The Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation Program helps individuals recover from traumatic injury and illness, hip fractures and joint surgery. It could be the result of serious injuries in a car accident, a long illness in hospital, or a broken hip from a fall.
Suddenly, the hundreds of movements, actions and activities that we perform each day are impossible. We help individuals regain their strength, physical abilities and independence.
Hydrotherapy is the use of water in the treatment of different conditions, including arthritis and related rheumatic complaints and recovery from trauma. Hydrotherapy differs from swimming because it involves special exercises that you do in a warm-water pool.
Hydrotherapy tends to be different from aquarobics, which can be quite strenuous, as it’s generally more focused on slow, controlled movements and relaxation.
All of our therapists are trained in hands-on manual therapy for the purpose of joint and soft tissue mobilization.
Myofascial therapy (also known as myofascial release therapy or myofascial trigger point therapy) is a type of safe, low load stretch that releases tightness and pain throughout the body caused by myofascial pain syndrome, which describes chronic muscle pain that is worse in certain areas known as trigger points. Myofascial therapy relieves soft tissue restrictions that cause pain. Some causes of chronic myofascial pain or low back pain are easier to diagnose than others: trauma (such as a car accident or fall), cumulative posture misalignment or mechanical deficits, a compressed nerve from a herniated disc, or inflammatory conditions
Intramuscular Dry Needle
IDN or TDN is an effective therapy to treat muscular tension and spasm which commonly accompanies conditions such as arthritis, nerve irritation, muscular strain, ligament strains and herniated discs. It is called “Dry” Needling because there is no solution injected as with a hypodermic needle during a flu shot. With Dry Needling, the needle itself and the effects it produces within the tissue is the treatment.
Acupuncture is used to encourage healing, reduce or relieve pain. The needles are very fine and are inserted in points in the body that correspond to energy pathways called meridians. Our therapists are trained in "Anatomical" acupuncture which combines the knowledge of anatomy, pathology and physiology with the traditional Chinese approach. Although complete recovery may take several sessions, generally we can tell if acupuncture is going to help within 3-5 treatments. On your first assessment and treatment, a physical exam is done to determine what may be contributing to the problem and exercises or posture advice may be provided as well.
The Kinesio Taping® Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting.
