Dry Needling/Bio-Medical Acupuncture

Dry Needling is the use of acupuncture needles for treating myofascial trigger points or more commonly called “knots”. Dry needling helps to re-set the tone of the muscle and relieve pain and discomfort. Dry needling has also been found to be effective in treating inflammation by reducing inflammatory markers and improving circulation to the area being treated. It is highly effective in treating both acute and chronic conditions. Learn More!

 

Active Release Technique (ART)

Active Release Technique (ART) is one of the leading soft tissue techniques available for treating muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. It is commonly used by many professional teams as the soft tissue treatment for their athletes. The purpose of ART is preventing and breaking up dense scar tissue, also called adhesions. When adhesions are present it doesn’t allow proper gliding of soft tissue which leads to reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain.

During treatment the tissue being treated is started in a shortened position, proper contact and tension is applied, and then the patient will either actively or passively perform the specific movement through the tissues full range of motion. This will help to restore proper gliding of the soft tissue leading to increased range of motion, increased strength, and reduction in pain. Learn More!

 

Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab (FAKTR)/ Instrumented Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)

Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab (FAKTR), similar to graston, is an Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) technique that uses a stainless steel instrument to break up adhesions, improve tissue strength/function and reduce chronic inflammation. The use of FAKTR stimulates the production of fibroblast which facilitates the production and realignment of collagen. FAKTR also creates an acute inflammation response which helps to stimulate healing of chronic injuries and reduce inflammation, as well as being effective at reducing pain and improving pain free range of motion. Learn More!

 

Custom Foot Orthotics

Properly fitting Orthotics can be effective at alleviating pain associated with conditions of the foot, knee, hip, low back, and on up the chain by improving function at the feet. The feet are the foundation which we stand and walk on. If there is poor mechanics at the feet it can cause a chain reaction causing dysfunction in other areas of the body.  Our orthotics are made by Xtreme Footwerks, whose licensed pedorthist has extensive experience in orthotic fabrication and modification, as well as foot and ankle biomechanics. They analyze series of pictures of all angles of the foot and ankle, video of gait, motion induced ink pedograph, and a foam casting to make a truly custom orthotic for your needs. 

 

Kinesio tape (RockTape)

RockTape Fascial Movement Taping (FMT) uses elastic tape (kinesiology tape) to improve movement, muscle/joint function, pain, posture, and reduce inflammation. With the skin being the body’s largest sensory organ, using elastic tape provides the body with constant information throughout the day. By putting the individual in the posture or movement you want to achieve then applying tape, when they deviate from the posture or movement they will feel the tape pull on the skin and be able to correct their posture or movement.

RockTape (kinesio tape) is also beneficial at helping to reduce pain and inflammation by decompressing the area allowing for increased blood flow and lymphatic drainage. As well as providing a constant stimulation to the skin, this helps to beat out the pain response to the brain.
