Meniscal tears

The meniscus (plural menisci) of the knee are cartilage crescents that attach to the broad upper surface of the tibia (shin) bone. Injuries can result from sporting events, daily event or can even result from an unknown origin.

a HIDDEN CAUSE OF KNEE AND BACK PAIN

Your gluteal muscles, commonly known as your butt, are the muscles that you're sitting on and likely not using at all as you're reading this. If you’re lying down they are the muscles that kick your leg to the ceiling when you’re lying on your side (hip abduction) or your stomach (hip extension).

Sports injuries and pitching pain

Throwing involves more than just the muscles of the shoulder. Pitching is more than just throwing hard. Pitching can be considered as 6 phases of motion that simplistically link the pitcher’s arm to their shoulder girdle, trunk, hips and legs.

Ankle sprains

One of the most common sporting injuries is a sprained ankle. Lateral ankle sprains usually occur with a rolling in (inversion) of the ankle. Ankle sprains are often sustained during a mis-step, giving out on a pivoting movement or landing on an opponent’s foot during a jump. If the speed of the force is too quick or great for the muscular system to react the result can be an injury to the non-muscular structures of the ankle.

The most amazing physiotherapists work here. They are caring and compassionate and provide a high quality of care. I recommend the staff here. Each one has extra qualifications in manipulation physiotherapy so the therapists do hands on therapy instead of putting you just on a machine. Special thanks to Darryl who is helping me with post knee replacement recovery.

Saw Darryl once for recurring low back and hamstring issues related to running. He suggested a small tweak to my running technique - I haven't had the issues since. Front desk staff also very receptive. Highly recommend this clinic.

I'm so glad I came to know of this clinic. I've seen many other physiotherapists / chiropractors, but this clinic is truly focused on client centered care. Darryl is extremely thorough with his assessments and gives detailed explanations of how the body works and identifies what treatment is required to target the problem area(s). Highly recommend this clinic.

I have been coming to Family Physiotherapy for about 10 years. I am indebted to Tanya; Darryl & Peter. Everyone; from staff at the front desk to therapists, are friendly; professional & accomodating. Peter helped me to recover post the Boston Marathon & today I worked out for the first time in 5 weeks after suffering a concussion & whiplash- thanks to Peter’s “ golden hands” .
