Goals and Benefits:Our main goal is to diagnose your condition and treat your symptoms in the most effective and efficient way possible. This may include: increased functional range of motion, decreased pain, improvement in stability and balance, improvement to endurance and athletic performance, increased joint mobility, reduction in adhesions/connective tissue/scar tissue, and overall better health. Now accepting insurance* from the following networks:
- And several others that are not listed
Therapeutic Trigger Point Dry Needling
Use of a monofilament needle to penetrate tissue (skin, connective and muscular) to treat trigger points (tightness in the muscle fibers often referred as knots). Dry needling refers to the use of a needle without medication.
Soft tissue mobilization
A type of manual therapy (where a physical therapist will use his/her hands) to treat soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments). This type of mobilization can improve mobility and strength.
Trigger point massage
A type of manual therapy (where a physical therapist will use his/her hands) to provide relief in tight muscle fibers.
- Effleurage – type of massage that uses circular strokes to broad areas of the connective and muscle tissue
- Petrissage – type of massage that uses kneading to help release connective and muscle tissue
A type of manual therapy that uses various grades of forces (I-V) to move a joint into various ranges of motion. The technique is used to improve mobility of the joint and improve joint function throughout the whole range of motion.
Also referred to as neural “flossing.” Specific movement patterns are used to stretch the nerves to allow for full movement and mobility.
Cranial sacral myofascial release
A type of release that aids in mobility in the connective tissue from the head to the low back.
Cupping is a type of soft tissue release where a physical therapist will place a cup directly onto the skin which creates a vacuum or suction. This technique is used to release connective tissue, scarring, and muscle knots.
The most common forms of electrical stimulation that can be used in physical therapy include:
- Neuromuscular Stimulation (NMES): used to elicits a muscle contraction and the neuromuscular endplate (used for muscle retraining in coordination, rhythm and strength).
- Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS): used for pain relief
- Interferential Electrical Stimulation (IFC): used for pain relief
An elastic tape used to allow for flexibility while allowing for normal or retraining movement patterns. It can be used for posture, lymphatic drainage, muscle tone, and muscle activation/coordination.
Specific exercises given by a physical therapist to address movement or strength deficits. The exercises are given based on a thorough examination to improve functional activities and general health.
Specific exercises or activities prescribed by a physical therapist to allow for improved communication between the nerves and muscles of the body to enhance movement. Common facilitation is through coordination, balance, muscle timing, and strength.
A treatment approach that a physical therapist will use his/her hands to provide movement in the joints or soft tissue (muscles or tendons) to allow for greater mobility.
