In the initial evaluation, your physical therapist will conduct a thorough evidence based exam of your mobility, strength, movement patterns, and activity specific impairments. You will receive a therapy diagnosis, prognosis, hands on treatment and an individualized exercise program to improve your symptoms.
The McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy enables you to take control of your pain and empowers you to return to the life you love as an athlete. This reliable assessment process is intended for all musculoskeletal problems, including pain in the back, neck and extremities (i.e., shoulder, knee, ankle etc.). It is also effective in the treatment of issues associated with sciatica, sacroiliac joint pain, arthritis, degenerative disc disease, muscle spasms and intermittent numbness in hands or feet. If you are suffering from any such issues, then a MDT assessment may be right for you.
Functional Dry Needling addresses muscle and nerve function by placing filiform needles strategically in tissues to address physical impairments, motor impairments and sensory experiences within a movement and neurological framework. Dry needling has been found to decrease pain, reduce muscle trigger points, improve blood flow and restore normal biochemical levels in dysfunctional tissues.
