ART- Active Release Technique

Did you know that Dr. Nimchuk is the only certified active release technique provider in Kelowna? He has been a certified full body ART provider for over ten years. How does active release technique work?

1. Diagnosis- ART providers use their hands to identify abrasions in tissue texture, tension and movement.
2. Treatment- ART protocols combine specific touch with specific patient movements to restore function and relieve pain.
3. Relief- there are no known side effects of ART and most conditions, such as strains, sprains and musculoskeletal disorders, are resolved in five or fewer treatments.

⚡️What is the deal with shockwave therapy?⚡️

Shockwave Therapy has been found to be MORE effective than non-operative corticosteroid treatment and home training for both short term relief and long term in lower limb tendinopathies.

What is shockwave therapy?⚡️

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive therapy that allows for a reduction of pain and inflammation through the use of radial pressure waves. This treatment increases blood flow to the treated area, aids in the formation of new blood vessels, and triggers a natural healing response in the body to promote healing.

It is considered a viable option when other non-operative treatments have failed before considering surgical intervention. It is especially effective for the treatment of chronic or lingering injuries.

What kind of injuries can it treat?
◽️greater trochanteric pain syndrome
◽️patellar tendinopathy
◽️achilles tendinopathy
◽️bursitis
◽️rotator cuff injuries
◽️tennis elbow
◽️shin splints
◽️overuse injuries
◽️and MORE!

Shockwave can improve function, reduce pain, and facilitate healing in stubborn lingering injuries. What are you waiting for? Book a consultation with one of our highly trained and talented chiropractors today!

👣 Take a moment and reflect on all of the things your feet allow you to do... now take another moment and think about the things you do to take care of them, strengthen them, let them breathe and stretch out. Do things seem a little off balance?⁣

👣 Our feet are a hugely important aspect of our lives - they are sensors that act to help us adapt to our environment, they allow us to adventure and explore, they enable us to do our jobs, see and interact with people we love, and so SO much more. ⁣

👣 We need to be treating our feet better. Our toes should be the widest part of our foot, not the ball of the foot. They should be protected by flat, wide, flexible shoes - not rigid clouds that create a thick barrier from our environment. They are strong and powerful, and shouldn’t be weakened and disabled by overly cushioned or supportive shoes. ⁣

👣Spend more time barefoot. In your home, at your desk, outside. Everywhere. Take care of your feet - it will drastically improve the quality of your life. ⁣

Don’t know where to start? Come see our foot-pert Sara!

As with anything, have a plan of action is crucial to achieving your goals. The same principal applies to your health! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Acupuncture works best in a series of treatments - this usually looks like multiple treatments over a shorter period of time. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
As an acupuncturist, my goal is to ensure your optimal level of health. That means you are pain free, eating well, sleeping well, and feeling your best! Setting and sticking to a treatment plan can help you achieve your treatment goals. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
For acute situations, 2-3 treatments per week for 2 weeks is optimal. For more chronic cases, we extend this plan for 3-4 weeks. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Your health is important, take the time to plan and invest in yourself! ⁣

💥𝐒𝐇𝐈𝐍 𝐒𝐏𝐋𝐈𝐍𝐓𝐒💥⁣
A shin splint is a common overuse injury in runners occurring midway between your knee and ankle. For the majority of people this occurs when they are trying to do “too much, too fast” when increasing their training intensity. Kelsey knows this feeling all too well - she recently transitioned from daily spin classes to running 5-10k a day without skipping a beat!⁣

📌 Modify your activity or gradually build up your tolerance/intensity of walking or running ⁣
📌 Try modifying your gait (running stride) to make more of a flat or forefoot contact with the ground⁣
📌 Foam roll, stretch & strengthen your lower leg muscles so they are able to tolerate an intense workout regime ⁣
📌 K tape application to improve circulation & promote muscle relaxation ⁣
