MEDICAL GAIT & ORTHOTIC ANALYSIS
If you experience discomfort when you walk, visit a Canyon Ranch certified athletic trainer for a complete biomechanical assessment of your feet and legs, including a gait analysis and foot scan. Foot Doctor custom orthotics may be recommended as a noninvasive treatment of foot-related problems such as knee, hip and back pain. They also may be helpful in treating conditions such as bunions, corns, hammertoes, sore arches, plantar fasciitis, sore ankles, shin splints and more.

MUSCULOSKELETAL & JOINT ASSESSMENT
Learn to use the body you were born with more efficiently and comfortably. A physical therapist evaluates your muscle length, strength, posture and alignment. Learn therapeutic exercises that help you improve functional strength and posture, recover from injury or surgery, reduce chronic pain, or rehabilitate chronic neurological or orthopedic conditions. If you’ve been told to just live with it, or you think you should be better by now, try this. A home exercise program and self-correcting techniques will be provided if appropriate.

Bone loss (osteopenia or osteoporosis) puts both men and women at risk for spine and hip fractures, a common cause of late-life pain and immobility. Your physician evaluates your bone mineral density using DEXA technology and then explains your results and offers recommendations. For women, this can help in making decisions about hormone-replacement therapy, other medications and exercise programs. Younger women at risk for osteoporosis because of chronic dieting, compulsive over-exercising, family history or low dietary calcium can use these test results as a baseline in overall health planning. Men at risk, smokers, and people over 60 should also consider this service – at-risk individuals receive valuable advice about exercise and calcium replacement.

SHOCKWAVE & LASER THERAPY
Shockwave therapy is a series of sound waves applied to an injured site on the body – a nonsurgical treatment that can help relieve musculoskeletal pain or injury. The sound therapy breaks up any scarring that has penetrated tendons, ligaments and other soft tissues in the body, and reactivates the body’s natural healing process. Laser may be combined with shockwave to enhance the healing effect – it is noninvasive and nonsurgical, with virtually no side effects. A Musculoskeletal & Joint Assessment is required prior to treatment. Number of Shockwave and/or Laser Therapy sessions varies according to need.
