Kinesio Tape is a technique that can be combined with other therapies including acupuncture, Active Release, and electrical modalities. The tape can be worn for extended periods of time with continued therapeutic benefit between clinical visits. Kinesio Taping can relax overused muscles or facilitate inhibited muscles in order to restore muscle balance or exert postural influence. It also provides proprioceptive correction by signalling to the brain, via skin receptors, information about normal tension on target tissues, and can offer dynamic stability to target tissues.

Our Calgary chiropractors and physiotherapist are trained in several techniques that help with sciatica treatment. Active Release, Graston, IMS, adjusting, and rehab are all important, depending on the cause of your sciatica. Sciatic pain occurs when something compresses the sciatic nerve, which sends pain down one or both legs. There are three different “types” of sciatica that require slightly different sciatica treatments. Autumn Harvest Produce Versus Pumpkin-Spiced Treats. As the weather turns cooler and the leaves begin to fall, many people indulge in all sorts of seasonal pumpkin-spiced drinks and treats.

While some of these goodies do contain real pumpkin, a great source of vitamins A and C, most rely on nutrient-devoid sugary syrups to imitate the taste. Why not look beyond sugary pumpkin-spiced fare and enjoy other healthy, economical, and easy to prepare autumn harvest produce instead?

Chiropractic care and workplace injuries. Chiropractic care could help reduce employee time out of workplace after an injury.

A study published in the Journal of Occupational Rehabilitation shows that seeking chiropractic care first after a workplace injury can reduce the time spent out of work. The Ontario-based study analyzed over 5,500 injured workers and found that, when a chiropractor was sought as the first healthcare provider for back pain, the length of workers’ compensation was drastically lower. According to Dr. Darrell J Wade, CEO of Newfoundland and Labrador Chiropractic Association, a majority of workplace injuries involve joints and muscles, therefore, seeking chiropractic treatment initially makes the most sense. Physiotherapy Can Help Treat Headaches.

Can physiotherapy cure headaches? An article by Brendon Samson suggests that, as headaches are primarily a sign of upper neck region dysfunction, physiotherapy could be an alternative to medicated control of headaches. Of the three primary types of headaches, tension-type, migraine and cervicogenic, physiotherapy has shown the most results when treating cervicogenic. Some signs of cervicogenic headaches include one-sided pain that is worsened by neck movements and located at the base of the skull.

If you are unsure about the type of headaches you experience, a physiotherapist can perform specific tests to differentiate a migraine from a headache. If you fit into this category or are still unsure of the cause of your headaches, why not seek a physiotherapy consultation to find out if there is a non-medicated cure or control for your pain!
