The very best way to learn about vertigo treatment is by consulting an expert. Frequently, the signs of vertigo are disregarded or self treated for far too long and therapy becomes a difficult take. By recognising symptoms a targeted history and vestibular exam can quickly pinpoint the problem.
The staff at Healthview are excited to announce the addition of a very specialized piece of exercise/rehab equipment. The Alter G is a game changer in Rehabilition and Fitness. The technology was first developed for NASA that was later re-worked from creating gravity effects to overcoming them.
Our interdisciplinary setting is well suited to incorporate the Alter G. In fact, when costs drop we foresee this as a standard component of base equipment rather than a luxury in many centres like ours.
We will be using the Alter G for rehabilition and fitness, and work the costs into our therapy sessions. In addition, we will make available packages of sessions for those who are post treatment who want to continue on the AlterG, as well as for those who want to use the machine for general fitness and/or weight loss.
The Alter G can be used for so many conditions as well as complement fitness programs. We recomend you visit healthview.ca and/or our altergwpg.ca site for more information.
FOUR EASY STRETCHES FOR GOLFERS
Several exercises to get you started this spring. Naturally be careful and gradual if you have been sedentary for the last little while. Don't feel you need to follow the program exactly.
This is a gradual increase so for most the increase will be manageable. For those who have been active you can add this to your current program.
If you have concerns ask one of our professionals for a modified program or join one of our classes. Finally, uncertainty about current health status should be addressed first. Try the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire below and or see a qualified professional.
Good Luck and Have Fun !

How Does Rock Tape help?:
Two weeks ago we added a V-actor head to our already popular shockwave machine. Our standard head is called the D-actor and both tools can be used as a stand-alone treatment or together. In addition, these tools are often used as an adjunct in a general treatment plan. Patients have been giving us extremely positive feedback since our shockwave machine arrived 7 months ago. We have done hundreds of treatments and applied over 2 million pulses to date. If you have shoulder, elbow and/or foot pain, try shockwave.
