Extended Services at Carling Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic
In addition to chiropractic services, we also offer massage therapy and orthotics, and we have a registered holistic nutritionist on staff at our Carling Avenue office.
Massage therapy uses a variety of hands on treatment techniques to affect the superficial and deep layers of muscle and connective tissue. It is very effective in treatment of both acute and chronic health conditions. Massage therapy also helps your body to relax by releasing the tension your body accumulates from life’s many stresses.
Or massage therapist will perform a full assessment of the tissues and joints of the body. Then a treatment plan will be provided that is best suited to reduce any physical dysfunction that restricts your ability to enjoy your daily activities, and promotes your body’s natural ability to heal. Massage therapy affects all areas of the body from muscles, joints, and connective tissue, to circulatory and nervous systems. Using massage therapy on a regular basis helps to prevent injuries and improves your health.
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your ankles, knees or hip joints, the direct cause may be a function of your feet. Careful examination of your feet and a gait assessment can help us to assess the problem and to build custom orthotics to correct foot faults and improve body mechanics.
It is important to understand how your feet have direct impact on the rest of your body and support you with each step. A small abnormality in foot function can have a large impact on joints higher up in the body, causing pain and discomfort. When you are running, the pressure on your feet can be three or four times your body weight. Even walking can produce more pressure than the sum of your body weight. The average person takes 8.000 to 10,000 steps a day. Women have four times as many foot problems as men because they have a long history or wearing high heels and/or pointy shoes.
