The approach we take at Summit Physiotherapy is completely dependent on the needs of our clients. Whether you’re suffering from a sports injury, chronic pain or an injury from a motor vehicle accident or in need of help after a fracture or surgery, we put our vast amount of experience to work for you.
Our experience has shown us that the best treatment plans are those that are customized, drawing on a range of techniques and methods. This may include our hands-on manual therapy, but we’ll also draw from massage therapy, acupuncture, visceral release, craniosacral therapy, intramuscular stimulation (IMS) and use specialized machines like ultrasound.
We strive to use the methods that make sense for you and your health, and get you feeling better as quickly as possible.
We are your St. Albert physiotherapy clinic. We offer our clients relief from a huge variety of physiotherapy problems.
Manual therapy involves the use of a therapist’s hands to help restore the function and balance of the connective tissues, muscle and joint that are causing pain.
Regular massage therapy treatments can effectively reduce muscle tension, improve circulation and mobility, reduce or eliminate joint pain, and improve immune system functioning.
The popularity of acupuncture continues to grow, as more and more people are looking for ways to treat their pain and injuries.
Using a hands-on technique, a therapist monitors those natural rhythms in an effort to find and correct problems throughout your body. The therapist then uses a light touch to release these problem areas, thereby relieving pain.
Visceral release is an effective, hands-on technique used to address many issues like back and hip pain, sciatica, migraines, whiplash, scoliosis, chronic shoulder pain and TMJ.
IMS takes small needles, the same as those used in acupuncture, and inserts them into the muscles causing pain and dysfunction. The dry needling technique calms the nerves that supply those muscles groups and in turn, the muscles relax and are not as irritable or sensitive. This ultimately relieves your pain.
Treatment of TMJ disorders
Our specialists provide relief from painful temporomandibular disorders (TMD) using a variety of treatment approaches.
