Chiropractic

Chiropractic Care involves many different techniques, such as manual techniques (therapy using hands), modalities (ice, heat, ultrasound, interferential current), and active progressive therapy programs (exercise prescription). Chiropractic Care may, but does not always entail spinal manipulation or ‘adjustments’.

Chiropractic Care is a very effective treatment for almost any pain, strain, injury or condition including:

  • Car accident injuries (please see Motor Vehicle Accident Rehabilitation)
  • Back and neck pain
  • Knee, hip, and ankle pain
  • Hand and foot pain
  • Sprain/strains (including repetitive strain injuries)
  • Headaches/migraines Post-surgery
  • Sports injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Chronic pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Tendonitis
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Gait abnormalities

Sports Injuries

Sports Injuries require exercise as a vital part of the rehabilitation process. The idea that an athlete is completely cured once the treatments on the therapist’s table are over is simply outdated. Instead, when athletes visit practitioners, in conjunction with receiving a course of treatment, they will be set specific strengthening and flexibility exercises. Exercises are included in rehabilitation programs to ensure the injury site returns to a fully functional state and/or to ensure that the original cause of the injury is eliminated.

We use dynamic movement evaluation and SpiderTech taping protocols to improve movement patterns and sports performance. The following is a video on Facia Release and Optogait.

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is manual therapy involving the use of the therapist’s hands; however, there are several different types of Massage Therapy, such as Swedish Massage, Acupressure and Cranial Sacral Therapy.

Massage Therapy is very effective for:

  • Car accident injuries
  • Back and neck pain
  • Joint pain
  • Hip, knee, and ankle pain
  • Hand and foot pain
  • Sprain/strains (including repetitive strain injuries)
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Stress
  • Sports injuries
  • Work related injuries
  • Chronic pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Tendonitis
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • General relaxation

Brain Injury and Concussion Rehabilitation

Advanced balance and stability training.

Spinal Decompression Therapy

We offer the latest cutting edge technology in the non-surgical treatment of serious lower back pain and sciatica. Our commitment to offering the highest quality of care resulted in the addition of the FDA cleared Spinal Decompression technology for the treatment of back pain due to:

  • Herniated Discs
  • Bulging Discs
  • Pinched Nerve
  • Sciatica (leg pain)
  • Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Post-Surgical Pain

In the past, a patient suffering from disc problems was usually given pain medications, instructed to refrain from physical activities, referred for physical therapy, and when they weren’t progressing they were sent for spinal surgery. Conservative chiropractic care proved very helpful in many cases, yet there have been some cases when surgery seemed to be the only other option… until now.

Today, you don’t have to live with that pain anymore. Thanks to the concerted efforts of a team of top physicians and medical engineers, Spinal Decompression Therapy was developed to effectively treat lower back pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or degenerated discs. Spinal Decompression Therapy not only significantly reduces back pain in many patients, but also enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles.

Motor Vehicle Accident Rehabilitation

Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) Rehabilitation is a rehabilitation with a collaborative goal to return you to the physical state that you were in, before your car accident occurred. MVA Rehabilitation often requires the care of more than one health care provider and may involve blending such treatments as active rehabilitation, chiropractic and massage therapy for example.

Simply call Genesis Rehabilitation to schedule your New Patient Appointment for an assessment of your MVA injuries.

Therapeutic Laser Therapy

Therapeutic Laser Therapy is safe, effective, time efficient, and most importantly, drug free, non-invasive and side effect free. Laser Therapy has significantly gained acceptance amongst healthcare practitioners in recent years as an alternative and/or as a complement to conventional medical treatments.

The therapy is precise and accurate. It offers safe and effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions.

Low-level lasers supply energy to the body in the form of non-thermal photons of light. It is the application of red and near infrared light over injuries or wounds to improve soft tissue healing and relieve both acute and chronic pain. Low-level therapy uses cold (subthermal) laser light energy to direct bio-stimulative light energy to the body’s cells without injuring or damaging them in any way. When low level laser light waves penetrate deeply into the skin, they optimize the immune responses of our blood. This has both anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects. It is a scientific fact that light transmitted to the blood in this way has positive effective throughout the whole body, supplying vital oxygen and energy to every cell.

