Knee Injury, Custom Knee Brace You’ve fallen or slipped and fallen on your knee. You’ve had a knee injury! Maybe you felt or heard a snap or maybe it just swelled up after the injury. If you heard a large snapping sound when you fell, its quite possible that you have done some damage to the cartilage in your knee. Possible damage can include the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL), Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL), or either the Medial Collateral Ligament/ Lateral Collateral Ligament. Other possibilities include the medial or lateral meniscus. No matter what, your knee will likely hurt and swell up. Swelling is a normal response to an injury to your knee. In general, the more swelling, the more internal damage that exists. The good news is that most knees can get better conservatively with proper physiotherapy care. The most important part of treatment is to make sure that there…

Craniosacral & Integrative Manual Therapy Craniosacral & Integrative Manual therapy is a gentle non-invasive hands-on approach to assessment and treatment that release tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve total body health and performance. Also called CST or cranial osteopathy, it was developed by an American osteopathic physician almost 100 years ago. The craniosacral rhythm of approximately 6 to 12 cycles per minute is understood as a response to the formation and re-absorption of the cerebrospinal fluid and the fluctuations within the spinal cord and brain environ. The subtle movement extends out through the entire body in response to the fluid pressure changes around the central nervous system. A craniosacral & Integrative Manual therapist is able to detect disturbances in the craniosacral rhythm and thus identify areas of dysfunction and help to correct them by working on the cranial, sutural membranes and other soft tissue…

Back Pain- do you need surgery? Back pain is one of the most common injuries that we see at our office! Most pain medications barely touch the pain- they just take the edge off and knock you out. The good news is that back pain is  an injury that can be treated conservatively by a skilled physiotherapist! There are several different sources of back pain with the most common being disc pain due to a disc bulge or herniation. The source of the pain is often simple to diagnose. Assessment can be completed quickly in one visit and treatment can start the same day. In my experience, more than 75% of patients are fast responders meaning that their symptoms can begin to lessen very quickly after the first visit. The trick to shutting off back pain is to identify the location and angle of the disc injury.  Very simple stretching…
