Therapeutic laser delivers a focused beam of light energy photons that are absorbed selectively by injured cells and transformed into biochemical energy in the mitochondria of the cells. The effect is photochemical. The converted energy stimulates production of new proteins needed for cellular repair of injured soft tissue. Excellent modality for wound healing, anti-inflammatory application and pain control.

Protective taping, tensoring and bandaging services and supplies are available for treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. Often athletes requiring "extra" support require taping in order to facilitate earlier return to activity.  Kinesio taping as demonstrated in the picture above, is a relatively newer taping technique that has several neurophysiological effects on the tissue dependent upon how its applied. Kinesio tape can inhibit muscle tone, facilitate muscle activity, reduce swelling and support injured tissue dependent on the tension and direction the tape is applied.

TMJ (Temperomandibular Joint) Dysfunction

TMJ dysfunction is a disorder involving the mechanics of the jaw. The temperomandibular joint (TMJ), like any other joint in the body, can develop joint arthritic problems or be negatively influenced by muscle imbalances, whiplashes or extensive clenching of the teeth. Often these patients are referred from local dentists or oral surgeons from Winnipeg for the treatment of TMJ dysfunctions.

Demystifying Physiotherapy: Answering Your Most Pressing Questions

Physiotherapy, also known as physical therapy, is a vital component of healthcare that focuses on improving movement and function, managing pain, and preventing injury or disability. Despite its importance, there are often questions and misconceptions surrounding physiotherapy. In this article, we'll address some of the most common inquiries to provide clarity and understanding about this valuable form of treatment.

  1. What exactly is physiotherapy? Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that involves evaluating, diagnosing, and treating a range of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. It utilizes various techniques such as manual therapy, exercise prescription, electrotherapy, and education to promote recovery and restore optimal function.
  2. Who can benefit from physiotherapy? Physiotherapy can benefit individuals of all ages and activity levels. Whether you're recovering from surgery, managing a chronic condition, or seeking to enhance athletic performance, physiotherapy can be tailored to meet your specific needs. It's commonly sought after for conditions like back pain, sports injuries, arthritis, and neurological disorders.
  3. Do I need a referral to see a physiotherapist? In many cases, a referral from a physician or other healthcare provider is not necessary to see a physiotherapist. Direct access to physiotherapy services allows individuals to seek treatment without delay, empowering them to take control of their health and well-being. However, there may be exceptions depending on your location and insurance coverage, so it's advisable to check with your healthcare provider or insurer.
  4. What should I expect during a physiotherapy session? During your initial physiotherapy assessment, the physiotherapist will conduct a thorough evaluation of your condition, including assessing your movement, strength, flexibility, and pain levels. Based on their findings, they will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your goals and needs. Treatment sessions may include a combination of hands-on techniques, therapeutic exercises, modalities like heat or ice, and patient education.
  5. How many sessions will I need? The number of physiotherapy sessions required varies depending on the nature and severity of your condition, as well as your individual response to treatment. Some individuals may experience significant improvement after just a few sessions, while others may require ongoing care over a longer period. Your physiotherapist will work with you to establish realistic goals and milestones, adjusting your treatment plan as needed to optimize your outcomes.
  6. Is physiotherapy covered by insurance? Many insurance plans provide coverage for physiotherapy services, either partially or in full. However, coverage amounts and eligibility criteria may vary depending on your insurance provider and plan. It's important to review your insurance policy or contact your insurer directly to understand your coverage options and any associated out-of-pocket expenses.
  7. Can I do physiotherapy exercises at home? Yes, physiotherapy exercises are often prescribed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan and can be performed at home between sessions. Your physiotherapist will provide you with detailed instructions on how to perform the exercises safely and effectively, as well as any necessary equipment or modifications. Consistency and adherence to your home exercise program are key to maximizing the benefits of physiotherapy and accelerating your recovery.
