Dry Needling in Halifax & More

Citadel Physiotherapy offers a wide range of services to meet your rehabilitation goals. Our therapists are all registered by their professional associations and are committed to providing the highest quality of care to their clients.

Manual Therapy/Manipulation

All physiotherapists use specifically tailored exercise to treat pain and stiffness. In addition to exercise, Manipulative physiotherapists are highly trained at using their hands to diagnose and treat restrictions in movement in the spine, arms and legs. Using gentle, hands-on techniques, we can help reduce muscle tightness, improve movement in the joints, reduce pain and improve function.

CAMPT-Certified ™ physiotherapists are Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT) that have completed post-graduate education and attained internationally-recognized qualifications in hands-on therapy. We provide focused treatment based on research-guided techniques that speed up patient recovery while educating them about their condition to reduce the risk of relapse.

Vestibular Rehabilitation

We offer evidence-based assessment and treatment services for vestibular disorders. An initial visit will include a comprehensive history and physical examination to determine an accurate diagnosis. The assessment involves a number of visual, manual, and functional tests to determine the type of dizziness being experienced. We create a treatment plan based on the results of our findings. Treatment is highly individualized and may include repositioning maneuvers, clinic based vestibular/balance therapy, a patient-specific home exercise program, education or a combination of these strategies. Please book in to see David Evans, PT at either our Halifax or Dartmouth location for this service.

Pool Therapy

Water Therapy consists of a variety of treatments and exercises that are done in a pool to help people dealing with musculoskeletal injuries, chronic pain, and pre/post-surgical procedures.

Pool water therapy is an excellent method of treatment for people who have undergone surgery and need to begin a specialized exercise program that follows their surgeon’s specific protocol.

Water counteracts gravity and helps to support a person’s body weight in a controlled fashion as the person is immersed. This can aid the development of improved balance and strength. So, for people unable to weight bear on land, they can in water.

Benefits of Pool Therapy:

  • Strengthen and condition muscles
  • Improve flexibility/mobility
  • Reduce pain
  • Reduce risk of future injuries
  • Treatment of osteoarthritis
  • Increase joint movement
  • Relaxation of tight muscles
  • Decreases stress on muscles and joints
  • Begin rehab exercises sooner than on land

The buoyancy of water allows individuals with a limited range of motion to gain extra range and the ability to move freely underwater versus on land. The water also provides resistance by means of gentle friction, allowing strengthening and conditioning of an injury while reducing the risk of further injury due to the loss of balance.

After any type of surgery, maintaining mobility is a top priority. Stiffness and loss of flexibility are a big concern for post-surgical patients. With pool therapy, people are able to begin rehab exercises much sooner than on land.
