By WIN Provider: Dr. Ernie Bagnulo, Chiropractor
WIN altra Health Clinic offers many cutting edge treatment options. The WINBACK TECAR Therapy is a great example of this. We are one of few clinics in Ontario offering this therapeutic treatment and Dr. Ernie Bagnulo, our clinic owner and chiropractor, received specialized training in this therapy.
TECAR therapy is a widely used therapy in Europe and is now gaining traction in North America. TECAR stands for Transfer Energy Capacitative and Resistive. It is a radio frequency that has various uses from muscle, ligament, tendon and joint rehab, and also includes collagen repair for aesthetic purposes.
