Spinal manipulation is a comfortable and safe technique in which specific vertebrae are targeted and applied with a gentle force, allowing them to release and generate an audible ”pop”. The techniques are comfortable for the patient, moment-induced, and performed in the middle of the client’s available range of motion. It’s great for neck and back pain, headaches, and more.
Blood Flow Restriction Therapy (BFR) is a cutting edge training tool that can build muscle size and strength at lighter loads, significantly faster and often greater than those achieved with traditional resistance training. Results can begin to occur in as a little as 2-3 weeks. BFR also improves fitness when combined with aerobic or high intensity interval training. Therefore, BFR can improve VO2 max, aerobic capacity and is great for muscle recovery.
Dry needles are fine microfilament needles inserted into myofascial trigger points, tendons, or ligaments to stimulate a healing response. It “re-sets” the muscle, getting deep into the areas of restriction allowing stubborn knots and tension to be released that ordinary therapy techniques can not accomplish. Dry needling works well for headaches, back and neck pain, shoulder pain, piriformis syndrome, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, hip pain, tennis/golfers elbow, carpal tunnel, migraines, IT band syndrome, and much more.
Dry cupping is an effective technique that provides soft and deep tissue mobilization using plastic cups to target areas of pain, stress, stiffness and restriction. Air applied into the cups creates a vacuum (suction) that pulls up the skin, muscle and fascia. This allows improved circulation, healing, oxygen and nutrients to the area. It is a great tool for muscle recovery by removing lactic acid and toxins from targeted muscles. Marks that are left by the cups last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks depending on the client. You will benefit from cupping if any daily or recreational movement causes you pain or if you exercise.
