At Advanced Physiotherapy in Nepean, our physiotherapists provide a wide range of treatments that can help treat a variety of conditions, including sports injuries, concussions, headaches, post-surgery and muscle pains. We offer full exercise and recovery programs, as well as alternative practices such as acupuncture and dry needling.
Your treatment is important to us, and we want to make sure you are involved in every step of it. You’ll receive detailed information on your condition and the therapy options available, all without the use of drugs and invasive procedures. Whether you’re treating a sports injury or a chronic condition, our therapy options will help to restore your mobility and strength, as well as relieve your pain in order to function at your highest level.
Acupuncture involves stimulating specific points on the body by inserting thin, sterilized needles for the purpose of relieving pain, reducing inflammation and improving function. It can also be helpful in relieving stress and improving energy which can positively impact your recovery.
Acupuncture is often used in conjunction with exercise or manual therapy in order to improve efficacy of treatment as well as provide longer lasting results. Here at Advanced Physiotherapy we have found acupuncture beneficial in treating musculoskeletal problems (neck and back pain, tendonitis, arthritis, muscle injuries), as well as headaches and migraines. We are pleased with the results and have numerous requests for this type of treatment. Please note that acupuncture is provided at no extra cost as it is part of your treatment session billed under Physiotherapy.
If you would like to know more about how acupuncture can be helpful for your particular injury we would be happy to discuss this with you.
Functional Dry Needling (FDN), also referred to as trigger point dry needling, is a treatment for muscle tightness, pain and spasm which commonly follows injuries and often accompanies the degenerative process. Muscles have typical referral patterns of pain which are associated with specific trigger points within the muscle.
Small, thin needles are inserted in the muscles at the trigger point causing the pain. The muscles would then contract and release, improving flexibility of the muscles and decreasing pain. Our physiotherapists typically use this in conjunction with exercise and/or manual therapy to achieve optimum results.
Sports injuries, chronic neck and back pain as well as myofascial pain, tension type headaches and tendonitis tend to respond well to this approach.
Please direct your questions to Rhonda Ricketts PT if you would like more information about dry needling and your injury.
Concussion rehab is an evidence-based personalized treatment for persistent concussion symptoms that includes cervical spine treatment, vestibular exercises and proprioception retraining. It also includes subsymptom exercise retraining in order to help patients return to their pre injury sports and activities of daily living. Should you have specific questions please leave your enquiries with Amy Marcantonio PT.
