Physiotherapy

Our physiotherapy team aims to promote mobility, function and quality of life through examination diagnosis, prognosis and physical intervention. Our licensed physiotherapist can help our clients manage, improve and/or cure a wide range of health conditions, from recent injuries, to chronic aches and pains, and much more. We offer our clients a free assessment with our physiotherapist as we know it will be of tremendous value in helping our clients achieve their health and wellness goals.

At AYG, we also have the option of prescribing a clinical conditioning program conducted under the guidance of a physiotherapist. This allows you to be supervised by a health professional, while performing specific exercises to meet your needs. An individualized conditioning program helps to improve your level of fitness/strength/balance, aids with weight loss, and can prevent injury/re-injury. For this reason, we believe personal training sessions can help with a variety of issues whether you have just completed a physiotherapy program or not.  We also welcome clients who have not had an injury and/or have not attended a physiotherapy program in the past.

Athletic Therapy

Our Athletic Therapists are experts in preventing and rapidly rehabilitating injuries to your muscles, bones and joints. Contrary to popular belief, ATs don’t just treat elite or professional athletes, they can treat everyone, from kids to seniors. They are experts skilled in active rehabilitation that asses the whole body and treat the cause. Our Certified Athletic Therapists assess injuries and conditions, and use contemporary rehabilitative techniques, therapeutic modalities, soft tissue mobilization, & physical reconditioning.

Chiropractic

Chiropractors are specialists in manual adjustments of the vertebrae, spine and other joints of the body. Adjustments of these joints can relieve pain and improve range of motion and joint performance, as well as ensure joint integrity – preventing early onset joint degeneration! Malalignment in joints can occur for a number of reasons and is common in all populations – especially active people! Muscular imbalances created by improper movement patterns can create joint disturbances. Strengthening with joint malalignments can worsen these muscle imbalances, causing decreased strength and performance and hinder you from reaching your functional and physical goals. Chiropractors are trained to prescribe therapeutic exercise programs, provide nutritional counselling, and recommend injury prevention and rehabilitation strategies.

Kinesiology

Kinesiology focuses on preventing and managing injury and helping you reach peak physical performance. Our Kinesiologist uses evidence- based practice to develop programs to help you get and stay fit and perform at your optimum level.

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. Massage therapy can help to; reduce/eliminate pain; improve joint mobility; improve circulation; improve lymphatic drainage, reduce muscular tension.

The best news is, for your benefit, all of these services can be claimed through your insurance/benefits plan.
