Manual Therapy

available in all locations

 

"A clinical approach utilizing skilled, specific hands-on techniques, including but not limited to manipulation/mobilization, used by the physical therapist to assess and treat soft tissues and joint structures for the purpose of modulating pain; increasing range of motion (ROM); reducing or eliminating soft tissue inflammation; improving contractile and non-contractile tissue repair, extensibility, and/or stability; facilitating movement; and improving function."

 

Techniques include but are not limited to soft tissue and joint mobilization, muscle energy and neural tension techniques, manual resistive exercise, and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF).

vestibular

Vestibular Therapy

available in all locations

 

Vestibular therapy utilizes gaze stabilization and balance exercises to reduce symptoms of vertigo and instability and decrease risk of falls. Skilled Physical Therapists will also utilize a series of tests to determine if the dizziness symptoms are due to the crystals in one’s inner ear being out of place. If that is the case, there are a variety of repositioning maneuvers that can be performed to relocate the crystals and decrease one’s symptoms.

Functional Dry Needling

Dry Needlng*

Refer to the "Our Team" page for FDN Certified Therapists. 

 

Functional Dry Needling involves the insertion of a thin filament needle to stimulate the healing process of soft tissues (muscle "trigger points", fascia, tendons, and ligaments, etc) resulting in pain relief and restoration of healthy physiology. Research supports that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, normalizes biochemical and electrical dysfunction of motor endplates, and facilitates an accelerated return to active rehabilitation.

 

RATES:

$15 per treatment (in addition to your co-pay amount)

 

graston technique

Graston Technique

available in all locations

 

Graston Technique uses unique instruments that enable the treatment of scar tissue and fascial restrictions during rehabilitation. This allows for faster recovery to successfully restore range of motion, pain reduction, and functional restoration.

cupping

Cupping

available in all locations

 

Cupping is a treatment technique that can increase blood flow and decrease muscle tension in the area of soft tissue or joint restriction. One benefit of cupping compared to other forms of soft tissue treatments is that it can be coupled with functional movements, allowing for quicker restoration of normal movement patterns with less pain.

 

 

ART

Active Release Therapy 

available in all locations

 

ART is a soft tissue treatment technique that is movement-based. This technique is used to treat problems that involve the muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves as a 3-Dimensional Structure. This form of therapy can be used on patients with acute, chronic, overuse, repetitive strain injuries and postoperative cases of all types to normalize physiological function.

shockwave

SHOCKWAVE THERAPY*

8available in Wilmington & Hockessin. (Initial Evaluations are required for all new patients before we can treat you with Shockwave)

 

Radial Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive therapeutic modality used to treat many acute and chronic conditions. Through the delivery of low acoustic shock waves directly into the tissues, this tool can provide fast pain relief and mobility restoration of the bones, tendons, and soft tissues.

Shockwave is scientifically proven to be beneficial for plantar fascitis, jumper's knee, tennis elbow, achilles tendonitis, heel spurs, and frozen shoulder. The treatment itself has some mild discomfort but only lasts 3 to 5 minutes. Most treatment plans will require 3-5 sessions, spaced 3-10 days apart. 

 

 RATES:

$80

alter g

The Alter-G*

available in all locations

 

The Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a state-of-the-art piece of therapy equipment that enables patients and athletes with all types of lower-body injuries and ailments to rehabilitate in an altered, reduced state of gravity. Whether you’re a patient or an athlete dealing with lower-body injuries, chronic pain, neurological or balance conditions that inhibit mobility, you can benefit from the unweighting capabilities while normalizing your gait.

 

RATES:

30-Minute Session: $50

(free to use as part of treatment plan for any current patient)
