We all experience wear and tear on our bodies from daily living activities, from exercising to gardening to shovelling. As we age, we can be even more prone to injury. Not only are injuries painful, but they can slow us down and prevent us from doing our daily tasks, sports or hobbies that we love doing. At Pinnacle Performance we will help get you out of pain and give you the tools you need to live the life that you love.
Gardening is enjoyed by so many people but can result in backaches, arm and wrist pain. Getting you back to activities you enjoy is a primary goal of ours at Pinnacle Performance. We can help you manage the strains and backache that result from gardening and provide you with some simple tips and stretches to do before you garden to prevent re-injury.

Everyone has their favourite way of sleeping and there is no hard and fast rule for what position is the best since we tend to make micro modifications to each one. Certain sleeping positions are safer than others if you suffer from conditions affecting the spine and/or shoulders. We can help relieve pain caused from improper posture during sleep including neck pains, pinched nerves, shoulder or back stiffness. As part of our mission to educate and improve daily living, we can also help you discover which sleeping position is best for you.
Snow is almost inevitable when you live in Canada. While it looks clean

get you back on track.
