Physiotherapy is a treatment you may need when health problems make it hard to move around and do everyday tasks. It helps you move better and may relieve pain. It also helps improve or restore your physical function and your fitness level.The goal of physiotherapy is to make daily tasks and activities easier; help your joints move better and to restore or increase your flexibility, strength, endurance, coordination, and/or balance.
Treatments are Hands-on and Movement based with minimal use of machines or equipment. Sessions are strictly one-on-one and there is no switching between clients.
We use a blend of two ” Whole Body Approach” Philosophies.
- John Barnes Myofascial Release Approach:
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
The use of Myofascial Release allows us to look at each client as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which we use a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy. We promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.
- Functional Movement Systems (Selective Functional Movement Assessment):
Standardized Movement Based Diagnostic Screening, Testing, Assessment and Rehab System used generally by Professional Sports teams. Selective Functional Movement Assessment or SFMA helps to identify movement dysfunction which can be a result of pain.
It is based upon the concept that seemingly unrelated impairments in a remote anatomical region may contribute or associated with the client’s primary complaint. It gives us a baseline information whether the issue is mobility, stability or motor control dysfunction.
Based on assessment, appropriate interventions in the form of mobility exercises or stability/motor control reloading exercises are discussed.
