The Union of Oshawa Physiotherapy Treatments and Chiropractic Remedies

An article on the Horse Channel website dated November 20, 2013 discusses the issue of crooked riding positions among equestrians, and how a group of researchers attempted to find a solution. The article suggests that a little physiotherapy could be the answer to correct the body form of equestrians:

Crooked RidersUsing a group of experienced riders, the researchers recorded their seated postural stability by measuring the symmetry (or lack thereof) of force distribution as they sat in a saddle. The riders were divided into two groups, and one of the group was treated with a physiotherapy intervention for the pelvic area. Physiotherapy may consist of specific exercises, soft tissue manipulation (such as massage), stretching or other treatments. All of the riders from both groups were then retested.

The group that received the physiotherapy intervention showed significant improvement in symmetry, suggesting that the treatment was effective. However, the study did not measure whether the effect was temporary or long-term. For riders who struggle with a crooked posture in the saddle, physiotherapy could be one method to help improve their seat, thereby improving communication with their horse.

Physiotherapists are concerned with restoring the physical capacity of their patients, in the same way chiropractors deal with musculoskeletal disorders. Many believe that both fields contrast each other, they actually agree on a lot of procedures and they can be used interchangeably to treat a patient. Hence, those undergoing Oshawa physiotherapy treatments should try pairing it with chiropractic therapy for enhanced results. Many patients have realized they can even use chiropractic as a supplement to physiotherapy as many chiropractors have practices that provide extensive physical rehabilitation programs.

How Expert Massage Therapy in Oshawa Can Assist with Fracture Healing

According to a report from The National Post, Steven Stamkos is in danger of missing the 2014 Winter Olympics due to an injury sustained during the NHL season:

Sochi 2014When Steven Stamkos crashed into the post in Boston on Monday afternoon, the shock waves could be felt all the way to Sochi, Russia.

The Tampa Bay Lightning star is out indefinitely with a broken right tibia, an injury that could be a significant blow to Team Canada in its efforts to defend gold at the Olympics. Stamkos was tied with Alex Steen as the NHL’s leading goal scorer, and with Sidney Crosby for the points lead at the time of his injury and figured to be a lock to make the team.

The broken tibia will require surgery to repair. The Lightning did not release a time frame, likely in part because the complexity of the fracture could affect things.

Recovering from a fracture extends beyond allowing the bone to reform. It also requires physical therapy (available at Chiropractic Wellness and Rehabilitation) to allow the affected area to regain the strength it had before the injury; this is especially important when the fracture occurs in the limbs. With a long road to recovery ahead, people recovering from a fracture can benefit from the many services that Chiropractic Wellness and Rehabilitation offers. An example would be therapeutic rehabilitation from an experienced Oshawa massage therapist.
