Neuromuscular reeducation is one technique used by physical therapists to facilitate the return of normal movement in individuals with neuromuscular impairments. Muscle movement patterns are affected when nerves or muscles experience damage or injury as a result of trauma, medical conditions, and neurological conditions
Kinesio Taping (also known as ‘KT Taping’) is a rehabilitative taping technique designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints. It can be used to decrease pain and inflammation, relax overused or tired muscles, and support muscles in unrestricted movement.
Manual therapy includes specific techniques used to treat musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction with use of hands or instruments. Manual therapy techniques assist in restoring fluid motion to the affected joint or soft tissue with the focus on better overall movement.
TDN is a treatment for muscular tightness and spasm which commonly follows injuries and often accompanies the degenerative processes. Small, thin needles are inserted in the muscles at the trigger points causing the pain referral. The muscles would then contract and release, improving flexibility of the muscle and decreasing the symptoms.
Skilled myofascial intervention that includes the use of specialized tools to manipulate the skin, myofascia, muscles, and tendons by various direct compressive stroke techniques. The Graston Technique® is designed to restore normal range of motion, decrease fascial restrictions, eliminate pain, and restore function to an area of restriction.
Exercise and training that is specifically implemented by your physical therapist to help you walk or run better. The exercises involve improving motion in your lower extremity joints, improving strength and balance, and mimicking the repetitive nature of your legs that occur while walking
Strengthen balance control in everyday activities leading to improved fall-related self-efficacy, reduced fear of falling and increased walking speed
Electrical stimulation uses electrical pulses to mimic the action of signals coming from neurons (cells in your nervous system). These mild electrical currents target either muscles or nerves. By causing repeated muscle contractions, blood flow improves, helping repair injured muscles.
Vestibular rehabilitation therapy is a specialized form of therapy intended to alleviate problems caused by vestibular disorders, primarily vertigo and dizziness, gaze instability, and/or imbalance and falls.
