Assessing the Injury
When you meet with your Nose Creek Physiotherapist, they will begin by looking for reduced mobility or stiffness in the joint. These joints, once identified, are mobilized and/or manipulated.
Correcting Muscle Imbalance
Your Nose Creek Physiotherapist corrects muscle imbalances in one of two ways:
- For weak muscles, appropriate exercises are prescribed to strengthen them to optimum levels.
- For tight muscles, your Physiotherapist will prescribe stretches to lengthen muscles to original length.
Your Nose Creek Physiotherapist will measure the mobility of key nerves that connect from your spinal cord to your muscles. Once they have identified where the nerve is being impinged, specific techniques will be applied to mobilize the nerve and restore normal mobility and function.
Muscle Stimulation Current
This therapy is used to reduce muscle atrophy after an injury has made it through the inflammatory phase of the healing process. It’s often applied to the muscles parallel to the spine, knee and rotator cuff muscles. The current reboots the nerve if it’s been pinched or inhibited which then signals the muscle to contract more efficiently.
