When you see more than one clinician, the team works together to ensure the best possible outcome. The needs of the patient are at the heart of the treatment plan and you are included in the process. The patient’s voice comes first.

Everyone has a unique experience when it comes to pain, and their goal will also be unique.

  • Improved sense of wellness

  • Return to activity

Open communication. Two-way dialogue.

At your first appointment we’ll:

  • Explore your pain experience together

  • Work with you to create a personalized treatment plan

Our goal is to help you lessen pain and increase control in a way that works for you.

Your treatment is based on your needs and can change as you start to feel more confident in your body’s ability. It can include:

  • Massage
  • Joint mobilization
  • A more exercise-focused approach
  • Naturopathic medicine

Incorporating naturopathic medicine can help uncover the root cause of pain patterns and give you tools like mind-body medicine approaches, injection therapies, and herbal and pharmaceutical relief to help you better understand and work with your pain.

We want your feedback

The treatment plan is flexible. You can help redesign your care if you feel like something is not working for you.
