Our injury therapist for sports at our HMC Sheridan College Mississauga, treat a wide range of patients. We treat students suffering from torn ligaments, to elder gym users suffering from sprains and strains.
How we diagnose an injury:
First, our trained physio-therapists checks out your injury. Then will review your x-rays or ultrasound results with you, to understand what you are dealing with and how severe the injury is. Torn ligaments have different treatments than pinched nerves do. Second, they will then put together appropriate treatment plans for you.
Now you may be wondering what methods and equipment we use to treat such injuries… 🤔
Methods of treatment we use:
Every injury is different, meaning each person will have different methods of treatment. Therefore, it is all dependent on your situation:
This works by using massage techniques. They release tension, relax muscles, and allow gentle healing of the body to work. It’s most used for people who ae recovering from sprains or strains; and are slowly working their way back into exercise motions.
Firstly, our trained therapist will relax your muscles. They do this by applying cream and medical rub to the affected area.
Secondly, the therapist will rub area, releasing all tension.
Thirdly, they will then allow you to rest in a hot temperature room to relax muscles further, and relax the mind.
In conclusion, this helps for a variety of health-related purposes. Those purposes include: to relieve pain, heal sports injuries, increase relaxation, reduce anxiety and depression, and help general wellness.
This works by stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities. Acupuncture points enter the central nervous system. This will then release chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. Therefore causing the body’s natural healing abilities to active. This will help improve your recovery.
Heating and Cooling Pads:
Heat therapy relaxes muscles and prevents stiffness. Heat and ice are used together in an alternating patterns. This works to reduce swelling and increase circulation to an area.
Firstly, the therapist will rub area gently with muscle relaxing cream.
Secondly, they will apply cold or warm compress and allow time for relaxation.
Finally, they will apply skin hydrating cream incase of any sensitive skin reactions. In conclusion, this will increase injury recovery time.
Bracing and Taping:
We use a specific type of therapy tape called “Kinesio Tape”. This tape limits movements of muscles and joints. Several layers of tape are rolled around the area to keep of pressure onto the muscles. Therefore, allowing the muscles to recover faster, as they are not being used as much in movements.
Our gym understands how mental and physical health are intertwined in many ways. We aim to help your mind, as much as your body. Therefore, we believe working on mental and physical health help you to become “The Real You”.
These type of therapies help mental tension and disorders. They aid in general wellness, but are geared towards helping people with anxiety and depression.
