Treatments We Offer

  • Hands-On Manual Therapy

    Manual therapy makes use of hands-on therapeutic techniques to relieve pain, restore mobility, and increase range of motion. Hands-on treatments are typically performed alongside an individualized exercise program to improve function in the affected area.

    While manual therapy is often used to alleviate pain in the hip, knee, ankle, spine, and wrist, there are virtually no limitations on the areas that can be treated.

  • Prescriptive Home Exercise Program

    A prescriptive home exercise program is a key component of physiotherapy. Our physical therapists develop personalized workout plans to help decrease pain and ensure continuous recovery.

    Using our MyMovement Rx mobile app, we send tailored movement prescriptions directly to your smartphone. This simplifies participation tracking, improves outcomes, and helps strengthen the patient-physical therapist relationship.

  • Applied Functional Science

    Applied functional science integrates physical, biological, and behavioral sciences to create the best possible treatment plan.

    Our AFS practitioners are Fellows of Applied Functional Science through the Gray Institute led by world-renowned physical therapist, Dr. Gary Gray.

  • Deep Muscle Stimulation

    Deep Muscle Stimulation uses mechanical and percussion vibrations to penetrate deeply into the muscle tissue and stimulate the muscle. Treatments focus on general or local muscle spasms to boost muscle metabolism, reduce lactic acid buildup, and alleviate acute and chronic pain.

  • Dry Needling

    Dry needling is a safe, minimally discomforting, and often an effective treatment for patients with movement impairments. During dry needling, a thin monofilament needle is inserted into the skin to treat underlying trigger points. This in turn, helps ease muscular pain, reduce muscle tension, and improve range of motion.

  • McKenzie Therapy

    The McKenzie Method® of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (MDT) is a globally acclaimed method of evaluation and treatment for spinal and extremity impairments. It focuses on centralizing pain and leverages self-healing techniques, including exercise.
