New Injury or Ongoing Pain / Tension ?

We help you improve your mobility, strength, function, and well-being through Physiotherapy

What is Physiotherapy?


Physiotherapy is a collaborative treatment approach to restore, maintain, and optimize a client’s mobility, strength, function, well-being, and overall quality of life. Physiotherapists are recognized for their expertise in non-surgical treatment of a wide range of musculoskeletal and orthopaedic conditions and injuries.

Why choose Physiotherapy at Active Therapy?


  • Provide one-on-one treatments (we do not treat multiple clients at a time, nor will we use any assistants or support staff. Your treatment is spent 100% of the time with the physiotherapist)
  • Your session is conducted in a private physiotherapy room with a beautiful mountain view (privacy and confidentiality is very important to us. There is no open gym model or curtains separating treatment stations)
  • We use the most up to date evidence-based methods to assess, diagnose, and treat your injury or ongoing concern
  • Manual therapy (improving range of motion through joint mobilizations)
  • Soft tissue release & active release technique (ART)
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Functional dry needling (FDN) & intramuscular stimulation (IMS)
  • Individualized treatment plans promoting client-centered care
  • Exercise prescription: strengthening, stretching, balance, and functional mobility (you will be emailed a digital and personalized home exercise program consisting of pictures, videos, along with a detailed description for your convenience)
  • Holistic care: for ongoing issues we may need to address multiple factors and your body as a whole
  • Sports injuries & rehabilitation – professional & recreational athletes
  • Taping & bracing
  • Multidisciplinary & integrated approach: to truly address the root cause of your concerns, referral to other practitioners to work as a team may be indicated
