Our custom-made knee bracing products are measured to fit you perfectly and can be used for ligamentous injuries of the knees and/or osteoarthritis of the knee.
Correcting misalignment of your lower body with non-invasive methods, such as as orthotics and bracing, can restore proper function and alleviate a wide variety of symptoms.
Gait analysis is used to assess, plan, and treat individuals with conditions affecting their ability to walk. We utilize state-of-the-art computerized gait scan technology which allows us to look at the foot when it hits the ground in a dynamic weight bearing manner. Orthotics are custom made using advanced condition specific materials and are manufactured in Ontario.

Physiotherapy is essential to rehabilitation. It remediates impairments and promotes mobility and function.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
Protein rich plasma therapy is an innovative procedure that can stimulate and intensify the body’s natural healing process by supplying a higher concentration of platelet cells to the injury site. Protein rich plasma is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets and contains several different growth factors that promote the healing of bone and soft tissue. It is produced by centrifuging the patients’ own blood to create a concentration of platelet cells and growth factors. The resulting substance is then injected into and around the point of injury to stimulate the body’s natural healing signal. Use of the patient’s blood greatly reduces of an allergic reaction and removes the risk of a transmissible infection.
PRP therapy helps to:
- Relieve pain
- Accelerate healing & recovery
- May prevent future need of surgery

Laser Therapy delivers deep, penetrating, photonic light into affected tissues of the body. This therapy works by energizing damaged cells, increasing circulation to affected areas.
Laser therapy has many benefits including:
- Fast reduction of pain
- Fast reduction of inflammation
- Accelerated healing
- Improved nerve function
- Increased blood flow
- Increased cell metabolism
- Accelerated soft tissue and bone repair
- Increased collagen production
- Decreased muscle spasms

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive alternative to surgery for those suffering from joint and tendon disorders. Extra-corporeal means 'outside the body', referring to the shockwaves being generated outside the body. This therapy sends acoustic shockwaves in the bone and soft tissue, effectively re-injuring the area on a cellular level and breaking up scarring that has effected the tendons and ligaments. This allows the body to regenerate blood vessels and bone cells resulting in faster healing and a return to pre-injury activity levels.
Shockwave therapy eliminates the potential for various post-operation complications including:
- Nerve Damage
- Permanent Scarring
- Extended Recovery Period

Viscosupplementation is a nonsurgical treatment for osteoarthritis (OA). In this procedure hyaluronic acid, a gel-like fluid, is injected into the joint. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the synovial fluid surrounding joints. It acts as a lubricant to enable bones to move more smoothly over each other and acts as a shock absorber for joint loads. People with osteoarthritis have a lower concentration of hyaluronic acid in their joints. Viscosupplementation assists in restoring a higher concentration, resulting in improved movement and reduction in pain.
DUROLANE is a stablized non-animal hyaluronic acid. DUROLANE injections can assist in multiple cases of osteoarthritis, including with ankles, fingers, hips, knees, and toes. It mimics the effect of natural hyaluronic acid and restores the concentration in joint fluid. DUROLANE effectively relieves pain and restores function for up to six months.
