Update – May 10, 2023:

In accordance with The College of Physiotherapists of Manitoba, the use of masks is no longer required at our clinic. If you’d like to wear a mask to your appointment, please feel free. If you’d prefer that your treating therapist wear a mask during your treatment session, please let us know and your therapist would be happy to put one on.

For those individuals that would prefer to receive physiotherapy services in the comfort of their own home, (or at the cottage), we will continue to provide virtual appointments.

To book your appointment, or for more information, please call 204-261-7190.

Cupping is a technique used by health care practitioners to create suction on the skin using cups made of glass or silicone. The cups are left on for a set period of time, often just a few minutes. The suction creates an increase in blood flow to the tissues under the cup. Alternatively, lotion may be applied to the skin and the cups can be suctioned to the skin and massaged along the body.

The goal of this type of treatment is to improve circulation to the tissues under the cup, reduce inflammation, improve muscle and fascial mobility, improve range of motion, and/or reduce pain.

Pediatric Physiotherapy

Our therapists can conduct an assessment, and create an individualized therapy program for a child which may include in-clinic treatments (involving play-type activities), education to the parents/care-giver and a home exercise program. We provide therapy for children between 0-3 years of age who are experiencing:

1. Developmental Delays

When a child’s expected rate of development does not meet the typical timelines for achieving these milestones, it’s called a developmental delay. In comparison to their peers, the child may have difficulty rolling, crawling, sitting, walking, or doing fine motor skills.

2. Plagiocephaly

This is a condition characterized by the flattening of one side of a baby’s head. The flattening is often at the back or back/side of the head, created by pressure on the head when an infant spends a lot of time in one position.

3. Torticollis

Torticollis is a condition where a baby’s neck muscles tighten causing their head to turn to one side. It can be troublesome for them to turn their head which can make breastfeeding on one side difficult compared to the other. There can be a soft lump in one of their neck muscles. Sometimes plagiocephaly develops from lying in one position all the time.

Vestibular Physiotherapy

The vestibular system is the body system that contributes to balance, spatial awareness and also coordinates eye movements. When there is disease or injury within this system, a patient can experience symptoms that could include dizziness, nausea, spinning sensations, poor balance, or headaches. Vestibular Physiotherapy works to either restore normal vestibular function or teach the body how to adapt appropriately to decrease or resolve symptoms and restore quality of life. Common vestibular disorders that can be treated with Vestibular Physiotherapy are Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), Meniere’s Disease, Labyrinthitis, and Neuritis.

Myofascial techniques

These hands on treatments to the muscle and fascia improve movement, increase artery and nerve flow and decrease pain.

Spinal and Joint Mobilization/Manipulation

Mobilization is a repetitive, gentle movement which improves function through restoring range and decreasing pain. Manipulation is a passive, quick movement of small amplitude applied to a stiff joint to improve movement.


We use disposable, sterile needles to treat pain and muscle spasm or increased tone. The very thin needles are inserted into the muscle and there is minimal discomfort. Acupuncture can be used to treat chronic or acute injuries.

Dry Needling

A disposable acupuncture needle is inserted into a taut muscle to decrease tone and improve movement. The relaxation of the muscle that occurs helps to decrease pain and improve activity.


Patients are provided with a specific set of exercises needed to improve their condition. The patient needs to work with the physiotherapist to achieve the maximum benefit.


Custom made orthotics are covered by a number of insurance companies. Pain and dysfunction in the foot and leg are improved with the correction of poor biomechanics. Orthotics also provide shock absorption and dispersion of forces.

Post-Surgical Rehabilitation

We work closely with your surgeon to provide post-surgical rehabilitation as soon as possible after the joint replacement or surgery. Decreasing swelling, improving balance, and working on range of motion and strength are very important in your recovery.

Sports Injury Treatment

We work hard to get you back to your activity as soon as possible. This is based on stages of healing and the sport specific requirements.


Taping is used to support or immobilize an acutely injured joint. It helps to prevent further stresses to the healing ligaments and decrease abnormal biomechanics.

Cervical and Lumbar Computerized Traction

Traction is used for treatment of inflamed nerves and joint hypomobility in the neck or back.
