Physical Therapy
Rehabilitation Manual Therapy

Manual Therapy

Manual therapy, or manipulative therapy, is a physical
 treatment for musculoskeletal pain and disability; it most commonly includes kneading and manipulation of muscles,
joint mobilization and joint manipulation. 

Therapeutic exercise is a bodily movement prescribed to

correct impairment, improve musculoskeletal function, or

maintain a state of well-being.  It may vary from highly

selected activities restricted to specific muscles or parts

of the body, to general and vigorous activities that can return

a convalescing patient to the peak of physical condition.

Acupuncture

Physiotherapy acupuncture techniques are derived from traditional Chinese medicine.  A physiotherapist will assess your specific musculoskeletal impairments, for example:

  • Decreased range of motion

  • Poor pattern of movement

  • Increased tone in muscles

IMS uses the same types of needles as acupuncture.  

The physiotherapist assesses the patient for range of motion

and functional movement patterns.  The physiotherapist then palpates the muscles on the area of impairment to locate

trigger points.  Trigger points are taught bands within a muscle

that cause movement dysfunction and pain.

Stimulation (IMS)

Vestibular physiotherapy is an exercised based program

designed to treat problems of the inner ear associated with

poor balance, vertigo and dizziness.

Vestibular disorders are invisible, hard to diagnose and

provoke dizziness, unsteadiness or trouble focusing with

even the simplest of activities:  rolling over in bed, scrolling

on a computer, looking back and forth between people in a conversation, going around a corner too fast, walking on soft ground, grocery shopping or being in a vehicle.

Concussion Managment and Treatment

Concussion

Management

A concussion is caused from a direct or indirect hit to the head or body, making the brain rock back and forth inside the skull.  The signs and symptoms of a concussion may be subtle and may not be immediate.  Concussions may or may not involve loss of consciousness.  Either a direct blow to the head, face, neck or elsewhere on the body with an impulsive force transmitted to the head typically results in the rapid onset of short-lived impairment of neurological functions that resolves spontaneously.

Graston Technique has recently started to grow in popularity since its introduction to the rehabilitation community the mid-1990s.  It uses a set of 6 specialized stainless steel tools of different sizes and shapes to address dysfunction in soft tissue (anything in the musculoskeletal system other than bone and cartilage).

Pelvic Health

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction can be caused by:

  • HYPOTONICITY (Weak pelvic floor muscles): contributing to stress incontinence, urge incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. Incontinence is NOT a normal part of aging
     

  • HYPERTONICITY (Tight pelvic floor muscles): contributing to Urinary and Fecal Urgency, Urge Incontinence, Chronic Pelvic Pain, Dyspareunia, Vaginismus, Vulvodynia, Pudendal Neuralgia, Interstitial Cystitis and Chronic Prostatitis
