Manual therapy is a form of “hands-on” treatment that helps to modulate pain, decrease inflammation, and increase range of motion and mobility, all intended to help you maintain your physical function. Some of the manual therapy techniques that may be used in your treatment sessions are:
- Joint Mobilizations & Manipulations
- Nerve Mobilizations
- Muscle Energy Techniques
- Myofascial Release
Many injuries occur due to repetitive strain injuries or by overloading specific tissues. When this overload occurs, the muscles are not able to handle the demand that is placed on them and that is when injuries occur. Having a physiotherapist check your strength or assess muscle imbalances can help you on your way to recovery. By performing a home exercise program, you can help reduce the likelihood of re-injury and help maintain your physical strength and function. Research has shown that the more involved a patient is in their rehabilitation process, the better the outcome and end-result. That is why it is so important to adhere to an exercise program.
Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that involves inserting a tiny acupuncture needle along different pathways of the body (called meridians) in order to help promote blood flow and reduce pain and inflammation. Inflammation can be reduced by increasing blood flow to the affected area; therefore acupuncture is a good adjunct to treatment to help the body heal naturally.
Dry needling is a form of therapy that involves inserting a tiny needle into the affected area of the body. This generally elicits a quick response in the symptomology. The needles can be inserted into tight muscles, connective tissue or around nerves as they course throughout the body. Dry needling can help relax muscles, restore normal nerve function, and reduce pain in order to allow the body to heal naturally.
If you have ever felt dizzy or imbalanced, we can help! Part of your equilibrium comes from your inner ear apparatus and sometimes this system can become impaired. Vestibular rehabilitation involves treating conditions such as Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, Meniere’s disease, or unilateral vestibular loss. Based on the diagnosis, treatment may consist of re-positioning crystals within the inner ear, addressing balance and equilibrium issues, or performing eye stabilization/movement exercises to help restore normal vestibular-ocular function.
