Procedures

legsThe following procedures, combined with personalized treatment plans, assist in the healing process and accelerate recovery times.

Manual Therapy

Manual Therapy is a very powerful tool in a rehabilitation process. Manual therapy is performed with the therapist’s hands, not with any machines.

Manual therapy includes:

Soft Tissue Mobilization
Techniques to degrade scar, decrease pain and increase tissue elasticity.

Joint Mobilization
A variety of techniques involving the application of pressure to facilitate an increase in motion and/or proper alignment of a joint (spinal or extremity). Mobilization uses slow, measured movements to twist, pull or push bones and joints into position. Mobilization can help loosen tight tissues around a joint and help with flexibility and alignment.

Muscle Energy Techniques
The selective use of passive and active soft tissue tension to facilitate an increase in motion and/or proper alignment of a joint (spinal or extremity).

Myofascial Release
The selective use of pressure and passive tissue tension to facilitate tissue relaxation, flexibility and relieve pain.

Biofeedback

Visual, tactile or auditory feedback to facilitate an improvement in muscular contraction, relaxation and coordination.

Therapeutic Exercise

Specialized programs, individualized to the individual, designed to address specific strength, flexibility, endurance, balance, proprioceptive deficits.
