Massage Therapists

Manual Osteopathy

Manual Osteopathic therapists work with the premise that nothing in the body functions on its own. By working on all the systems that are mutually dependent, the body can restore balance and function efficiently.

A thorough assessment addresses each component that can cause dysfunction such as biomechanical problems, musculoskeletal problems, organ dysfunction, and circulatory impairment.

The therapist uses specific techniques to address the structure and function of the body.

  • Osteoarticulations – Joint manipulations and oscillatory movements to help restore the spine, joints, and other structures.
  • Advanced Myofascial Release – Everything is connected through fascia, down to the cellular level. Fascial restrictions can cause impairment to joints, nerves, viscera, blood, and lymph.
  • Visceral Manipulation – Is a specialized focus on internal organs to address fascial restrictions, and neurovascular restrictions that can cause motility impairment. These restrictions if left untreated can become somatic dysfunctions that can lead to structural problems.
  • Cranial Osteopathy – Is a gentle approach to treating the dura membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that protect the brain and spinal cord. This extends throughout nerves and connective tissue.
  • Lymphatic drainage – Common sites of occlusion include the restriction of lymph, creating stagnation and congestion in areas of restriction. It is a gentle approach to help the drainage of lymphatic fluid, restoring a balance in the body’s fluid dynamics.

What to Expect during treatment?

  • The client is to preferably wear shorts and a tank top, or shorts and bra top.
  • A thorough assessment from head to toe.
  • Depending on the complaint a treatment can focus on one or all these areas, osteoarticulation, visceral manipulation, myofascial release, cranial osteopathy, lymphatic drainage.

Women’s Pelvic Health

This treatment involves a detailed discussion of your condition followed by an examination to further assess your bladder, pelvic floor health and pelvic floor muscle strength & activation. Education is a vital component to this assessment and you will learn a lot about your body and your specific issues. Most importantly you will learn that you do not have to live with pelvic floor dysfunction and urinary incontinence and that treatment is effective and empowering. It is NOT just about doing kegals!

 

To treat:

  • Stress urinary incontinence
  • Urge urinary incontinence
  • Painful intercourse
  • Painful episiotomy/tearing
  • Perineum preparation for birth
  • Pelvic pain

Concussion Management

Post Concussion Syndrome can be managed by trained Physical Therapists to help you recover from your Concussion. A thorough assessment will be performed to determine the severity of your injury and to identify areas of your vestibular and ocular systems that may have been impacted by your injury. Education is a key component to this treatment and your Therapist will help identify any lifestyle modifications to help your brain rest. Once your symptoms start to settle, we will begin treatment to retrain the areas of your brain that were effected by concussion.

Baseline Testing (performed prior to a head injury) involves a computerized neurocognitive test (ImPACT), a balance assessment as well as a Vestibular/Ocular Motor Screen (VOMS).

Our Therapists are Shift Level 1 and 2 Concussion Management Providers.

  • Baseline Testing
  • Concussion Education
  • Symptom Management
  • Cervical Spine Treatment
  • Return to Play
  • Vestibular and Ocular Exercise Prescription
  • Neurocognitive Testing (ImPACT)

Vestibular Management

A detailed vestibular assessment allows for differential diagnosis of complex diseases and disorders of the vestibular system and management of dizziness. More specifically, a vestibular assessment can help identify any vestibular dysfunction and allow the physical therapist to implement a specific treatment plan to address any balance and/or dizziness concerns.

Examples include but are not limited to the following:

  • Assessment and treatment of migraine associated vestibular dysfunction
  • Differential diagnosis of complex vestibular and balance dysfunction
  • Vestibular treatment techniques to assist in psychogenic dizziness and imbalance
  • Assess and treat BPPV with advanced hybrid maneuvers for multiple comorbidities
  • Identify patterns of nystagmus with single and multiple canal BPPV
  • Assess and manage “chronic dizziness”

Spinal Manipulation

Definition: Spinal Manipulation is a manual therapy technique used by your Physical Therapist in which they apply a low amplitude, high velocity thrust to a joint, at or near the end of the passive (or physiological) range of motion. This is often accompanied by an audible “crack” or “pop”. The common feature of spinal manipulation techniques is the fact that they achieve a pop or cracking sound within synovial joints.

To receive authorization to perform spinal manipulations in Alberta, Physical Therapists are required to:

  • Be on the General Register.
  • Have completed a post entry-level spinal manipulation education program that includes as part of the curriculum: theory, practice and final (summative) evaluation conducted by the course instructor which resulted in a passing grade; and
  • the practice standard on performance of restricted activities.

Physical Therapists are expected to maintain their competence to perform any restricted activities.

Spinal Manipulation is used as a treatment for:

  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Chronic migraines
  • Chronic pain (especially back pain)
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • upper or lower extremity pain referring from the spine

The benefits of spinal manipulation are to restore joint mobility and reduce pain. Spinal manipulation reduces pain through neurophysiological and psychological effects.

Not all cases are appropriate for spinal manipulation, book an appointment today and one of highly trained Physical Therapists will conduct a detailed assessment of your condition and overall health to determine whether spinal manipulation is appropriate for you.
