Physical therapists work to improve, restore, and maintain movement and activity so that people of all ages can live at an optimal quality of life. Physical therapists are highly effective at providing alternative treatments to avoid or prolong surgery as well as other pain management techniques without the use of prescription medication. Our licensed physical therapists treat patients one-on-one for 60 minutes.
Cupping is an effective way to release trigger points, myofascial adhesions, reduce pain, and reduce swelling. Cupping works to suction soft tissue which allows for increased blood flow and circulation. Cupping can help with lymphatic drainage, scar tissue breakdown, releasing myofascial adhesions, and even migraine relief without prescription medication.
Pilates is a comprehensive way to develop the body through core strength, flexibility, balance / coordination, and mind / body awareness. Pilates uses springs to provide resistance. Pilates emphasizes smooth, controlled movement with concentration and proper breathing for muscle alignment and strengthening. Everyone can benefit from Pilates, regardless of age or activity level. We incorporate Pilates and Pilates equipment for rehab purposes as well as offer private Pilates sessions.
ASTYM® (A-stim) treatment sets the standard for soft tissue therapy. It regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.), and removes unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. This technique is effective for treating tendinitis such as tennis elbow and plantar fasciitis, as well as other soft tissue dysfunctions.
Trigger Point Dry Needling is a valuable treatment used to decrease muscular pain and stiffness. Practitioners use a fine, flexible, and sterile needle (similar to those used for acupuncture) to release shortened bands of muscle tissue known as trigger points. In addition, easing the trigger points may improve flexibility and increase range of motion. This method is often used to treat sports injuries, muscle pain, and even fibromyalgia pain.
Physical Therapy is an effective tool for scoliosis that can help reduce curve progression, delay or prevent surgery, improve posture, and improve lung function. Those with scoliosis have an asymmetric posture. Physical therapy helps identify the asymmetries and strengthen or stretch the appropriate muscles in order to restore an aligned posture. Physical therapy treatments also focus on rib mobility and deep breathing to help with respiratory function, while Pilates facilitates deep breathing and core connected breath work.
