Description of Services
- Dry Needling is a general term for a therapeutic treatment procedure that involves multiple advances of a filament needle into the muscle in the area of the body which produces pain and typically contains a ‘Trigger Point’. There is no injectable solution and typically the needle which is used is very thin. Most patients will not even feel the needle penetrate the skin, but once it has and is advanced into the muscle, the feeling of discomfort can vary drastically from patient to patient. Usually a healthy muscle feels very little discomfort with insertion of the needle; however, if the muscle is sensitive and shortened or has active trigger points within it, the subject may feel a sensation much like a muscle cramp — which is often referred to as a ‘twitch response’.
- By creating suction and negative pressure, Cupping Therapy is used to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues. This complements many health modalities ranging from spa treatments to medical massage and physical therapy. You will develop small circular bruising where the cupping was administered.
- RockBlades are specially designed, innovative tools that offer physical therapists the ability to perform Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM). IASTM is a popular fascial mobilization and pain relief technique used by a number of healthcare professionals.
