    • Capnography

      This is the monitoring of breathing patterns (particularly the quantity of carbon dioxide in a breath) of a client using a capnograph machine connected to a computer. There is evidence to support a link between abnormal breathing patterns and musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. During assessment or treatment of a client’s condition, the therapist may notice certain abnormalities in breathing pattern (either through physical assessment or subjective assessment) and may recommend a capnography assessment in an effort to determine if it is having a negative effect on the recovery of a person’s injury. This process requires the client to simply wear nasal prongs which are connected to the capnograph machine. The machine reads the client’s breathing pattern which is displayed on the computer monitor for both the client and therapist to see. If there is an irregularity present in the breathing pattern, specific retraining using techniques on the capnograph is recommended. Often, retraining the client’s breathing pattern to that of a more normal one can greatly improve pain levels and assist with recovery.

      Stroke Rehabilitation

      The therapists at Impact Physiotherapy and Performance have specific training in assisting patients with their physical recovery after stroke. This training includes treatment using the Neurodevelopmental Treatment approach (NDT). The NDT approach consists of facilitating muscle control and strength on the affected side of the body using weight-bearing activity and specific hands-on therapist cueing techniques. Through these techniques, functional activities are progressed to help work towards patient specific goals (e.g., sitting unsupported, standing, transferring from bed to chair or into a vehicle, walking, or climbing stairs). If the client requires 2-person assistance, our physiotherapist assistant is trained in the NDT methods and capable of assisting the physiotherapist with treatment. After a stroke, the body’s cardiovascular (CV) system is deconditioned and so it is important to re-condition this system through specific exercise as well. Here at the clinic we have two exercise bikes and a treadmill which we will often have clients use to improve their CV endurance (if they are able to transfer with minimal help). An effort is always made to coordinate with the rest of the health-care team involved in the client’s rehabilitation (e.g., occupational therapy, speech therapy, nursing, PSW, etc.) to assist the client to fullest extent. Depending on the client’s situation, a home visit may even be made to assess the client in their home environment to better determine their current functional needs (e.g., transfers from bed to chair using an assistive pole).
