Winter in Calgary means freezing temperatures and icy conditions, so it’s no surprise that many locals sustain injuries from slipping and falling on icy sidewalks and driveways. If you’ve suffered an injury of this nature, you may benefit from a visit to our physiotherapist or osteopathic manual therapists at Calgary WOW Centre. Both physiotherapy and osteopathic manual therapy use non-invasive physical manipulation of the body to promote the body’s natural healing processes and encourage proper alignment of the musculoskeletal system. Research has shown that manual therapy in conjunction with exercise is effective in treating the pain, stiffness, and weakness that may result from acute injuries. Your journey with these manual therapies will also be uniquely customized to your needs. Your therapist will work closely with you to understand your physiology and offer the specific treatment modalities that will benefit you most. Even minor injuries can have lasting effects without proper recovery, so don’t hesitate to schedule your post-injury visit with Calgary WOW Centre today.
