Physiotherapy is a health care field that treats and prevents disorders in human movement caused by injury and disease. It helps the individuals who have problems affecting the musculo-skeletal system to find a functional level. Our physiotherapists use various techniques to treat you such as manual therapy, sport therapy and progress by exercises, the McKenzie approach, electrotherapy, an evaluation followed by a Cybex/Biodex isokinetic session, hydrotherapy (whirlpool bath), Muscle Activation Technique, etc. Our patients can expect to improve their balance, stamina, force and coordination, which will help them to remain active in their daily life.
A kinesiologist is a health professional specialised in physical activity. He or she uses movement as a preventive treatment and to improve performance. The kinesiologist is able to assess your physical condition and provide optimal training for your condition.

Its main goal is to help restore the human body's natural equilibrium and harmony. Osteopathy is a discipline based on the anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of the human body. The patient is treated with a global approach, so rather than simply treating the symptom the body is treated as a whole entity. Patients of all ages can benefit from osteopathy. The osteopath, with the use of different techniques, will treat the body on many different levels such as articular, visceral, cranial and fascial. This approach differentiates itself from others because it is aimed at discovering the cause of the problem rather than simply focusing on the symptoms. The key is to keep the different structures of the human body mobile. A loss in mobility causes functional as well as circulatory and/or nervous limitations. This loss in mobility can cause repercussions locally and possibly distally by forcing the body to compensate in other areas in order to maintain its equilibrium. The osteopath's job, therefore, is to make sure that the different elements of the body remain mobile in order to allow the body to function properly and remain healthy. In hopes of offering optimal care to our patients, osteopathy has become one of the essential services offered at Action Sport Physio.
Perineal re-education is one of the numerous fields of practice in physiotherapy. When faced with a dysfunction of the uro-genital system, it aims at improving pelvic floor strength, bladder control, diminishing chronic pain, etc. The muscles of the pelvic floor have various functions such as supporting the abdominal organs, controlling urinary and anal sphincters and enhancing sexual pleasure. The majority of these muscles are skeletal; this means that you have the capability of controlling them voluntarily and that they can be trained, just like the muscles of the arms and legs. It is also possible to regain control over your bladder by changing some habits and initiating a specific training program.
This therapy is based on a millennial tradition used for treating patients through centuries and on Yin and Yang, the concept of balance of vital energy. When the energy is in balance, the person is considered healthy. However, an imbalance of the flow of this vital energy is the cause of diseases and pain. Acupuncture stimulates and increases the body's self-healing abilities. It aims to improve health and relieve various types of pain. Science is beginning to show that acupuncture stimulates different regions of the nervous system, leading to the release of natural analgesic substances, such as endorphins and enkephalins. Furthermore, acupuncture helps regulate the flow of neurotransmitters in the brain, harmonizing the way the brain sends and receives information from diseased tissues or organs.
