Cookie Cutter Approach? Not with Me.
Throughout your treatment plan I will use a variety of the most current and researched-based techniques to achieve your desired results.
Hands On / Manual Therapy
I specialize in an eclectic mix of hands on/manual therapy approaches, including:
Functional Manual Therapy (FMT)
Active Release Technique (ART)
The Maitland Approach
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF)
Muscle Energy Technique (MET)
Dry needling is a skilled intervention that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and release trigger points in the muscles and connective tissues. It is a valuable technique for relieving pain and restoring mobility.
Cup Therapy is also known as Myofascial Decompression (MFD). It addresses restrictions in muscles and connective tissue by improving the mobility of the soft tissue layers. The use of negative pressure with suction cups creates space between the soft tissue layers that allows each layer to slide one upon another with improved movement efficiency.
My mission is to get you back to your sport as quickly and safely as possible. I will customize a sport-specific program to help you eliminate your restrictions and achieve your athletic goals. You will jump higher, kick harder, throw farther and run faster than you did before the injury.
Athletic injuries can put a huge damper on your lifestyle.
Common sports injuries include:
•Knee injuries in teenage female soccer players
•Shoulder injuries in throwing athletes
•Knee & IT band problems in runners
•Back pain in golfers
I will perform a thorough evaluation, determine your risk for specific injuries, and design a custom, research-based program to mitigate those risks and avoid injury.
Kinesiology Tape / Rock Tape®
Kinesiology tape is designed to facilitate the body's natural healing process while proving support and stability without restricting movement.Rock Tape® is engineered to meet the demands of competitive athletes. It can be used to apply compression and promote recovery, or decompression to relieve pain and swelling.
ASTYM® (Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization) is a noninvasive treatment that eliminates scar tissue and replaces it with healthy collagen. The result is healthier, more functional tissue.
ASTYM® uses specialized instruments, designed to maximize the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.
Post Surgical Rehabilitation
Surgical techniques and postoperative therapy protocols have advanced overtime, allowing patients to safely return to sports and activities quicker. Many therapists use outdated protocols because they are not up-to-date on the latest clinical research. I have devoted myself to staying current on the advancements in surgical techniques and rehabilitation so I can help you get back to 125% quickly and safely.
