Athletic Therapy Calgary
The scope of practice of a certified athletic therapist includes the assessment, prevention, immediate care, and reconditioning of musculoskeletal injuries. Prevention includes musculoskeletal and postural evaluation, equipment selection, fitting and repair, warm-up, conditioning programs, prophylactic taping, and adapting to the activity, environment and facilities.
Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a complete medical system in itself, and is also an excellent compliment to almost any other treatment, including Western pharmaceuticals, surgery, herbal therapies, massage, athletic therapy, chiropractic and physiotherapy. Techniques used in Chinese Medicine include herbal formulas, needle acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, heat lamps, and meridian massage.
The practice of Massage Therapy is the assessment and treatment of the soft tissue and joints of the body with the intent of producing a therapeutic outcome. Massage Therapists also promote rehabilitation and/or prevent or reduce physical dysfunction and pain of soft tissues and joints as well as maintain and enhance health.
The object of Osteopathic Manual Therapy is to re-establish proper body functions by treating causes of pain and dysfunction. Osteopathic Manual Therapy is a patient-centered approach to health. Skilled palpation and a detailed knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics guide the osteopath to assess and restore balance within and between all the systems of the body; musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological, cranial and visceral.
