Myofascial Release Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure to the myofascial connective tissue in an effort to eliminate pain and restore motion. Trauma, inflammation and surgical procedures can cause myofascial restrictions.
Trigger Point Therapy A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that can cause pain in other parts of the body. Trigger point massage therapy is designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. Receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries.
Cervical/Lumbar Traction Cervical spine traction is used for the short-term treatment of neck pain. It is designed to relieve muscle spasms and nerve compression. This treatment requires intermittent force be applied to the neck in an effort to stretch muscles and soft tissue.
Lumbar traction is the same form of treatment, only for back pain. Intermittent force is applied to the spine to reduce pain associated with muscle spasms.
Lumbar Stabilization It is important to have a stable lumbar spine (or lower back) to avoid pain, dysfunction and disease. The spine needs to stay in normal alignment. To achieve lumbar stabilization, you must stretch and strength the muscles that pull the spine out of alignment and those that hold it in alignment.
Core Strengthening Core strengthening exercises target your abdominal, back and pelvis muscles, strengthening them and making it easier to do many physical activities. Core muscles are what we can most effectively manipulate to stabilize ourselves and move in the various directions we wish to go.
Joint Mobilization Joint mobilization is a technique designed to relieve pain and muscle spasms, and improve flexibility in a specific joint. In this therapy treatment, a joint is moved using small, passive movements. These motions stretch and strengthen the tissue surrounding the joint, thus reducing pain and increasing range of motion.
Post-Surgical Rehabilitation Physical therapy is extremely important after undergoing a surgical produce. By undergoing therapy, a person is able to return to return to their daily, physical activities while protecting the integrity of the surgical repair. It is our goal in post-surgical rehabilitation to get you moving again pain free and safely so as to avoid future injuries.
Muscle Energy Techniques Muscle Energy Techniques is a form of stretching that aids in the strengthening, stretching, and relaxation of muscles (useful for treating muscle cramps) as well as helping a patient to regain correct muscle function and reduce localized oedema.
