Our Practice

Our therapists have in-depth knowledge, education and training in the areas of the human musculoskeletal system, exercise physiology, biomechanics, and basic emergency care. Within this, our scope of practice is divided into four practice domains:

  1. Injury prevention

  2. Physical assessment

  3. Rehabilitation / Treatment

  4. Sports performance and functional training
