Physiotherapy at Ascent
Our approach is different
Our advanced physiotherapy is based on active rehabilitation and education and supplemented with hands-on therapy. Through the /Ascent /Approach that includes comprehensive treatment options and unhurried one-on-one appointments, most patients can expect to be feeling better in five to seven visits. We believe that staying active is key to maintaining health and our physiotherapists are here to support your activity and lifestyle goals.
Sessions with our physiotherapy center are longer than most Calgary physiotherapy sessions so you can get more out of each appointment and have confidence that you will receive the best care possible.
Our team of experienced physiotherapists care about each patient and their goals. Our approach is backed by science and gets meaningful and lasting results. Through full body assessments and achievable plans, our goal is to offer the best available manual therapy and exercise rehabilitation programming in a positive environment.

Physiotherapy sessions at Ascent are comprehensive and often include multiple treatment options, such as:
IMS Acupuncture and Dry Needling
A small and thin acupuncture needle is used to relax tight muscles and stimulate the healing of over-sensitive nerves. It also helps stimulate the body to release the body’s own painkillers.
Shockwave, or extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ECSWT), is a non-surgical, non-invasive tool that accelerates healing and regenerates damaged tissue. It is often most effective in cases where the body has not been able to heal itself on its own.
Our Calgary Physiotherapists are experts in using movement and exercises as medicine. Exercise prescriptions will help you rebuild and maintain your joint and soft tissue health for the long term.
Pelvic Health Physiotherapy focuses on assessing and improving the function of the pelvic floor muscles from both an internal and external approach.
