Pain Management. Wellness. Sports Medicine & Injuries. These are the major services being offered at Intercare, an international healthcare service center which was founded way back October 1993.
Intercare integrated different disciplines such as physical therapy, chiropractic, myotherapy, acupuncture, pilates and sports taping and came up with a treatment program which are patient focused, complete and comprehensive. They’ve already provided half a million services over 250,000 patients in 20 years which gave them clinical expertise and experience and help people to gain optimum functionality.
Last week, I was invited at their clinic to attend their first ever blogger’s night. Dr. Martin Camara explained to us their services and its importance to athletes and other fitness enthusiasts. We were given the opportunity to try their services and we all got very excited. We were divided into four groups and I became part of group number 4 together with Ulikblog Runner Banjo & Singing Dad Art. We tried Physical Therapy, Myotherapy, Ismart & Rocktape services.
When I tried their PT services, I told them that my legs usually hurt after a long run. They told me it could be shin splints. The doctor examined my legs and had it ultrasound. He also asked me to squat and then he took a picture of me. He then showed me the “imbalance” of my right leg when it shake a little after I did the squat. He asked me to go to the stretching room and had my legs “rocktaped”. The doctor told me that from his initial assessment, my right leg is more rigid while my left leg is more flexible causing the imbalance when I run. They asked me to come back to be sure and to know what really causes the pain and have it thoroughly examined.
Ulikblog Runner Banjo tried the Myoteraphy, while Singing Dad Art did the Ismart, and we all got “Rocktaped”:
Intercare offers the following services:
Through Chiropractic treatment, a natural, drugless branch of the healing arts, conditions that affect our bones and muscles, ligaments and cartilage, and even the nerves are treated. This age old method also costs less than some conventional modes of treatment.
It involves the insertion of special needles into specific anatomical points on the body. Acupuncture is recognized by the World health Organization and National Institute of Health in the United States for the treatment of at least 44 conditions.
A highly specialized field that integrates the wisdom of several disciplines and employs complimentary techniques such as heat, myotheraphy, and monitored exercise programs.
Graston Technique incorporates the use of patented stainless-steel instruments to aid the clinician in the detection and treatment of soft-tissue dysfunction.
As a complement to our overall wellness approach, Intercare offers the service of professional counselors who will assist you with stress management and emotional stress relief methods.
Sports Taping (Rock Tape)
RockTape is a special kind of tape known as kinesiology tape. First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, today kinesiology tape is used by practitioners throughout the world to treat injuries and improve sports performance.
While the use of kinesiology is often associated with athletes such as Serena Williams, Kerri Walsh and Lance Armstrong, the reality is that RockTape is effective for the treatment of a wide variety of problems, not just sports injuries
Rocktape is used for achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, jumpers knee (PFS), ACL/MCL issues, rotator cuff, groin and hamstring pulls, lower back issues, shin splints & tennis and golf elbow.
