Specialized Physical Therapy Treatments

Patients who use physical therapy first for spine, shoulder, and knee pain are often successfully treated without imaging or prescription medication use.

Pelvic Health

Millions of men and women suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction which can cause pelvic pain, urinary or fecal incontinence, or coccydynia.

Physical therapy can reduce or eliminate pain, prevent surgery, and eliminate the need for medication in patients with pelvic pain, incontinence, and pregnancy or post-partum issues.

Our pelvic health specialists offer one-on-one pelvic treatments in a discreet and comfortable environment. Our pelvic health therapists have completed advanced training and have achieved their Certification of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy (CAPP) from the Academy of Pelvic Health Physical Therapy.

The CAPP is awarded to therapists who have completed a comprehensive education, training, and testing program for the management of patients with diagnoses of pelvic health dysfunction, such as urinary incontinence and pelvic pain.

Biofeedback

Biofeedback for pelvic floor muscle retraining is a treatment to help patients learn to strengthen or relax their pelvic floor muscles to improve bowel or bladder function and decrease some types of pelvic floor pain. Our pelvic health therapists offer advanced training utilizing the Myotrac biofeedback system.

Dry Needling

Dry needling is a skilled intervention that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments.

It is a technique used to treat dysfunctions in skeletal muscle, fascia, and connective tissue, and to diminish persistent peripheral nociceptive input, and reduce or restore impairments in body structure and function, leading to improved activity and participation.

Manual Therapy

Skilled hand movements intended to move joints in specific directions and at different speeds to produce any or all of the following effects:

  • Improve tissue extensibility
  • Increase range of motion of the joint complex
  • Mobilize or manipulate soft tissues and joints
  • Induce relaxation
  • Change muscle function; modulate pain
  • Reduce soft tissue swelling, inflammation or movement restriction.

Our therapists offer advanced manual therapy techniques including Maitland, McKenzie, Mulligan, and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF).

Rotator Cuff Rehabilitation

Our comprehensive treatment approach includes restoring full shoulder mobility using joint and soft tissue mobilization techniques followed by specific neuromuscular re-education exercises to restore the coordination between the shoulder blade and arm.

Our therapists utilize the most current and valid shoulder treatment concepts through our membership with the American Society of Shoulder and Elbow Therapists.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) enables clinicians to efficiently locate and treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction. IASTM is performed with ergonomically designed instruments that detect and treat scar tissue and fascial restrictions to encourage rapid tissue remodeling and healing.
