Spinal Manipulation/Mobilization

We utilize this type of treatment with the goal of reducing pain and improving motion in the spine. We may use a variety of different techniques depending on what YOU need. We’ll explain each technique prior to treatment so you understand the goal of each hands-on intervention. Additional methods of treatment coupled with spinal manipulation/mobilization typically improve long-term results. Our expertise in this area will make you feel comfortable and yields therapeutic results.

 

Soft Tissue Mobilization

We use this type of treatment with the goal of reducing your symptoms and improving motion in the specific area of the body being treated. We utilize a variety of techniques to enhance your mobility. We may incorporate active movements during mobilization to improve the effectiveness of each treatment. Additional methods of treatment coupled with soft tissue mobilization typically improve long-term results.

 

Pain Neuroscience

Have you ever wondered why you hurt? It’s a pretty complex question and the answer can sometimes be just as difficult to understand. We’ll help you better understand why you’re in pain. Sometimes, we hurt due to a combination of many different factors. We can help walk you through each factor and how to address these in order to begin living a pain-free life.

 

Neuromuscular Retraining

We utilize this type of treatment to create new movement patterns or refine previously learned patterns. This incorporates the saying “perfect practice makes perfect performance.” We strive to improve the efficiency that your brain and nerves communicate with your muscles to improve your overall movement.

 

We utilize a gradual progression of customized exercises to improve the tolerance of your tissues to stretch or contract. This may include strengthening, range of motion, flexibility/mobility training, and endurance.

Therapeutic Exercise

 

We strive to improve your ability to do your daily activities like household chores, yard work, playing with your children, or improving your ability to do your job. This type of treatment focuses on improving your ability to perform these more challenging activities in order to make each task easier.

Functional Training

 

Are you feeling lost on how to get back to playing your favorite sport or getting back to fun activities? Let us help guide you! We’re experts in strength and conditioning and getting you back on the court, field, course, or any activity that you find joyful.

Return to Sport/Activity

 

Sometimes, we have specific triggers for our pain. If you’re not sure, we can help you figure them out. Then, we can make modifications to improve your ability to do the things you love.

Activity Modification

 

This includes electrical stimulation (E-stim), ultrasound, heat, cryotherapy (ice), and taping. These are typically used to provide short-term symptom relief. We will discuss which of these treatments may be best for your recovery during your first visit.

Fitness/Wellness Programs

Wondering how to exercise with a safe and smart program after your formal rehabilitation had ended?

Do you feel unsteady?

Do you feel like you might fall?

Have you fallen in the past 6 months?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, then you should have a balance assessment. We will perform specific tests to assess your balance and determine your risk for falls. We can then discuss treatment options to improve your balance, your confidence and decrease your risk for falls in the future.

Balance and Fall Risk Assessments
