General Discomfort

General discomfort can be referred to as any unpleasant sensation that you feel in your body. Symptoms can range from mild pain, tightness, aches, and tingling. Symptoms may indicate an underlying medical condition or movement dysfunction. Factors such as stress, poor posture, lack of physical activity, or nutrition deficiencies can also contribute to discomfort.

Early Prevention

Pain is how our body communicates that a structure is under stress. Using a proactive treatment approach ensures the wellbeing of our bodies and prevents compensations from getting worse.

How does physiotherapy help?

Resolves the root cause

During the assessment, your therapist will ask you questions about your lifestyle and conduct a physical assessment. They will provide you with a diagnosis and educate you on what is causing your discomfort. Your therapist will then provide treatments, prescribe exercises, and educate you on how to reverse your symptoms. 

What our therapists prioritize

By discovering the root cause of your discomfort, we create effective treatment plans that target the underlying cause of your discomfort and prevent recurrence.

Thorough assessment during early stages of discomfort is critical in preventing injuries from becoming debilitative.

Examples of some injuries that could be avoided with early detection are Sciatica and Plantar Fasciitis

Correcting muscle imbalances and optimizing movement patterns prevents overuse and keeps the body pain-free in the long-term.

Movement pattern conditioning: to ensure balanced movement in all muscles of the body.

Postural conditioning: prioritizing aligned posture decreases resting discomfort and allows for fluid movement.

Corrective exercises are designed to oppose compensations and relearn movement patterns that will help you move pain-free in the long term.

Stretching: to improve flexibility and reduce the tension of relevant muscles, joints, and fascia.

Strengthening: to improve the activation and stability of relevant muscles which can restore optimal function and help reduce the risk of future injuries.

To ensure joints and muscles are free of tension, and nerves do not get compressed. Our therapists may use some of the following techniques to improve your mobility:

Myofascial release: to reduce pain, tightness, and inflammation of the muscles, joints, nerves, and fascia of the affected areas.

Joint mobilization: to promote smooth joint movement and mobility of the spine, pelvis, hip, and other affected areas.

To equip you with the knowledge you need to continue healthy living.
