Physical Therapy

All physical therapists at The Grange Physical Therapy are licensed to practice by the Physiotherapy Alberta College & Association.

​Our team of physical therapists will thoroughly assess, diagnose, and help treat your presenting dysfunction.  We will provide:

  • Education to help you fully understand your condition

  • A rehabilitation plan based on your goals

  • Advice on proper maintenance strategies and exercises for prevention of further injury for future care

Our therapists are advocates of hands on physical therapy and this is one of our primary techniques in your rehabilitation. Physical therapists are trained to assess for proper muscle tone and joint mobility. We will address issues such as muscle imbalance and weakness, joint instability or stiffness, and proper joint biomechanics.

Many of our therapists are also additionally trained to perform spinal and peripheral joint manipulations to aid in restoring a joint’s normal range of motion.

We are also pleased to offer physical therapy and acupuncture services in Mandarin and Cantonese.

 

Acupuncture & Needling

This service is performed by most of our physical therapists, all of which have undertaken additional training and examination by accredited institutions. All therapists providing needling services are registered with the Physiotherapy Alberta College & Association.


We offer Traditional Chinese Medicine acupuncture, electro-acupuncture,  Functional Dry Needling/IMS, and Gokavi Transverse Technique (GTT) dry needling.  These services are useful when dealing with chronic pain and deep muscle trigger points.  We also offer cupping services to help draw out toxins and relieve muscle tension and triggers.

Massage Therapy

Our massage therapy services are provided by Registered Massage Therapists who are trained to do therapeutic massage and sports massage to help treat your soft tissue dysfunctions.  Our massage therapists have also received additional training in lymphatic drainage and pregnancy massage, and some will do hot stone massage and cupping as well.

Therapeutic massage:

Can help decrease chronic and acute pain, as well as stress. Our therapists use various techniques such as trigger point release and myofascial release to help you improve function and relieve your pain.  Depending on your preference, we offer soft tissue to deep tissue massage.

Sports massage:

Designed for active people, sports massage lengthens muscles, tendons, and other connective tissue.  It combines relatively high-impact massage techniques and assistive stretches to help relieve acute muscles soreness, improve flexibility, and increase your range of motion.  If you have limited flexibility, improving your muscle tone may help you in your sport and move you in the right direction.

Lymphatic drainage:

Light, gentle massage can be done to improve and stimulate lymphatic flow in the body.  The lymphatic system is responsible for removing toxins in the body, and a blockage can affect circulatory, respiratory, muscular, and endocrine systems.  Lymphatic drainage techniques help to encourage and restore the free-flow of lymph fluid into the lymph nodes.

Pregnancy massage:

Our clinic is equipped with bolsters specifically designed for expecting mothers to enable you to lay comfortably on your side or your stomach.  Prenatal massage can help to lower your anxiety, improve your sleep, and aid with back and leg pains associated with pregnancy.  Postnatal massage can help to decrease stress and restore normal muscle tone and mobility.

Graston Technique® (GT):

GT uses specially designed stainless steel instruments with unique treatment edges and angles to help with soft tissue mobilization and helps the clinician address soft tissue lesions and fascial restrictions. The use of GT instruments can help break down scar tissue, leading to the restoration of pain-free movement and function. 

Cupping massage:

We offer cupping and cupping massage during massage therapy sessions.  Cupping can help draw out toxins, decrease muscle tension and release triggers points, help to break up adhesions from scarring or injuries, and help to restore tissue mobility.
