NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT) is a sophisticated form of manual therapy that combines motor control theory and manual muscle testing. It is an excellent modality in rehabilitation and manual therapy as it not only identifies the cause of pain and dysfunction, but it also corrects it quickly and painlessly.
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a unique, complete and complementary system of table-based assisted stretching, focusing on the fascia and joint capsule as the key elements in achieving optimal flexibility, strength, performance and pain relief.
Fascial Stretch Therapy Benefits:
- Improved posture
- Reduced risk of injuries
- Releases endorphins which are natural pain suppressants
- Improved strength and flexibility
- Decreased stress
- Improved athletic performance
- Decreased muscle soreness
Hands on therapy applied to the body in the form of joint mobilizations, soft tissue therapy or manual stretching.
*Most versatile treatment option, great for most acute and chronic conditions.
The use of vacuum like pressure on the body in an attempt to release muscle and fascial restrictions, while also stimulating blood flow. Usually performed with the use of plastic/rubber cups.
*Great for muscle spasms, muscle dysfunction (knots), and localized pain.
The insertion of needles into areas of the body in an attempt to correct muscle and nerve dysfunction by increasing blood flow, and encouraging proper firing of muscle and nerve fibres.
*Great for joint pain (knee/shoulder), neck/back pain, carpal tunnel, tennis elbow
A variety of therapies aimed to relieve pain and restore function by tapping into the body’s self-healing properties.
*Great for joint pain, Tendonitis, TMJ Disorders.
Spinal Decompression is a form of mechanical traction through the use of a specialized table. It works by gently providing traction to the vertebrae of your spine creating a negative pressure within the discs. The discs in your spine are a gel-like substance that can protrude or ‘herniate’ putting pressure on important structures of the back (ie. Nerves) causing pain. The negative pressure can cause the discs to retract relieving this pressure and discomfort. It also promotes healing by introducing water, and nutrient rich fluids back into the discs.
Spinal Decompression works great for disc herniations, degenerative discs, osteoarthritis, and as an alternative to spinal adjustments.
Tape applied directly to the skin to offer stability and protection to the joints and muscles during physical activity.
*Works great for ankle sprains (chronic instability), wrist injuries, and shoulder stabilization.
