Using hands-on techniques, our therapists assess, diagnose and treat the muscles, joints, nerves and fascia. Manual therapy techniques may include myofascial release, spinal manipulation and joint, nerve and soft tissue mobilization.
Exercise Prescription + Active Rehabilitation
Every body moves differently. That’s why a personalized and structured exercise program that addresses your specific injuries or movement goals is so important in getting you to move forward. From pre-surgical care to getting back in the game, we’ve got you.
Acupuncture / Dry Needling
Acupuncture and dry needling involve stimulating specific meridian and trigger point sites (commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints) with thin, sterile needles; this may help to decrease pain and relieve muscle tension.
To compliment the other forms of treatment that we offer, we can provide therapeutic modalities such as Therapeutic Ultrasound, Interferential Current (IFC), Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) and Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation.
Strength + Conditioning
Optimal physical performance and injury prevention require the right balance of technique, flexibility, strength, and motor control. Not only do we talk the talk, but our staff has walked the walk – as high-performance athletes, yogis, runners and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists. Our team is equipped to push you to be your best!
Specific taping techniques can change the way that we experience movement, provide support to joints and tissues, unload painful structures and promote awareness. In addition to therapeutic taping, our therapists can also provide preventative taping for sport.
Registered Massage Therapy
Registered Massage Therapists are regulated health professionals who are trained to assess and treat physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissue and joints of the body using a mostly hands-on approach. Massage therapy can also be used to prevent injuries, for therapeutic relaxation, to alleviate stress, and to manage acute and chronic pain. Our highly skilled massage therapists will help you to identify those areas in your body that need some extra attention and select the most appropriate massage techniques to restore optimal tissue health.
Custom Orthotics + Bracing
Our Certified Pedorthist is trained in the casting, manufacturing, fitting and adjusting of custom orthotics, custom orthopaedic footwear and custom knee braces. Each full biomechanical assessment includes gait analysis, footwear analysis and a general review of your foot health. Our clinic also carries a selection of over the counter bracing options for tennis elbow, ankle sprains, patellofemoral pain and thumb/wrist pain.
Pre + Post-Operative Therapy
Research has shown that being in good physical condition before surgery may improve post-surgical outcomes. In addition to creating and leading you through your own personalized rehabilitation program, our team can also answer any general questions that you may have regarding your surgery, educate you on the anatomy of the region, and give you an idea of what to expect after surgery.
Prenatal and Postpartum Health
The [mend] family appreciates that pregnancy and delivery can be both a wonderful and challenging experience. It’s essential to listen to your body during/after your pregnancy. Our therapists can help you to identify affected body structures (i.e. diastasis rectus abdominis, tendinopathies, pelvic girdle/sacroiliac joint pain) and develop strategies for function as your body changes and recovers.
Bone Health and Healthy Aging
Our team will customize a fun, safe and manageable exercise program that promotes strength, balance and mobility — while including the weight bearing exercises crucial to decreasing the risk of falls and fractures, and promoting bone health.
