4 Types of Massage Therapy Toronto Treatments that we utilize for Patellofemoral Syndrome at the Holistic Move

Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex (PDTR)

PDTR is a specialized technique that focuses on stimulating specific proprioceptive receptors to restore proper proprioception and re-optimize muscle function. By activating deep tendon reflexes, this technique (PDTR) helps re-establish the communication between the nervous system and muscles, reducing instability, reducing pain, and aiding in the recovery of typical overuse injuries such as Dislocated Shoulder.

Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT)

NKT is a cutting-edge technique that identifies and corrects faulty movement patterns by addressing muscle imbalances and dysfunctional movement compensations. By using manual muscle testing and precise corrective exercises, NKT aims to reprogram the neuro-muscular system, promoting pain relief, improved stability, and enhanced athletic performance for individuals with Dislocated Shoulder.

Active Release Technique (ART)

My Active Release Technique (ART) is a dynamic and hands-on approach that combines movement and precise pressure to treat Dislocated Shoulder. By targeting soft tissue adhesions and scar tissue, ART breaks down barriers to healing, improves joint capsule range of motion, and accelerates recovery. 

Sports Massage Therapy

Our specialized sports massage therapy combines various manual therapy techniques, including deep tissue massage and Swedish massage, to target muscle imbalances, reduce tension, and enhance recovery. By addressing the specific needs of athletes and active individuals, this comprehensive approach promotes optimal healing, restores functionality, and boosts your shoulder’s resilience against repetitive use.

Frequently Asked Questions

As an RMT, I will continue to offer high-quality therapeutic massage therapy treatments. In addition, with my additional education and training in functional neurology, I can offer patients an integrative approach that often has many longer-lasting benefits. Using a functional neurology-based therapy like P-DTR, we identify the movements that cause your symptoms, perform a specific treatment, retest the same movement after treatment, then provide you with the appropriate exercises for “homework” to solidify our results. Rest assured, I am also Certified and Licensed by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario.

 I often hear from my patients that they have tried nearly everything to resolve their issues or meet their fitness goals. Since every case is unique, this is why I have an initial assessment appointment for first timer visitors. It allows me to understand the problem better, ask the proper questions, and recommend the best treatment for your needs.

Massage therapy for a dislocated shoulder focuses on reducing pain, improving range of motion, accelerating healing, and strengthening the surrounding muscles. Targeted techniques, such as myofascial release, deep tissue massage, and joint mobilization, are used to address muscular imbalances, promote tissue healing, reduce inflammation, and enhance overall shoulder function. Massage therapy can provide relief, improve mobility, and support the healing process of a dislocated shoulder.

The number of massage sessions required to see results for a dislocated shoulder can vary depending on factors such as the severity of the dislocation, your individual healing response, and any underlying conditions. Our experienced therapists will assess your specific situation and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs. Regular sessions over a period of time are typically recommended to achieve optimal results.

Yes, massage therapy can be beneficial for individuals in various stages of a dislocated shoulder, from acute injuries to post-recovery rehabilitation. Our therapists are trained to adapt their techniques and treatment approaches based on the specific stage and needs of your shoulder. Whether you’re seeking immediate pain relief or aiming for long-term rehabilitation and prevention, massage therapy can be an effective part of your overall treatment plan.

While massage therapy cannot guarantee the prevention of future dislocations, it can play a supportive role in strengthening the muscles and improving stability around the shoulder joint. By addressing muscular imbalances, enhancing range of motion, and promoting proper alignment, massage therapy helps create a more stable shoulder environment. Our therapists can provide guidance on exercises, self-care techniques, and postural corrections to further support the prevention of future shoulder injuries.

Massage therapy for a dislocated shoulder should not be excessively painful. Our therapists are trained to apply appropriate pressure and techniques to ensure your comfort during the session. While you may experience some discomfort during certain therapeutic movements or when targeting specific areas, it should not be unbearable. Communication with your therapist is essential to provide feedback and adjust the treatment as needed to ensure a positive and effective experience.

Absolutely. Massage therapy can complement other treatments for a dislocated shoulder, such as physiotherapy, chiropractic care, and medical interventions. Our therapists work in collaboration with your Physiotherapist or Chiropractor to ensure a comprehensive and integrated approach to your recovery. By combining different modalities, we can optimize the healing process, address specific needs, and support your overall progress.

To help prevent shoulder dislocations and protect the ligaments in your shoulder, you can strengthen the surrounding muscles with resistance training, maintaining proper rest between strenuous activity, while avoid overloading the shoulder.

No, frozen shoulder and dislocated shoulder are not the same thing. They are two different conditions that affect the shoulder joint, but they have distinct causes and symptoms.

Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition characterized by stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint. It occurs when the connective tissues surrounding the shoulder joint become thickened and tight, limiting the range of motion. The exact cause of frozen shoulder is not fully understood, but it can develop after an injury or surgery, or it may occur spontaneously without any obvious cause. The symptoms of frozen shoulder typically progress through three stages: freezing, frozen, and thawing.
On the other hand, a dislocated shoulder happens when the upper arm bone (humerus) comes out of its normal position within the shoulder joint. This displacement can occur due to a sudden trauma or injury, such as a fall, sports-related accident, or a direct blow to the shoulder. Dislocated shoulder often causes intense pain, swelling, and visible deformity of the shoulder. It may also restrict the movement of the affected arm and require medical intervention to put the joint back into its proper alignment.

When a person experiences a dislocated shoulder, the rotator cuff can be affected in various ways. The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround and support the shoulder joint, providing stability and facilitating its movement.
During a shoulder dislocation, the humerus (upper arm bone) pops out of its socket within the shoulder joint. This forceful displacement can lead to several injuries to the rotator cuff such as strains and tears, labrum tears, and impingement. 

NKT and P-DTR are two advanced treatments that focus on locating the root cause of your ankle sprain and correcting the functional imbalances within the body. Using precise manual muscle tests, an experienced therapist can quickly find the root of many dysfunctions that is causing your ankle pain or discomfort and treating it.
