Specific Techniques

Manual Therapy

Hands-on treatment to help decrease pain and muscle tension, improve mobility, and increase blood flow.

Manual Therapy is often used for:

  • Soft Tissue Mobilization Procedures
  • Trigger Point Manual Therapy
  • Cervical Traction

Dry Needling

Dry needling uses thin monofilament needles that penetrate the skin and treat muscular trigger points for mobility issues and neuromusculoskeletal pain. Trigger points are tight bands within the muscle fiber that cause tenderness and pain. 

Dry needling can help relieve:

  • Headache
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Thoracic Pain
  • Lateral Epicondylitis
  • Low Back Pain

Taping

Taping is a tool used to decrease pain and provide support without limiting movement. It can also be used in muscular re-education and reducing edema.

Modalities

Modalities are used in the clinic to treat pain, improve circulation, decrease swelling, and can be helpful for mobility issues.

Treatment may include:

  • Electrical Stimulation
  • Functional Electrical Stimulation
  • Ultrasound
  • Laser
  • Infrared
  • Dry Needling

Home Care

We offer outpatient services in the home when appropriate. The home provides a unique environment in which to evaluate the patient’s functional limitations. It is where they need to be able to function on a daily basis. The home also allows the therapist to provide a safety assessment of the house. In the home, the therapist works with the patient and provides training to the family and caregivers.
