REP Physio offers the following services at both our Summerside and Westbrook locations.

Physiotherapy

Our physiotherapists endeavour to make your time at our clinic a great experience.  We realize that bodily injury can have far-reaching impacts on many aspects of your life. We incorporate up to date evidence based rehabilitation interventions, hands-on therapy, and other clinical skills in a care plan that meets the individual goals, circumstances and needs of you, the client. We also offer shockwave therapy and treat TMJ disorders. Speak to one of our therapists to find out more.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy involves the manipulation of the body’s soft-tissues, which aids in alleviating discomfort associated with injury, occupational and emotional stresses, chronic pain and diseases, and the “wear and tear” of activities of daily living. Massage therapy can be beneficial for everyone. Our female and male massage therapists have years of clinical experience, and can help you maximize your performance and recover from injury.

Intramuscular Stimulation (Gunn IMS)/Functional Dry Needling

Often referred to as a “westernized approach” to acupuncture, these needling techniques use principles of modern medicine to help restore muscle length, normalize nerve function and decrease pain.   Both techniques are great at resolving musculoskeletal injuries, and can usually be easily incorporated into your care plan.  IMS and Dry Needling is a restricted activity. Our physiotherapists have taken additional training to incorporate these techniques into clinical practice

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient technique that uses needles inserted into specific points of the body (acupuncture points) to stimulate natural healing, restore balance, improve body function, decrease pain, and release endorphins. Acupuncture treatments are provided in a private room in a one on one setting.

Sports Injuries

 As athletes ourselves, we understand that nothing is more frustrating than not being able to compete or train due to injury.  Our therapists have a diverse sports background, including olympic weight lifting, Ironman(R) and triathlons, gymnastics, Cross Fit, soccer, pilates, mountain biking, raquet sports etc..  We treat all types of athletes and all types of athletic injuries. We have the expertise, clinical and athletic experience and knowledge to set up an individualized care plan that maximizes injury recovery and minimizes down time (if any). Let us help you maximize your performance.

Vestibular Rehabilitation

Dizziness and vertigo are among the most common symptoms that send people to see their physician. Many vertigo and dizziness symptoms come from a dysfunction of the vestibular organ, which is a small but important structure in your inner ear. The vestibular organ is critical for balance, coordination, and movement and when it’s impaired, patients can experience spinning (vertigo), dizziness, nausea, imbalance, problems with vision, and light-headedness, anxiety, among other debilitating symptoms.  Kristine Fairbanks is our vestibular trained therapist. She will be happy to help you with any vestibular dysfunction.

Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA)

Injured in a car accident? Sorry to hear that. Whether you were the driver, a passenger, or pedestrian we will rehabilitate your injuries and return you to function with care plans and interventions based on the latest medical evidence. Treatment regimes for whiplash injuries typically incorporate exercise therapy, manual therapy, massage therapy, as well as other techniques your therapist will be happy to discuss with you. We treat both in and out of protocol clients.

Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA)/Functional Movement Screen

Both the FMS and SFMA are movement screens that are designed to identify movement dysfunction and asymmetries that may be causing injury or impeding athletic performance. Rather than chasing pain, these movement screens determine the causative factor of the pain, and provide specific exercise and mobility interventions to overcome the issue(s), restore function, and maximize performance.

Running Analysis

At REP Physio we are runners and love running. If injury is stopping you from running, or you’re looking to improve running performance, a running analysis can help identify movement impairments and allow you to run your best. A running analysis begins with an analysis of your current training regime, followed by a functional movement screen and a running analysis. The results of the screen help guide a care plan and therapeutic exercise.  If booking a running analysis, please bring your running shoes.  We conduct our running analysis on an Assault AirRunner(R) treadmill.

Bracing Services

REP Physio is pleased to carry the full line of Don Joy(R) braces.  Whether you are recovering from an acute injury, are post-surgical, have a chronic injury or looking to minimize pain and dysfunction while staying active, a brace can significantly help you move and perform better.  We carry both custom and non-custom braces for most types of sport injuries, musculoskeletal dysfunction, and body areas (shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, knee, ankle, foot etc.) https://www.djoglobal.com/

Sports Concussion and Post-Concussion Syndrome

Concussion is defined as a traumatic brain injury induced by biomechanical forces.  Concussions are typically caused by a direct blow to the head, face, neck or arm.  Concussions occur in most sports with the highest incidence in football, hockey, rugby, basketball and soccer.  They can also occur in motor vehicle accidents and slip and fall type injuries. Symptoms of concussions can include both physical, cognitive, and behavioural signs.  Concussion symptoms can interfere with work, sport, scholastic and your social life.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a new non-invasive solution for chronic musculoskeletal pain.  The most common indications for shockwave therapy include painful shoulder/rotator cuff syndrome, epicondylitis (tennis/golfer’s elbow), low back pain, achilles tendon pain (tendinopathy, enthesopathy, calcific tendinopathy), plantar fasciitis, tendonitis and trigger points. Shockwave will not remove or break up bone spurs that are attached to bone, but it can help break up calcifications within soft tissues.  Any of our therapists would be happy to determine if shockwave therapy is right for you.

Diagnostic Imaging

At REP Physio,  we can refer clients directly for diagnostic imaging studies (X-ray, ultrasound, MRI) for musculoskeletal injuries/ dysfunction. Fortunately, most injuries do not require imaging studies.  We will be happy to discuss imaging options with you at your appointment if deemed clinically relevant for your recovery.
