Guelph Repetitive Strain Treatment

Guelph Rehab Centre has a unique and successful approach for many types of repetitive strain injuries such as:

  • Golfers/Tennis Elbow
  • Rotator Cuff Tendonitis
  • Achilles Tendonitis

The tendons become adhesive, shortened and inflamed, which leads to symptoms typically felt as pain, soreness, decreased mobility and weakness.  

The most common reason for these types of overuse injuries are:

  • Repetitive movement
  • Poor body mechanics 
  • Improper techniques  

We have developed integrated treatment protocols that guide the patient through various stages of recovery from initial assessment to discharge.  Our programs integrate 6 key components:

  1. Manual Therapy  (ART, MFR, JNT Mobs)
  2. Modalities  (Shockwave* and Laser)
  3. Acupuncture
  4. Postural education and correction
  5. Active rehabilitation
  6. Lifestyle/Homecare program

By treating the affected tissue, as well as the surrounding structures that are contributing to the soft tissue injury and imbalance is the most effective and successful ways to get full resolution of repetitive strain injuries.  Our therapist’s then follow this up with stretching and a home care program to avoid a re-occurrence.  

Our experienced team provides an integrated approach to healthcare, providing consistant, quality care with proven results.

*Guelph Rehab Centre is one of the only clinics in Guelph with Shockwave Therapy.  We also do not charge an extra fee for Shockwave Therapy unlike many clinics in the area.
