Physical Therapy Services
Manual Therapy encompasses a multitude of skills that our therapists have received advanced training for. Manual therapy includes spinal mobilization and manipulation, joint mobilization, myofascial release, and muscle energy technique. Manual therapy is most successful in an unhurried, one on one environment, and by an experienced practitioner.
Functional Dry Needling
Dry needling speeds healing and relieves pain by decreasing muscle hypertonicity, increasing joint range of motion, and correcting movement dysfunction through releasing a trigger point adhesion. Dry needling creates a twitch response which is a localized, reflexive response of a dysfunctional area. This twitch response returns the muscle to a normal state by releasing inflammatory chemicals from the trigger point and restoring blood flow to the area.

Redcord is a suspension system that is used to offload painful and dysfunctional areas of your body so that you can successfully perform and exercise a joint(s) that may otherwise be impossible without compensation. Neurac is the physical therapy version of Redcord which requires advanced training. This treatment is individually tailored for many different abilities and diagnoses, from patients with dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system to amateur and professional athletes who want to improve/restore function, coordination and performance. Neurac can also be used in treatment of issues related to neck, back, SI joint, shoulder, hip and knee as well as core stabilization and balance.
Blood Flow Restriction Training
Blood Flow Restriction Training (BFR), is a safe and effective training technique used to increase muscular size and strength using a FDA-approved tourniquet system. Weight training with BFR can recreate the stimulus of heavy resistance training except very low weight is used during the exercise. Growth in muscle tissue can occur in as little as two weeks. BFR is great for post-surgical patients who have not been able to regain muscle strength with conventional physical therapy or athletes looking to increase power and strength.
