Lymphedema

Our facility has a wide range of techniques to address and manage post mastectomy, post-surgical, or chronic lymphedema. Therapists are trained in manual lymphatic drainage, edema fan kinesiotaping, compression garment fitting, and other hands on approaches to stimulate lymphatic return.

Vibrastim

State of the art technology utilizing light pressure vibrations to obtain the benefits of a deep tissue massage. Vibrastim is primarily used in the collegiate and professional athlete setting for speedy recovery from sports injuries.

Functional Dry Needling

Physical therapists use acupuncture style needles to release trigger points in areas of pain to allow for better mobility, function, and promote return to activity. It is a more direct approach to releasing muscle knots by resetting motor points for longer lasting relief.

Cupping

A suctioning effect to promote the flow of stagnant blood, enhance circulation and promote healing in areas of pain. This technique is also very effective with lifting scar tissue in areas of restriction such as post-surgical scars i.e. post-mastectomy with reconstruction, joint replacements, spine operations.

Kinesiotaping

Practitioners are trained to evaluate and determine the correct technique of taping for your specific injury or areas of pain. This method can be used to activate or inhibit a muscle’s function, reduce swelling, lift scar tissue, reduce trigger points and manage pain dependent on therapist’s technique and placement.
