Manual Lymph Drainage
Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a gentle massage technique used to decongest and transport lymphatic fluid (lymph) from swollen areas of the body. Swelling often occurs in the arms and legs known as edema. This can occur in both healthy and impaired lymphatic systems where there is an increase or build up of fluid. Tension headaches, TMJ, sprains, fractures and surgery recovery are just a few examples of ailments that can be treated with MLD. This unique massage treatment is combined with deep breathing exercises to soften tissue, increase flow and direct fluid out of the swelling tissue and towards the lymph nodes. [Learn More]
Shockwave therapy is an innovative, non-invasive treatment that delivers short, intense energy waves to help heal muscle and tendon injuries. It stimulates the body’s natural healing process by increasing blood flow to the injured tissue. Shockwave therapy is an effective treatment for chronic conditions like plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, tennis elbow, jumper’s knee, stress fractures, scar tissue and non-healing ulcers.

Aquatherapy is a physical therapy treatment often prescribed by our physiotherapists as part of our individualised treatment plans. It is effective for treating many conditions including arthritis, fibromyalgia and joint replacement recovery. Aquatherapy takes place in the pool at the Canada Summit Centre. Your instructor will work with you one-on-one to teach you specific exercises that are complementary to your clinic-based treatment. [Learn More]
At ProActive Rehab, we treat concussions through a six-step progressive exertion program, which includes appropriate and effective rest strategies, symptom specific rehab exercises, aerobic testing and sport specific conditioning with a graduated return to exercise and play. We also offer baseline testing as point of reference for pre-injury cognitive and physical function so that, if you or your child sustains a concussion, the after-injury results can be compared to the baseline test.

Persistent Pain Management
1 in 4 Canadians suffer from persistent or chronic pain, which is defined as pain that lasts longer than 3 months. In many cases, persistent pain lasts long after an initial injury or trauma has healed and is caused by an overly sensitive nervous system that continues to send alarm messages to the brain. At ProActive, we take a holistic and science-based approach to treating chronic pain, leveraging multiple modalities including exercise/active rehab strategies, aquatherapy, massage, acupuncture, pain neuroscience education, relaxation and mindfulness, and sensory-motor cortical remapping.

Vestibular Therapy is the assessment and treatment of dizziness. An initial assessment is required to determine the origin of your dizziness as it can arise from a wide variety of reasons.
