Healing Naturally

Family run, Back to Basics is a clinic providing rehabilitation services for injured people of all ages. Through natural methods such as massage therapy and dry needling/acupuncture, we are able to only relieve your pain but also heal your injury naturally.

We treat:

  • Sport and musculoskeletal injuries
  • Motor vehicle accident injuries
  • Work-related injuries
  • Preventative Medicine

Back to Basics Physiotherapy relies on time-tested methods to actually heal, rather than just relive pain, so that you can’t go on causing further damage to yourself. Our focus is on the prevention of injuries by educating you on how your body works and the right way to move.


We prioritize hands-on physio care, offering a variety of treatment options that best fit our clients needs.
