OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

Occupational therapy focuses on helping people increase independent function and enhance development in all areas of their daily life. Occupational therapists believe that occupations describe who you are and how you feel about yourself. If you are unable to do the things you want, or need to do, to live and to enjoy your life, then your general well-being may be affected.

Occupational therapists work with people of any age to promote health, prevent disability, and develop or maintain abilities. Occupations can include self-care (i.e. personal care, mobility), leisure (i.e. social activities, sports) and productivity (play, school, employment, homemaking).

Occupational therapy provides the skills for the job of living and solves the problems that interfere with people’s ability to do the activities or occupations that are important to them. We help people maximize function and live life to the fullest!

COUNSELLING & SOCIAL WORK

At Complex Injury Rehab, your individual needs inform our therapy approach.

Once assessed, the social worker and client work together to find strategies and systems of support to make positive change.

Experienced in cognitive behaviour therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, ACT, conditions of post-traumatic stress disorder, motivational interviewing, therapeutic movement, and resiliency building, the Complex Injury Social Work team has the skills to support clients of all ages.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-invasive treatment supporting the body’s musculoskeletal (MSK) system and associated neurological function, primarily by providing comprehensive, evidence-informed manual therapy.

MSK conditions can present in a variety of ways; minor to severe, acute to chronic, localized to widespread. Chiropractors are experts in assessing these conditions, and providing individualized care that leads to optimal outcomes.

As primary care practitioners, chiropractors can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment plan, recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.

GROUP THERAPY & CLASSES

Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy in which one or two therapists work with a number of clients simultaneously. The aims include relieving distress through discussing and expressing feelings; helping to change attitudes, behaviour and habits that may be unhelpful; and promoting more constructive and adaptive ways of coping.

Some groups may focus on providing members with information about specific issues in an educational format, while others may focus on expression of emotions and thoughts, and teach them requisite coping skills. Group therapy can work to address the psycho-emotional component that often accompanies physical injury, and can be part of a well-rounded treatment plan.

YOGA THERAPY

Yoga benefits all aspects of our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual being which supports a holistic, wellness-based lifestyle. Yoga Therapy is a customized application of yoga techniques and practices to help individuals facing a variety of health and life challenges manage their condition, reduce symptoms, increase vitality, and improve their overall physical and emotional well-being. Yoga can be an excellent starting point for individuals who need to build up tolerances for activity and exercise, while gaining insight into their own health and wellness.

MINDFULNESS THERAPY

Mindfulness is the psychological process of purposely bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present moment without judgement, which one can develop through the practice of meditation. There are a number of therapeutic applications based on mindfulness for helping people experiencing a variety of psychological conditions; reducing symptoms of depression, stress, anxiety and pain management have all been shown to be associated with mindfulness training. Mindfulness can be a powerful adjunct to treatment for a variety of conditions, both physical and mental.

PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapists are primary health care professionals with a significant role in health promotion and treatment of injury and disease. They combine their in-depth knowledge of the body and how it works, with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability. A physiotherapist’s main goal of treatment is to restore, maintain, and improve a patient’s mobility, function, and well-being.

ACUPUNCTURE

Neurofunctional Acupuncture is a precise treatment technique in which fine solid needles (acupuncture needles) are inserted into anatomically defined neurofunctional sites, and stimulated for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the neuromusculoskeletal system.

Outcomes may include a reduction in pain, decreased muscle tonicity, and improved ease and quality of movement. Neurofunctional acupuncture is mechanism-based, not disease-based; therapeutic goals and treatment targets are selected based on the identified movement dysfunctions contributing to the clinical presentation of the symptoms.

MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health. Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved; and physical dysfunction and pain and the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented through the use of massage therapy.

PoNS TREATMENT™

The PoNS™ (short for Portable Neuromodulation Stimulator) is an innovative medical device, inclusive of a controller and mouthpiece, which delivers a mild electrical stimulus to increase neural flow to the brain.

Based in the principles of neuroplasticity, the PoNS™ program combines gentle stimulation of the surface of the tongue with a comprehensive physical rehabilitation plan. This has been shown to help restore lost function associated with mild-to-moderate Traumatic Brain Injury and Multiple Sclerosis.
