Manual Therapy

Using an osteopathic approach that emphasizes the interrelationships between structure and function of the body through the use of manual and manipulative therapy. In conjuction with the osteopathic approach, Norwegian and Australian mobilization techniques, New Zeland mobilization with movement approaches, and myofascial release, and various specific chriopractic techniques are utilzed as well.

Strain Counter Strain

A passive postional procedure that places the body in a position of greatest comfort, thereby relieving pain by reduction and arrest of inappropriate proprioceptor activity that maintains somatic dysfunction. It can assist in the treatment of acute and chronic pain, post-op pain, and neurological pain. It can be safely used on all age groups and populations including pediatrics, pregnancy, and geriatrics. It is used in conjuction with myofascial release, exercise, modalities, and manual therapy.

Kinesio Taping

A rehabilitative technique that was developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase in the mid 1970’s, that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscle and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy. The tape, which is latex free, can be used on all populations ranging from pediatrics to geriatrics. It can be used to treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological, lymphatic, and other medical conditions.

Electrical Stimulation

This modality is the use of electrical current applied to the body through electrodes to create a therapeutic effect on the body such as pain relief, swelling and inflammation reduction, muscle strengthening, and facilitating healing of wounds. The types of currents that are most commonly used are Interferential and High Volt current. Interferential current is applied by placing four electrodes around the area of pain or discomfort. This is proposed to be the most comfortable current due to the low amplitude that is delivered through the skin. This type of current is well suited for pain control through the stimulation of nerve fibers in the skin. High Volt current uses a one way current that causes a decreased skin resistance making the current comfortable and easy to tolerate. This wave form is frequently used for reduction of swelling and inflammation, relaxation of muscles, and increasing local blood circulation.

Hivamat

Is a Deep Oscillation Therapy® revolutionary therapeutic device that treats swelling, relieves soft tissue pain and helps an injury recover faster.

Functional Dry Needling

Is an effective treatment for acute and chronic pain, rehabilitation from injury, and even pain and injury prevention, with very few side effects. This technique is unequaled in finding and eliminating neuromuscular dysfunction that leads to pain and functional deficits.

Blood Flow Restriction

Blood flow restriction is a game-changing injury recovery therapy that is producing dramatically positive results, such as diminishing atrophy and loss of strength from disuse and non-weight bearing after injuries, increases strength with only 30% loads, increases hypertrophy with only 30% loads, improving muscle endurance in 1/3 the time, improves muscle protein synthesis in the elderly, as well as, improves strength and hypertrophy after surgery , muscle activation and increases growth hormone responses.

Ultrasound

Therapy that is the use of sound waves above the range of human hearing to treat injuries like muscle strains or runner’s knee. This particular therapy has had great strides in musculoskeletal medicine since the 1950s.

Mechanical Traction

Uses an intermittent or static format to either the cervical or lumbar spine at a specific level to help decompress the disc, separate the joint surfaces and/or the surrounding soft tissue. This then allows for decreased compression on the spinal nerve root or facet joint. It can also be used to decrease muscle spasm, stretch soft tissue or exert a centripetal force on a disc by spinal elongation without joint surface separation.
