We offer a range of services to help you achieve the results you’re after. Not sure what you need, or what it costs? We can explain what services are right for you and tell you more about our fees. Get in touch below.
The Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) is intended to pinpoint the exact cause of a patient’s musculoskeletal dysfunction and differentiate between mobility and stability problems. Once the diagnosis is made, the treatment shifts into injury rehabilitation and proper motor control restoration.
The Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) screen involves patient history, current health, assessment of movement quality, swing mechanics and physical fitness. The results are used to create a plan individualized for that golfer. The plan will include treatment/therapy, fitness training, coaching of swing mechanics or all of the above.
We find joints in your body that are not moving freely. This can cause tightness and discomfort and can lead to arthritis or degeneration. We will apply a gentle force with our hands in order to restore motion to any “restricted” joints. Joint manipulation improves flexibility, relieves pain and helps maintain healthy joints.
Integrative dry needling is not acupuncture (traditional Chinese medicine), it is based on neuro-anatomy and modern scientific study of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems. A very fine filament needle is inserted through the skin and into the deeper tissues that are considered trigger points to the pain. Dry needling works by causing a micro lesion within the pathological tissue thus breaking up shortened tissues, inhibiting a reflex arc from the nervous system to the tissue, normalizing the inflammatory response, and centrally mediating the pain. This mechanical and neuromuscular effect provides an environment that enhances the body’s ability to heal which ultimately reduces pain.
Flexion Distraction technique utilizes a special table that tractions and flexes your spine in a gentle rhythmic motion. This combined movement helps to restore flexibility to restricted joints while bringing nutrients into the spinal disc and reducing bulging disc material. Flexion distraction is a proven and safe low-force option to help resolve various sciatic and lower back complaints.
Overworked muscles often become tight and develop knots or “trigger points”. Chronic tightness produces inflammation and swelling that ultimately leads to the formation of “adhesions” between tissues. We will apply pressure with our hands in order to release muscle tightness and soft-tissue adhesions. This will help to improve your circulation, relieve pain and restore flexibility.
Neuromuscular Re-education (NMR)
Your nervous system must work closely with your muscles to tell them when and where to move. Over time, your body begins to automatically remember “patterns” of movement, like riding a bicycle. Sometimes, pain or injury can trigger your nervous system to “learn” bad movement patterns that can continue causing problems. We will use this type of therapy to help you “re-learn” proper movement patterns and restore your range of motion, balance and coordination.
Muscle tightness or weakness causes discomfort and alters normal joint function, leading to additional problems. We will target “tight” or “weak” muscles with specific therapeutic stretching and strengthening to help increase tissue flexibility, build strength, and ease pain. Healthy, strong, and flexible muscles may help prevent re-injury.
PNF stretching, or proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, is a specialized stretching technique that is considered one of the most effective ways to relax tight muscles. We will guide you through movements that repeatedly contract, relax and progressively stretch your tight muscles. PNF stretching has been shown to help improve flexibility and performance.
We will apply a special elastic therapeutic tape in order to support injured areas or encourage better movement. This tape is thought to decrease pain and swelling, improve circulation and limit muscle soreness.
Cupping involves placing special cups on the skin to create suction. The suction draws blood to the area and is thought to relieve muscle tension, improve circulation, and reduce inflammation. Cupping often leaves temporary round marks on the skin.