Custom Fitted Braces & Orthotics

Custom Fitted Braces are available in a variety of colours, finishes, patterns, and designs. A custom made orthotic is designed specifically for each individual, taking into consideration the activity, individual gait pattern, displacement of forces, and area of injury, in order to produce the best orthotic for that individual.

Alpha Stim

Alpha Stim Technology Adds Another Dimension to Pain Relief

Chronic pain hurts. Severe injury and acute traumatic pain can be debilitating. Both types of pain can also cause depression, anxiety and sleeplessness which, in turn, makes the pain worse. Then there is the stress of having to live with pain, but the associated loss of mobility and function, and the possible interruption of normal life patterns.

A new method of treatment, microcurrent electrical therapy (MET), can break the cycle and has provided continuing relief through a hand-held device that quickly and easily delivers non-invasive treatment directly to the pain site.

Alpha Stim Provides Controlled Relief

The benefits of Alpha Stim therapy are recognized by U.S. military medical practitioners, and the devices are used at more than 90 veterans hospitals. In addition, the head athletic trainer for the Dallas Cowboys notes that Alpha Stim technology “remains at the forefront of electromedicine.”

Independent clinical research has verified the effectiveness and lasting results, and both patient and physician surveys confirm satisfaction levels. After as few as five treatments, 71% of respondents reported significantly less pain. Satisfaction increases as use continues over a longer period of time, and functionality of painful areas increases proportionally.

Another Tool in the Arsenal

Genesis Rehabilitation & Sports Injury Clinic views Alpha Stim as another tool in the comprehensive lineup of beneficial treatments available today for patient treatment. It is an exciting era. It is our goal to determine the root cause of pain and formulate a plan to encourage relief and healing. We treat the whole person, however, and we use every means at our disposal.

Our caring chiropractic practice is equipped to deal with necessary rehabilitation procedures for concussion, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries and spinal injuries. We offer a full range of non-invasive treatments, including massage therapy, and laser therapy. We also employ the OptoGait analysis system, and we would be happy to discuss any of these available options with you.

We Put You in Control

We firmly believe in partnering with our patients for maximum benefit. In addition to the treatments performed by our professional clinicians and therapists, we believe that devices such as Alpha Stim offer you more personal control over your pain. It also helps alleviate associated symptoms, of headache, insomnia, depression, anxiety and stress.

Because the sensation of pain is transmitted to the brain along neural pathways, the low-level electrical manipulation at the point of the pain “short-circuits” the transmission. As a therapeutic option, Alpha Stim is non-invasive, drug-free, totally non-addictive, and virtually risk free with a less than 1% complications rate. It is also suitable for elderly patients and for those with compromised organ function, as well as for drug resistant patients.

Alpha Stim has been accepted worldwide as a treatment option, another example of beneficial technology used in conjunction with modern therapy for promotion of wellness.

OptoGait – Gait Analysis System

System for gait analysis

Optogait is a state of the art system of analysis that brings a proven philosophy of assessment to injury prevention and rehabilitation. Classically, contact gait analysis has been precise, informative, and costly. This last attribute has limited its use to large biomechanical institutes. To control costs, simple contact pads have been employed. Contact pads, however, cannot assess dynamic motion. Optogait’s innovative design affords doctors, therapists, and researchers the ability to become their own high-tech laboratories; contact analysis is now affordable and portable.

Optogait makes it possible to:

  • assess performance and physical condition
  • rapidly identify any muscular deficiencies and measure tolerance to various workloads
  • develop customized and diversified training/rehabilitation based on the test results
  • periodically check the results and the effectiveness of treatment
  • create a database of subjects
  • motivate subject by providing tangible evidence of progress
