Functional Dry Needling
This technique involves inserting thin needles into irritable and tight muscles which creates a change in the muscle and surrounding connective tissue. The technique has also been shown to stimulate nerves that allow the body to release its own painkillers. Trigger point dry needling is often combined with additional physical therapy techniques and has been shown to address pain, and improve movement and overall function. (physiotherapyalberta.ca).

MVA
Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA) – It is important to seek medical advice as soon as practical following a motor vehicle accident. Please use 911 for an emergency. Following an MVA please contact your insurance company to start a claim. If you have seen a doctor, they may recommend physiotherapy, massage therapy or chiropractic care following an accident. You may still book an appointment without having seen a physician. Either way, it is important that your insurance company knows you are seeking treatment for personal injury in order to complete the required paperwork and to start your treatment as soon as possible.
Pelvic Health
Ladies! (And Gentleman too!) Pelvic Floor physiotherapy has been established as the first line of defense in the treatment for incontinence and pelvic pain. Pelvic floor dysfunction can be caused by an imbalance of the core and pelvic floor muscles that are either too tight or too weak. A pelvic health physiotherapist is trained specifically to assess and treat the pelvic floor muscles and help uncover the cause of your incontinence or pelvic pain issues.
Taping
Evaluation and assessment are key in the treatment of any clinical condition. In order to get the desired results from a tape application as well as any other treatment, a full assessment is necessary. Taping has been proven to have positive physiological effects on the skin, lymphatic and circulatory system, fascia, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints. It can be used in conjunction with a multitude of other treatments and modalities and is effective during the rehabilitative and chronic phases on an injury as well as being used for preventative measures.
