Functional Dry Needling:
Functional Dry Needling is an effective, safe, and efficient treatment for patients suffering from musculoskeletal pain. A small, thin needle is inserted into the muscle where tight, taut trigger points are palpated by the therapist. The goal of this needle is to contract the muscle and then relax it. This treatment is effective for patients with chronic muscle or joint pain, muscle inhibition, or are looking to increase muscle performance.

Graston Soft Tissue Technique:
Graston Technique® is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. http://www.grastontechnique.com/AboutUs/ASynopsis.html
Custom Orthotic Prescription and Fitting:
While this is one of our specialties, we aren’t going to recommend this treatment first. Initially, we will look at all aspects of your gait mechanics, not just your feet – determine where the problem is coming from. We make sure that trouble areas are addressed and that you are educated in what you can do down the road for prevention. We manage all foot pain with a holistic approach and only when that fails will we go down the road towards orthotics. Should you need a pair, we look at the rearfoot and forefoot as well as take activity, shoe-wear, and comfort into account. We use a local company to mill out our orthotics so you can be ensured the fastest turn around times available.
Balance Training/Fall Prevention:
Nothing is worse than a fall. Often, patients do not realize their balance has been compromised until it is too late. Our proactive approach will address strength issues, joint position awareness (proprioception), inner ear calibration, visual dependency issues and much more.
Vertigo is often left untreated due to patient’s ‘having it for years’, or ‘just dealing with it’. We treat all origins of vertigo, whether it is from inner ear dysfunction, visual tracking issues, or lack of positional awareness in the joints (proprioception).
We offer patients the opportunity to continue their exercise program independently at our facility when they are finished with therapy. For a low monthly rate you can come in at your own leisure and utilize our equipment to continue and further your home program.
Personal Training Following Rehabilitation:
We also offer personal training sessions for that one-on-one guidance and encouragement. The benefit to this is it involves the same great team who knows your health history and can take that into account when progressing you.
