We have the advanced healing power of a Theralase laser at Bloor Jane Physiotherapy. Laser treatments provide safe, effective and painless therapy that uses the body’s own natural system to promote cell regeneration and tissue healing. Utilizing the power of infrared laser light for treatment of acute or chronic pain conditions, the laser is absorbed into the body to begin to repair injured soft tissues. The benefits of laser therapy are to reduce swelling, to lay down new collagen cells and to reduce the formation of scar tissue.
Dry needling is a form of acupuncture which helps promote soft tissue healing. Dry needling uses very thin filament needles, to break down scar tissue and signal the body to restore normal muscle tone. This technique uses the body’s own natural systems to promote cell repair reducing swelling and pain.
Ultrasound is a method of stimulating the tissue beneath the skin's surface using very high frequency sound waves. In physiotherapy, a therapeutic ultrasound is a vibration of sound waves that are absorbed by ligaments, tendons and scar tissue.
Shockwave therapy is the newest of the technologies available at Bloor Jane Physiotherapy. It’s added to our list of modalities used to speed up recovery after an injury. Originally designed to break down kidney stones, pulsed shockwaves can be transmitted through soft tissues to provide multiple benefits.
When scar tissue from musculoskeletal conditions such as Frozen Shoulder, Rotator Cuff Tendonitis, Tennis Elbow or Plantar Fasciitis limits movement and causes pain, a few treatments with shockwave therapy can reverse the discomfort.
