Biofeedback: Enhancing Mind-Body Connection

Biofeedback is a revolutionary technique that utilizes electronic tools to help you gain awareness and control of certain bodily functions that we usually think of as automatic.

Here at Wilderman Medical Clinic, we’ve got an excellent Kinesiologist who is a certified HeartMath Practitioner, specializing in heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback.

By using the HeartMath System, we can help you manage conditions like anxiety, depression, insomnia, chronic pain, and fatigue. Sessions are tailored to your specific needs and typically last between 30 to 60 minutes. 

Conditions Treated with Biofeedback:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Chronic pain
  • Fatigue

Mirror Therapy: Rewiring Neural Pathways

Mirror therapy is an absolute game-changer when it comes to treating complex neuropathic conditions and stroke recovery.

By using a mirror to reflect the image of your healthy limb, we can trick your brain into perceiving movement in the affected limb, leading to improved range of motion, strength, and decreased pain.

Our Registered Kinesiologist will guide you through customized mirror therapy sessions to ensure you get the best possible results. For maximum benefits, we recommend having sessions 2-3 times per week for 6-8 weeks. 

Conditions Treated with Mirror Therapy:

  • Phantom limb syndrome
  • Complex regional pain syndrome
  • Stroke recovery

Stretch Therapy with microStretching

Get ready to loosen up and feel great with our stretch therapy services, including microStretching! This approach is all about improving your range of motion, aiding muscle recovery, and relieving pain.

Unlike traditional stretching methods, microStretching focuses on gentle and supported stretches to decrease neuromuscular tension and promote relaxation.

It is perfect for patients dealing with arthritis or generalized pain conditions like fibromyalgia. And the benefits? Improved sleep quality and stress reduction, just to name a few. Initial assessments usually take about 60 minutes, and follow-up appointments are tailored to your unique needs.

Conditions Treated with Stretch Therapy:

  • Muscle aches and strains
  • Arthritic pains
  • Fibromyalgia

Customized Exercise Programming

Whether you’re a fitness enthusiast or recovering from an injury, our Kinesiologist offers evidence-based exercise programs tailored to your unique goals and capabilities.

From rehabilitating injuries to enhancing core strength for balance and fall prevention, we are dedicated to helping you achieve optimal physical fitness safely and effectively.

Conditions Treated with Exercise:

Exercise can better almost every aspect of your life; however, a few of the areas that we specifically target at Wilderman Medical Clinic, include exercise for neck pain, knee pain, foot/ankle pain, shoulder pain, wrist pain, hip pain, fibromyalgia, and lower back pain.

Electrotherapy for Pain Relief and Healing

Looking for alternative treatments to relieve pain or aid in injury recovery?

Our electrotherapy services, including TENS, Ultrasound, Low-Level Laser, and IFC, provide non-invasive options to promote healing and alleviate pain. TENS machines, in particular, offer versatile pain relief for various chronic conditions and can be easily used at home with proper guidance from our Kinesiologist.

Conditions Treated with Electrotherapy:

  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Fibromyalgia

Please note that these services are not covered by OHIP but are covered by most third-party insurance plans and WSIB. For those without insurance, Jonathan’s fees are competitively priced to ensure accessibility for all patients.
