MSK Clinics offers a wide variety of services at our Kitsilano clinic in Vancouver. Our practitioners would be happy to determine which kind of services can best suit you. Here is a brief overview of our offerings:
Massage therapy involves the use of several different techniques to soothe the soft tissues and muscles of one’s body. The Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) that work at our Kitsilano physiotherapy clinic are trained professionals who can help reduce your muscle tension and help aid you in relaxation using professional techniques.
Physiotherapy is at the heart of what we do at MSK Kitsilano Clinics. Physiotherapy occurs when a trained practitioner applies hands-on techniques to aid in the relief of a number of ailments, most commonly soreness or pain after an injury. MSK Health employs registered physiotherapists with master’s degrees who can work with you to come up with a treatment plan that suits your lifestyle.
Chiropractors are health professionals that treat problems caused by abnormalities in the extremities, including the spine. MSK Clinics employ professionals who have completed a Doctor of Chiropractic program and who will work alongside other professionals employed at our clinic to come up with a care plan that best suits you.
Shockwave therapy uses high intensity pulses of sound to aid damaged tissue in healing. It does not deliver an electric shock of any kind. Instead, it reduces inflammation by stimulating cell movement, which in turn results in a lessening of pain for the patient. It is often used as an antidote to the kind of repetitive strain injuries that are commonly seen in athletes.
Orthotics are a type of medical appliance that is used to correct foot or leg problems. Once a prescription for orthotics has been assigned by a doctor, a professional must be tasked with creating the orthotics for an individual by taking a precise scan of their foot and creating a unique mould. MSK Clinics provides this service.
Kinesiology deals with the management of injuries and preventative health through the power of movement. A kinesiologist works with a clinic to help them obtain their physical activity goals. Active rehab is a program intended for victims of motor vehicle accidents that can help them regain pain-free movement.
Intramuscular stimulation is a specialized technique that uses needles to stimulate the healing of sore muscles and tissue. Intramuscular stimulation works by breaking up the tension that naturally occurs in muscles due to stress or injury.
MSK Clinics has three locations to best serve the Greater Vancouver Area. Our Kitsilano clinic is conveniently located on W 4th Avenue, comfortably situated in the beautiful neighbourhood’s heart.
The team at MSK Clinics is made up of highly-trained professionals. Our team members are practitioners, trainers, teachers, and researchers, each with the appropriate education in their field. It is this expertise that allows them to treat a number of patients from professional athletes to individuals suffering from complicated ailments.
At MSK Clinics, our patient’s success is our success. We are completely committed to providing care in a supportive and non-judgemental facility where our patient’s situations are looked at on an individual level. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach when it comes to physical care. Instead, we believe that all patients deserve to be treated as uniquely as they are.
We understand that your health is not to be entrusted with just anyone. We take pride in the fact that our clients trust us to offer them support and treatment, and we believe that our experience speaks for itself. We love serving our local community, and are gracious for the support that we have been shown over our years of operation.
Physiotherapy is a scientifically-proven method that can help alleviate and prevent injuries. Physiotherapists work with doctors and other health professionals to take a complete look at a patient’s health and determine which kind of treatments are best for them. Physiotherapy can help you lead a pain-free life.
Living pain-free is important, and at MSK Clinics we believe it should be accessible at all. MSK Clinics offers direct billing options that are compatible with the majority of Canadian insurance providers at our Burnaby physiotherapy clinic.
