Therapeutic Techniques

ptBecause we recognize that each body system is different, our practice integrates multiple therapeutic techniques into your rehabilitation program. In order to accomplish each individual’s goals, whether returning to sports, work, or activities of daily living, our services will be progressive as well as flexible. We create programs to focus on individual needs, and do not force our patients into a “preset program.”Some of the techniques that may be used in your program are:

Myofascial Release Techniques: A soft tissue technique that affects the connective tissue system. Treatment of myofascial dysfunction will enhance movement and flexibility, improve posture and relieve pain.

Mobilization: A soft tissue approach providing movement at the joint surfaces of the spine, arm and leg joints. Pain is decreased and movement is increased with this technique.

Craniosacral Therapy: A non-invasive technique that addresses the restrictions and tensions of the Dura Mater, which is connective tissues that envelops the brain and spinal cord.

Visceral Fascial Release: A gentle manual technique that mobilizes the soft tissue surrounding the internal organs.

Muscle Energy Techniques: A gentle, soft tissue approach to normalize joint motion throughout the pelvis, spine, arms, legs and rib cage.

Neurodevelopmental Training Techniques: Normalizes muscle tone and facilitates quality movement.

Stabilization Techniques: For strengthening of coordinated and integrated functional body movements.

With each program, traditional therapeutic techniques are utilized. However, we also believe in a more functional approach when developing a rehabilitation program. In order to obtain your goals, it is key to exercise all planes of the body, including the frontal, sagittal and transverse planes.

We also feel that it is important to integrate core strengthening exercises, thus offering support to your spine, and upper and lower extremities. We will help you to understand the reasons behind the exercises, and how they will help you achieve your goals.
