Coquitlam Physiotherapy

We determine what caused your injury or pain and then collaborate with you to develop a customized treatment plan that returns you to the health you deserve!

Physiotherapists at Manhas Health & Co. aim to educate individuals as to how their body operates and to maximize their ability to function as a whole by primarily utilizing manual therapy and exercise-based approaches to rehabilitation. 

We don’t just treat the symptom – we determine what caused your injury or pain and then collaborate with you to develop a customized treatment plan that returns you to the health you deserve! 

Your first visit will involve a musculoskeletal assessment where we fully analyze your problem, taking into account your lifestyle, work demands and goals. 

We will then develop a customized treatment plan that will include one or more of our services. For example, we might use manual therapy to alleviate your current pain and then create a personalized exercise program to restore your strength and range of motion. 

Our services include: 

– Manual therapy – hands-on treatment to mobilize and/or manipulate joints and soft tissue 
– Custom-designed rehab exercise plans 
– Pain management education 
– Therapies, including TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), ultrasound, traction, heat and ice 
– Intramuscular stimulation (IMS) – inserting thin sterile acupuncture needles into the muscle to release the persistent tension 
– Taping – for sprained or chronically unstable joints or soft tissue 
– Vestibular rehabilitation for dizziness and balance disorders 
– Hand therapy, including custom braces and splints 
– Athlete screening for injury prevention and performance 
– Ergonomic assessment 
– Group fitness and strength & conditioning classes  

Vestibular therapy and concussion:

If you suffer from dizziness or vertigo, you may benefit from a kind of rehabilitation known as vestibular physical therapy. Vestibular physical therapy is a specialized treatment that can assist you in recovering from dizziness, unsteadiness, or vertigo. It can help you recover fast and resume normal functioning without dizzy episodes.

What is the Vestibular System:

The vestibular system is part of your inner ear. It includes the three canals called the vestibular canals and the balance (or equilibrium) nerves. These nerves can detect movements of the head, body, and eyes.

The vestibular system helps maintain your sense of balance. It also helps you find your direction in space.

The vestibular system transmits information about your head and body movements to your brain. It also receives information from the visual system and body senses, such as touch and position sense.

Your brain uses this information to keep your body stable in space. It helps you maintain balance and direction during movement.

What is Vestibular Physical Therapy?

Vestibular physical therapy is a specialized type of physical therapy that has been specifically developed to treat dizziness and vertigo.

A physical therapist can help you with dizziness, vertigo, or unsteadiness.

Vestibular physical therapists are very knowledgeable about how the inner ear and the brain work. They are also very good at treating dizziness, unsteadiness, and vertigo. With their help, you can understand what is causing your dizziness and learn ways to control it. Because vestibular physical therapy is so specific, it works quickly and gets great results.

What Medical Conditions Can Vestibular Physical Therapy Treat?

The following are some of the disorders that have been shown to benefit from vestibular rehabilitation and physical therapy:

  • Dizziness or spinning (vertigo)
  • Issues with eye-hand coordination
  • Pool equilibrium
  • Periods of drowsiness
  • Feelings of dizziness (syncope)

Patient Testimonials

"My doctor recently moved to this clinic and I’m so happy that she did! The receptionists are great, the nurse is so caring and sweet, and the design of the office is relaxing and clean. And of course, Dr. Mackie is amazing."

Elizabeth Goldstone

"Dr. Gates Manhas is my primary care physician and she's the best doctor I've ever had. She is a compassionate listener and she always does a fantastic job of walking me through her thought process of a diagnosis, and always offers great advice and clear explanation of treatment options/testing. Can't recommend her enough!"

Katie De Sousa

"We’ve been patients of Dr. Amritpaul Manhas for almost 2 years. He’s so caring, what a rare thing is to find a doctor that listens. His colleagues are the exact same way. The clinic is big, well equipped, and everything works well. Manhas Medical has been my best medical experience since moving to Canada in 2014. I really appreciate you all and I’m grateful to have found you, Dr. Paul."
