Kinesiology taping (or Kinesio taping) is the application of a thin, stretchy, cotton-based therapeutic tape that can benefit a wide variety of injuries and inflammatory conditions. It is almost identical to human skin in both thickness and elasticity, which allows it to be worn without binding, constricting or restriction of movement. Depending on the application technique, KT taping can create stability, provide movement assistance or relieve pain.
Muscle Energy Techniques
Muscle Energy Technique (MET) is a manual therapy treatment which uses the muscle's own energy in the form of gentle isometric contractions to either relax the muscles creating a lengthening effect in the muscle or improve alignment of skeletal structures.
Myofascial Release is a type of manual treatment used to release tension and reduce pain from any area of the body that has restriction in the tissue between the skin and the muscle or within the muscle itself.
Nerve flossing (sometimes called nerve gliding or neural gliding) describes a type of gentle technique or exercise that stretches irritated nerves, with the goal of improving range of motion and reducing pain.
A paraffin treatment soothes chronic joint pain, relaxes stiff muscles and improves blood flow to the treated area.
Post-Surgical Physical Therapy
Physical therapy is an essential component of healthy post-surgery rehabilitation. It involves injury treatment, healing, protection and prevention. Patients recovering from orthopedic surgeries can use physical therapy to improve strength and mobility as well as manage pain without medication.
Rehabilitation and recovery modalities
Electric Stimulation, NMES, Ultrasound and TENS all used to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, improve muscle extensibility and improve function after acute injury.
Soft tissue mobilization
Soft tissue mobilization is a form of physical therapy designed to help improve range of motion and function through hands-on techniques such as percussion, instrument assisted (IASTM) and conventional point pressure.
