Chiropractors diagnose, treat, and help prevent conditions related to muscles, bones, joints, and nerves. Chiropractic is a drug-free, non-invasive, hands-on method of treating such conditions. At Movement Lab, we use a combination of exercise and manual therapy (adjustments and muscle release therapy) to restore function and return patients to their activities. Dr. Myla treats a variety of conditions including: back pain, neck pain, headaches, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, ankle sprain, and osteoarthritis.

REHABILITATION AND SPORT INJURY
At Movement Lab, we perform a movement/postural assessment on each patient, in order to provide individualized rehabilitation and exercise programs to meet your goals and needs. Our mission is not just to relieve pain but to restore function and enhance performance. Rehabilitation includes: postural re-education, mobility exercises, stability training, taping techniques, and more. This approach to injury management will enhance healing and help prevent further injury.
PREGNANCY & PAEDIATRIC ASSESSMENT
Chiropractors can provide safe, effective and drug-free conservative care to relieve pain and improve function during pregnancy and after birth. Studies have shown that manual therapy can help decrease pain in pregnancy and labour. At Movement Lab, we combine manual therapy with exercises to rehabilitate postural changes and help prepare you for childbirth and ensure a faster recovery. We can also provide paediatric assessments for your infants and children to ensure that their developmental milestones are being met.
CUSTOM MADE ORTHOTICS
Custom Made Orthotics are corrective devices designed to help normalize foot biomechanics. At Movement Lab, we combine gait analysis with 3D scanning technology to seamlessly mold the orthotic to not only your foot, but also to your footwear. There are several common symptoms that may indicate misalignment of the feet. You may be a candidate for orthotics if: one side of the sole of your shoe wears out faster than the other, you have chronic heel, knee or lower back pain, or your feet point inward or excessively outward when you walk.
Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive, fast and long-lasting pain relief treatment. Shockwave Therapy accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Its main assets are fast pain relief and mobility restoration. It is commonly used to treat shoulder injuries, chronic Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, elbow tendinopathies and chronic stages of myofascial pain syndromes. In many instances, Shockwave Therapy is most effective in cases where the human body has not been able to heal itself on its own.
WSIB & MVA CLAIMS
Chiropractors are specifically trained to assess and treat patients who have suffered injuries as a result of car accidents, work place accidents, and slip & falls. At Movement Lab, we combine manual therapy and rehab to restore your function and return you to work as soon as possible. We will even help you with the paperwork so you can focus on getting better.
Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct form of primary health care which combines traditional natural therapies, with modern evidence-based scientific knowledge. It focuses on strengthening the foundations of health, in order to prevent disease and work towards to making effective and sustainable changes that are beneficial for your health. Naturopathic Doctors aim to determine the root cause of illness rather than suppressing symptoms, so that patients can be provided with a long-term solution for their health concerns. As part of your initial intake, your Naturopathic Doctor will work with you to take a complete health history in order to understand all the mental, physical and environmental factors that may be affecting your health. This allows them to provide you with an individualized treatment plan that is unique to your specific health concerns and goals.

GROWCO POSTPARTUM REHAB
Dr. Myla is a GrowCo practitioner! At GrowCo, we believe moms deserve more than just a 6-week checkup when it comes to recovery after childbirth. GrowCo experts fill that gap by providing a comprehensive postpartum checkup and progressive healing through exercise targeting the core, pelvic floor and total body. The methodology is aimed at preventing, reducing, and/or resolving symptoms women have been made to think are an inevitable consequence of childbirth. It’s our job to support and empower women to treat their bodies with care, compassion and proper rehab.
Acupuncture is a technique that targets both the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system to reduce pain, stiffness and overall dysfunction. It involves the insertion of fine solid needles into acupuncture points. Using a painless needling technique, most patients do not even feel the needles being inserted and can relax for the duration of the treatment which can range from 10-30 minutes. The number of needles will vary each treatment depending on the muscles and nerves being targeted.
