Treatment of Orthopaedic Conditions
Orthopaedic conditions are conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system, including the bones, joints, and muscles. These conditions can be from trauma, such as shoulder dislocation or a broken bone. Or they can be chronic, such as arthritis or bursitis, which can be progressive in nature and gradually worsen over time.
Orthopaedic conditions can cause pain and dysfunction, making even normal daily activities difficult. While some conditions are curable - like the broken bone - some conditions cannot be cured. Treatment will often seek to reduce pain and improve quality of life.
Orthopaedic Physiotherapy is concerned with the correction of deformities or functional impairments of the skeletal system, especially the extremities, the spine, and the associated structures of muscles and ligaments. When certain parts are mis-aligned, this can prevent other organs or muscles from working properly.
At Beacon Therapy, all of our therapists work along branches of this approach to health:
Lois’ approach to pelvic floor health and physiotherapy is a sub-discipline based off orthopaedic therapy with a focus on the pelvic floor. Lois uses Real-Time Ultrasound, as well as internal pelvic exams to provide core muscle assessment and re-education.
Halyna’s approach ensures that the container of the musculoskeletal structures is in place, and goes further by addressing how the organs within are arranged using visceral manipulation. Halyna also addresses the interplay between the container and the contents of the body.
