Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is the evidence based application of the traditional theories of acupuncture combined with the current concepts of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology & pathophysiology.
Combining ancient Chinese principles with modern science in order to relieve acute pain, alter movement, and improve function. It involves the insertion of very fine sterile disposable needles in specific points on the body to access different physiological responses. Acupuncture points are carefully determined based on your specific injury and symptoms targeting the muscles and nerves that are causing the pain or dysfunction.
The scientifically proven benefits of acupuncture include: pain relief, inflammation reduction, improved blood flow and arterial function, stress reduction, improved nerve conduction and improved systemic organ function.
Electroacupuncture is the method of attaching acupuncture needles to a device that generates a mild but continuous electrical pulse. Electro Acupuncture is extremely effective as it stimulates a larger region surrounding acupuncture points, increases blood circulation, relaxing spastic muscles, and releasing painful trigger points.

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction
Chiropractors are trained to correct poor joint mechanics and joint misalignments. Chiropractic treatment of the TMJ focuses on joint mobilizations, adjustments and soft tissue techniques applied directly to the TMJ and its surrounding musculature. In most cases, TMD is influenced or exacerbated by poor joint mechanics, and tight musculature in the upper back and neck. Therefore, of equal importance, treatment also focuses on corrections to the mechanics and positioning of the joints in the upper back and neck to relieve symptoms associated with TMJ dysfunction. When these treatments are employed, motion of your upper back, neck and jaw joints can improve and your symptoms such as: ear pain, jaw locking, headaches, and neck pain can be reduced or eliminated.

Pelvic Floor Muscles Have 5 Major Functions:
*Maintaining continence of the bowel and bladder
*Allowing sexual function and pleasure
*Providing support to the internal organs; keeping the uterus, bladder and intestines within the abdominal cavity where they belong
*Providing support to the low back
*Helping the circulatory system to get the blood and other body fluids from the legs back to the heart
PELVIC FLOOR DYSFUNCTION can be diagnosed by physiotherapists with specialized training using internal & external manual techniques to evaluate the function of the pelvic floor muscles, also assessing the ability to contract and relax these muscles. The bones and muscles of the low back, hips and Sacro-iliac joints (SI Joints) will also need to be assessed since these joints can stress the pelvic floor muscles.
DIASTASIS RECTI: Is the separation in the rectus abdominis or "6 pack" muscle, most often occurng during pregnancy. If you can lift your head while lying on your back and the centre of your stomach protrudes out, you may have what is called rectus diastasis. It is measured by the number of fingers you can fit between the muscle when lying on your back and lifting your head.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT? Your abdominals work with your pelvic floor, therefore a separation of the rectus abdominis/core muscles can make the pelvic floor less efficient and may also contribute to incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. Corrective exercises are recommended.

Osteopathy is completely hands-on meaning the practitioner is working with the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and fascia to bring back balance as these areas can become constricted, restricted or inflamed. Osteopathy looks at the body as a whole and treatments aim to positively affect the body’s nervous system, circulatory and lymphatic systems.
