Below is a list of specific services offered by Revolution to help you get back to feeling great. If you have questions about our services please contact us.
Chiropractic takes a hands-on, proactive approach to health. Our chiropractor’s goals are to diagnose your spinal condition, develop an individualized treatment plan and provide education around injury prevention. This three-step approach helps you to get back to the things you enjoy sooner; because hitting the slopes for the last day of the ski season, or taking an evening stroll with your family is so much more enjoyable than being confined to a bed with back and neck pain. Are there activities that you used to enjoy that you are now unable to participate in due to pain or mobility issues? The cause could be an underlying spinal condition. To learn more about Chiropractic treatment and to determine if its right for you, call or stop by our office.
Our physiotherapist use evidence based research to provide diagnosis. We assess range of motion, strength and joint restrictions to better treat your condition. Through soft tissue release and exercise prescription we get you back on the path to recovery. Physiotherapist’s are often used after an injury, but can also be utilized for injury prevention, concussion management and pre / post-operative treatment. We have physiotherapists who specialize in functional dry needling, vestibular assessment, pelvic floor treatment and concussion management. We work together with our patient to meet your healthcare goals and get you back to the activities you love, quickly.

Registered Massage therapy
If you are experiencing aches and pain, massage therapy can help. Our registered massage therapist use a variety of techniques to lengthen out tight muscles, regain joint mobility and improve your overall movement. They work closely with our chiropractors and physiotherapist to improve our patients function. Massage therapy can be used for recovery after an injury, tension from work, and to keep you comfortable during pregnancy and post-partum care after. They also help maintain tissue length and release shorten muscles to prevent recurrence of injuries.
Improper functioning of the pelvic floor can lead to symptoms such as incontinence, increased urgency and/or frequency, pelvic pain and pelvic organ prolapse. The Goal of pelvic floor physiotherapy is to improve the function of this group of muscles through education, exercises, lifestyle modifications, and hands on treatment. During the assessment, a detailed history along with an external examination assessing posture, strength, and flexibility around the low back, hips and pelvis will be conducted. An external and internal examination of the pelvic floor muscles will be completed depending on client comfort level. This examination Is done vaginally and/or rectally with women and rectally with men. Although an internal exam provides useful information regarding strength and function of the pelvic floor muscles, it is not necessary if you are uncomfortable with the procedure.
Active release technique
Active Release Technique (ART) has become an increasingly popular soft tissue technique for injury care. This technique is extremely useful for not only athletic injuries, but every day sprains/strains as well. Active Release Technique is a specialized form of soft tissue therapy that was developed and patented by Dr. Mike Leahy, DC, CCSP. Dr. Leahy developed these techniques as a result of realizing that the majority of his patients’ symptoms were related to changes in their soft tissue that could be felt by hand. By learning to feel the texture, tension and functional movements of muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves, ART practitioners are able to resolve many soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue injuries that respond well to ART include headaches, shoulder pain, knee problems, tennis and golfers elbow, nerve entrapments that may cause weakness, numbness or tingling and many other soft tissue injuries. Abnormal tissues are treated by applying very specifically placed tension to the damaged tissue while taking the tissue through movements designed to release tension, scar tissue, adhesions and nerve entrapments.
The Graston Technique is an instrument-assisted soft tissue treatment that enables clinicians to effectively break down pain-causing scar tissue and other fascia restrictions. The technique is performed with patented stainless steel instruments designed to detect and treat areas affected by soft tissue fibrosis. The Graston Technique works by isolating and removing the internal binding that is caused by tightening scar tissue, and helps release adhesions that pull on nerves. GT also works well on the different layers of muscle and fascia to restore normal mobility and pain free movement to injured areas of the body. This patented technique is a proven therapy with often very quick results. We use Graston Technique to non-invasively and safely remove scar tissues and scar tissue adhesions that have occurred as a result of chronic inflammation, acute tear and crush injuries, repetitive motion or from old injuries of the past.
functional dry needling
Functional dry needling involves inserting small needles into tight musculature to help lengthen out tissues. It helps to reset tighten musculature and free joint mobility. Dry needling can be effective for a variety of soft tissue related injuries as well as muscle retraining. Dry needling can be coupled with electric stimulation to reset the firing of muscle fibers to achieve facilitation to the muscle. Dry needling is different than acupuncture as it relies on a specific muscles and release compared to traditional meridians. If you are wondering if dry needling is right for you, give us a call.
Orthotics are custom-made shoe inserts that realign your foot’s biomechanics, improving posture and relieving pain and stress in the feet, knees, hips and back. As a result, overuse injuries are minimized or prevented, and all physical activities are more enjoyable and less damaging. Orthotics are proven to reduce tiredness and fatigue and enhance the integrity of your step by exerting steady pressure on your foot during each step. The Footmaxx® Technology we use for Custom Orthotics is an advanced digital system that determines the qualities of your step. Unlike the traditional models that use casts of your foot in one position, the Footmaxx® system accurately assesses your step at over 150 scans per second, creating an accurate 3D model. This information is used to fabricate an individually crafted prescription orthotic. Light, flexible and discreet, Footmaxx® Orthotics offer the support you need while remaining versatile enough to be worn with your favourite footwear.
Concussion Management involves treating all aspects of a concussion including reaction time, memory, balance, cognitive processing, and visual input. One of our main goals is symptom management, so that we can increase your functional activity. Education around a concussion and symptom management is a key component to treatment, and a safe return to sport or just day to day activities.
Another rapidly spreading health innovation for the treatment of common tissue injuries is Shockwave Therapy. At Revolution we can perform this type of treatment on patients with chronic pain and other health conditions. Shockwaves are a natural phenomenon occurring in nature when lightning strikes or a plane exceeds the speed of sound. In medicine it has been used to break up kidney stones without the need for surgery since the 1980s. Scientists then found that shockwaves were able to cause bone, tendon, ligament and other cells to regenerate and finish healing in even the oldest of chronic injuries. Until then, injuries like plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, jumpers knee, hip bursitis, shin splints, stress fractures, calcific tendonitis deposits and others were often difficult to impossible to heal. Shockwave Therapy has emerged as one of the only treatments that reliably makes tendon to bone or ligament to bone junction injuries heal. The high-energy acoustic waves non-surgically penetrate the soft tissues, targeting damaged areas, stimulating new blood vessel growth and regeneration in bones, tendon and ligaments.
