Chiropractic is a primary healthcare profession specializing in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of conditions related to the joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves of the body. With a minimum of 7 years of post-secondary education, chiropractors have over 4500 hours of academic and clinical training in courses such as anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, neurology, pathology, radiology and rehabilitation.

As experts of the musculoskeletal system, our chiropractors provide evidence-based care and effective treatment plans to help alleviate pain, improve function and enhance the quality of life. Our chiropractors take the time to develop individualized treatment plans which may consist of joint manipulations and mobilizations, soft tissue therapies, and active rehabilitation techniques that best suit you and your treatment goals. This may include:

Active Release Technique

ART®️ is a manual, hands-on therapy designed specifically to find scars in damaged tissue and release the adhesions that result. Adhesions are produced in acute injuries, repetitive injuries or simply when a muscle is under chronic tension and does not get enough oxygen (hypoxia). These adhesions act like tiny dabs of glue sticking to muscle fibres and between connective tissues, preventing the normal sliding movements that normally occur between healthy tissue. Adhesions limit muscle or joint movement and can create abnormal or painful motion. Adhesions to a nerve can cause numbness, tingling or radiating pain, as with carpal tunnel syndrome or the radiating leg pain of sciatica.

Instrumented Assisted Soft Tissue Management

IASTM is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
Originally developed by athletes, IASTM is an interdisciplinary treatment used by more than 18,000 clinicians worldwide — including physical and occupational therapists, hand therapists, chiropractors, and athletic trainers.

What To Expect

Your first chiropractic visit will begin with a comprehensive review of your health history. You and your chiropractor will discuss details of your general health as well as your chief complaint(s) bringing you into the clinic. Your chiropractor will ask questions to help determine what is going on in your body and how they can best support you.

The health history review will be followed by a physical exam. Your chiropractor will guide you through some postural assessment, ranges of motion, orthopaedic, neurological and functional tests as well as some muscle and joint palpation. At this point, your chiropractor will be able to deliver to you a diagnosis and determine the best plan of management for you going forward!

Active Rehabilitation Kinesiology Sessions

Kinesiologists are highly educated, health care professionals who are experts in body movement. They utilize evidence-based research to develop active rehabilitation programs for patients helping them to prevent and manage injury, chronic disease, and to reach optimal physical performance.
Kinesiologists provide assessment and treatment services for the rehabilitation of people suffering from physical injuries sustained at work, automobile collisions, sports, and other life activities. The primary service is active rehabilitation, which consists of the assessment of physical function followed by the implementation and progression of a specifically structured and individually tailored exercise program. The goal of the sessions is to enhance and promote the safe and dependable return to an individual’s regular life activities and regain full physical functioning. Kinesiologists are also able to design and conduct exercise programs for all age groups and fitness levels and strive to empower people to live an active and healthy lifestyle.

Registered Massage Therapy is the manual manipulation of the soft tissues of the body (muscle, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments). General techniques include applying fixed or movable pressures, holding, and/or initiating movement of or to the body. Massage is known to improve the circulation and flow of blood and lymph, reduce muscular tension or flaccidity, affect the nervous system through stimulation or sedation, and enhance tissue healing. Within massage therapy itself, there are several different modalities that address adhesions in the fascia surrounding and between layers of muscle, bone, tendons, ligaments and joint capsules. They include:

Deep Tissue

A slow and deep modality of massage that focuses on realigning the deep layers of muscle and connective tissue. This type of massage can be very beneficial for releasing chronic muscle tension.

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) and Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger points are highly irritable points that can refer pain locally or to other areas of the body. These techniques are a specialized form of deep tissue massage that utilizes static pressure to release these tender areas of strain in the muscle.

Myofascial Release

Fascia is a dense, tough tissue that surrounds and covers all of your muscles. Myofascial release involves applying prolonged pressure into the connective tissue with the goal of enabling the muscles to slide over each other effortlessly, eliminating pain and restoring proper mobility.

Joint Mobilization

Joint mobility can become limited due to injury, overuse, aging, and contracted muscles, leaving it harder to move efficiently and without pain. Joint mobilization is a passive massage technique performed by RMTs to reduce pain and restore normal range of motion in affected areas.

Muscle Energy Technique

This treatment utilizes the body’s nervous system through very gentle techniques. Muscle energy uses active muscle contractions to stretch and release restricted muscles helping to relieve chronic pain and tension.

Custom Orthotics

Feet provide the foundation for the entire body. Any deviation from a normal structure and/or function can result in not only foot pain but also knee, hip and back pain. This can contribute to conditions such as plantar fasciitis, shin splints, arthritis, iliotibial band syndrome, Achilles tendonitis, metatarsalgia and patellofemoral pain syndrome.

Fitting patients with custom orthotics can improve posture, restore normal biomechanics of the feet as well as maximize comfort, support and shock absorption. Our casting methods include foam and sock casting. Our lab technician then uses this cast to design orthotics for your specific requirement. Special adjustments can be made to assist the diabetic and arthritic patient, heel spurs, leg length inequalities, and bunions.
Momentum Health is proud to use the experts KINTEC for all their custom orthotics.
