We specialize in the assessment,
treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries. This includes, but is not limited to, the following conditions:
Foot and ankle pain
knee and leg pain
Joint and muscle sprains/strains
A chiropractic adjustment is the use of a specific, controlled
force applied to a restricted joint that is not moving properly. Chiropractic adjustments help return the bones to a normal
position and restore proper motion to the joint.
We use the Diversified technique, which is the traditional, hands on, chiropractic adjusting technique utilizing
a high velocity, low amplitude thrust. As this force is applied to the joint, it will generally result in a "popping"
sound called a cavitation, which is simply a release of gas from the fluid within the joint. We also use joint mobilizations,
a lower force technique, to restore proper joint mobility.
Accident RehabilitationOur rehabilitation programs for motor vehicle accident
injuries are designed to help you recover quickly. Whether you have had a mild whiplash or a more serious accident, we will
develop a plan to guide you through the recovery process. Treatments following a motor vehicle accident are covered by your
automobile insurance with no medical referral necessary.Workplace Injuries (WSIB)Our clinic is registered with WSIB (Workplace Safety & Insurance Board). If you have been
injured at work, the cost of treatment is covered by WSIB. We will help you recover from your injuries and make a safe return
to work. We are authorized providers of the POC (Program of Care) for low back, upper extremity and lower extremity injuries.Custom Foot OrthoticsOrthotics help re-align
your feet and ankles in order to achieve a better base of support for your whole body. Custom orthotics can provide relief
from foot/ankle pain, knee pain, hip pain and back pain.
We use Superfeet orthotics. This is a non-weight bearing method performed with t he patient in a seated position with the hip, knee and foot aligned with the ankle in subtalar neutral. The orthotic is then molded to the shape of your foot.
The result is better alignment
of the feet, ankles, knees, hips and pelvis which provides the spinal column with a steadier base. Therapeutic Ultrasound Ultrasound works by applying
sound waves to the injured area. Ultrasound increases the rate of healing by two different mechanisms; thermal and non-thermal.
Thermal effects of ultrasound increases blood flow and reduces muscle spasm in the affected areas. Non-thermal effects include
tissue regeneration, reduction of swelling, and synthesis of protein and collagen. Ultrasound is effective, safe, and totally
painless. Electrical Muscle Stimulation This
therapy involves low levels of electrical impulses delivered to the injured, painful tissues to reduce pain and relax tight
muscles. Often described by patients as a "tingling" sensation, these impulses stimulate the body to release natural
pain relievers, called endorphins. This therapy can be used to treat acute or chronic pain.
Infrared light energy is used to temporarily elevate tissue temperature and increase localized blood circulation,
thereby providing accelerated tissue healing. The result is improved personal comfort; relieving minor muscular and joint
pain and relaxing muscles to improve range of motion.
