What Kind of Treatments Do We Provide?
In addition to a comprehensive evaluation of strength, range of motion, flexibility and posture, we will then discuss implementing your plan of care, which may include the following:
The use of various hands-on techniques to address muscle restriction, scar tissue, poor circulation, joint dysfunction, fascial restriction, swelling, and /or pain. Some of these techniques include myofascial release, strain counterstrain (SCS), soft tissue mobilization, muscle energy technique (MET).
Surface Electrode Biofeedback
Helps in the treatment of patients with urinary or fecal incontinence, constipation, pelvic pain, weakness, or other impairments due to decreased proprioception or awareness of the pelvic floor and accessory muscles.
Utilized to increase strength and prevent disuse atrophy, stimulate sensory nerves to reduce pain, and stimulate the healing process of injured tissue.
Intra Vaginal or Intra Rectal electrical Stimulation
A very beneficial intervention for incontinence and pelvic pain. These treatments are used for pelvic floor muscle re-education through the use of an intra-vaginal or intra-rectal sensor.
Balloon-assisted training for Bowel Dysfunction
This training technique allows the patient to provide feedback about sensation of rectal filling including when the patient perceives urges to defecate. The patient can practice expelling the balloon.
Sound waves stimulate soft tissues to treat muscle spasm or decreased blood flow, promote healing, and help decrease inflammation.
Progressive Therapeutic Exercise
Individualized and client specific physical activities that helps restore and build physical strength, endurance, flexibility, balance, and stability. The goal of therapeutic exercise is returning an injured person to a pain-free, fully functioning state.
Manual Lymph Drainage
is a type of massage based on the hypothesis that it will encourage the natural drainage of the lymph fluid, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart.
Application of short stretch wraps
this is used during decongestive phase of lymphatic treatment. Using multiple layers of short stretch wraps for a graduated compression of the effected limb. Short-stretch wraps work well with active use of the limb and during exercise.
Skin care and Wound care
Appropriate skin care and/or wound care (if needed) is coupled with compression therapy and manual lymph drainage as part of a comprehensive Complete Decongestive Therapy program.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)
is a process in which the clinician uses a set of hand held instruments to break down the scar tissue and fascial restrictions in soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and nerves)
