Physical therapy is a non-invasive rehabilitative discipline aimed at improving your health and quality of life. Physical therapy isn’t just one exercise or one type of stretch. It includes many different types of treatments, including stretching, specific neuromuscular exercises, manual therapies, and modalities. Because there are many different types of treatments that fall under the physical therapy discipline, physical therapy can be used to improve many different conditions, including:

Manual physical therapy, is a specialized form of physical therapy delivered with the hands as opposed to a device or machine. In manual therapy, practitioners use their hands to put pressure on muscle tissue and manipulate joints in an attempt to decrease back pain caused by muscle spasm, muscle tension, and joint dysfunction. This specialized form of treatment helps to reduce swelling, pain, soft tissue restrictions, mobilize joints, and restore motion and function. Consists of manual techniques such as manual traction, massage, mobilization/manipulation and lymphatic drainage.



Joints depend on a combination of both stability and mobility in order to help you function efficiently and comfortably. They are supported by a wide variety of physiological structures including capsules, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and muscle fibers. They all can become injured and are often the hidden underlying factors driving other types of injuries and ailments including muscle strains, ligament damage, and bursitis. Joint dysfunctions can benefit from physical therapy services, with joint mobilization. It involves the passive movement of specific joints using the skilled application of force, direction, and technique. The primary effects of joint mobilizations include pain reduction, improved range of motion, and improved quality of joint movement itself (known as arthrokinematics).



Physical therapy goes beyond post-surgical care by restoring strength, endurance, flexibility, and stability to people who have been injured, are in pain, or have experienced illness. Through therapeutic exercise, it is possible to have your function restored and live a life that is pain-free. Physical therapists are trained to create a customized treatment plan, including therapeutic exercise, that can strengthen your muscles, restore function to healing or surgically repaired joints, and reduce your overall pain levels. Increasing power, endurance, and muscle strength are vital to reducing imbalances, correcting posture, promotes stability as well as bone and joint health, and injury prevention.



Cupping therapy is one of the oldest and most effective method of releasing the toxins from body tissue and organs. Research also has been shown it to relax muscles, release trigger points, improve lymphatic flow, increase local circulation and release scar tissue adhesions. It is a technique in which the therapist puts special cups on the skin to create suction. This causes the tissue beneath the cup to be drawn up and swell causing increase in blood flow to affected area. Enhanced blood flow under the cups draws impurities and toxins away from the nearby tissues and organs towards the surface for elimination. This tissue distraction release causes the skin to rise and the blood vessels to expand. The cups can also be glided across different areas to lift and separate tissue to further enhances the release of the interfaces between the neural tissues, fascia, skin, ligaments, muscles, and tendons.



IASTM is the acronym for Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization. It is a type of manual therapy that utilizes stainless steel instruments to help heal soft tissue injuries through mobilization of the connective tissues, muscles, neurological tissues and skin. It is effective for soft tissue injuries like repetitive stress injury, strains, sprains, and subluxations. This soft tissue mobilization technique treats a wide number of conditions, including quadricep pain, rotator cuff pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back pain, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, and even headaches. Its increased rate of volume and blood flow to affected areas enhances healing, boosts cellular activity, reduces pain and inflammation, and increases mobility.
