One-On-One Physiotherapy with a Consistent Provider - Your appointment guarantees one-on-one time spent with a physiotherapist; No aides or assistants of any kind. Jacob Carter will be the sole provider of your physiotherapy, which means no switching between therapists.
Detailed Subjective History - Initial assessments start with a series of questions to help me understand your reason for seeking treatment.All of the details assist me in focusing the examination, developing a diagnosis, and creating a cutting edge treatment plan that fits your goals.
Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA)- I utilize a medical movement assessment that is trusted by professional sport teams to identify and treat compensations in the body that may have predisposed you to developing your injury.With this knowledge, we can fix the problem at its source.
Clinical Running Gait Analysis - If you are assessed at One Wellness, we can perform a running gait analysis using a treadmill, and specialized software. The length of time that we spend dissecting your running form will depend on your assessment / treatment goals. In addition, the information from this analysis will be used to inform the rest of our assessment and treatment techniques.
Advanced Manual Therapy Techniques -Assessment and treatment tools including spinal mobilization and manipulation, peripheral joint mobilization and manipulation, soft tissue release (massage), cupping, Graston/IASTM, and nerve mobilization.
Functional Dry Needling (FDN) / Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS), Electro-IMS, and Anatomical Acupuncture - Valuable tools used to treat trigger points, tight muscles, and various pain syndromes.
Therapeutic Taping - In some cases the use of athletic tape, Leukotape, or Kinesiotape can help to re-align joint or soft tissue mechanics, and bring an increased awareness to movement patterns.
Specific Corrective Exercises - I use my background in Kinesiology to provide you with a home exercise program that will maintain the gains we make during each treatment.
All Supplies Are Provided - I utilize a comfortable treatment table and own all relevant treatment tools.
Referral to Specialists - If I determine that you need to see a specialist, I will directly refer you (without needing to ask another physician to do so) to the most appropriate physician in Canmore, Banff or Calgary.
Communication with Physicians - If necessary, I will inform your referring physician and/or family physician of your diagnosis and update them on your progress.
Answers to Your Questions– Please feel free to discuss any questions and concerns you may have.Your full recovery, peace of mind, and concerns are of the utmost importance to me.
