Blue Sky’s Physical Therapists assess and treat orthopaedic, neurological and cardio-respiratory, pediatrics problems. The treatments can include hands-on work that includes mobilization of the nerves, soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, and mobilization of spinal segments and joints.

At Blue Sky Physiotherapy a registered physiotherapist will assess your muscular strength, stability, and endurance to determine imbalances in your body.
From there, specific exercises will be chosen by your physiotherapist to target key muscle groups. Specific muscle retraining can increase stability and protect joints, which will reduce pain and improve overall function.
Research has shown that core training has had considerable success in treating and preventing injuries to the lower back and hips.
Pre-natal and Post-Natal
Many changes occur in a woman’s body as she goes through pregnancy, labour, and delivery. Some issues can arise slowly over several months, and some acutely from trauma during labour and delivery.
It should not be considered “normal” to have low back pain during pregnancy or after delivery. At Blue Sky, Physiotherapists can aid in the reduction and prevention of your current pain through movement re-education and specific stabilization exercises.
Our Physiotherapists can design a safe exercise program to prevent the development of chronic issues, and remain active through this chapter of life.
At Blue Sky Rehab Center, a registered Kinesiologist or Personal Trainer can work with you one-on-one guiding you through a personalized fitness program to enhance your return to sport, improve your athletic performance, or to simply stay healthy and reduce the risk of injury. The program will be tailored to optimize your body’s performance in the specific activities you participate in. Your Practitioners will come alongside you and work with you to achieve more than you thought you were capable of.
