Obtain routine movement screens and examinations, balance assessment, physical performance assessment, chronic management of musculoskeletal conditions, and health and lifestyle promotion. We provide screens for headaches, suspected fractures/dislocations, and compressed/entrapped nerves. We shall coordinate care for emergent cases and/or will refer out to the most appropriate specialist.
Receive in-house specialty care for non-surgical orthopedic conditions, minor sprains and strains including whiplash not needing emergency room visit. Management of orthopedic post-surgical conditions with close coordination with your surgeon.
A study by Mabry and colleagues showed that advanced practice PT has a similar safety profile to primary care.

Get physical therapy-on-demand when you want to avoid the headaches of frequent in-person appointments. This is also good option to supplement your in-person treatments.
BFR is the act of safely restricting venous blood flow from a working muscle, but allowing arterial blood flow to that working muscle. This is done primarily with low-intensity resistance training. Since the ability of that blood to escape is dramatically reduced, metabolic stress and cellular swelling are greatly increased. As a result, increased growth hormone, muscle hypertrophy, and muscle strength occur.
BFR is a game-changer in the world of rehab. Before now, it would take weeks, if not months, for post-surgical patients to begin rehab at 70-80% of their 1 rep max. BFR enables the patient to get those same results but at 30-40% of their 1 rep max. Due to this, the patient can begin rehab much sooner, regain their strength to prevent atrophy, and ultimately get them back to functioning in a fraction of the traditional time.
We value the importance of keeping our patients' / clients' informed of their condition and the options available for them to get better. We teach strategies for self-care and management. We welcome questions. We listen.
We are certified in Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS) Therapy, the world’s first integrative therapy developed to improve pain relief outcome between 70 and 80%.
The theory behind MPS is based on combining acupuncture, osteopathy, integrative dentistry, and neural therapy with modern neurology and microcurrent.
This is how it works. The MPS device locates and applies concentrated DC microcurrent to therapeutically active points (acupuncture and trigger points) for the purpose of relaxing muscles, calming the nervous system, and releasing endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.
This device is engineered to detect and treat these active points with scientific precision, providing stimulation to your nervous system, muscular system and endocrine system all at once.
The power of integrating all these healing techniques into one protocol means MPS can produce far superior outcomes over traditional pain therapies and in a fraction of the time. It has been remarkably successful in the fight against chronic pain.
The support and stability of Kinesio taping for muscles and joints enhances the body’s natural healing process.
Kinesiotaping is particularly effective because it does not restrict the body’s normal range of motion and its natural soft tissue manipulation enhances the benefits of physical therapy.
It is latex free and can be worn for several days without harmful effects. It can also help to alleviate pain and encourage lymphatic drainage.
Often, scars result in a tightening of the surrounding tissue that can restrict movement or function in the body. These restrictions not only affect the joint, limb or surrounding area, but they can affect the underlying organs, too. This is because scar tissue has the potential to spread in any direction, including internally, throughout the body. Fortunately, releasing the scar can yield powerful results, which can improve mobility, diminish complications and decrease pain often associated with deep scars.
MPS (Microcurrent Point Stimulation) is the method used to release scars and is especially effective in treating large, deep, painful scars. The term ‘release’ refers to the releasing or relaxing of contracted and tightened tissue. Coupled with manual release work (a specialized type of massage), MPS Scar/Adhesion Release Therapy significantly reduces the restrictions of scar tissue.
In general, this treatment is completely painless. The use of the microcurrent probes, on the tissue surrounding the scar, creates a healing, inflammatory response. Dead cells and scar tissue are broken down by the body; circulation is increased to the area; and the lymphatic system excretes the dead cells. You will see visible changes in the appearance of the scar and gradually will notice a reduction in the tightness and restriction felt at the site of the scar. The duration of treatment will depend on how long you’ve had the scar, how deep it is, and the severity of any pain you may be having.There is no expiration date on scar release. MPS has helped a Vietnam veteran retain the use of his leg, some forty years after his multiple gunshot injury. Equally, burns and scarring from childhood have been successfully released, with accompanying beneficial results, several decades after the time of the injury.
Since the body’s fascial system is interconnected, a restriction or adhesion in one area will often affect other areas and result in compensation patterns and pain. When a scar has been released there is no longer a restriction in the flow of energy, blood circulation and lymph drainage. The body can then complete the healing process.
Whether from injury or surgery, scar tissue can been significantly improved and softened and circulation and function can be greatly improved with MPS Scar/Adhesion Release Therapy.
Graston Technique® is a unique, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions through comprehensive training, resulting in improved patient outcomes. The technique uses specially-designed stainless steel instruments, along with appropriate therapeutic exercise, to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. The instruments also are used diagnostically to follow the kinetic chain, to locate and treat the cause of the symptom as well as the specific area of pain.
We also use myofascial cupping made of silicone and plastic cups with pressure gauge.
Patients in pain or with limited functional mobility can benefit from this FDA-approved, advanced form of electrotherapy from Russia, and may be effective in treating acute and chronic pain. SCENAR therapy functions on two physiological principles: that the body has its own healing capabilities and that it is continually employing processes of self-regulation to maintain health.
We are certified to offer SCENAR therapy, a non-invasive, non-surgical, and non-pharmaceutical approach to treating pain and muscle spasms, among other things.
We are experienced in treating industrial and recreational athletes who have sustained work or sports injuries or who are looking to strengthen their bodies prior to their work or sports season.
Our goal with injuries is to determine the cause, reduce pain and inflammation, and begin the healing process. We take the time to educate the athlete to prevent recurring injuries.
Sports injuries we treat include runner’s knees, golfer’s shoulder, tennis elbow and sprains, strains and fractures, among others.
We know patients do not want to be sidelined from their favorite sport, and we work hard and effectively to get you back in the game as quickly as possible.
