We do more than provide treatment to a body already experiencing pain. We will also educate you about the mechanics of your body and provide professional advice on ways to prevent injury. We’ll analyze your body movements and posture and help you find ways to move more efficiently. Check out our KneeSTRONG program — an exercise program designed to help prevent ACL Injuries. Also check out our new Concussion Risk Reduction Program — 6 Exercises for Athletes Playing High Risk Sports.
When physiotherapists use their hands to mobilize the joints of the spine and extremities, it is called Manual Therapy. This physical manipulation is meant to decrease pain and increase flexibility by relaxing tense muscles and freeing restricted joints. One type of manual therapy is soft tissue mobilization, in which pressure is applied to the soft tissues of the body to break up scar tissue, increase circulation, and reduce muscle pain. Another type is mobilization/manipulation, which uses specific movements to help adjust and reposition joints.
Intramuscular stimulation, or IMS, helps reduce muscle-related pain and tightness through the use of dry needling. IMS aims to address muscle shortening and reduce pressure on nerves. Needling can take place on the muscle itself, or at nerve sites that control muscle function.
A Kinesiologist is a specialist in human movement. Our staff of Kinesiologists uses the principles of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and psychomotor behaviour to address physical issues related to injury management and recovery. The Kinesiology profession is provincially regulated, and practitioners are required to have completed at least a four-year university degree in Kinesiology.
Massage therapy is another form of muscular stimulation, using the manipulation of various muscle and connective tissue layers to boost muscle performance and accelerate the healing process. Our licensed massage therapists use acupressure, fascial release, muscle energy techniques and trigger point therapy to treat a range of injury and pain issues.
Low level laser therapy or ‘cold laser therapy’ uses light to penetrate through the skin into tissues to help stimulate tissue healing. Laser has been shown to aid in pain relief, reduce inflammation, and reduce scarring. Tendonitis, arthritis, tennis elbow, jaw pain, and neck pain are just a few of the many conditions physiotherapists use laser therapy to treat.
Traction / Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal traction is used to decompress and stretch vertebral joints and soft tissues around the spine. This can help increase the space between the vertebrae where the spinal nerves exit and can help decrease irritation from disc injuries, nerve pain, sciatica, and degenerative changes in the spine.
Shockwave therapy is the most advanced non-surgical technology currently available for treating many injuries. Shockwave is applied through a hand piece that produces strong energy pulses for short periods of time. This energy helps stimulate the healing process by increasing the blood flow to affected areas, which accelerates healing and often results in quicker relief from pain. This is an effective therapy for sports injuries or problems that occur to all of us in our everyday lives. Common conditions that can be successfully treated with shockwave include: Frozen shoulder, Shoulder tendonitis and calcifications, Plantar Fasciitis and heel spurs, Achilles Tendon Pain, Epicondylitis (Tennis or Golfer’s elbow), Patellar Tendonitis (jumper’s knee), Neck and Back strains, Shin splints, Muscle trigger points and more.
Acupuncture is a technique that involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points in the body to help reduce pain and stimulate healing. Acupuncture follows Traditional Chinese Medicine principles of healing by balancing energy within the body. Acupuncture is commonly used to treat neck and back pain, headaches, muscle strains and joint pain.
