Physical therapy involves the interaction between physical therapist, patients/clients, other health care professionals, families, care givers, and communities in a process where movement potential is assessed and diagnosed and goals are agreed upon. Physical therapy is performed by a physical therapist (PT) or physiotherapist (physio), and sometimes services are provided by a physical therapist assistant (PTA) acting under their direction.

TDN involves multiple advances of a small needle into the muscle in the region of a “trigger point”. The aim of dry needling is to achieve a local twitch response to release muscle tension and pain. It is an effective treatment for acute or chronic pain with very few side effects. A healthy muscle feels very little discomfort with insertion of a needle. However, if the muscle has active trigger points, the individual will feel a sensation like a muscle cramp or possibly a reproduction of their pain. Sometimes it feels like a deep ache, or perhaps a burning sensation. This results in a deactiviation of the trigger point, reducing pain, improving mobility and restoring normal function to the involved muscle.Read more

FMS is a screening process which looks at movement patterns in the body that are key to normal function. By screening these movement patterns, the FMS identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. The FMS is a 7 step process which takes 10-15 minutes and is designed to predict a person’s risk for injury at any fitness level. It can further identify problem areas that may predispose an individual to injury during sport, work, or recreational activities.Read more
“I had a knee injury that persisted over a year. I was believing I might need surgery. A friend recommended Apex and Rob was the man of the day! He worked my knee and demonstrated several strengthening exercises. I experienced results after the first treatment and just 7 visits later, yielded a world of healing. This was way back in April & May. I am still delighted and this Labor Day weekend I am getting skis for a long awaited ski season ahead. My heartfelt thanks to Rob, Brooke, and Rachael at the front desk and the whole Apex team. Thank You! I recommend you guys to everyone”.Phil Mabarak
