Are you recovering from some type of athletic injury? Have you recently undergone a type of medical procedure, or been involved in a car accident? Are you dealing with another issue that keeps you from being at your physical best? If so, physical therapy can help you get back to your normal, day-to-day routine. At our clinic, we understand the uncertainty and stress that goes along with a muscle strain, an injury, or recovering after surgery.
Physical therapy is an effective treatment to combat pain and injury. At Integrated Wellness, we can help address your medical concerns through the expertise of our doctors of chiropractic, massage therapists and medical doctors, all of whom we’ve gathered with the intention of increasing the effectiveness of rehabilitation.
More than just the promotion of healing for pain or injury, physical therapy rehabilitation, also called physiotherapy, can strengthen muscle, increase flexibility, improve balance and coordination, and help patients to prevent future injury. Integrated Wellness offers therapy that works with the body’s natural healing processes, and the competent staff is committed to treating the patient as a whole person.
Manual Physical Therapy
With this type of physical therapy, a therapist will use soft tissue mobilization, neural tissue mobilization, and joint mobilization to help improve mobility, optimize functional movement, and restore tissue health.
There are specific, hands-on techniques that utilize pressure, manipulation, and kneading to help significantly improve the overall range of motion and to heal injuries throughout the body. Our therapists and other experts in this treatment method understand what works best for each issue to provide the treatment and results needed.
The Graston Technique
The Graston technique utilizes stainless steel instruments to assess and treat soft tissue issues. This type of treatment can help speed up recovery significantly. By using these tools, minor and major fibrotic changes in soft tissue are identified and then treated efficiently.
ICE is a method that is still widely used when it comes to helping reduce cases of pain and swelling. However, our team also makes use of technologically advanced devices including the Game Ready units that offer both ice and cyclic pneumatic pressure at the same time.
If you are like most people, you probably aren’t aware of your posture. However, if you are sitting, standing, or walking crooked, then all of your joints – all over your body – are going to suffer. As time passes, cases of bad posture may result in chronic pain and serious injuries. With a proper analysis for any type of postural deficiencies, and the use of individualized prescriptions to realign the body, you can easily conquer your pain and overcome any related issues you may be suffering from.
There’s a good chance you (like millions of other people) spend most of your time sitting at a desk. Our team provides you with ergonomic advice for your work set up, and we can teach you an array of therapeutic exercises that will help to prevent any repetitive stress injuries – in addition to back and neck pain while you are at your desk.
Gait and Running Analysis
The way you walk or run may have caused your injury or pain. Our team can observe and evaluate any type of abnormal gait or footfall pattern by using a video analysis that will assess your joint angle and capture photos while you are walking or running on a treadmill.
