Chronic Pain

ChronicPain

Suffering with pain can ruin your life, making it difficulty to enjoy normal activities and be social. We understand that patients with chronic pain need specialized physiotherapy. We have helped many patients reduce their pain and reduce the amount of pain medication needed. We thoroughly evaluate your condition to focus on the root cause of your problem, bring mobility, stability and strength to the area with special techniques.

Patients suffering with chronic pain, polymyalgia and fibromyalgia can greatly benefit from our programs. Our pain reduction programs are gentle and safe. We work closely with your doctor to maintain good communication throughout your treatment, however you do have the option to begin at Physiotherapy Kingston and Spinal Rehab Centre without seeing a doctor first.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years and has demonstrated to help many people with pain, especially those with chronic pain. Acupuncture is a technique involving the insertion of thin needles into the skin at specific points in the body to achieve therapeutic effects. It is virtually painless, but has numerous therapeutic benefits including: reduction of pain, promoting natural healing, increasing energy, function and mobility. All of our Physiotherapists are trained in acupuncture and Cathie MacLeod is certified through the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute.
