Hands on techniques designed to reduce pain and improve tissue and joint mobility and increase relaxation. These techniques include; myofascial release, joint mobilizations, trigger point therapy, massage, cupping, dry needling, Graston Technique and manual stretching.
A manual therapy technique; cupping enhances the release of the interfaces between the neural tissues, fascia, skin, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines and rheumatism.
Dry needling is a skilled manual therapy intervention that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular and connective tissue for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments.
The Graston Technique can increase the rate and amount of blood flow, initiating the healing process of the affected tissues. This manual therapy technique is able to break down the scar tissue and fascia restrictions caused by soft tissue trauma. Therapists are able to reduce patient pain and increase function.
An integral part of manual therapy is the art of following it up with purposeful exercise designed to improve strength, endurance, flexibility, range of motion and function.
Vestibular rehab is an exercise based therapy program used to treat balance and dizziness disorders. It is based on the body's natural ability to compensate for balance problems.
Activities designed to calm or activate the nervous system. Examples are stroke rehabilitation, balance training, coordination activities and neuromuscular taping.
Electrical stimulation of certain parts of the body, causing repeated muscle contractions, improves blood flow, helping repair injured muscles. Those muscles also improve their strength through repeated cycles of contraction and relaxation. E-stim can also “train” muscles to respond to the body's natural signals to contract
