Active Rehabilitation (Exercise prescription and Strength and Conditioning)

Acupuncture and Dry Needling
- Both Acupuncture and Dry Needling are safe practices that involve inserting sterile, very thin needles through the skin to promote natural healing
- Acupuncture has been around for more than 2000 years and is one of the most commonly used medical practices around the world. It can help reduce pain and inflammation and promote improved functioning of the body.
- During Dry Needling the needle is inserted directly into a muscle creating a twitch which effectively reduces muscle tension and can help to improve range of motion and reduce pain.
- Concussion in defined in research as a mild traumatic brain injury and can be acquired through sport, motor vehicle incidents, falls or other daily activities. If not assessed and treated properly concussion can cause lingering deficiencies.
- Baseline Testing is recommended for anyone participating in any form of contact or high level sport. It consists of standardized cognitive and physical assessments to determine ‘normal’ values for each individual. This information is invaluable for assessing and determining the most appropriate management plan for concussion.
