Whiplash is the term to describe neck pain and injury after an accident. It’s actually the spraining of your neck’s soft tissues (ligaments, tendons, muscles, discs, and small joints) and can occur in car accidents, sporting activities and accidental falls. Symptoms can include neck pain, stiffness and headaches and sometimes radiating pain to the shoulder blade and arm.
Back pain is a challenging experience for those living with it. Due to the nature of the symptoms, many Canadians seek relief through a myriad of remedies- Massage therapy and athletic therapy being one of them.
Active rehab for back pain is a varied practice that requires the appropriate training, education, and experience in order to be effective. At Sync Therapy, we take a patient-centric approach and create an individualized treatment program designed for you.
The tendons and muscles in your rotator cuffs are very susceptible to tearing. When the shoulder blade pulls and pinches the muscles and tendons of your rotator cuff, this is known as shoulder impingement.
The impact of a car accident can cause one or more of the back’s small discs to shift out of alignment. Herniated discs can create ruptures to the area resulting in pain, nerve injuries that travel all the way down to the thighs, and severe weakness.
While some people may start getting headaches immediately after the accident, others may not get them until after a few days or even weeks. When you get timely treatment for your headaches or other symptoms, it becomes easier for the doctor to find the root cause of the problem, and he/she is able to provide appropriate treatment.
Our Athletic therapist are registered treatment providers with ICBC. After a motor vehicle accident, our therapist works with you to design an individualized exercise program to get you moving safely and with the goal of reducing pain and restoring functional movement.
With each one-on-one session at Sync Therapy our therapist uses an active-based approach of treatment to prescribe and teach therapeutic exercise. Our therapists will give you guidance, support, motivation and accountability to help you return to the activities you love and empower you with the knowledge to safely continue exercise on your own.

I came to Sync Therapy 3 months after having shoulder surgery from a chronic sports injury. Daryl was instrumental in helping me gain back my mobility and add strength, to help me return to professional sport. Not only does he treat the area where the source of the injury is, but he is meticulous in assessing other areas of deficiencies that may be aiding in pain. He has listened to all my concerns with care and answered all of my questions with an undeniable knowledge base making me feel at ease with my progress and motivated to continue through challenging therapy. Since I have moved to Toronto, Daryl has been in constant contact just to see how I am progressing, and he has provided a tremendous amount of support through the physical and mental battles of re-injury. I would recommend Sync Therapy to anyone who has a sports injury, or those seeking treatment for everyday aches and pains as Daryl goes above and beyond to make sure his clients are healthy both mind and body
Getting hurt is a part of having an active lifestyle – accidents happen. But until I started to see Daryl at Sync Therapy I thought living with these injuries was a part of that lifestyle. Daryl has help me through chronic ankle and knee pain and designed a recovery plan and more importantly an injury prevention plan that fits my lifestyle. I have found his advice, knowledge, and attention to detail second to none. Thanks Daryl and Sync Therapy for all your help!
Daryl is such a wealth of information.. he goes above and beyond every time I see him, and is so easy to talk to and non-judgemental!
