The Training Room offers a full range of services
Joint and Soft Tissue Mobilization and Manipulations
Manual therapy is a hallmark of our physical therapy intervention. We believe a manual hands-on approach is a crucial piece of rehabilitation.
Our therapists certified in Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy (OMPT) have received specialized education and clinical experience for an additional two years (2,000 hours of additional study and training).
OMPT is highly specialized and provides advanced theoretical and clinical training, emphasizing differential diagnosis and manual therapy procedures.
Soft tissue techniques provide movement of skin, fascia and muscle, which causes changes in the soft tissues to produce improved mobility and function. It also helps to decrease pain and muscle spasms and improve circulation, to facilitate healing.
Functional Core Stabilization Training
If your spine is not appropriately stabilized, you will not safely and efficiently transmit forces to your arms and legs, increasing your risk for dysfunction and injury. Control of the spine is required for daily activities as well as for balance, stability, and coordination during basic and
You may need core stabilization training to help manage low back injury/pain, for assistance in keeping your spine in a good position for daily activities, or you may need to improve your core stability under heavy loads and quick explosive movements. We tailor your therapy to meet your specific needs.
Manual traction is used to help alleviate symptoms associated with back and neck pain. Traction can be applied manually or with the use of belting techniques, allowing the therapist to adjust treatment techniques very specifically and to the comfort of the patient. Manual traction works by stretching muscles and joints, opening space between vertebrae to relieve pressure off nerves and intervertebral discs.
Electrical stimulation can be used to help decrease your pain and can help when muscle strength is affected, training the muscles to respond appropriately with your effort. It can also be used to help reduced swelling and edema and can help facilitate the healing process.
Iontophoresis uses a mild electrical current to deliver medication through the skin to help with symptom control, inflammation and healing. Primarily used with musculoskeletal inflammation such as tendinitis, fasciitis, or bursitis.
Return to Sport Specific and Recreational Activities
Along with manual therapy, therapeutic exercise is another hallmark of the services we provide. As movement experts we have specialized training in evaluating and treating sports injuries. Ultimately, your rehabilitation exercises must appropriately and safely progress to functional movement patterns. We design and structure programs to help you achieve your individual goals so you can return to sport/activity, safely.
Whether you are an athlete or someone who wants to be active and healthy, our therapists will work with you to provide the most appropriate exercises to maximize your rehabilitation, so you can get back to doing what you want to do. For your athletic needs, our staff has specialized and advanced exercise training and experience.
Body mechanics training & ergonomic intervention for return to function
Injuries and pain can be due to prolonged poor posture and/or musculoskeletal imbalances. You may be able to function and exercise in poor positions for a long time with no immediate negative consequences. You may not notice a problem until you feel pain. The pain that you feel may be from an injury or it could be due to a dysfunction that has been present for a prolonged period of time. It could be that you are not aware of the poor positions and/or you may have muscular imbalances in strength and mobility.
As movement experts, we can help find the cause of the problem so we can help alleviate your symptoms and assist you in getting back to function.
Bracing, Taping, and Splinting
Taping and bracing can prevent injury or facilitate an injured athlete's return to activity. It can also help limit abnormal or excessive movement of an inured joint while also providing support to the surrounding muscle.
Kinesio-tape can provide sensory cues to your muscles and tissues, encouraging muscles to contract. It can also facilitate re-education of the neuromuscular system, reduce pain and inflammation, enhance performance, and promote good circulation to facilitate healing.
Taping is also used for postural re-education and mechanical correction to help with poor posture and overuse syndromes.
Ultrasound can be used to accelerate the rate of tissue healing from an increase of blood flow to the area, helping you get back to health and sport quicker. It can also be used to help decrease pain by reducing swelling. Ultrasound can be used on sprains, strains, tendonitis, and other musculoskeletal conditions.
