The Union of Oshawa Physiotherapy Treatments and Chiropractic Remedies

An article on the Horse Channel website dated November 20, 2013 discusses the issue of crooked riding positions among equestrians, and how a group of researchers attempted to find a solution. The article suggests that a little physiotherapy could be the answer to correct the body form of equestrians:

Crooked RidersUsing a group of experienced riders, the researchers recorded their seated postural stability by measuring the symmetry (or lack thereof) of force distribution as they sat in a saddle. The riders were divided into two groups, and one of the group was treated with a physiotherapy intervention for the pelvic area. Physiotherapy may consist of specific exercises, soft tissue manipulation (such as massage), stretching or other treatments. All of the riders from both groups were then retested.

The group that received the physiotherapy intervention showed significant improvement in symmetry, suggesting that the treatment was effective. However, the study did not measure whether the effect was temporary or long-term. For riders who struggle with a crooked posture in the saddle, physiotherapy could be one method to help improve their seat, thereby improving communication with their horse.

Physiotherapists are concerned with restoring the physical capacity of their patients, in the same way chiropractors deal with musculoskeletal disorders. Many believe that both fields contrast each other, they actually agree on a lot of procedures and they can be used interchangeably to treat a patient. Hence, those undergoing Oshawa physiotherapy treatments should try pairing it with chiropractic therapy for enhanced results. Many patients have realized they can even use chiropractic as a supplement to physiotherapy as many chiropractors have practices that provide extensive physical rehabilitation programs.


For this reason It’s not a surprise to find chiropractic overlapping physiotherapy, and vice-versa. There are even occasions when a physiotherapist would recommend a chiropractor to a patient for additional treatment. Many athletes have relied on both practices to recover from debilitating injuries. For those suffering from back pains, the two practices offer effective treatments that can often be used interchangeably.

Patients receiving only physiotherapy in Oshawa might want to look into chiropractic and see what the practice can offer them. Licensed chiropractic centers such as the Chiropractic Wellness and Rehabilitation, also called CWR Health Clinics, have treatments that are based on sound medical procedures, and can be used in conjunction with existing physiotherapy sessions. In many cases patients respond and recover faster to chiropractic techniques and chiropractic rehabilitation strategies. Whether it’s a game-breaking injury or poor posture, there’s simply no reason to rely on only one form of treatment when both can be used to speed up recovery. For this reason, Chiropractic Wellness and Rehabilitation is a multidisciplinary practice that features many health professionals that provide a full service health clinic for residents of Durham Region looking for physiotherapy in Oshawa.

CWR Advises Using Extended Health Coverage for Oshawa Massage Therapy

Oshawa, Ontario (January 3, 2014) – Chiropractic Wellness and Rehabilitation (CWR) Health Clinics is advising the public to use their extended health coverage for Oshawa massage therapy, chiropractic treatments, and custom orthotics. The practice urges their patients to maximize their benefits as they are there to improve their quality of life and overall health and wellness.

Many people suffer from different kinds of chronic body aches and pains caused by several factors. Some of them include past injuries, stress, and muscle strains that affect the spine, joints, pelvis, along with all the supporting muscles and tissues. To address these concerns, the practice utilizes massage therapy and chiropractic care through non-invasive and natural solutions.


Through massage therapy, patients experience pain relief while maintaining, rehabilitating, and augmenting their body's physical functions. Each session is conducted by licensed and registered therapists who are adept at manipulating joints and soft tissues in the affected areas to alleviate pain. Moreover, massage therapy also promotes blood circulation, which expedites the healing of injuries and boosts the body's immune system.

Patients who opt for chiropractic treatment will be administered spinal manipulative therapies and adjustments to relieve pain, eliminate muscle tightness, and restore body function and mobility. It also helps patients who are suffering from recurring pain in the neck, head, and back. In CWR Health Clinics, chiropractic care is administered by qualified doctors who underwent specialized clinical training that enables them to aid traditional medical treatments and address various issues affecting the musculoskeletal system.
