Massage therapy is an ancient therapeutic form of treatment and is one of the oldest forms of treatment known to humankind. If you are in need of massage therapy or are looking for more information about it, visit us at Wilson Health Services.   

The human body performs many functions which makes it possible for different objectives to be achieved. Some of these functions, as in the feet, can change in unexpected and undesired ways over time. At Wilson Health Services we can assist in getting the feet structure to work as expected.

Foot orthotics are great for providing support and stability to a foot where muscles and ligaments are weak or not aligned properly. Custom foot orthotics provide better results because they are made to match the exact area that requires attention. Since each individual is different, providing a customized solution offers the best way for fast improvement.

A small misalignment in a foot can lead to pressure being exerted on other parts of the body. If the condition is left unattended, the situation can get more complicated with time. Using a well-fitting solution helps distribute pressure evenly to reduce stress on a few other parts of the body. A proper intervention mechanism gets to stop the problem and prevent further deterioration.

Foot orthotics that fit well can provide support to restrict movement which creates the right environment for a problem to be rectified. It helps influence the foot’s movement to change in a natural way, just as it is meant to be. This prevents causing more damage while slowing down the spread of inflammation in the body’s tissues.

Problems that go unchecked can become larger and probably require surgery to rectify them. By intervening early and correcting anomalies in the right way, surgical procedures are avoided. A foot recovering from a fracture can also be fitted to assist during healing process. It lets the foot heal without exposing it to unnecessary pressure.

The feet are sensitive to small alignment issues that can lead to imbalance or discomfort. Early intervention helps prevent creating unpleasant outcomes. Working with a professional provides an environment where one can be assisted and monitored. This ensures the recovery process goes well without complications.

The foot is one of the most intricate structures of the body including bones, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. The feet are required to sustain a great deal of pressure on a daily basis providing the body with stability and mobility. With natural methods and practices advised by a Cambridge ON chiropractor, a number of foot care solutions are made available to produce the healthiest results.

Wearing the correct fitting shoes with the appropriate sole support can prevent complications in mobility. Comfortable and structured footgear maintain the alignment of the feet and can minimize the possibility of painful bunions because of squeezing into the wrong shoe size. Footwear must be breathable and provide the foot with stability while walking, running, and standing.

Painful symptoms must be assessed by a professional to determine whether structural problems are present. Ongoing foot discomfort including hip, knee, and back pain may reveal misalignment of the bones. Alternative therapy including chiropractic offers natural modes of care with adjustment techniques to restore the balance of these components and to promote flexible function.

Poor arch formation or flat feet may contribute to painful symptoms in the back and knees as the body is no longer balanced. A practitioner will advise on wearing individualized arch supports that creates a prosthetic arch for the improvement of foot formation and stability. Many symptoms associated with poor physical alignment can be relieved with the use of arch supports.

Feet must be kept dry and clean on a daily basis. This includes the use of foot powders and quality socks that will minimize excessive sweating and risk of disease. A soothing and moisturizing cream can be applied to dry and hard skin for relief from cracked heels and patches.

Maintaining the health of each foot can provide support and prevent problems in mobility. Alignment of structures and relaxation of the soft tissues can minimize dysfunction and promote optimum mobility. Applying hygiene methods will minimize the development and spread of bacteria and fungus responsible for podiatry problems.

Chiropractic care helps relieve thigh, shin, ankle and toe pain naturally and quickly. Get more info about a reliable Cambridge ON chiropractor at http://www.wilsonhealth.ca now.

Introducing Decompression, Shockwave and Laser Therapies to Wilson Health Services

Pain in a man's body on a gray background.

Man showing painHave you heard the news? Wilson Health Services has added Decompression, Shockwave and Laser therapies to our services. These 3 therapies are often misunderstood, so we’re explaining the benefits of each treatment and what you, the patient, can expect when undergoing treatment and why they aren’t to be feared.

