Long term solutions
Our passion lies in working with our clients to manage and rehabilitate injuries.

Hamilton Physio & Rehab provides hands-on approach to benefit patients as per their needs.

Also referred as acupuncture needles, dry needling involves the insertion of small acupuncture needles into specific trigger points to relieve muscle pain.

Our Physiotherapists are trained in the application of dry needling and are able to use it effectively on patients on whom its beneficial to use.

Postural related pain and injuries have become more commonplace with the advent of computers and technology. Neck and shoulder pain, headaches, and low back pain can all be attributed to poor sustained postural positions in the presence of incorrect ergonomic setup. These issues are seen in both the workplace and also with students. Hamilton Physio & Rehab offer ergonomic assessments and advice to assist in issues arising from postural pain.
