We can help decrease pain and improve healing time for shoulders, backs, necks, knees, wrists, and more. We employ therapies such as Postural Movement Exercises, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), therapeutic ultrasound (US), therapy bands and tubing, trigger point dry needling, balance balls and vibe plates. We also specialize in Inter-Muscular Stimulation protocols which combine EMS/TENS & Acupuncture to target the muscles and soft tissue for quicker reduction of pain, decreased healing time, and enhanced relaxation of the muscles and soft tissue.  For more advanced postural rehabilitation or pain management solutions, we work with fantastic providers in the area.


Posture / Balance Exercises

Movement Posture Testing

Posture is key in helping the body function with as much energy and vitality as possible. We determine if people are happy or sad by how they hold themselves. How you stand, walk, and move tells others more about you than you may realize. If the posture / balance is off, the body must work harder to stay upright. You must twist and bend to take pressure off your joints and disc, leading to early and advanced wear and tear. In addition, digestion, respiration, and heart function can all be adversely affected. A properly moving body helps you look, feel, and function better. We can help you determine where your imbalance is, how to work on it at home, and monitor your successes and improvement through photo and video recording.

For centuries, soft tissue therapy has been a key part of everyday health.  From general massage, to tool assisted scraping and lifting. Over the past couple decades, myofascial therapy has gained popularity.  From Cupping, to Graston and A-Stim therapies - this approach aims at reducing abnormal movement patterns through the act of releasing "adhesions" -or better put - restrictive movements - by helping the underlying tissue move in a more natural and appropriate pattern. While the initial first couple sessions can be uncomfortable, or even painful, once the tissue begins to move more freely, the patient will actual come to look forward to the therapy.

Similar to the type of stretching you would expect from a physical therapist, a sport therapist, or stretch therapist. 

Unlike traditional stretching facilities and therapist, you will be cared for by a Doctor trained in human anatomy, who has actually dissected the body and understands the deeper functions and movements of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and underlying tissue.  You deserve more, we offer that.

KinesioTape is a flexible tape that is gaining popularity daily. Patients are amazed how something so simple can make such a profound difference. Through stimulating blood and lymphatic flow, the body is able to bring nutrient rich blood to an area and remove debris and damaged tissue resulting in shortened healing time. It is used for injury prevention and recovery. KinesioTape increases neuromuscular re-education which will enhance the effectiveness of your rehab and exercises.