Decompression Therapy is recommended for those suffering with sciatica, and back and neck pain associated with bulging, herniated or degenerated discs who have exhausted all other treatment options.

During treatment, the patient lies comfortably on a motorized padded table. The upper part of the table remains still while the lower part gently moves back and forth to relieve pressure on the damaged disc, and the irritated nerve, which in turn allows the disc to re-absorb water, oxygen and nutrients. A nourished disc is a happy disc!

You may feel a slight stretch in your back or neck, but most patients report it’s a very relaxing therapy. It’s not uncommon to use this therapy session to fit a quick nap into your day! There are no known side effects to spinal decompression therapy.

Shockwave Therapy (SWT) is recommended for patients with musculoskeletal injuries resulting in chronic pain for at least 3 months with unsatisfactory response to other courses of treatment. Shockwave-treatable injuries include heel spurs, Achilles tendonitis, jumper’s knee, shin pain, tennis elbow, rotator cuff tendonitis and calcification, hip pain, stress fractures, shin splits, and nerve damage.

The shockwaves themselves are acoustic waves (think Hertz not Voltage) applied to the skin’s surface above the pain source using a small handheld transmitter. Pain is reduced due to the anti-inflammatory reaction of tissues to the shockwaves. Metabolism and blood circulation are stimulated, causing the body to heal faster than it would on its own. Think of it like a healing rock concert – heavy on the bass.

It’s common for patients who use shockwave therapy to notice their pain lessening immediately, and to find that the healing process is speedy. There are no known side effects from shockwave therapy. Some patients find the treatment uncomfortable, but not intolerable.

Laser Therapy is recommended to patients for a number of musculoskeletal problems including fractures, tendonitis, arthritis, back pain, gout, tears in ligaments, tendons and muscles, nail fungus, and skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis and acne.

Treatment is applied directly to the skin using red and infrared light technology by way of LED lights. It’s important that the light be absorbed by and not reflected off the skin; you could think of it like a disco dance party without the mirror ball. We use class IV laser technology, which penetrates the tissues deeper and treats injuries faster than cold laser technology. Cells and damaged tissues absorb the light energy and change it into biochemical energy which improves circulation, regular cell function, and heals the pain-causing damage faster than the body can on its own.

Laser therapy is a non-toxic, pain-free treatment, with almost no known side effects.

It’s not too late to book in 2015!

Time flies! There are less than 2 months left in 2015. You read that right!

Organizing A Schedule For The WeekHave you booked the rest of you 2015 appointments?

When the calendar year comes to an end, so does the balance of your health benefits. As our clients realize that they have unused health benefits, our appointment calendar fills fast.

There is a misconception that the cold wintschedule organiseer months limit the amount of exercise we get when we have lawns to mow and rake. For many of us, winter provides more opportunity to incorporate physical activity into our daily routines. With the cold comes regular de-icing and removing snow from our cars, sidewalks, and driveways. Even arranging, and packing-up holiday decorations often requires repetitive motion.

Regardless of the season, it’s worthwhile to your overall health to find out how your busy schedule impacts your physical health – consider the consequences. A herniated disc will not get any better while you’re building a snowman. Your sciatica will not thank you for that toboggan ride if it’s been a month since your last chiropractic session.

When you do book your next appointment, talk to us about the toll your body will face if you take more time than is recommended between sessions. Ours is a society that is constantly on the go, whether we are working overtime, taking the kids to hockey and dance, or meeting friends for dinner. It’s important to our mental health to stimulate our minds and maintain our personal connections, but it is equally important to take care of our bodies! Healing cannot progress without regular care, and missing or postponing treatment may even lead to a regression in your healing process.

If you have lagged in booking your next treatment, now is the time to call us and schedule your sessions for the rest of the year. If you have put off calling for a consultation, now is the time to do it. There are only 5 weeks left in your 2015 health coverage, and those 5 weeks could make the difference between a Happy New Year and a 2016 resolution to regularly schedule a trip to your registered massage therapist.
