Wobble Board for Rehabilitation Techniques

Are you familiar with the wobble board? This simple yet effective piece of equipment is used for specific rehabilitation techniques. The wobble board can be utilized to aid balance and provide many other benefits to those recovering from ankle, knee and hip injuries.  Wobble boards help to naturally relieve the stiffness that affects the muscles and joints following a sprain or other injury.  Strength, range of motion and muscle memory can be improved as the patient gently balances with both feet on the board and attempts to maintain equilibrium.

Other rehab, balance and strength building exercises can be employed using the wobble board. It’s one part of our comprehensive physical therapy services that we invite you to try!

Muscle and Joint Injuries

The muscles and joints of the body enable us to stay in motion and retain strength, but these amazing tissues can easily become injured as the result on an accident, overuse or repetitive motion. Finding an effective and targeted treatment that works for muscle and joint injuries is essential for relieving pain, regaining ability and preventing further injury.

Here at our practice, we offer a comprehensive array of treatments that are specifically designed to help individuals with muscle and joint injuries. Temperature based treatments that include cold packs and moist heat, along with carefully guided stretching and therapeutic exercise programs are efficient ways help the body heal and regain flexibility and strength, which are often lost when an injury occurs. We also maintain the latest physical therapy technologies, including electrical muscle stimulation and ultrasound capabilities.

If you’d like to learn more about how we can help you with joint sprains and dislocation, as well as muscle strain and inflammation, make an appointment with us.  We’ll be happy to provide answers to all of your questions and explain how our specialties can help with your specific case.

Electric Muscle Stimulation

Electrical muscle stimulation, or EMS, is a physical therapy treatment that can be used to sooth, prevent and treat the effects of musculoskeletal injuries. It’s also a fantastic way to relieve pain and stress, accelerate natural healing and increase your range of motion.

Athletes, and those who are recovering from occupation injuries or an auto accident, can greatly benefit from the effects of our electrical muscle stimulation capabilities. We use this therapy in combination with our physiotherapy modalities that include ultrasound, trigger point therapy and rehabilitation exercises.

Electrical muscle stimulation can help you retain your performance levels and even enhance them thanks to the flexibility improvement that can result from this treatment.

We welcome any questions you may have about this unique therapy and look forward to showing you how it can help your healing and wellness.
