"You are taken care of"
 

Manual Therapy

Specific hands-on techniques used to restore joint and tissue mobility.  These techniques are carried out after detailed assessment to identify the causes of the symptoms and movement dysfunction.  Joint mobilization, spinal manipulation, nerve glides and myofascial management are a few examples of this effective treatment approach.  

 

 

Neuromuscular Acupuncture (NON-Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture)

This time-tested and natural treatment method utilizes our body’s own natural system to encourage healing, reduce inflammation and decrease pain.  Scientific studies have confirmed these beneficial effects through the production of chemicals such as endorphin and cortisol in addition to its effect on the fascia system to maximize movement. 

IMS (Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation)

It is an effective acupuncture technique developed by Dr. Chan Gunn to treat chronic pain of neuropathic origin. This is achieved by releasing shortened muscles that press on supersensitive nerves. The effect is accumulative and can lead to complete recovery.


DN (Dry Needling)
This specialized technique is used to release myofascial trigger points in hypertonic (spastic) muscles by inserting acupuncture needle momentarily in specific muscle points.  This technique provides effective reduction of muscle spasm and relief of pain. 

 




Sports Injury Rehabilitation 

Our therapists have extensive training and experiences in treating athletic injuries. We utilize a combination of manual therapy, state-of-the-art modalities, specific exercises, taping and education to allow the athletes to return to activities and sports safely and quickly.

 


 


 

Chronic Pain Management 

We provide a variety of treatment and management for people who suffer from chronic pain after a detailed assessment to identify possible causes. We then address the neural and musculoskeletal contributing factors within our scope of practice.  We will direct the clients to other appropriate medical/health practitioners if needed.  Our therapist is also part of a team that provides BOTOX, PRP (platelet Rich Plasma), and prolotherapy injections in a multidisciplinary pain clinic. 




Vestibular Rehabilitation is effective in treating BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo) .  This idiopathic dysfunction can cause severe dizziness due to debris in the inner ear.  This condition can be treated effectively through specific movement sequence such as the Epley Maneuver after a detailed assessment to identify which ear canal is involved.
