In order to optimize a patient’s physical function, Andrew’s physiotherapy practice involves an advanced biomechanical analysis, often using the Redcord Neurac system to identify weaknesses and imbalances in the body. He uses a blend of education, Redcord exercises, home exercises, therapeutic and athletic taping, modalities, acupuncture, and manual therapy techniques, including joint mobilization, myofascial release, and neural tissue mobilization. Andrew develops a customized treatment plan for each patient to aid in their recovery and help them achieve their personal goals.
