- Can be used to prevent injuries or re-injuries
- Can be used to provide support during rehabilitation
- Can improve athletic performance by reducing the risk of injury
- Can be used to manage chronic conditions, such as arthritis
- Can be used in combination with other therapies to enhance their effects.
A technique used to provide support and stability to joints and muscles during physical activity. It involves applying adhesive tape to the affected area to improve proprioception and reduce the risk of injury.
Taping is the process of applying tape (dynamic tape) directly to the skin in order to maintain a stable position of bones and muscles during athletic activity or movements.
In the taping process, dynamic tapes are used, which are specially designed to work mechanically, to alter movement patterns while absorbing load & re-injecting that energy into movement. Taping is used to treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal complaints including, but not limited to, pain, function, joint instability, and edema.
Some common conditions include plantar fasciitis, patellofemoral pain syndrome, patella fat pad impingement, lateral ankle sprains, sciatica, and overuse conditions.
- Improved joint stability
- Reduced muscle fatigue
- Reduced pain and discomfort
- Increased proprioception (sense of body position and movement)
- Increased confidence during physical activity
POSTURE / ERGONOMIC TRAINING
Postural / Ergonomic Training involves educating patients on proper posture and ergonomics to help prevent future injuries and pain. Ergonomics is the science of designing a workplace to fit your body. Therefore, office ergonomics is crucial for the occupational health of employees. Workplace injuries, particularly musculoskeletal injuries due to poor posture, can be avoided with ergonomic training.
Its benefits include reduced risk of work-related injuries and illness, higher productivity, improved health, improved mental insight, better product quality, decreased pain, happy employees, improved employee engagement and a better safety culture.
Physiotherapy evaluates your body mechanism, mobility and strength to determine exactly what needs to be done. Full body assessment and posture analysis, joint mobilization, dry needling and exercises are some of the techniques we use for ergonomic correction.
Post-Surgery Physiotherapy / Rehabilitation
Post-surgery rehabilitation is the crucial process of re – establishing muscle strength, joint motion, full joint movement and restore full body strength and functionality, through physiotherapy sessions and exercises.
Physiotherapy Rehabilitation is necessary for a variety of surgical procedures like rotator cuff surgery, knee/hip replacement, ligament, ACL repair, fracture, joint repair surgeries. All types of surgery are presented with a number of post operative consequences which can help with physiotherapy.
Benefits of post-surgical rehab include-
- Effective management of your pain.
- Help you return to activities of daily living.
- Strengthening weak muscles.
- Stretching of muscles that may have become stiff.
- To help get you back to the level you were previously.
- Improve your posture.
- Regain your independence.
- Reduce any anxiety that you may have and regain your confidence.
- Mobilization exercises to improve circulation and range of movement.
- Advise on effective positioning to increase comfort.
