You are only in therapy for a short time. Therefore it is imperative that we give you the knowledge and tools for treating and managing your condition long term. From our constant use of computer technology, anatomical models, and to our white boards for illustration purposes you can be sure that you will both understand your condition and also be able to apply effective management and treatment for ensuring carryover to your home program.
The Neck and Back Pain Program
Focuses on individual, evidence-based, manual (hands-on) therapy directed at joint and soft tissue structures. This program incorporates Scientific Therapeutic Exercise Progressions (STEP) which target specific small muscles and allow for increased stability and tissue healing.
Post-Operative Rehabilitation Programs
Are specific to the surgery and administered under the referring physician’s guidance. All are directed at restoring pain-free movement, function and optimized return to activity. Education on the specific surgery and anatomy is paramount, as is understanding healing guidelines for both the protective phase and the return to activity phase of rehabilitation.
The Headache Program
Is directed at the underlying cause of the headaches due to tension, upper neck dysfunction, and postural problems. A comprehensive, evidence-based approach is taken, and multiple treatment modalities are ultimately useful in alleviating symptoms.
General Conditioning Programs
Are directed at improving function after a medical event (surgery, cancer treatment, and specific disease related conditions). These programs focus on optimizing function through monitored exercise training. Cardiovascular function and patient mobility, for a required job or activity of daily living, are primary focus areas.
Sports Injury Program
Focuses on joint and soft tissue pathology and the underlying bio-mechanical deficits that may be contributing to continued irritation. Provision therapists actively participate and compete in a multitude of sports, as this is one of their personal passions.
Cancer Rehabilitation and Lymphedema Management
The Cancer Rehabilitation and Lymphedema (CRL) program is designed to address and minimize secondary physical complications associated with many cancer diagnoses. Often, cancer patients face a variety of physical impairments during or after cancer treatment, such as: range of motion deficits, generalized weakness, cancer-related fatigue, lymphedema, joint arthralgia, and osteoporosis. Research suggests that cancer survivors benefit from: physical activity, pro-active risk reduction practices and earlier lymphedema intervention.
Dry Needling Program
Dry needling can be used for a variety of musculoskeletal problems. Here are a few examples:
• neck/back/shoulder pain
• tennis elbow
• carpal tunnel
• golfer’s elbow
• tension headaches and migraines
• jaw pain
• muscle strains
• muscle tightness/spasms
• tension-type headaches
• whiplash associated disorders
• complex regional pain syndrome
• Hip and knee pain or arthritis
• Overuse injuries
