Recommendations for a good physiotherapist/chiro in mississauga

Not sure if i am looking for a good physio or chiro. I have been having shoulder pain from last couple of days. it feels like the pain is in my shoulder blade muscles since it hurts on certain angles.

I have been to multiple chiros and they force me into their "Subluxation" plan which has never helped me. So could you guys recommend me a good clinic for my shoulder pain? Should i look for a physio or chiro?

It can be confusing what type of therapy to seek. While good chiropractors have helped many people, I would always choose a physio therapist and over a chiropractor.

I posted my thoughts here: neck-pain-physio-chiropractor-2201687/#p29484960
Basically, IMO, while there are many good chiropractors, I fundamentally do not believe in spinal manipulation which a material part of what chiropractors learn. So even if the issue I have does not relate to spinal manipulation, why would I go see a chiropractor instead of a physio therapist.

Once you have resolved your current issue, long-term, regular hanging from a bar is very very good for long-term shoulder health.

Dr. Kirsch is an orthopedic surgeon, has written on shoulder pain management. He believes hanging exercises can resolve the vast majority of shoulder problems without resorting to surgery.

You have bursitis. They call it the old folks condition. Google it. TONS of info on this condition. Really not much you can do except icing and some stretching exercises. If it really hurts, chronic pain, and cant even bear lifting arm up out in front of you from 45 to 135 degrees angle then you may require surgery. An ultrasound is required to check all tendons and bursa sac in shoulder. Bursa sac is fluid filled sac that sits underneath the clavicle bone and on the top of shoulder blade where your humerus bone sits in the socket. If this sac becomes inflamed or liquid decreases over time as you age, you get the pain you describe in the shoulder muscles (deltoid and bicep tendons). Also, calcification of shoulder tendons can also cause similar discomfort. Again, ultrasound is the tool.

Trying to figure out who to see is the first step and then you need to find a actual good practitioner.

Chiropractors, Registered massage therapists, physiotherapists, Osteotherapath?

Which one does one choose? Added to that some of the "work" for your issue/pain is similar in some cases.

Battleford physiotherapy.
Sorry to bump this. Looking for a good physiotherapist in Mississauga. Do you have personal experience with battleford?

I've pulled my left hamstring twice and want to figure out why/stretching routines to make the hamstring more flexible. I hope some one on one time with a professional will help.

Peter at Thrive Physio is amazing but he is located at 385 The West Mall, Etobicoke.

I think you should visit your GP first. maybe he/she will recommend a good physio or chiro based on your condition.
I have visited many physios and chiros (most of em for the arthritis pain and after an accident) and some of em were good but some treatments made no difference.

From my experience, I would say; just picking the physio with the best reviews and reputation in your location may not work. A good physio for me or someone else can be bad for you. Finding one that works for you can be tricky. I think the trial and error method is the best way. So use these recommendations and choose a clinic with good facilities and qualified physiotherapists. If that doesn't work, pick another one.
I would recommend [removed] in Mississauga. They have highly skilled staffs and the clinic quality is good.

Thanks!

Dr. Bork Dixie Road.

Many years ago I was a chronic back sufferer. For me she is the best. Solved my problems when others could not.
