Acupuncture 

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is the evidence based application of the traditional theories of acupuncture, combined with the current concepts of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology & pathophysiology. 
Combining ancient Chinese principles with modern science in order to relieve acute pain, alter movement, and improve function. It involves the insertion of very fine sterile disposable needles in specific points on the body to access different physiological responses. 

The scientifically proven benefits of acupuncture include: 
  • Pain relief
  • Inflammation reduction
  • Improved blood flow and arterial function
  • Stress reduction
  • Improved nerve conduction
  • Improved systemic organ function

Electroacupuncture

Electroacupuncture is the method of attaching acupuncture needles to a device that generates a mild but continuous electrical pulse. Electro acupuncture is extremely effective as it stimulates a larger region surrounding acupuncture points, increases blood circulation, relaxing spastic muscles, and releasing painful trigger points.

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction

Our Chiropractors are trained to correct poor joint mechanics and joint misalignments. This includes treatment of TMJ which focuses on Joint Mobilizations, adjustments and soft tissue techniques applied directly to the TMJ and its surroundings musculature. 

In most cases, TMJ is influenced or exacerbated by poor joint mechanics, and tight musculature in the upper back and neck. Of equal importance, treatment also focuses on corrections to the mechanics and positioning of the joints in the upper back and neck to relieve symptoms associated with TMJ Dysfunction. 

While these treatments are employed, the motion of your upper back, neck and jaw joints may improve and your symptoms such as ear pain, jaw locking, headaches and neck pain can be reduced or even eliminated.

Manual Osteopathy

Manual Osteopathy Services Provided By : Karin A. Lorento MSc DOMP

We welcome Karin A. Lorento MSc DOMP, Manual Osteopathic Practitioner, whom is now accepting patients. She is a member of The (OCPP) Osteopathy Chronic Pain Clinics Of Canada & The (ACMA) Canadian Alliance of Alternative Medicine.

Osteopathy is completely hands-on, meaning that the practitioner is working with not only the bones, but joints, muscles, ligaments and fascia as well, to bring back balance as these areas can become constricted, restricted or inflamed. Osteopathy looks at the human body as a whole, with treatments aiming to positively affect the body’s nervous system, circulatory and lymphatic systems.

  • Soft Tissue Manipulation or Advanced Fascia Release
  • Trigger Point Therapy

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Women’s Services Provided By : Hiral Desai BPT

Providing services for Urinary Incontinence, Pelvic Organ Prolapse, Pelvic Pain, Prenatal Care, Diastasis Recti and Post-Natal Recovery.

Did you know that 1 in 4 Women are Incontinent? Or that 3.3. Million Canadians suffer from Incontinence? Having bladder leakage following childbirth is not normal. 

Your Pelvic Floor Muscles have 5 Major Functions : 
  • Maintaining Continence of the Bowel and Bladder
  • Allowing Sexual Function and Pleasure
  • Providing Support to the Internal Organs; keeping the uterus, bladder and intestines within the abdominal cavity where they belong
  • Providing Support to the Lower Back
  • Helping the Circulatory System to get the blood and other body fluids from the legs back to the heart
Women’s Pelvic Health: To Kegel or Not?

Hypotonicity (Weak Pelvic Floor Muscles) Contribute to Stress Incontinence, Urge Incontinence as well as Pelvic Organ Prolapse. 

Hypertonicity (Tight Pelvic Floor Muscles) Contribute to Urinary and Fecal Urgency, Urge Incontinence, Chronic Pelvic Pain, Dyspareunia, Vaginismus, Vulvodynia, Pudendal Neuralgia, Interstitial Cystitis and Painful Urination.

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction can be diagnosed by physiotherapists with specialized training using internal & external manual techniques to evaluate the function of the pelvic floor muscles. This also assesses the ability to contract and relax these muscles. The bones and muscles of the lower back, hips and Sacro-iliac joints (SI Joints) will also need to be assessed, since these joints can stress the pelvic floor muscles.

Diastasis Recti is the separation in the rectus abdominis or “6 pack” muscle. Most often occurng during pregnancy. If you can lift your head while lying on your back and the centre of your stomach protrudes out, you may have what is called rectus diastasis.  It is measured by the number of fingers you can fit between the muscle when lying on your back and lifting your head.  

Why Is This Important? Your abdominals work with your pelvic floor, therefore a separation of the rectus abdominis/core muscles can make the pelvic floor less efficient and may also contribute to incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. Corrective exercises are recommended.


Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) treatments are non-invasive treatments and that promote accelerated recovery from chronic injuries. 

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy is often used as treatment for musculoskeletal conditions involving connective tissues, such as ligaments, tendons, bone, heel and joints.
