Our treatment philosophy is based on quality, one-on-one, patient to Doctor of Physical Therapy care in order to expedite your recovery time and return your attention to what matters most to you. All Physical Treatment Sessions are with a Doctor of Physical Therapy and can include but are not limited to the following:
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on physical therapy technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
Dry needling involves a thin filiform needle that penetrates the skin and stimulates underlying myofascial trigger points and muscular and connective tissues. The needle allows a physical therapist to target tissues that are not manually palpable.
Physical therapists use dry needling with the goal of releasing or inactivating trigger points to relieve pain or improve range of motion. Dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, and normalizes dysfunctions of the motor end plates, the sites at which nerve impulses are transmitted to muscles. This can help speed up the patient's return to active rehabilitation.
Soft Tissue Mobilization
Soft tissue mobilization is when your physical therapist uses his or her hands to push, pull and knead your muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves in precise ways to help bring you pain relief and return you to functionality.
Joint mobilization is the careful use of skilled graded forces to move a joint in a desired direction. Unlike stretching of a muscle joint mobilization is specific to the capsule of the joint itself. Gliding of the joint is usually used to improve motion and normalize joint function. Joint mobilization also has the added benefit of controlling pain.
Therapeutic exercises refers to a wide range of physical activities that focuses on restoring and maintaining strength, endurance, flexiblity, stability and balance. The goal of therapeutic exercises is to return an injured patient to a fully functioning, pain-free state.
Pilates for Rehabilitation
Pilates is an important component of injury rehabilitation. Pilates exercises are used in rehabilitation to enhance and normalize muscle recruitment, identify faulty movement patterns and work towards efficient movement patterns, enhance segmental spinal stabilization, improve mobility and stability, improve postural alignment and awareness and to restore shoulder and hip movements.
