Functional Movement Assessment

Functional Movement Assessments allow the doctor to systematically find the cause of symptoms, not just the source

By logically breaking down dysfunctional patterns and diagnosing their root causes as either a mobility problem (more movement is needed) or a stability problem (less movement is needed), clinicians can clearly match their intervention to the main problem of the patient.

This model efficiently integrates the concepts of altered motor control, the neurodevelopmental perspective, and regional interdependence into musculoskeletal practice.

Custom Orthotics

Our foot scanner leverages technology to determine if your arches are contributing to your pain

Scanning your feet is an important tool for uncovering how our arches are interacting with the ground below us. Our feet are our foundation upon which our body rests, and the interface between us and the ground beneath.

Collapsed arches and excessive pronation can negatively impact the alignment of our ankles, knees, hips, pelvis, shoulders, and spine. Orthotic use in combination with targeted exercises shore up deficiencies in our gait and posture, reducing wear and tear and improving whole body alignment. 

Myofascial Release Technique

Myofascial Release treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascial, and nerves

These problems are known as repetitive use injuries and are commonly associated with desk workers, manual labourers, and athletes. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly.

During treatment, the clinician uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining specific directional pressure-assisted with the movement of the patient's body.

"I was pleasantly surprised to find Dr. Ouellette had multiple methods of healing that helped me greatly.

Having struggled with chronic pain and cervical spine issues for more than 30 years, I was pleasantly surprised to find Dr. Ouellette had multiple methods of healing that helped me greatly. He did far more than traditional chiropractic manipulation, and I received a tremendous amount of relief clearly due to his knowledge. I’m sad to be moving off island away from Dr. Ouellette’s excellent care. He is a wonderful addition to Island Chiropractic."
