SERVICES

We offer our patients a modern approach to traditional physical rehabilitation. Clinicaly-proven treatments for a variety of wellness-based issues such as musculoskeletal recovery, movement analysis, strength and endurance issues, balance improvement, posture problems and functional retraining. Our physical therapy services are uniquely tailored to each patient to give them a customized approach to improved functionality and recovery.

Manual therapy (or manipulative therapy) is skilled hand movements of joints and soft tissue to improve tissue extensibility; increase range of motion; induce relaxation; mobilize or manipulate soft tissue and joints; modulate pain; and reduce soft tissue swelling, inflammation or restriction. Techniques may include manual traction, massage, mobilization/manipulation and passive range of motion.

Muscle tension can often decrease once joint motion is restored, but many times the spasm will continue to persist. Soft Tissue Mobilization helps relieve muscle tension and spasms by breaking up inelastic or fibrous muscle tissue (myofascial adhesions) such as scar tissue, moving stagnating tissue fluids and relaxing muscle tension.

A modality is any type of electrical, thermal or mechanical energy that causes physiological changes within the body. It is used to relieve pain, improve circulation, decrease swelling and reduce muscle spasm. Pain-relieving modalities include treatments such as electrical stimulation, moist heat, ultrasound, ice and vasocompression.

Medical Therapeutic yoga is a special yoga alternative designed for patients with limited physical abilities and function. Although anyone can benefit from this specialized form of exercise, we offer individualized education, training and oversight from our advanced yoga instructor to provide postural alternatives that result in healthy joint alignment and reduced stress loads to injured regions and areas of degeneration.

Proper nutrition is a critical component needed to maximize the natural healing process within our bodies. We work closely with a team of functional medicine specialists to develop customized dietary programs and strategies for our patients who need them.

Many patients require long-term rehabilitative exercise after discharge. For them, we include detailed physical evaluations to determine their overall health and functional ability, then develop personalized home exercise programs to help them maintain or improve physical strength, flexibility and stamina on their own.

This includes rehabilitation and treatments for all post-surgery orthopedic procedures involving the extremities and spine. We do not treat extensive hand reconstructive surgeries; however, we are happy to provide references to excellent hand reconstruction therapists in our area.

For many patients, acute injuries progress into subacute and chronic stages while they are recovering. When this happens, patients are still experiencing discomfort and are hoping their pain issues resolve on their own. We can successfully help patients with injuries that have been nagging them for long periods of time, help them continue in a positive direction, and restore them back to a healthy and active lifestyle.

This technique uses a “dry” (non-medicated) needle, inserted through the skin directly into the muscle. Dry needling is used with the goal of releasing or “inactivating” painful trigger points or to relax and improve range of motion. Scientific research supports that dry needling is effective for improving pain control, reducing muscle tension and normalizing dysfunctions of the motor end plates – the sites at which nerve impulses are transmitted to muscles. This can help dramatically speed up the patient’s return to active rehabilitation.

Cupping Therapy is a popular and very versatile treatment used to increase range of motion, stimulate lymphatic drainage and to perform deep tissue release on a wide range of muscles. Cupping Therapy is used to soften tight muscles, loosen adhesions, lift connective tissue, increase hydration and blood flow to body tissues, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways

This aggressive soft tissue massage is popular with both athletes and non-athletes alike. Our sports massage therapy focuses on specific areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and aggressive movements. Part of a balanced training regimen, sports massage therapy helps improve flexibility and endurance, reduce fatigue, prevent injuries and prepares your body for maximum performance.

Free annual wellness consultations are available to all current and prior clientele. During this yearly assessment, we’ll review and adjust your personal exercise program to ensure healthy biomechanics and lifestyle changes to help prevent future injury.
