Arthritis Management

Arthritis treatment focuses on reducing the inflammation and pain as well as improving joint function. It includes manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, electrical stimulation (including Iontophoresis), laser and ultrasound treatment.

Electrical Stimulation

It is a modality that uses a beneficial effect of low level electric current on the human body. It relieves pain, strengthens muscles, treats hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and is used to deliver anti-inflammatory or pain-relieving medications through the skin directly to painful areas

Graston Techniques

The Graston Technique is a form of manual therapy known as soft-tissue instrument-assisted mobilization. A therapist uses instruments with a specialized form of gentle massage/scraping the skin. The therapy is designed to detect and treat areas of scar tissue and adhesions in muscles, tendons and ligaments, which lead to pain and dysfunction.

Kinesiotaping

Kinesio Taping is a technique designed to work with the body’s natural healing process while providing rehabilitative support and stability to muscles and joints. It can be used to decrease pain, reduce inflammation, and relax overused or tired muscles.

Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses intense beams of light of specific wavelengths to help reduce pain related to your injury. Low-level lasers send cold light through skin layers to soft tissue to stimulate blood flow and cell metabolism.

LSVT® BIG

LSVT BIG therapy is an exercise program which includes repetitive, exaggerated movements that help to counteract the slow movement that is one of the main motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. It can also benefit patients, whose motor function has been affected by other conditions, including stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, cerebral palsy and Down syndrome.

Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression (Traction)

This is a type of motorized traction to help relieve back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine taking pressure off the spinal discs and joints, increasing the space between them, decreasing muscle spasms and relieving the pressure off the irritated nerve roots.

Strain Counterstrain

Strain Counterstrain is a gentle soft tissue manipulation revolutionary technique, which is effective in treating pain, limitations in strength and range of motion, allows a therapist to painlessly “release” muscle and connective tissue spasm from all areas and systems of the human body. Because Strain Counterstrain yields lasting results and has no side effects it has numerous applications in the rehabilitative setting.

Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular rehabilitation therapy is a form of physical therapy that uses specialized exercises that result in gaze and gait stabilization. Most VRT exercises involve head movement, and head movements are essential in stimulating and retraining the vestibular system.

Work Conditioning

Work conditioning is an individualized program designed to prepare the injured worker for returning to work by providing strengthening, stabilizing, and conditioning necessary to enable the worker to progress to actual work simulation (Work Hardening) and then return to work.
