Chiropractic

Relieve aches and pains

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to headaches, back pain, neck pain, shoulder/elbow, and knee pain.

What makes chiropractic care different?

Unlike typical physicians who recommend drugs to treat various ailments, chiropractors will use a hands-on approach to examine, diagnose, and treat their patients. Chiropractic care focuses on neuromuscular disorders. These are disorders that affect the peripheral nervous system i.e. the motor and sensory nerves that connect the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. Chiropractors use drug-free methods such as manual adjustments and/or manipulation of the spine to treat these disorders. The main goal of chiropractic care is to restore the structural integrity of the spine, alleviate any irritations on the neurological tissues, and consequently improve the individual’s health and well-being.

What conditions can be treated using chiropractic care?

Chiropractors use a variety of methods to treat patients with different types of:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Repetitive strains
  • Headaches
  • Sports injuries
  • Arthritis pain

Common methods used in chiropractic treatment include Active Release Technique and medical acupuncture. Patients with serious pain problems can see a chiropractor up to 3 times a week. Our chiropractor will recommend an adequate schedule depending on the patient’s needs.

Massage Therapy

Relaxed muscles promote healing

Massage is well-recognized as an effective treatment for decreasing or palliating pain. A massage therapist focuses on the normalization of soft tissues affected by stress, injury, and illness using manual techniques. Massage is used to treat and prevent physical dysfunction of soft tissues and joints. Massage therapy involves manipulating these soft tissues and joints in order to develop, maintain, and rehabilitate physical function.

Benefits of massage therapy

  • Improves blood circulation
  • Enhances muscle relaxation
  • Improves immune function
  • Promotes health and well-being
  • Aids in healing as it promotes blood flow to injured tissues
  • Decreases muscle spasms
  • Reduced heart rate
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Helps remove scar tissues caused by injuries or an underlying medical condition
  • Pain reduction (increases the production of endorphins and enkephalins which are the body’s natural painkillers)

Do you need massage therapy?

Many of our clients come to us for massage therapy to combat stress, anxiety, and depression. Massage can be used for relaxation by anyone who is seeking to maintain a more normal productive life. The physical and psychological effects of massage therapy have been researched for many years and it has been proven to promote overall well-being. Massage can also help prevent injuries and dysfunctions as it helps to decrease muscle spasms and improve circulation. Whether you’re seeking massage therapy to alleviate neck pain or for preventative reasons, our qualified therapists can help.

Orthotics

Correct posture starts with the foot

The Centre for Physical Health specializes in utilizing state of the art technology to help obtain an accurate portrait of the patient’s pathology and customizing a solution suitable for each individual patient. Orthotics are prescribed medical devices that can be used to correct foot issues like flat fee or problems with how you walk, stand, or run. Orthotics can also help to address foot pain that is attributed to an underlying condition like diabetes, bursitis, and arthritis. With the right orthotics, you can get the treatment needed to fix flat feet and avoid surgery.

What to expect during your visit?

During your appointment, we will take 3D images of each foot and perform thorough examinations in order to better understand your issue. We will probably ask you to perform a range of motions like walking and running which will help the podiatrist to note how your feet, ankles, and legs move. We will assess these movements in order to better understand your condition and then go ahead to make a precise mold of your feet. The mold will then be turned into an orthotic that helps address the issue.

How to wear your orthotic

Custom orthotics are designed to perfectly fit the contours of your shoe without any discomfort. Our prescription orthotics are made from molds of your feet so you can rest assured that they’ll fit well. We promise to evaluate your foot problem, offer a custom fit that is made using high-quality materials that last for many years with proper care.

Acupuncture

Finding your pressure points

Medical Acupuncture applies the evidence-based concepts of acupuncture to relieve pain, alter movement patterns, and improve overall function. When you come to our clinic, expect a comprehensive acupuncture program that is designed to relieve pain and improve movement regardless of the condition you’re suffering from. Acupuncture is a treatment that has been heavily researched in different parts of the world. Adequate evidence is available to prove the benefits of acupuncture when done by qualified specialists.

Benefits of acupuncture treatment

  • Alleviates pain
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Reduces stress
  • Improves nerve conduction
  • Addiction control
  • Improves organ function

Is acupuncture treatment for you?

Our specialists come with extensive knowledge in administering acupuncture treatment to patients suffering from a variety of conditions including:

  • Headaches
  • Neck and back pain
  • Muscle pulls and tears
  • Inflammation
  • Shin splints
  • Bursitis
  • Tendinosis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Jaw pain (TMJ disorders)

What to expect during your visit?

There are different methods used in acupuncture treatment but the most common is electro-acupuncture which involves inserting needs at specific points along the body then attaching them to a device that generates electrical impulses. Most of our clients will describe their first acupuncture treatment as pleasurable and relaxing. You’re likely to feel a tingling, warm sensation on the points where treatment is being applied. The acupuncturist will target specific areas during treatment and stimulate the body to release endorphins which are responsible for the calming effect.

Chiropodist

Healthy feet, healthy body

A chiropodist is a primary health care provider who is educated and equipped to handle all your foot-related problems. The goal of a chiropodist is to improve or sustain one’s quality of life by improving patient’s mobility, alleviating foot pain, and providing education on foot-related health. Whether you’re dealing with bunions, heel pain, or fungal infections on your foot, a chiropodist can help you seek appropriate treatment. In most cases, the specialist will perform physical examinations and prescribe topical and oral medications as treatment. For severe foot problems, the specialist may recommend orthotics which are customized foot inserts designed to address walking patterns and alignment issues.

Common conditions a chiropodist can treat include:

  • Fungal infections on the foot
  • Bunions
  • Heel pain
  • Hammertoes
  • Neuromas
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Warts
  • Corns and calluses
  • High arched feet, flat feet
  • Runner’s knee
  • Shin splints

How to prepare for your chiropodist appointment

First and foremost, it’s important to take time to specifically understand the part or specific parts of your foot that are in pain because this will help determine your podiatric problem. Is pain consistent or intermittent? Does exercising make it better or worse? You may even bring in the shoes that you normally wear to your appointment. Your chiropodist will also want to get your complete medical history since some foot disorders are hereditary. We’re happy to answer any concerns you may have and discuss treatment options with you.

Striving for excellence in patient experience, evidence based practice and clinical outcomes.
