The physiotherapy service at Well Care Physiotherapy and Sports Rehabilitation offers a complete range of consultation, examination, and treatment services, including:
Dry needling is a form of therapy in which fine needles are inserted into myofascial trigger points (painful knots in muscles), tendons, ligaments, or near nerves in order to stimulate a healing response in painful musculoskeletal conditions. Dry needling is not acupuncture or Oriental Medicine; that is, it does not have the purpose of altering the flow of energy ("Qi") along traditional Chinese meridians for the treatment of diseases. In fact, dry needling is a modern, science-based intervention for the treatment of pain and dysfunction in musculoskeletal conditions such as neck pain, shoulder impingement, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, knee pain, shin splints, plantar fascitis, or low-back pain.
Manual therapy is a specilized form of physical therapy delivered with hands. Practitioners uer their hands to put puressure on muscle tissue and manipulate joints in an attempt to decrease the back pain caused by muscle spasm, muscle tension, and joint dysfunction.
Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletel complints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of arms or legs, and headaches. This treatement uses "Spinal manipulation", to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force in to joints that have become hypomobile - or restricted in their movement as a result of a tissue injury.
Pain management is important for ongoing pain control, especially if you suffer with long-term or chronic pain. After getting a pain assessment, your doctor can prescribe pain medicine, other pain treatments, or psychotherapy to help with pain relief.
Physical therapy helps develop the strength and range of motion children need to move through their environment easily and effectively. Physical therapy goals often include help with developmental milestones like sitting, standing, crawling and walking. Our licensed physical therapists also assess the need for orthotics (like splints and braces) and recommend adaptive equipment.
Neurological diseases are disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves throughout the body. Together they control the working of the body. When something goes wrong with part of your nervous system, you can have trouble moving, speaking, swallowing, breathing, or learning.
A treatment plan typically involves physiotherapy to align and activate joints and muscles to enable better postural control and stability? so that patients are able to move and function more successfully. This is achieved through facilitating movement patterns, strength training, and by helping them to exercise and practice movement skills.
Orthopaedic Injuries are any injury or condition that may occur to the muscle, joint and nervous system in the body. There are many different types of injuries that can occur from either an acute incident, or a problem that has built up slowly over time. Some techniques and approaches involved in orthopedic physical therapy to make recovery faster are strength training, hot/cold packs, joint mobilizations and manipulations, and electrical stimulation.
