Their treatment skills rather than just looking at the area of pain or restriction, our therapists expand their assessment to looking at the whole body to find where the root cause of the problem may be.
IMS is a needling technique that helps to reduce adverse tone in tight muscle bands or trigger points that contribute to pain and dysfunction. By targeting localized areas of tightness with the needle insertion a reflex relaxation is produced in the muscle. This helps to relieve pressure on tender joint structures and in the muscles themselves which in turn influences pain and inflammation produced by the adverse tightness. The points are chosen by the certified therapist by conducting a neuropathic assessment. It is a dry needling treatment, meaning that nothing is injected. The needles used are similar to those of acupuncture. The average number of sessions required to create a sustained benefit is 7 to 8 sessions at a frequency of once a week. You can include IMS in Orthopedic and Sports Physiotherapy Edmonton for improvement during recovery.
Manual Therapy involves the physiotherapist’s use of his or her hands to mobilize the joints of the spine and extremities, create movement in nerve tissue or facilitate the activation, flexibility, and normal tone of muscle. Several different techniques can be used to restore the normal range of motion and regain control of the muscle. This allows each region of the body to move efficiently, and safely.
Taping and bracing injured joints and body parts protects those areas from further re-injury and allows you for an earlier return to activity. It also can supply support to an area, which will allow muscles, which have tightened or sprained to relax thus facilitating an earlier return of motion.

Spinal manipulation is a therapeutic intervention performed on spinal articulations which are synovial joints. It’s designed to relieve pressure on spinal joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function. It’s often used to treat back, neck, peripheral joints, and headache pain.
In spinal manipulation, the practitioner uses their hands to apply a controlled, sudden force to a specific joint. Patients often hear popping noises, like when you crack your knuckles(the same science applies here as-well).
The Neurophysiological Effects of spinal manipulation have been shown to include:
– Temporary relief of musculoskeletal pain
– Shortened time to recover from acute back pain
– Temporary increase in passive range of motion
– Physiological effects on the central nervous system (specifically the sympathetic nervous system)
– Altered sensorimotor integration
– No alteration of the position of the sacroiliac joint
Common side effects of spinal manipulation are characterized as mild to moderate and may include: local discomfort, headache, tiredness, or radiating discomfort
