Physical therapy is not just exercise.
When we combine therapeutic treatment with appropriate movement, the body is given the opportunity to heal. We try to make your experience as supportive and comfortable as possible.
We can help if you experience any of the following:
Acute or Chronic Pain
Weakness and Balance Problems
In our clinic we use different types of massage for muscle and fascia release. Fascia is the connective tissue that surrounds and is inside of muscles. It knits us together and it can become tight and hold the body in non-ideal positions.
We perform joint mobilizations to loosen tight joint capsules. Joint capsules are the tissue that surrounds the joint and holds the synovial fluid in. This fluid is what greases the joint and keeps it friction-free. We use Muscle Energy Technique to align the spine. We do visceral manipulation for people with abdominal scars or tension. The viscera are our internal organs. Our organs are held in place by ligaments attached to the back of the internal wall. For different reasons those ligaments can become tight. This can affect mobility of the spine and hips.
Some of our other tools include dry needling to reduce trigger point pain and Graston tools for myofascial and scar release. (Myofascial means muscle and fascia). Because we are located within the El Gancho fitness club, we have access to their weight room and pools for your therapy. Our Therapists have many years of background and continuing education in disorders of spine, shoulders, arms, hips, knees, and ankles along with overuse injuries and chronic pain. We schedule you for 45 minutes with your therapist and then another 15-30 minutes for additional exercise and modalities as needed. Our modalities include: moist heat, ice, electrical stimulation, ultrasound and cold laser.
