Ankle Pain

PUBLISHED ON

"While I still feel pain in my ankle when I overexert it, I walk much more freely and without fear of the sharp pain of before - all thanks to William."

About 40 years ago I had a compact injury to my left ankle and I was told that there was nothing to be done.

After three close together treatments with William I found myself walking confidently without expecting the unpredictable sharp pain in my ankle.
Now, a year after my first appointment, only minor adjustments are needed. Thank you William!

"After one appointment less pain in my shoulder than I have had in years"

Since I have had my appointment, I have had less pain in my arm and shoulder than I have had in years. It has actually made me realize how much pain I was constantly in. I have been taking 2 Aleve every night before bed for the past month. After one appointment I have not had to take this medication and have had a super, painfree, no wake-up in the middle of the night sleep. I am so thrilled !! Thank you for what you do.”

"I would be heading for a hip replacement…"

I value the staff and the environment at Intrinsi. Scott Lawrence has been a life saver for me. I am convinced that had I not found him I would be heading for a hip replacement, and I am back to all my regular activities! Totally Awesome!

"I was about to give up on my knee pain..."

I was about to give up on my knee pain, I had seen what seemed like everyone I possibly could. After one appointment with Ed (Paget) my knee pain was completely gone. His grasp and knowledge of the human body is incredible!

"Because of Intrinsi I am able to run and train for my first half marathon."

Because of you I am able to run and train for my first half marathon. I came in (to Intrinsi) last year with terrible knee pain and was unable to run. Since finding out it was my back that was the issue I have been in for numerous treatments and will be running in the Calgary half marathon on June 1st!

"Intrinsi cured my granddaughter from her painful and persistent ankle injury"


I am writing this with gratitude and to tell you how Ed Paget was able to treat my granddaughter’s foot injury, when no one else was able to help her. My granddaughter, Sydney, is 15 years old and is a National Level Trampoline and Tumbling athlete. She had suffered with a injured ankle for over a year.

"I was scared and skeptical prior to my first treatment"

A great holistic treatment. I was scared and skeptical prior to my first treatment, and left with a new appreciation for osteopathic treatment, as well as education and encouragement to improve my function and make positive lifestyle changes. My therapist seems extremely skilled, genuinely wants to help you feel better, and is always willing to answer questions. She was able to make sense of a number of longstanding problem areas, including ones others have missed, and offer practical and effective strategies to improve things. I leave each session feeling energized and motivated to improve all aspects of my health.

"I’ve been pain-free, with no back issues since I started coming to Intrinsi"

I get WAY more from a 45 mins session with my Osteopathic Therapist than 15 mins on the table with a chiropractor. I can tell my Osteopath anything that might be going on with me and he fixes it! He also takes the time to explain the CAUSE of the issue not just deal with the symptoms. I’ve been pain-free and with no back issues since I started coming here! Thanks!! Great value.

Knee Pain

PUBLISHED ON

"Anna King has shown me how to think of my body as strong and how to move normally; how every part of my body is connected..."

I had swelling, pain and limited movement in my one knee and I had ringing in my one ear. My initial visit consisted of a consultation with Anna King. Anna explained that my past health history may help explain my current problem areas and assist her with developing a treatment plan. She evaluated my posture, walking, range of motion in hips, knees, etc. She proceeded with gentle manipulations in my back and knee areas to help align and heal my body and restore normal function to my body.

Throughout the sessions, Anna explains what she is doing, what she feels in my body, improvements she is seeing, areas that still require work. She will talk about different foods that are good in healing.
Anna helped me see how my body was overcompensating for my knee which was causing problems in other areas of my body i.e. tension in my back and stiffer movements in my hips. Anna showed me how breathing helps my body heal.

She has shown me how to think of my body as strong and to move normally, how every part of my body is connected and to visualize the flow of energy through my body.

"Improvements to my digestion and overall health gathered pace with each treatment"

I have suffered from IBS and the uncomfortable symptoms that go with it for the past 15 years or so. The painful and rather more embarrassing elements of IBS had become a particular problem at work and during periods of increased workload or stress. Visceral Osteopathy with Lucy made an immediate and powerful difference to my day-to-day life.

Frozen Shoulder

PUBLISHED ON

"I was told that it typically takes 18 months to 2 years to recover from a frozen shoulder.  In only three months, I have almost complete range of motion and very little, if any, pain.  Needless to say I am very pleased!"

While doing rehab for a broken wrist I managed to develop a frozen shoulder.  I had no range of motion and it was very painful.  I was not seeing any improvement after many visits to a physio, who did an ultrasound and hooked me up to some other machine, then prescribed exercises that I was not able to do because of pain.

"Since being diagnosed with scoliosis… osteopathy is the most helpful service I’ve experienced."

I see Scott (Lawrence) when I’m in pain, and I leave the appointment feeling great! Since being diagnosed with scoliosis, and after trying chiropractic, physiotherapy, and acupuncture, osteopathy is the most helpful service I’ve experienced. Instead of visiting a physiotherapist or chiropractor 3x a week, I see my osteopath once every 1-3 months! The service is great, the energy and staff are amazing!

"Needless to say, after a working with Jen, my hip pain is gone..."

I initially went to Intrinsi to see Jen for a sore hip. The pain in my hip was affecting my work, my social life and my ability to stay active. After 2 minutes with Jen, I knew she understood me and what my body needed better then I knew myself. She explained to me how everything in the body is connected and that the pain in my hip was likely caused by some other imbalance in my body.

"With a quick adjustment, my symptoms went away and I haven’t felt pain since"

I was doing an exercise circuit program that involved a lot of bicep curls, tricep dips, bench press and pushups. During one of my workout sessions I felt a twinge in my right wrist and forearm. It didn’t hurt initially but a few days later my arm started to ache and I had sensations of numbness and pins and needles.

"Intrinsi helped me with my shoulder issues"

I like how Intrinsi helped me with my shoulder issues and also gave me advice and a plan to follow in between visits. The breathing techniques help me in a lot of ways – not just to relieve my shoulder issues. I also liked that my Osteopathic Therapist explained everything so thoroughly that I understand root cause, treatment goals, and self-management.

"I was a happier pregnant woman after visiting Intrinsi!"

During my second pregnancy, I had issues walking and felt as if my right leg was going to give out, especially while going down stairs (yes, it was scary). I had gone for massage and chiropractic visits but they only partially helped. Then I found Osteopathy and the team at Intrinsi.
