Cupping Therapy is a rehab treatment using suction cups on the skin. They disperse and break up restricted and overused muscle. The suction pulls blood to the tissue and stimulates healing. The cup sizes, cupping time, and movement of the cups can be manipulated in multiple different ways by the physical therapist to address pain management, blood flow, muscle relaxation, and myofascial mobility.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue sports massage is a type of massage technique that focuses on treating soft tissue aches, pain and injuries that are associated with recreational activities. Deep tissue massage can reduce muscle stiffness and improve relaxation by reducing heart rate and blood pressure. Our physical therapist will use deep tissue massage techniques to treat the muscle along with manual stretching, myofascial release and trigger point therapy.
Percussion massage accelerates the growth and repair of tissues by providing concentrated, rapid, short-duration pulses deep into the tissues of the body. This heavily increases blood flow to the area causing pain relief and an increasing range of motion and function. Percussive massage also provides a gentle stretch to the muscles and connective tissues improving responsiveness and performance.
Muscle energy technique is a form of manual therapy which uses gentle isometric contractions of the client to relax the muscles and lengthen the muscle. This contraction can normalize joint range of motion.
Graston therapy is an instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization treatment to aide in faster rehabilitation. Stainless steel tools are used in areas of scar tissue or adhesions. This allows the physical therapist to effectively treat problem areas and can reduce pain, increase motion and improve the patient to full function after an injury.
REFLEXIVE PERFORMANCE RESET
RPR is a cutting edge system to instantly improve joint mobility, movement quality, core and athletic performance. RPR starts with identifying faulty firing patterns and eliminating them in a matter of minutes. From there, we can begin to assess individual muscle function to ensure all the vital parts are fully functional and operating as a unit to improve movement efficiency, relieve pain, and improve performance.
