At Crowchild Physiotherapy, we believe every patient is unique, and every recovery plan should be customized to suit your goals. That is why we have a variety of physiotherapy services. Chances are, your physiotherapist will recommend a combination of different therapies to speed your complete recovery.
Dry needling is only performed by specially trained, certified physiotherapists. A very thin monofilament needle penetrates your skin. This activates the underlying trigger points in the muscles. Dry needling helps manage neuromusculoskeletal pain and impairments in mobility.
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is noninvasive. The treatment involves sound waves delivered to injured soft tissues. These waves help to promote healing and reduce pain. Shockwave therapy helps relieve pain intensity and increase functionality in conditions like plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff issues, elbow tendinopathy, and Achilles tendinopathy. Most patients say shockwave therapy feels like small pulses against their skin.
A patented instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization, the Graston technique breaks down scar tissue. This non-surgical technique benefits connective tissues throughout the body, including bones, organs, muscles, nerves, and the surrounding blood vessels.
Manual therapy is an excellent option for recovering from injury and seeking relief from chronic pain. Manual therapy mobilizes joints and applies pressure to muscles to relieve pain and promote recovery. The physiotherapist’s hands give them information about your issues that no other assessment tool can provide.
An ancient alternative medicine, cupping therapy involves your physiotherapist putting special cups on your skin that create suction for a few minutes. Helpful for dealing with pain, inflammation, relaxation, blood flow, and general well-being, cupping is also used as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Traction machines relieve pain and restore muscle function through the mobilizing of muscles, joints and ligaments. Traction machines help reduce disc pressure in the spine, relax your muscles, improve blood flow and relieve nerve root compression. Traction is an effective treatment for pinched nerves and neck pain. Mechanical traction is more effective than just exercising.
