Sleep apnea

Sleep apnea is a common disorder characterised by pauses in breathing or shallow breaths during sleep. Snoring and sleep apnea can irritate the throat and vocal cords. Sleep apnea is a common source of daytime fatigue that can lead to high blood pressure, obesity, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, depression, difficulty concentrating and memory loss. AXiO Heath Group’s experienced respiratory therapists specialize in the identification and treatment of sleep apnea.


Postural therapy

Poor posture can contribute to poor performance on the stage as well as to pain and dysfunction. AXiO’s physiotherapists identify postural changes that lead to performance limitations. Our physiotherapists work in conjunction with our osteopaths, athletic therapists and massage therapists to empower their patients through education and personally tailored progressive postural exercise regimes.


Speech language pathology

Dizziness is often the result of vestibular dysfunction caused by an inner ear problem and signals transmitted to the brain, side effects of medication or a sign of neck dysfunction. This treatment is intended for patients suffering from dizziness, loss of balance, dizziness, Meniere's syndrome, benign positional paroxysmal vertigo (BPPV), neck-related dizziness and migraines.

Our physiotherapists will assess your balance, the flexibility and strength of your legs, the way you walk, your general mobility and visual stability, neck mobility, the strength of your neck and arms. In addition you will be tested for your sense of positioning.

Our physiotherapists, in collaboration with our otorhinolaryngology specialists, offer vestibular rehabilitation services based on exercises that stimulate the body's innate ability to compensate for balance problems. With a well-targeted and personalized program, our patients can improve their balance and ability to function in daily activities, reducing their risk of falling and thus improving their quality of life.
