Physiotherapists are highly trained clinicians who diagnose and treat a variety of injuries to help reduce pain. Our physiotherapists use a wide variety of treatment techniques, including manual therapy, exercise therapy, movement analysis, Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS), as well as acupuncture.
Chiropractic is a health profession specializing in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal conditions. Treatment methods are natural and conservative to help the body regain balance and function. Our chiropractors not only look at the symptoms you are experiencing, but will work hard to address the cause.
During your visit, the chiropractor will take a thorough and comprehensive history and physical exam. We utilize range of motion, orthopedic and neurological tests, palpation, and functional movement assessments to help diagnose your complaint. We will work with you to identify the dysfunctional tissues and pathology, and provide you with a treatment plan. If you require imaging studies such as X-ray, MRI, or CT, we will communicate with your family doctor so you get the studies you need.
At Trifecta Rehab, we assess whole body movement patterns because the human body is a well-orchestrated system and no parts work in isolation. We provide joint manipulation and soft tissue therapies, educate patients about pain and their body, and give specific exercise and advice to support recovery and prevent injury in the future.
Our massage therapists are fully equipped to evaluate individual health needs and to provide both active and passive manual care. The Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) will not only treat your symptoms, they will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan in order to target your needs. Our therapists utilize a variety of techniques that are best suited for the individual.
Our RMTs are registered with the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia and are also members of the Massage Therapists Association of British Columbia.
Dry needling and IMS are techniques used by certified therapists to assist with decreasing muscular and/or neuropathic pain. The goal of treatment is to create a neurophysiological change in muscles that may be compressing neighbouring tissues and structures such as nerves, tendons and joints.
IMS involves the use of very thin myofilament needles that are inserted into a muscle to create this neurophysiological change or “reset”. When the muscle is stimulated, the client will experience a twitch response. This twitch response is often described as a quick pulse, or spasm in the muscle.
Is IMS painful?
Although IMS is reported as mildly “uncomfortable”, many clients do not report is as painful. After treatment, the client commonly experiences soreness, which is best compared to post-exercise soreness that usually dissipates throughout the day or over 24-48 hours.
Is there an additional charge for IMS?
No. At our clinic, the cost of needles is included in your usual physiotherapy fees.
How many treatments do I need for relief?
Because each client has unique needs, an exact amount tends to vary. Most clients experience significant relief within 6-12 treatments, but many do note relief after 2-3 as well
