Shockwave therapy is a series of acoustic waves specifically applied to the area needing treatment. The high energy sound waves, created by highly compressed air, is transferred to the transmitter at the end of the applicator and further into the tissue. This type of treatment is used to accelerate tissue repair and cellular growth by initiating an inflammatory response. Shockwave can reduce healing times and reduce pain with certain specific conditions.
At Simply Physio P.C. we can appreciate that pregnancy and delivery can be both wonderful and, at times, a physically challenging experience. A woman's body undergoes remarkable changes in posture and breathing patterns during pregnancy, creating stress on the muscles, nervous system, ligaments, organs and joints. It's essential to listen to and take care of your body during and after your pregnancy. Our physiotherapists can help you identify affected body structures (i.e. diastasis rectus abdominis, pelvic girdle/sacroiliac joint pain), restore optimal movement patterns. We help develop strategies to improve function as your body is changing, while also helping to prevent the development of non-optimal movement patterns that could contribute to aches and pains in the future.
Specific taping techniques can alter the way we move, provide support to joints and tissues, unload painful structures, and help promote optimal movement patterns. In addition to therapeutic taping, our physiotherapists also provide preventative taping for sport. Let Simply Physio P.C. show you how something as simple as tape can enhance your movement and performance.
To compliment the other forms of treatment that we offer, our physiotherapists can provide therapeutic modalities such as ultrasounds, Interferential Current (IFC), Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) and Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation.
