At your first appointment we will explain the science and research behind how wellness care works, and complete a comprehensive evaluation to see if it is right for you. If we can help you, we will develop an individualised treatment plan which will include some or all of the following: Wellness, Spinal Corrective Care, RockBlades/RockTape, Western Acupuncture/Dry Needling and/or Lifestyle Wellness Coaching which would be specific to your condition and health goals.
Our training ranges from Spinal Corrective Care, Structure and Biomechanics, Neurology, Orthopaedics, Physical and Functional Medicine, Adjusting and Mobilising Techniques, Physical Rehabilitation, Physio-modalities, Nutrition, Sports Injury recovery and overall Wellness and by relying on these multiple disciplines. Our specialist is a dedicated Osteomyologist as Osteomyology puts aside the usual tunnel vision of rigidly trained philosophies and allows the doctor/practitioner to switch seamlessly from one bodywork protocol to another even combining some methods together, this way the doctor/practitioner is never defeated as his/her armoury is limitless and hence focussing on providing better patient care.
At the EDGE WELLNESS CLINIC, we work with patients towards full injury and physical rehabilitation with the aim being not just to treat the symptoms but to identify the cause and compensations of the pain/injury to ensure that there is no reoccurrence. Treatment and rehabilitation modalities that are available include RockBlades by RockTape tissue recovery and rehabilitation, Ultrasound, TENS and muscle stimulation, and Kinesiology taping with RockTape. Progress will be measured objectively and your program will rehabilitate you back to your personal goal.
Kinesiology Taping gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. It is also used for Preventive Maintenance, Oedema, and to treat pain. Kinesiology Taping is a technique based on the body’s own natural healing process. Kinesiology Taping exhibits its efficacy through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. This method basically stems from the science of Kinesiology, hence the name “Kinesio”. Muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body but also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms.
While pregnancy is an incredible and exciting time of transition, it can also come with it’s share of challenges including significant physical changes. There are many different taping methods with the goal of supporting you through your pregnancy, by easing the pain and stress on the pregnant body. Proper application of kinesiology tape can be used to effectively create a sling around your body helping to evenly distribute the weight of a pregnant belly, reducing fatigue and offering welcome relief from the strain of carrying around those extra pounds.
