  • Your OT can work independently or with your Doctor, Physiotherapist, Chiropractor or Massage Therapist as a team dedicated to your recovery

Individuals

pediatric OT

Our OTs have years of experience working with children and families to address problems at home or at school. By working together with families, clinicians and schools, we examine the relationship between your child’s difficulties, development and subjective experiences. This understanding leads to new strategies to support your child to enjoy activities or environments that have been stressful or off-limits. Read More 

Clinicians

Normal daily activities can cause or aggravate your patient’s musculoskeletal conditions and block treatment goals.   This is especially the case for tasks that require static muscular contraction, which can damage muscles and joints (over time) by depriving them of circulation.  It is also the case for repetitive stressful movements, even seemingly gentle ones, with insufficient time for tissue recovery. Read More

Organizations

Productivity and employee morale suffer when people have pain at work.  Mental speed is slower and people are more irritable, which compromises efficient cooperation and teamwork. From a practical perspective, the problem is that most conventional workstations were designed only in terms of the task objectives without taking into consideration how the human body actually works. leading to:

  • pain
  • fatigue
  • slow mental performance
  • decreased productivity
  • decreased morale
  • increased workplace conflict
  • pain-related stress
  • increased sick days
  • WorkSafe/WCB claims
  • increased costs for benefits programs
