Our Services

Acupuncture/ Dry Needling

Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that has been used for centuries to treat a variety of conditions. It involves the insertion of thin needles into the skin at specific points on the body.

Dry needling is a modern technique that uses thin needles to release muscle tension and trigger points. It is based on the same principles as acupuncture, but it does not involve the use of traditional Chinese medicine.

We offer custom bracing for various conditions, including ACL injuries, scoliosis, and degenerative disc disease. We will work with you to find the perfect brace for your needs.

Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular rehabilitation is a type of physiotherapy that is used to treat dizziness and balance disorders. It is based on the principle that the vestibular system, which controls balance, can be trained to function correctly.

As a lawyer, living downtown, it is difficult to carve out time for physical therapy. However, I have to emphatically recommend Dr. Germann at Push Pounds Sports Medicine. Attention to detail, friendly, and an excellent communicator are a few of the superb qualities you will experience. Highly recommend; your spine will thank you.

I had an injury in my disc that was life altering. I had pain 24/7 and I could no longer live my normal life. I couldn’t sit at work, no more sports, gym, exercise and I gained a lot of weight. I went to many physio sessions, chiro’s, RMT, cold bats, etc at other clinics, but I was still in pain. I decided that I needed a real plan to get control over my life. I asked around and I was referred to Studio Pushpounds. My friends indicated NBA players, EPL, NHL players fly and/or come here for treatment when they are in Toronto. If the best of the world trusts this clinic, then it would surely be good enough for me. My doctor was Dr. Darrin Germann. Dr. German is my hero. He spent time to properly diagnose my issue and create a gameplan that was altered after every session based on progression. Every time I entered his room, he was reviewing our notes, and like a mad genius planning out that day’s sessions. He knows each case personally, and I could tell he was invested in my health. And in turn, I put in my 100% efforts to what he wanted me to do not just in the clinic, but outside of it. I’m now back in the gym, swimming, and pain free. If you are dedicated to fixing your problems, I highly recommend you see Dr. Germann. Dr. Germanns character is class, and he is very professional. The man is a stud and a great inspiration and a role model you need when going through injuries. He does what he preaches, and it shows in his own physique and lifestyle in terms of diet and workouts. He is going to do big things in his field and if you are lucky enough to see him for your treatment, he is the miracle you have been looking for. Thank you, Doc., You already know how much my life quality has changed.

The Push Pounds Sports Medicine Team is incredible! We researched four different clinics before choosing Push Pounds and deciding on Josh Irwanto as the main physiotherapist for our teen’s ACL recovery. The attention and level of care from the start of our recovery program was remarkable. Josh and Peter (second physiotherapist team member) took the time to explain the recovery plan while demonstrating compassion and understanding along the complete process. Our child felt motivated, supported and driven to work hard. Our family has immense gratitude towards the Push Pounds team and their knowledge + professionalism towards their patients recovery goals. Our teen is back playing on the field healthier and stronger than ever. A million thanks to Josh and his entire team!

If you’re recovering from an injury of ANY kind, look no further, Push Pounds/Studio Athletica is the ONLY place to go. After a nasty proximal humerus fracture, I was at a loss when it came time to start rehab. After endless searching and coming across Studio Athletica online, I found Physiotherapist Josh and decided to start my healing journey. Josh (alongside every single one of the support staff) has been an integral part of my healing not only physically, but mentally as well. You don’t really know the effects of a bad injury has on your entire wellbeing until it happens to you. And at 35 and never having broken a bone, I thought I was in the clear. 😉 Josh’s dedication to my progress each week was what kept my spirits up. He knew when to push me and when not to and provided endless encouragement along the way. Physiotherapy included a combination of treatments on the table as well as mobility and strengthening in the gym. After months of this combo and being diligent about my at-home exercises, I’m confident in saying that I have my arm/shoulder back and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I must add.. during the time I was rehabilitating my shoulder, I had some foot injuries along the way. After an assessment from Josh during an appointment, he said that Chiropractor Dr. Germann was the person I should see. Everything that I said about Josh above can be echoed about Dr. G. Another gem of a human and incredibly knowledgeable about the craft of healing. Safe to say a have two working feet and back to walking many, many km’s a day. Long story short, if you want a dedicated team, top of the line treatment options, and a gym with all the equipment you could ever need, Push Pounds/ Studio Athletica is the place for you.

Late last year I developed achilles pain that was impacting my ability to play high-level sports so I was referred to Dr. Darrin Germann at Push Pounds/Studio Athletica. I saw Dr. Darrin weekly and the sessions were split between gym exercises (the facility is brand-new and has a fully equipped gym with turf) and treatments which allowed for a more holistic approach to my recovery. Dr. Darrin always had a game-plan ready for the day based on how I was feeling that week and adjusted as needed. He got me back on my feet playing on the national team for Ultimate frisbee within 4 months! The entire team is welcoming, friendly and well-organized. I can’t recommend it enough!

Physiotherapy can also help to improve the range of motion and flexibility, as well as to increase strength and endurance. In addition, physiotherapy can be used to speed up the healing process following sports injuries or surgery. As a result, physiotherapy can play an important role in restoring patients to their full level of function.

The duration of physiotherapy treatment depends on various individual factors. The type and severity of the injury, the age and overall health of the patient, and the response to treatment are all important considerations. In general, minor injuries usually resolve in 2-3 sessions, while more serious injuries may require 6-8 weeks of treatment.

Chronic pathologies often require 2 or more months of physiotherapy, as the goal is not simply to relieve symptoms but to improve long-term function.

Of course, every patient is different, and your physiotherapist will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs. With commitment and dedication, you can expect to see significant improvements in your condition over time.
