We evaluate and treat the whole body to help you eliminate your symptoms, pain and limited function. Assessment of postural alignment, global and local movement and three-dimensional connective tissue mobility is performed. The same symptoms may have different mechanical origins and they need a very individualized treatment approach.
People with the same complaint of hip or neck pain may have very different restrictions and therefore the need to treat the problem is very unique.
Physical Therapy utilizes a number of advanced manual therapy techniques. During the initial evaluation we may isolate the area in your joints, muscles, connective tissue that are restricted and tight.
The hands-on techniques we use to release and mobilize the immobile areas may include:
- Joint mobilization
- Advanced Myofascial Release (John Barnes, PT)
- Muscle Energy Techniques
- Cranio-Sacral Therapy
- Neural Mobilization
Everyone will be prescribed a very individualized follow up treatment/home program specific to your body needs including:
- Proper posture and body biomechanics for injury prevention and energy conservation
- Flexibility Training
- Strength Training
- Muscle Re-education
- Balance/Coordination Training
You will be also educated on easy and simple self-treatment techniques to help you rebalance and restore your body. We can not emphasize enough the importance of self- treatment as a powerful tool and long term guarantee of well-being.
