Acupuncture
Acupuncture
Acupuncture

Acupuncture Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative to medication in the treatment of pain and healing. Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins – the body’s natural pain-relieving neurohormones – through the insertion of needles into specific anatomical points (acupuncture points) to encourage natural healing. Our Physiotherapy team is trained through the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada and McMaster University Acupuncture Program to offer this complimentary service.   Acupuncture can treat all types of musculoskeletal pain. It has been known as an effective method of relieving chronic back, neck, or knee pain. Acupuncture can also calm a spastic or painful muscle in those who have experienced trauma to the muscle. People with joint pain, like those with arthritis, may also benefit from acupuncture because it can help to reduce inflammation and restore natural function to the joints. It may also be helpful in treating sciatica and tendonitis. Studies have shown…

Cupping
Cupping
Cupping

Cupping Made universally famous by the purple circles on Michael Phelps and other athletes in the Olympics, but not a new treatment by any means. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C. Cupping is done by your trained therapist placing cups on your skin to create suction. It is utilized for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage. Cupping is a technique with origins in traditional European, Middle Eastern, and (to a large extent) Asian medicine. There are several forms of cupping treatment performed around the world. It has been proposed that cupping increases the circulation to the area treated, helping to relieve pain and muscle tension. Proponents of the treatment suggest that collagen synthesis “leads to increasing stiffness of the connective tissues,” and that cupping can decrease collagen…

WAVE Vibration Exercise
WAVE Vibration Exercise
WAVE Vibration Exercise

WAVE Vibration Exercise Although the use of Whole Body Vibration exercise is an emerging concept in North America, it has been validated through 40 years of research. The technology utilizes a frequency range which has been proven to be both safe and effective. The technology was originally designed to treat bone and lean muscle mass loss in cosmonauts who had spent considerable time in a weightless environment, in addition to enhancing power and strength and accelerating recovery in Russian Olympic athletes. Eventually, the technology was introduced to Europe in the early 1990’s, where further research was done to validate its effects. Due to its many benefits, the technology has quickly gained acceptance and is now utilized by universities, professional sports teams, and health professionals in the rehabilitation and medical fields. How it Works The movement of the vibration plate with a small amplitude of 2 to 4 mm stimulates the body’s natural ‘stretch reflex’ (Tonic Vibration…

Medical practitioners across North America have discovered a modern medical technology that heals injuries safely and effectively on a cellular level. This medical technology is the Theralase® line of therapeutic medical laser systems.   The Theralase® superpulsed laser system can penetrate up to 5 inches (12.7 cm) into tissue, to promote cellular regeneration at the source of injury. Laser energy helps to repair damaged cells by accelerating the body's natural healing mechanisms.

Spinal Decompression
Spinal Decompression
Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression   Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine, that changes the force and position of the spine. This change takes pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.   Chattanooga’s Triton DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy is a leading non-surgical alternative for disc related syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine. DTS Therapy uses simple, yet sophisticated equipment manufactured by the leading rehabilitation equipment manufacturer in North America. Chattanooga’s Titron DTS Decompressive Traction System is the most popular decompression system…

Ultrasound Therapy
Ultrasound Therapy
Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound Therapy Ultrasound is an effective modality commonly seen in Physiotherapy practice. In most ultrasound applications, a hand-held transducer is moved in a circular motion over an injured area. The transducer produces sound waves too high-pitched for humans to hear, and those waves heat tendons, muscles and other tissues to improve blood flow and hasten the healing process. Scientifically, it has the capacity to stimulate or enhance the normal events of healing and thus increase the efficiency of the tissue repair phases. If a tissue is repairing in a compromised or inhibited fashion, the application of therapeutic ultrasound at an appropriate dose will enhance this activity. If the tissue is healing ‘normally’, the application will, speed the process and thus enable the tissue to reach its healing endpoint faster. A tool in Physiotherapy since 1950s Ultrasound can be a part of a comprehensive treatment approach.       Can help Muscle Injury Tendon Injury Inflammation…

Electrical Stimulation - T.E.N.S. & I.F.C.

Electrical Stimulation - T.E.N.S. & I.F.C. Electrical Stimulation comes in many forms and help our patients manage acute and chronic pain along with stimulation dormant and weakened muscles. Through the sensitivity of our nervous system to electrical impulses each method of electrical stimulation utilizes the bodies own nerve pathways to gain an effect over pain or muscle activation. TENS is a noninvasive method for relieving pain. People who experience pain relief from TENS may be able to reduce their intake of pain medications, some of which can be addictive or cause adverse side effects. TENS are portable and safe for home use. TENS units work by delivering small electrical impulses through electrodes that have adhesive pads to attach them to a person's skin. These electrical impulses flood the nervous system, reducing its ability to transmit pain signals to the spinal cord and brain. The same electrical impulses also stimulate the body to produce natural pain relievers called endorphins.…

Iontophoresis
Iontophoresis
Iontophoresis

Iontophoresis Iontophoresis is a treatment that allows medication to be delivered across your skin to the painful area without having to have an injection into your muscle or soft tissue, through a vein in your arm, or taking a pill. Less invasive and highly effective, Iontophoresis is the perfect option for patients seeking relief from stubborn inflammation at a rapid pace. During iontophoresis, a medical device is used to pass a mild electrical current through electrodes. You’ll feel a tingling sensation from the electrical current, but it shouldn’t be painful.  When using iontophoresis, the electrical current helps the skin easily absorb the medication (dexamethosone). Most iontophoresis sessions for sports injuries last 10 to 15 minutes.     Benefits Decrease inflammation Decrease pain Decrease muscle spasm Decrease swelling and edema Reduce calcium deposits in the body Manage scar tissue

Testimonials

Having come in with a hairline fracture in his left wrist, my son underwent physiotherapy. The staff is very friendly and professional. They did not waste time while still maintaining a thorough preliminary evaluation. With continued and consistent appointments along with the at home exercises my son's strength increased by 10 lbs within a mere 5 sessions. Direct billing for benefits made it very convenient. Highly recommended.
