Massage
Therapy

MASSAGE THERAPY

If you need relaxation, to reduce muscle tension or to decrease chronic pain, massage can increase your physical and emotional wellbeing on top of contributing to your overall quality of life. (Ontario Massage Therapy Association www.omta.com) Massage therapy is beneficial to people of all ages. When one receives a massage, their muscular flexibility increases and with the associated relaxation, their stress level decreases.

The most benefits are obtained with ill or injured clients suffering from acute to chronic conditions. Physiologically, we can see a decrease in swelling and inflammation, following a trauma but also an improved irrigation of tissues, which can alter the cycle of pain. Psychologically, massage can help depression as well as anxiety and by decreasing stress, can help decrease blood pressure.

Simply put, massage can decrease and manage pain coming from several sources and pathologies. For example, the following conditions can be treated by a massage therapist: Back and neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, dislocations, fractures, sprains, strains, headaches, post-surgery, muscular tension and spasms, sports injuries, tendinopathies, fibromyalgia, arthritis, pregnancy and whiplash.

SHOCKWAVE

RSWT is a mechanical energetic shockwave that is used to initiate an inflammation –like condition ( pro–inflammation) in the tissue that is being treated. This stimulation promotes physiological changes to the tissue and triggers healing, reparative and regenerative processes. It accelerates tissue repair and cell growth , analgesia and mobility restoration.

Supported by the research, it is effectively used to treat plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, patellar tendinopathy, lateral elbow tendinopathy and calcified tendinitis of the shoulder. Other conditions can be treated but the results can be varied.

Each treatment lasts 30 minutes per session . The shockwave itself is about 5-10 minutes. You will get education and exercises to combine with the treatment. You will need approximately 3-5 sessions.

PELVIC FLOOR
PHYSIOTHERAPY

PELVIC FLOOR PHYSIOTHERAPY

Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a branch of physical therapy that focuses on the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues of the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor consists of is a group of muscles and tissues that form a sling or hammock at the base of the pelvis, supporting the pelvic organs, including the bladder, uteruss (in females), and rectum.

Here’s a more detailed description of pelvic floor physiotherapy:

Assessment: Pelvic floor physiotherapists begin by conducting a thorough assessment of a patient’s pelvic floor function. This may involve discussing the patient’s medical history, symptoms, and any relevant lifestyle factors. The physical examination may include an internal assessment of the pelvic floor muscles (vaginally or rectally) to evaluate strength, tone, flexibility, and coordination.

Education: Pelvic floor physiotherapists educate patients about the anatomy and function of the pelvic floor. They may explain how various factors such as posture, breathing, and muscle tension can impact pelvic floor health. Education is a crucial component of treatment, helping patients understand their condition and empowering them to actively participate in their recovery.

Treatment Planning: Based on the assessment findings, the pelvic floor physiotherapist develops an individualized treatment plan. This plan may include a combination of exercises, manual therapy techniques, and lifestyle modifications.

Pelvic Floor Exercises: Specific exercises are prescribed to target and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. These exercises may involve learning how to contract and relax the muscles effectively. Mobility, flexibility, strength and breathing exercises can be prescribed depending on one’s needs.

Manual Therapy: Pelvic floor physiotherapists may use hands-on techniques to address muscle imbalances, tender points, and areas of tension within the pelvic floor muscles. Manual therapy can help improve blood flow, reduce pain, and enhance overall muscle function.

Behavioral and Lifestyle Strategies: Pelvic floor physiotherapists may provide guidance on behavioral and lifestyle modifications that can support pelvic floor health. This may include recommendations for optimal bowel and bladder habits, posture adjustments, and strategies to manage stress and tension.

Treatment of Specific Conditions: Pelvic floor physiotherapy is often used to address various pelvic floor conditions, including pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and sexual dysfunction.

Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a conservative and non-invasive approach to managing pelvic floor dysfunction. It is suitable for both men and women and can be beneficial at various stages of life, including during pregnancy and postpartum, as well as for individuals dealing with pelvic floor issues related to aging or specific medical conditions.

Physio Sport Plus is offering pelvic floor physiotherapy to patients with incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.
