Assessment and treatment of injury or imbalance through the application of manual therapy, ultrasound, electrotherapy, and exercise prescription to reduce pain, improve tissue quality, and restore function.
Using very gentle touch to release deep tensions in the body to relieve pain, stress, dysfunction, and to improve whole body health, immune function, and promote overall wellbeing.
Neural manipulation identifies and releases restrictions in the skull, brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves to achieve balance in the body and restore function from global restriction patterns. Through facilitating nerve conduction and restoring blood supply, communication in the body is re-established and the body is then able to adapt and restore itself to optimal health. Neural manipulation is excellent for post-trauma and whiplash injury, neck pain, low back pain and sciatica, headaches, TMJ, joint pain, thoracic outlet syndrome, brachial plexus injury, digestive disorders, and many other pain disorders.
Medical acupuncture is the insertion of single-use, sterile, disposable needles into the underlying muscles and nerve tissues for pain and inflammation relief, circulation, and nerve stimulation. Medical acupuncture combines both meridian and muscle trigger points and is an excellent adjunct to most treatment plans. At Bodhi Holistic Physiotherapy it is billed under “physiotherapy” and cannot be billed as “acupuncture”.
The fascia is a continuous tissue in our body that surrounds our bones, joints, and muscles creating long lines of both movement and restriction. When restricted it can have a global effect on our body creating lines of pull and altering our movement patterns. Through evaluation of varying positions, these restrictions can be identified and released through manual therapy and maintained with specific, long duration stretching.
