Physical therapy is a health care profession primarily concerned with the remediation of impairments and disabilities and the promotion of mobility, functional ability, quality of life and movement potential through examination, evaluation, diagnosis and physical intervention.
Physiotherapists play a significant role in health promotion and treatment of injury and disease. They combine their in-depth knowledge of the body and how it works with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability.
The physiotherapists at Freeflo Physiotherapy and sports injuries center have advanced training in manual therapy, exercise prescription, taping/bracing, acupuncture, neural mobilization, and electrotherapeutic modalities allowing them to identify and treat the underlying cause of your specific injury. At Freeflo our Physiotherapists provide direct patient care.
At Freeflo Physiotherapy acupuncture is a treatment technique used by our physiotherapists to treat many painful disorders including back pain, neck pain, rotator cuff injuries, golfers elbow, tennis elbow and headaches to name a few. It is used to reduce pain, inflammation and muscular tension related to various injuries.
With medical acupuncture a fine, sterile, disposable needle is inserted into specific points along a muscle, nerve, tendon and/or fascia to stimulate a physiological response that aids in our bodies’ natural recovery process.
Our Physiotherapists use acupuncture as an effective adjunct to physiotherapy.
Physiotherapists who are members of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Therapy (CAMT) have completed extensive post-graduate education in "manual therapy", allowing them to treat complex movement disorders of the extremities and spine.
Physiotherapists with manual therapy expertise (CAMT) use hands-on treatment to restore joint range of motion, muscle function, and neural mobility. Manual therapy techniques include joint mobilization/manipulation, myofascial release, and neural mobilization among others.
A comprehensive manual therapy approach also relies heavily on physiotherapists' prescription of complimentary exercise to maintain the gains made during treatment.
Integrated Dry Needling
Dry needling is a therapeutic intervention that consists of inserting an acupuncture needle into muscle tissue, without the injection of a solution (Dry Needle), for the purpose of treating muscle pain and dysfunction
The needle is inserted into a shortened muscle in order to help it relax, loosen and function better. The needle is directed toward tight bands that are often tender and referred to as ‘knots’. These “knots” are called trigger points and can feel ropey and are involved in many types of soft tissue pain. The goal is to elicit a twitch response within the muscle, which helps to release the tightness and relieve pain
At Freeflo Physiotherapy, the Integrated Dry Needling™ (IDN) approach is safely combined with other common physiotherapy treatments, when appropriate, based on the results of a comprehensive examination.
