Treatments

Manual Therapy

Manual therapy uses skilled specific techniques to help treat musculoskeletal pain by increasing range of motion (ROM), improving flexibility, increasing joint stability, decreasing inflammation, and improving overall function. 

  • Soft tissue mobilization - Applied pressure helps muscles to relax, breaks up scar tissue, decreases inflammation, and alleviate pain.
  • Joint mobilization/manipulation - Measured movements to improve joint alignment, increase motion, and reduces pain by loosening up the soft tissue surrounding that particular joint.                                                    

Therapeutic Exercises

Therapeutic exercises are a wide range of exercises that focus on restoring and maintaining flexibility, strength, stability, balance, & endurance. These customized exercises are prescribed in order to correct the underlying impairment, prevent future injuries, and optimize your overall health. 

  • Agility Training
  • Balance (static & dynamic) and Coordination Training
  • Body Mechanics Training
  • Neuromuscular Re-Education
  • Postural Stabilization
  • ROM Exercises and Soft Tissue Stretching
    • Active ROM (AROM) - Exercises performed by the individual without any assistance. 
    • Active Assisted ROM (AAROM) - Motions that require both voluntary efforts of the individual and external aid including using another body part to help facilitate the movement or assistance from the Physical Therapist.
    • Passive ROM (PROM) - Stretching and increasing mobility of a particular joint(s) performed by the Physical Therapist. 
  • Strength and Joint Stabilization exercises

Kinesio Taping Method and McConnell Taping Technique

Two different taping techniques with the same goal of reducing pain during functional activities or sports. Kinesio Tape provides neuromuscular feedback that can either inhibit or facilitate particular muscles while McConnell Tape focuses more on the joint/muscle alignment to decrease pain..  

Gait Training

Gait dysfunctions are "abnormal" walking patterns that can be due to neurological, vestibular, or musculoskeletal issues. Physical Therapists can assess the way you walk and further test the underlying issue. Improvements in gait will lead to overall safety and decrease pain. Also, gait training is necessary for those who are new with using an assistive device (crutches, single point cane, front wheel walkers, four wheel walkers) whether it is after surgery or enhancing your safety around the community.
