Evaluators, restorers, maintainer and maximizers of physical function! Physiotherapists use their in-depth knowledge of how the body works to assess, diagnose and treat your specific illness, injury, pain and disability. They can also help you with prevention of injury, disease and illness and overall balanced health and wellness.
Your physiotherapist will start with an assessment that may include measures of body functions, strength and weakness testing, and observed or instrumented analysis of gait, posture, balance, joint range of motion, and functional movement. At BodyWorx Vitality Inc., we take a holistic approach using a variety of treatments to help decrease pain, improve joint mobility, increase strength, restore physical function, and prevent future injury.
In addition to muscle and joint pain, other specialized conditions we treat are neurological disorders such as stroke and multiple sclerosis and degenerative conditions such as arthritis and degenerative disc disease.
The many layers of our muscles and connective tissue can build up tension, knots and therefore cause pain. There are a variety of techniques that our highly trained massage therapists use to enhance function and relieve pain. They are also vital to aid in the healing process, promote relaxation, relieve tension, promote circulation, increase flexibility and improve well-being.
Your massage therapist with assess your needs and discuss your goals to find the treatment technique best suited for you.

Acupuncture is a healing technique that has been used for over 2,500 years. It can be extremely helpful in reducing pain and restoring the body to normal function – no drugs required!. The needles alone create the beneficial effects of acupuncture which can improve mood and energy, help to manage pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. It is a safe, effective treatment used as an alternative to medications or even surgery. Relief has been known to come from this technique when traditional medical therapy has failed.
Without proper support the foundation of your body can be compromised. If your feet are not in a good biomechanical position this can lead to injury and pain.
Custom orthotics are designed to align the foot and ankle into the most natural and joint-friently position. They are designed to correct your specific foot imbalances. Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes – they reduce the stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back to proper alignment.
When you wear a custom orthotic your body senses, responds and actually changes its reaction during standing and walking. If you have localized foot pain, bunions, hammer toes, arch and/or heel pain, leg/knee pain, hip or back pain, it might be time for you to get fitted for orthotics.
That’s great news! However, we all know as we get older, our bodies change and old habits die hard. Having a proactive approach to overall health and mobility starts with strong foundations.
Our highly skilled Chiropodist will assess your lower limbs, feet, standing posture and walking to design a specific plan to alleviate of foot and lower limb pain and dysfunction. Treatment can include: custom orthotics and/or shoes, compression stockings, client education and other foot care problems due to systemic conditions such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.
