Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy can be defined as a treatment method that focuses on the science of movement and helps people to restore, maintain and maximize their physical strength, function, motion and overall well-being by addressing the underlying physical issues.

Physiotherapy has been proven to be effective in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of acute and chronic conditions, the prevention of injury and disability, and in promoting health and wellbeing.

 

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health.

Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved; and physical dysfunction and pain and the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented trough the use of Massage Therapy. 

Spinal Manipulative Therapy

Spinal Manipulative Therapy (SMT) was defined as any hands-on therapy directed towards the spine, which includes both manipulation and mobilization, and includes studies from physiotherapist, chiropractors, manual therapists.

Spinal Manipulation is designed to relieve pressure on joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function. It’s often used to treat back, neck, shoulder, and headache pain.

Dry Needling / Acupuncture

Dry needling involves inserting a tiny monofilament needle in a muscle(s) in order to release shortened bands of muscles and decrease trigger point activity. This can help resolve pain and muscle tension, and will promote healing. This is not traditional Chinese acupuncture, but is instead a medical treatment that relies on a medical diagnosis to be effective. Dry needling is a valuable and effective treatment for musculoskeletal pain. Like any treatment, there are possible complications. While complications are rare in occurrence, they are real and must be considered prior to giving consent for treatment.

Custom Bracing

Bracing serves two pain purposes, to provide stability and reduce joint swelling through compression. Braces are intended to shift weight away from the damaged area of your joint, thus helping to reduce pain and discomfort.  Some braces provide compression, which can help to reduce swelling that occurs after activity for those with arthritis.
