Determining the source of neck pain can be a difficult task. Quite often, it is in fact related to a back problem. The physiotherapists and other health practitioners at our clinic are here to help identify the true cause of your pain so you can start to feel better and return to the activities you love, whether it be sports, exercise, or simply the activities of everyday life.
Many of our patients, including a growing number of young athletes, present at our clinic with ACL injuries. This is a troubling trend in sports medicine, but the good news is that preventive programs can significantly reduce the risks. Our ACL Prevention Program - which we provide to sports teams at no cost - is not only designed to help reduce the risk of injury, but it also helps the athlete perform at a higher level. However, if you are looking for a sports doctor because you already have this injury, please do give us a call. We have experts with vast experience in treating athletes of all ages and levels who will help you recover and get back in the game.
Some advice for the sports afficionado: do not push through pain. That pain is an indication that something is wrong. Apply ice and rest the area for a couple of days. If the pain returns or persists, visit a sports medicine professional to prevent the kind of additional damage that leads to chronic pain.

We are excited to announce that shockwave therapy is available at our downtown Toronto location. While the device that delivers this treatment is a handheld transmitter, it is not to be confused with a magic wand. The science behind this therapy is valid and has demonstrated its effectiveness in decreasing pain and improving function; however, it is important to discover and correct the underlying reason for your pain or reduced mobility. The shockwave pulses promote repair and regeneration, and can be a valuable addition to your complete treatment plan.
Physio is concerned with movement and function in the human body, with the goals of aiding in recovery from injury, reducing pain, preventing future injury and/or improving mobility and flexibility. The techniques a physiotherapist uses to achieve these goals include hands-on therapy, ultrasound or electrical stimulation of the affected area, prescribed exercises, heat and/or ice, and patient education. Through these techniques, physio is able to treat such conditions as sports injuries, arthritis, repetitive strain injuries, back & neck pain and so on.
