integrates all these methods. Our osteopath ensures that the patient’s needs are respected and supported throughout the treatment process.
