Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an important component of Traditional Chinese medicine. TCM Acupuncture uses the careful insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific points of the body that regulate the flow of energy. Relatively painless, it often results in sensations of heaviness, warmth or tingling in the area of insertion as the flow of energy increases. The correct balance of energy throughout the body can help relieve many symptoms such as musculoskeletal pain, digestive disorders, sleep, emotional imbalances, stress and headaches, pregnancy and gynecological issues among others.

Acupuncture points stimulate the central nervous system which releases endorphins, which are our bodies’ natural pain-relieving hormones, into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These changes stimulate the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being.

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is an effective treatment alone or in combination with your Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, Naturopathic, or Massage treatments to treat joint pain, headaches, muscle pain, inflammation or swelling, nerve pain and emotional/mental distress. The effect of Acupuncture will depend on the nature or cause of your injury or condition.

Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine focuses on the use of natural therapies to support and stimulate the healing processes in the body. It is guided by a unique set of principles that recognize the body's innate healing capacity, emphasize disease prevention and encourage individual responsibility to obtain optimal health. Some of the goals of naturopathic medicine are to treat the whole person through individualized treatment, and to teach the principles of healthy living and preventive medicine. This can be done through clinical nutrition and counseling, homeopathy, lab tests, herbal medicine, acupuncture and clinical exercise.

Naturopathic Doctors are trained as primary care providers who diagnose, treat and manage patient care with acute and chronic conditions, while addressing disease and dysfunction at the level of body, mind and spirit. They concentrate on whole-patient wellness through health promotion and disease prevention, attempting to find the underlying cause of the patient’s condition, rather than the symptoms. They provide individualized, evidence-informed therapies that balance the least harmful and most effective approaches to help facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health.

Our Naturopathic Doctor is a highly trained professional who has met comprehensive standards in order to practice and will offer a complete family practice and thus sees a full range of conditions at Momentum SportMed and Wellness.

Osteopath

The philosophy behind osteopathic medicine is the whole body must function together for optimal health. If one part of the body is compromised with an injury, then the rest of the body must adapt and compensate for this, eventually leading to inflammation, pain, stiffness and other health conditions. Our osteopathic manual practitioner uses non-invasive manual therapies that focus on achieving total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework, which includes the joints, muscles and spine as well as the body's nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems.

Prevention is the basis of the Osteopathic approach. The practitioner’s goal is to treat the cause of the dysfunction as soon as it has been detected. If left untreated, such dysfunctions will manifest themselves in the form of functional impediments, weakened defense systems, postural imbalances and pain. The methods used by the Osteopath to treat restrictions include osteoarticular adjustments, visceral osteopathy, cranial osteopathy and normalization of myofascial tension.

Individuals of any age with complaints of pain, numbness, weakness, stiffness or tightness may benefit from Osteopathic treatment. These symptoms may be a result of injury, accident, repetitive strains, under-use or misuse, degenerative or arthritic changes, pregnancy and childbirth or following surgery or dental work.

Custom Bracing and Orthotics

Custom bracing are an effective way to both stabilize and protect an injury, while allowing a return to regular everyday activities or to sport. Custom bracing can be used for a variety of conditions that may cause pain or limit your function. Whether it be a ligament injury, post-surgery, or osteoarthritis, bracing is designed to restore movement, support recovery, decrease pain and optimize performance.

We offer a wide range of custom bracing options for the upper and lower body that are designed to treat conditions such as tennis/golfer’s elbow, carpal tunnel, patella femoral conditions, ACL, MCL and ankle injuries to name a few.

A custom made orthotic is a prescribed corrective removable insole that is placed in the shoes to hold the foot in the proper position to allow the joints, muscles and ligaments of your feet to function closer to their normal limits. This allows the feet to gain biomechanical advantage and move the foot and lower leg more efficiently, therefore eliminating foot and lower leg pain and ailments, e.g. heel spur syndrome, bunions, calluses, shin splints, runner’s knee, etc.

For best results, wearing a custom braces/support is often recommended as part of an overall treatment plan with one of our Therapist.
