Rehabilitative Care is a targeted site-specific therapy with a defined anticipated goal and outcome. Whether your goal is to decrease pain caused by chronic physical issues, or acute injury, a number of modalities and techniques are used to aid in recovery.
A Trigger Point is a tight area within muscle tissue that can cause referred pain in other areas of the body. Trigger Point Therapy is designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. The result and benefit is releasing constricted areas and relieving pain in the muscle. Most experience a significant decrease in pain and stiffness after just one treatment.
When injury to soft tissue occurs, pain and inflammation follows. The normal healing response is the formation of fibrous, or scar tissue in and around the injured area. Soft tissue mobilization works specifically on the muscle, ligament, tendon and fascia to increases blood flow and reduces inflammation and increase healing.
Is a general term that refers to techniques that attempt to retrain the neuromuscular system to function properly. Certain patterns of communication between muscles and nerves allow people to move and perform simple everyday tasks like climbing stairs. These normal patterns can become disrupted by injuries. Neuromuscular re education helps to re-establish those normal patterns in injured people.
Hot stone therapy melts away muscle tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. Cold stone therapy decreases muscle spasms, pain and inflammation. Sometimes used in contrast, alternating hot and cold stones stimulates the blood vessels to dilate in the tissue, perfusing them with fresh blood and nutrients, which is essential in the healing process.
Joint Mobilization is a manual technique used to increase movement and decrease pain in the joints of the body. The Joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles are loosened up to reduce the pain and restrictive movement.
