Wellness and Fitness services are for individuals who want to optimize physical fitness, improve quality of life, and become less susceptible to injuries! Physical Therapists are movement specialists who have a unique skill set and understanding of the complex systems of the body and how they relate to each other. They use a variety of manual techniques combined with exercise and mobility programming to help reduce risk factors for injuries and help patients function at their highest level! No need to wait to see a Physical Therapist until you have an injury, let us help you prevent it!
The contents of a Wellness & Fitness Session may be comprised of a combination of any of the following, depending on the client’s personal needs:
NormaTec Compression Therapy uses pulse massage patterns to promote recovery from exercise or injury. Legs are inserted into inflated sleeves, and compressed air is used to massage, fight inflammation, and mobilize fluids. Compression therapy predominantly serves athletes, though the route of its purpose lies in encouraging blood flow throughout the body to speed up recovery, improve performance, and relieve pain.
Dry needling is a physical therapy technique that decreases pain in your muscles by deactivating a myofascial trigger point. Trigger points are tiny knots that develop in a muscle when it is injured or overworked. These spots are tender at the site and often refer pain to other areas. This treatment uses a dry needle (a needle without medicine) to deactivate trigger points in your muscle.
Muscle strength and conditioning is an essential factor in maintaining a healthy and fit lifestyle. Our team of physical therapists applies scientific and evidence-based knowledge to help you achieve maximum results in fitness and performance. We are highly skilled at identifying imbalances in strength, flexibility, stability, and mobility. We will create a personalized program to correct these imbalances to improve performance and decrease the risk of injury.
Maintain mobility and maximize recovery. Assisted stretch can be a great therapeutic add-on to any wellness/fitnes visit! All performed by a Doctor in Physical Therapy, you benefit from the best professional guidance and techniques to help you reach peak performance. Whether you are an athlete, a laborer, a desk-bound office worker, or recovering from an injury, this combination of therapy is excellent for many.
Photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy is a form of advanced light therapy that applies near infrared (NIR) light energy to tissue for therapeutic benefits. PBM therapy works at the cellular level to boost collagen, elastin and microcirculation, stimulating repair and normalizing cell function. The therapeutic use of PBM is well known – currently being used in thousands of clinics and hospitals around the world.
