-Physiotherapy is a health profession effective in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of acute and chronic conditions, the prevention of injury and disability and promoting health and well-being. Physiotherapists provide work with patients using therapeutic exercises, manual therapy and other modalities to promote independence and self-management in the rehab and prevention of injuries. At ESMC, our physiotherapy focuses on musculoskeletal injuries, chronic pain, chronic conditions and pre/post-operative care.
-Athletic therapists (AT’s) focus on the assessment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries. Many AT’s also work directly with sports teams/events to provide immediate injury assessment and acute or emergency care for participants. AT’s are skilled in returning athletes to competition and maximizing their performance as soon as possible after an injury. These same skills also make AT’s effective in treating injuries sustained by everyday people. AT’s use a variety of modalities to not only assess and treat injuries, but also minimize the potential for injury and help with reconditioning.
-This form of acupuncture is a precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique which uses acupuncture needles with or without stimulation to modulate abnormal activity of the nervous system for pain syndromes and functional problems. Contemporary medical acupuncture treatment can result in temporary relief, disappearance or resolution of symptoms and dysfunction, especially when dysregulation of the nervous system was the underlying pathophysiological mechanism.
-Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body, including muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and joints. Massage therapy is clinically-oriented and helps alleviate the discomfort associated with every day stress, muscle overuse and chronic pain conditions. Massage therapy can be beneficial for your overall health by reducing pain and muscle tension, or also part of a preventive care program.
