Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy Treatments
Many people suffer from both chronic discomfort and acute foot pain as a result of poor foot function, repetitive use injuries or trauma. At the Niagara Foot Care Clinic we offer our patients a variety of therapeutic treatment options to address their individual needs and concerns. Moreover, as registered Chiropodists/Foot Specialists our Clinicians hold prescription privileges enabling them to manage more severe pain with oral or injectable medications.
With foot therapy we focus on bone and joint realignment, and strengthening and stabilizing of affected muscle groups. Moreover, with Active Release Therapy techniques, therapeutic ultrasound and laser the inflammation and pain level can be managed and blood flow to the injured site improved. By managing both the biomechanical function of your foot and the injured anatomy, your foot pain can be affectively treated.
Active Release Therapy
ART is a patented, soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Plantar fasciitis (heel pain), Achilles tendonitis, metatarsalgia (pain on ball of foot), shin splints, bursitis, arch pain, Morton's neuroma (pinched nerves) are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved effectively and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles or foot posture.
Low Level Laser Treatment
Theralase laser therapy is safe, effective and painless, with results which are often immediate with no side effects.
Laser reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation to provide enhanced joint mobility. Theralase safely and effectively stimulates deep tissue regeneration and relieves pain and inflammation.
The safety and effectiveness of cold laser therapy lies in its ability to trigger the body to heal itself. Penetrating into targeted tissue, laser light stimulates mitochondria in target cells to produce additional ATP, which fuels cell repair and regeneration.
