Treatments

Functional Dry Needling is a skilled intervention that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. It has been shown to increase blood perfusion of the treated area which can increase healing rate, as well as improving range of motion and muscular tension

Graston Technique is an instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) using specially designed metal instruments to stimulate muscles, tendons, fascia, ligaments, and the nervous system to help increase healing rate and decrease pain through desensitization of nerves and increased blood flow to injured or painful tissues.

Spinal Manipulative Therapy (SMT) is used to stimulate joints to increase range of motion, decrease feelings of stiffness, and allow for more pain-free motion. Many patients experience immediate drops in pain, allowing for more exercise and movement to be performed which can further increase healing rate.

Myofascial Mobilization is a form of manual therapy where hands-on techniques are performed on your muscles, ligaments, and fascia with the goal of decreasing pain with movement, decreasing tension and stiffness, and increasing muscle function. Many times this will be performed with movement or with sport-specific exercises for a more specific application.

Therapeutic CuppingĀ is used to increase blood flow to painful tissues, treat cutaneous nerves, and reduce sensitivity to movement. The suction of the cup pulls blood into the area, and moving the cups around helps to reduce pain by giving a light massage to the skin and underlying muscles. It is a great intervention to reduce pain with movement.

Then we will do a movement screen that involves specific movements relating to your injury, as well as general body movements like squatting,single-leg strength, and shoulder mobility to help identify possible areas of weakness that may be contributing to your pain or may have been the cause to the problem in the first place.
Lastly, we will make sure you understand what is going on, and the steps to get you back on track. This will be followed by your first treatment and exercise prescription.
