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.

Manual osteopathy is a patient-centred approach to care that focuses on the whole person. Its aim is to restore structural balance to the body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems, improving its natural ability to self-regulate and self-heal. It is often used to treat neuro-musculo-skeletal disorders such as back pain, neck pain, sciatica, sports injuries, tennis elbow, postural strain and arthritis, through gentle manipulation and massage of the bones, joints, and muscles. It can also be used to treat conditions as diverse as irregular sleep cycles, digestive issues, concussions, TMJ and complex or compounded issues. [Learn More]
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.

Acupuncture is a treatment used to reduce pain, promote healing and improve function. It involves the insertion of extremely fine needles into the body at specific "acupuncture points". The approach we use at ProActive, called anatomical acupuncture, combines the traditional knowledge of acupuncture points along with modern knowledge of anatomy and how this relates to injury.
