Physiotherapy is a direct access primary health care profession. Physiotherapists combine in-depth knowledge of how the body works with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability.
With your independence in mind, a physiotherapist’s goal is to restore, maintain and maximize your strength, function, movement and overall wellbeing. Physiotherapists have completed a university degree in physiotherapy and are registered with the Newfoundland and Labrador College of Physiotherapists.

Acupuncture is a therapeutic method used to encourage natural healing, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles through the skin and tissues at specific points on the body. There is no injection of any substance and the treatment itself causes minimal discomfort.
Acupuncture stimulates the body to produce its own pain relieving chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins help to block pathways that relay pain messages from the body to the brain, resulting in relief of pain and general relaxation.
Dry needling is a form of acupuncture treatment that is most often used to treat muscular and myofascial pain. During dry needling treatments, an acupuncture needle is inserted through the skin and underlying muscular tissue to release a “trigger point”, or taught band of tissue which is often sensitive and irritable to touch and can cause significant pain and discomfort. No fluid is injected into the body during a dry needling treatment. Dry needling helps to reduce tenderness and sensitivity located within a muscle, thus helping to reduce pain and improve patient function. Dry needling can also be used to reduce soreness and stiffness in the body and restore a more natural movement pattern. Dry needling is often used in conjunction with exercise based therapy to optimize patient recovery.
