Injury Rehab

Injury rehabilitation is one of the most common reasons people seek physiotherapy treatments. Proper rehabilitation following an injury is crucial to healing and regaining function.

Craniosacral Therapy for TMJ

One of the hardest working joints in the body, the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the hinge between your jaw and skull, and is critical for speaking, chewing, yawning and making facial expressions.

Unfortunately, many of us suffer from temporomandibular disorders (TMD) which can cause pain and make it difficult for us to open and close our mouths. People can develop TMJ problems for many different reasons, including jaw injuries (from a direct blow or a car accident), arthritis, teeth grinding at night, and stress. Problems with the joint can come on very quickly or develop over time, as well.

Swimming for Injury Recovery

Exercising in water can help people recover from a variety of injuries.

Swimming isn’t just a way to cool off in the summer heat: time in the pool can also relieve pain and improve recovery from a wide range of injuries, including knee and back pain and can help even after you’ve had surgery.

Research shows that swimming and aquatic exercise can help people with injuries rebuild strength, increase range of motion, improve cardiovascular fitness, and more. Here’s what you need to know before you dive in.
