Our therapists have extensive training in manual therapy and use it in their treatment plans. Your provider will discuss with you which form of manual therapy will provide the most benefit for your current condition.
Soft Tissue Mobilization
We specialize in:
Myofascial Release (MFR)
Joint mobilizations and manipulations
Active Release Technique (ART)
Muscle Energy Technique (MET)
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) including Graston Technique
Cupping and MFD use negative pressure forces with suction cups to lift the tissues. This creates space within the tissue layers for improved gliding and mobility. Decompression helps release tight tissues, improve the pain associated with trigger points, improve blood flow and nutrient exchange and create a change to the neuromuscular system which allows for temporary pain relief.

All of our therapists have training in safe and effective joint and spinal mobilizations. These techniques can be beneficial for stiff or painful joints.
Kinesiotaping can decrease pain, decrease swelling and inflammation, and offer tissue support and proprioception in order to delay fatigue and normalize movement. Taping can be a great addition when combined with other techniques including neuromuscular re-education, restorative exercises and functional movements.
