Monashee Health Collective currently offers the following types of experience:
Functional Range Conditioning
A system of joint health, and mobility training based in scientific principals and research. Mobility refers to the amount of USABLE motion that one possesses across a particular articulation (joint). The more mobile a person is, the more they are able to maximize their movement potential safely, efficiently, and effectively.
A movement enhancement system that develops maximum body control, flexibility and usable ranges of motion. Kinstretch is complete with a self-assessment system allowing you the ability to monitor your own body for dysfunction that may be causing pain, loss of performance, or that may be putting you at an increased chance of injury.
Supervised Exercise Therapy
The research supporting supervised exercise therapy is vast. The mechanisms of response to exercise include improvement in daily functional efficiency, healing of chronic tissue through small doses of inflammatory activation, increased pain tolerance, and adaptations within skeletal muscle.
A stainless steel tool used to stimulate and promote healing of stubborn chronic tendons. Combined with supervised exercise therapy, positive outcomes for tendon related injuries are high.
Active Release Technique
Tension is placed on the muscle with hands as the patient stretches the muscle slowly.
Registered Massage THerapy
Registered massage therapists provide a special dimension of health care to help some patients in ways that no other discipline can match. Massage therapists are an essential element of world-class treatment and prevention of acute and chronically painful conditions. Research shows that massage therapy including remedial exercise can reduce pain, anxiety and stress, improve joint movement, sleep and ones quality of life.
As highly trained health practitioners, physiotherapists have the necessary skills to identify risk factors for disease and disability, while providing timely interventions and treatments. Physiotherapists shift emphasis away from solely treating disability, disease or injury toward promoting broader health outcomes to the benefit of the individual patient and their community.
