Physiotherapy focuses on treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Physiotherapy is safe and drug free. Physiotherapists use manual therapy, technology based therapy and exercise programs to reduce your pain, improve your ranges of motion, increase your strength and improve your overall level of function. Working with other practitioners at Activa Clinics, they treat conditions such as injuries sustained at work, in sports or in a motor vehicle accident, age related aches and pains, limitations in ranges of motion and many other conditions.
Chiropractic focuses on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of neuromusculoskeletal conditions. Chiropractic care is a hands-on healthcare approach, which is safe, drug free and non-invasive. Depending on the needs of the patient, using chiropractic adjustments, manual therapy, exercise programs, electrical modalities, laser, life style counseling, patient education and many other techniques, chiropractors treat conditions such as headaches, neck and back pain, whiplash, sprains/strains, motor vehicle accident related injuries, arthritis, work related injuries, sports injuries, disc problems and many other conditions.
Hands on treatment for the body’s muscular system
Massage therapy focuses on treatment of the soft tissues of the body, using different forms of manual therapy. Massage therapy can help with relaxation, reduce pain, improve joint mobility, improve blood circulation, increase lymphatic drainage and improve overall function. Our experienced massage therapists work with the rest of our healthcare team to treat headaches, pain, fibromyalgia, injuries, carpal tunnel, whiplash, tensnion and many other conditions.
Acupuncture is a safe, non-invasive, holistic form of ancient Chinese medicine, which has been used for centuries to treat a variety of conditions. Acupuncture involves the insertion of a series of specially designed, thin, flexible needles. These needles, which stay in the body for about 15-20 mninutes, do not cause tissue damage or bleeding. They provide stimulation of certain acupuncture points to treat headaches, pain, stress, digestive problems, addictive issues and many other conditions. If you are afraid of needles, another option is to have acupuncture treatment using our state of the art laser system, which requires no needle insertion, but is equally effective.
A revolutionary form of treatment for a wide range of acute and chronic conditions, using low intensity laser to promote healing within the cells.
Our clinics are equipped with Theralase, a super-pulsed, cold laser machine, which penetrated up to 10 cm (4 inches) below the skin surface, healing tissue faster than any other cold laser on the market. This form of treatment is non-invasive and has a wide range of applications such as tissue and wound healing, treating musculoskeletal conditions and acupuncture treatments.
Rather than destroying tissue, as with surgical (or hot) lasers, Theralase uses low intensity laser light energy to stimulate cells through a number of known cellular pathways in order to encourage tissue healing. This form of treatment is highly effective, drug free, non toxic, non invasive, very safe, easy to apply and painless.
Injury, post-operative and fracture rehabilitation
In Activa clinics we treat injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents and falls, sports injuries, work related injuries, acute injuries, chronic conditions, post-operative limitations and post-fracture limitations.
Our experienced team of health care providers realizes that each patient’s needs are unique. Therefore, a comprehensive physical and functional assessment is performed for each patient. Based on the results of the assessment, a treatment program is custom designed for the patient to treat injury, accelerate recovery and restore function, mobility and strength.
Our services include:
· Massage therapy
· Laser therapy
· Electrical modalities
· Spinal traction
· Custom exercise programs
· Specialist consultation
Spinal Traction uses specialized equipment to apply constant or intermittent pulling force to the spine. Traction stretches muscles and ligaments, increases the space between the vertebrae, relieves pressure on intervertebral discs, nerve roots and compressed nerves, helps muscles relax and reduces muscle spasms. Traction should not cause pain although mild soreness may be felt the next day.
