VIDEO: Assessment & Treatment


Damien Cummins

Physiotherapist, Practice Director

Wednesday, December 1, 2021


To successfully treat we must first effectively evaluate. During your assessment, we will engage you to understand and explore why you have your injury. You will learn about how your body works biomechanically and how to better control your movement. Most importantly, by being actively involved in the evaluation and treatment process you will learn how best to prevent future injuries. You will have the power to maintain an ease of movement in life. You will reduce your dependency on medical intervention and gain lifelong pain management and preventative skills.


You will find that when you receive treatment at our clinic you will be expected to actively move with our guidance through patterns and directions of movement that ultimately allows improved function. No treatment that we provide is passive. We do not use electrotherapeutic machines because we believe other active and self-applied treatment options are just as effective, more economical, more eco-friendly and more empowering for you. Even our massage therapy sessions have an active bias.
