What is Dry Needling? (See Dry Needling page)

Dry Needling; also known as ‘Myofascial Trigger Point Dry Needling’ it is an effective therapy in treating muscular spasm and tension. When injury occurs from an acute trauma or repetitive use, inflammation will occur from the tissue damage. This tissue damage causes a protective tension state or contracture to guard against any further damage to occur; therefore causing cell fibrosis or scar tissue to develop. Scar tissue will limit a muscle or tissue from functioning at its full potential, which will also cause compression and irritation to nerves- such as those suffering from carpel tunnel syndrome. When performing Dry Needling a small needle is inserted into a painful knotted muscle causing a local twitch reflex, this response is therapeutic and diagnostic, decreasing muscle contraction and pain and improves tissue health and flexibility.

Physiotherapy for Seniors' Health

Are you at risk of a fall?

The senior’s health report from the Public Health Agency in Canada states that “Injuries in Canada are a serious public health concern. It is a leading cause of hospitalization for children, young adults and seniors, and it is a major cause of disability and death. Falls remain the leading cause of injury-related hospitalizations among Canadian seniors, and between 20% and 30% of seniors fall each year “. (Senior’s falls in Canada, second report. Public Health Agency.)

As you may be aware, with increasing age, you may have more difficulties with walking, moving and competing your daily activities. In addition to that, health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, or arthritis in the hips and knees can cause pain with standing and walking. All these factors contribute to your balance and increase your risk of falling.
