Your appointment will always consist of a hands-on portion where they provide immediate relief to the area of pain, either by massaging it, stretching, acupuncture, or maybe even cupping. Some physiotherapists might use ultrasound or IFC to help reduce your inflammation.

Staff are so welcoming and friendly. An easygoing environment that is clean and well maintained. Received FST with Rex and was not disappointed. He always makes sure that I am comfortable and is super attentive during every appointment I've been to. I'm feeling stronger, flexible and now able to do more and get more out of my workouts.

I found Axis by searching top rated clinic of this kind and I am so glad that I tried it. With so many good reviews, I am sure that they are all wonderful professionals, and I started with Dr. Edward and wow, he was amazing! I didn't feel the need to ask a lot of questions as I could feel that I was in good hands. Dr. Edward is an awesome chiropractor, he knows what he does, truly professional. Front desk staff is very friendly and pleasant. And of course, the clinic is very clean. Great experience!

Treating Elbow Pain with our Physiotherapist

Have you ever felt pain on the outside of your elbow? Lateral epicondylitis, or what’s more commonly known as “tennis elbow”, can really suck. Sometimes you can feel pain on the inside of the elbow, this would be referred to as golfers’ elbow.

The pain is caused by repetitive movements of the elbow joint which can cause irritation at the tendon. There are many factors that can lead to this, but one of them is faulty positioning of the elbow joint. 

Phaly is our expert physiotherapist trained in treating all sorts of musculoskeletal conditions!
