Our physiotherapists look forward to ensuring all clients achieve the best outcomes. Whether you have been seriously injured in an accident or have a nagging problem that is not resolving on its own, we look forward to serving you.
Manual therapy involves the use of our hands to move joints of the spine and extremities to create movement and achieve flexibility or normalize muscle tone. Our therapists use the right amount of mobilization to achieve the desired effect. This allows your body to restore normal motion which directly works to alleviate pain and inflammation.
An individualized assessment of your body reveals the proper exercise approach. Prescriptions of specific stretching, strengthening and stabilization exercises are a critical part of the rehabilitation process for most injuries. Expect your physiotherapist to give exercise as a way to reduce symptoms or achieve healthy tissues. Not only will you have handouts but you will also have your very own website showing your personal exercise program in video format.
Soft Tissue Techniques
Nearly all injuries include soft tissue pain to some degree. While there are exceptions you should expect your physiotherapist to provide techniques to manage your soft tissue pain. These are usually taught so you can follow up with your own pain relieving techniques at home.
This is a near-painless technique which targets specific points along meridian pathways defined by the ancient Chinese. This modality of treatment uses needles, lasers or TENS to stimulate areas which influence pain and healing. Acupuncture treatments may be combined with your physiotherapy treatment session at no additional cost.
In the early phase of rehabilitation we utilize combinations of ultrasound, interferential current and laser as ways of specifically targeting inflammation or scar tissue. Your physiotherapist will decide if these are appropriate for your injury.
