Physiotherapy

Chiropractic

A PROGRESSIVE APPROACH TO PAIN

Many chiropractic clinics operate on a basis of continuous patient care. They want you to return consistently for a quick fix that keeps you coming back. This is great for their wallets, but not for your health…
At The Bridge, our team breaks the trend of traditional chiro treatments and instead embraces a progressive approach to pain and injury through evidence based practice.
Our longer, more detailed appointments not only address the painful symptoms of an injury, but the underlying causes as well.
Whether you’re a high-performance athlete, a weekend warrior, or not an athlete at all, our promise is to get you back to doing what you love as quickly as possible while also crafting a long-term solution unique to you.

Massage Therapy

Lay back, relax, you’re in good hands

Besides aiding in relaxation, massage therapy has major therapeutic benefits. It plays an important part in treating injury and contributing to general good health.
Massage before participating in sports enhances performance by improving circulation and flexibility. After the event, it improves the body’s natural ability to recover by decreasing the accumulation of metabolic waste in body tissues.
Looking to accelerate your recovery and enhance your performance? Including deep tissue massage as part of your training regime helps with rehab and injury prevention.
