We use evidence-based rehabilitation/interventions, strength coaching and graded progression of exercise to rehabilitate musculoskeletal injuries, orthopedic conditions and chronic pain. Some of the areas of rehabilitation that Prana Physiotherapy specializes in include: lower back pain/dysfunction, shoulder injuries/dysfunction, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rehabilitation, patella femoral syndrome (PFS) dysfunction and post knee/hip replacement with strength/mobility deficit amongst elderly clients.
Knee Osteoarthritis (OA) Focus Sessions
We use individual sessions and small group classes for elderly clients who suffer from chronic pain due to Knee OA. These sessions equip clients with strategies to manage pain and aim at improving their quality of life through functional strength training and orthopedic manual therapy.
Breathing Assessments and Treatments
Quality of breath makes a huge difference to our quality of life. This philosophy is fundamental to our treatment methodology. At Prana Physiotherapy, we come across dysfunctional breathing patterns in our clinic regularly. Breathing disorders have a profound impact on health, wellbeing, energy expenditure and potential to function normally. We commonly find breathing pattern disorders (BPD) in patients presenting with tension headaches, neck stiffness and shoulder problems among other more acute conditions such as hyper ventilation syndrome (HVS). We seek to identify such problems and optimize respiratory patterns by using a holistic approach. Our approach includes physiotherapy interventions, structural restoration techniques, mental skills intervention, along with restorative yoga to restore abnormal or dysfunctional breathing patterns. Workshops and classes are coming soon.
