Injury Treatments

At Laura's Pilates & Injury Therapy, we begin with a questionnaire and a friendly conversation to understand your injury or discomfort better. Next, we analyze your posture and observe how your body behaves during different exercises to pinpoint the root of the issue. The movement examination helps us view how the body, muscles and joints react during active, passive and resisted movement. From here, we decide on the best treatment plan, tailored specifically to your needs, ensuring a more effective treatment.

Treatments We Offer

We offer various modalities to treat pain and injuries. After our assessment we can discuss which treatment and exercises would be right for you to heal quicker and stronger.

Sports Massage

Sports Massage or Deep Tissue Massage (DTM) is a great way to help loosen out any tight and tired muscles and help rejuvenate them. DTM gets into those deeper layers of muscles and helps iron out those tight areas. Deep pressure is also used in Sports Massage but with a faster stroke.

Vacuum Cupping Therapy

This is another form of deep tissue treatment and will favour anyone who is not keen of dry needling. Cupping Therapy helps increase blood flow to those deep tight muscles in the body as it lifts up the skin and superficial muscles into the cup. Specific training has been completed to practice Vacuum Cupping in Laura’s Pilates & Injury Clinic.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling involves the insertion of a sterile needle (only used once) into a trigger point or knot in the muscle. This trigger point causes pain in a muscle and can refer pain to different areas in the body. Several research has proven a relief of pain in these points as a result of dry needling. Specific training has been completed to practice Dry Needling in Laura’s Pilates & Injury Therapy.

Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping® is tape that is specially designed to provide support and stability to the body to help aid with recovery and the healing process. Kinesio® tape is not restrictive but it moves with the mechanics of the muscles or joints and helps relieve pain, aid with lymphatic drainage which will allow a decrease in inflammation and can have many benefits as a result. Studies have proven a physiological effect on muscles, ligaments, skin along with an effect on the lymphatic and circulatory systems as a result of Kinesio Taping®.
