Physical Therapy

Initial Evaluation, Functional Assessment, Effective Treatments 

My purpose is to help you achieve abilities in movement, strength, and enable accessibility to function by implementing a customized treatment plan with effective therapeutic techniques and individualized care. 

One on one treatments are typically 1 hour which includes skilled care, hands-on applications, and evidence-based clinical practice methods to target the cause of dysfunction and assist to provide long term solutions.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling

A modern treatment with a monofilament needle to release muscle tightness and trigger points, decrease myofascial restrictions, and reduce neuromuscular pain.

Does it hurt?

Most people would say no and often describe feeling a sensation of the tight muscles "melting away" during the treatment. Initially, it is common to either feel nothing or what could be described as a mosquito bite. In some cases, it is possible to feel slight tenderness or a muscle twitch. This should dissipate immediately with pausing or redirecting the path of the monofilament. You as the patient are in complete control during this treatment and we want you to feel as comfortable as possible. Please discuss any concerns you may have with your practitioner if you are considering dry needling for the first time.

Postural Restoration

Do you ever feel like your body is tilted or shifted out of place?

Some may say they feel like one leg is longer than the other, they may describe leaning over towards one direction, or "I don't want to have that hump on my back when I'm older."

With multiple treatment options, we can promote your body into proper symmetrical alignment.

Telehealth Options

 

Virtual assessments and treatments are performed through video sessions from our secure online platform. This provides opportunities for people who are unable to come to a clinic setting but still looking for options to manage their injuries or ailments. Through our Telehealth services, we are able to evaluate your symptoms discussing the details of your condition, and perform a virtual evaluation of your movement patterns and functional abilities. Once we gain enough data to understand the underlying issues we are able to creatively guide you through activities that you can comfortably perform in your own space. Patients will also receive post-session care and exercise programming to continue to make advancements towards total recovery.
