The Integrated Systems Model
This model allows clinicians to be more effective and efficient with their assessment and treatment in order to help patients develop better movement strategies and habits to help reduce symptoms and improve function and performance.
Ultrasound imaging is useful as a biofeedback tool for ‘rewiring the brain’ or re-educating the proper timing of muscle contraction during both individual exercises and meaningful task training.
Manual therapy is a term that applies to any technique that involves the therapist’s hands and is often used to restore mobility to a joint, muscle or nerve as well as to relax, or activate, muscles. Many different manual techniques are used, often in combination, to help your body begin to move more efficiently.
Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) was developed by Dr. Chan Gunn to treat chronic pain syndromes that affect the musculoskeletal system. IMS is a dry needling technique (dry in that no drugs are injected) that involves the insertion of acupuncture needles into taut muscle bands.
Acupuncture can be used as the only form of therapy or it may be combined successfully with other forms of medical or physical therapy. The number of treatments will vary with each individual and the condition being treated.
It is not uncommon to find faulty alignment and biomechanics within the cranium or between the cranium and neck/jaw in conditions such as head and neck pain, jaw and orofacial pain, arm/leg pain and/or low back and pelvic floor pain and impairment.
Movement Training and Exercise Instruction
Recent research has changed the way therapists use exercises for both rehabilitation as well as strength and conditioning. For all areas of the body, the evidence supports correcting problems associated with how you use your muscles in a coordinated manner.
Prenatal and Postpartum Screening
There are many myths around pregnancy. Physiotherapists who specialize in pre/post natal care can help debunk these myths, playing an important role in the management of physical changes that can occur both during and after these nine months.
Pelvic Health Physiotherapy
Pelvic health physiotherapy is an umbrella term for physiotherapy that addresses aspects of anatomy and physiology related to or contained in the pelvis. This includes pelvic floor physiotherapy (the pelvic floor is the area between your legs, including your genitals, muscles, connective tissue and pelvic organs), which is an area of physiotherapy requiring specialized training.
