Cupping is a therapeutic treatment using suction created by cups placed on the surface of the skin to relieve muscle tension, promote healing and increase blood flow in tissue. Your session will begin with a Myofascial Massage or Professional Stretching to loosen tissues and identify restricted areas where the Cups will be applied.  The Cups are designed to remove air  by suction, creating a force which distracts the skin from the fascial layer.  This process increases the blood supply to the muscle and skin, bringing nourishment and allowing toxins to be flushed away.

Cupping can aid in improving:

  • Pain Symptoms
  • Soft Tissue Tightness
  • Blood Flow
  • Joint Mobility
  • Muscle Cramps
  • Scar Adhesions

Dry Needling

Dry needling is typically used to release knots and relieve muscle spasms and pain. During dry needling, a practitioner inserts several filiform needles into your skin. Filiform needles are fine, short, stainless steel needles that don’t inject fluid into the body (which is why the term “dry” is used.) When the needle penetrates the knots in a muscle, it elicits a “twitch” response. This twitch leads to a release of pain and indicates a deactivation of the painful trigger point.

Some dry needling techniques treat a broader landscape of the central nervous system. This is called non-trigger point treatment. Instead of inserting needles only in the area of pain, the practitioner may instead insert needles in areas around the point of pain instead of directly on it. This technique relies on the idea that pain is the result of a greater nerve or muscular issue, not just focused in the main area of pain.

What are the Benefits of Dry Needling?

  • Relieves muscle pain
  • Releases trigger points
  • Promotes healing
  • Encourages tissue remodeling
  • Increases circulation
  • Improves flexibility and range of motion
  • Speeds recovery for sports injuries
  • Relieves fibromyalgia

Are there Side Effects or Risks to Dry Needling?

The most common side effects seen by therapists include:

  • Bruising
  • Bleeding
  • Temporary soreness

So what are the advantages of Dry Needling?

  • Quick and Fast Access
    • The advantage over other techniques is that we can treat parts of the muscle and deeper layers of muscles which our hands and fingers cannot reach. It works much faster than massage and relaxes the muscles much faster.
  • No Drugs Involved
    • There are absolutely no drugs used in dry needling, making it safer with less side effects to treat a large array of ailments like back, neck, shoulder and hip pain!
  • Immediate Pain Relief
    • Deactivation of the trigger points can bring immediate relief of symptoms, and then we can immediately stretch and train the muscles to work in their new pain free range of motion. Thus, results are achieved with dry needling which cannot be obtained with any other treatment.

  • Arthritis
  • Auto Injuries
  • Compression Fractures
  • Degenerative Diseases
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Functional Assessment

Are you frustrated by MORE PAIN in spite of TRAINING HARDER?


Sprinting, Jumping, Pushing, Pulling, Climbing, Lunging, Squatting – We do these activities in almost Every Sport and in our Daily Activities! These Functional Movements require using your Stabilizing Muscles (such as the deep core muscles that lie beneath your “six-pack”) to protect your spine from excessive twisting and over-extending. BUT Chronic Pain and Tightness or Reoccurring Injuries are WARNING SIGNS that something is not working correctly! Listen to your body’s natural warnings by scheduling a Functional Assessment with an Expert.

A Funtional Assessment involves a series of tests where our expert Physical Therapists will identify your specific areas of weakness and risks for injuries. Injuries and chronic pain can be heartbreaking to your athletic career and debilitating to your normal, everyday activities. Whether you use Functional Movements for Athletics or for Everyday Life, you can benefit from a Functional Assessment and ensure your Active, Pain-Free lifestyle.

Goals of the Functional Assessment

  • Assess your range of motion as you perform each functional movement.
  • Identify shortened and tightened muscle groups
  • Identify muscular imbalances and musculoskeletal abnormalities
  • Assess your Core strength
  • Assess your Neuromuscular Control

Kinesio Taping

Our certified professionals will apply Kinesio Tape to the area of your choosing. Benefits of Kinesio Tape include improved postural awareness, reduced inflammation, muscle inhibition, muscle activation and improved joint mobility. This technique of taping aids in reducing pain and enhancing muscle performance while still keeping full range of motion.

Benefits of Kinesio Taping include:

  • Postural Awareness
  • Reduced Inflammation
  • Muscle Inhibition and Activation
  • Improved Joint Mobility

Kinesio Tape is most frequently used by athletes— especially those who engage in prolonged activities. However, Kinesio Taping can benefit many people outside of the athletic world.

Common conditions treated include:

  • Back Sprains and Strains
  • Neck Aches
  • Shoulder Injuries
  • Knee Pain

Physical therapists are trained in the best wrapping technique depending on the part of the body in need of attention.

When properly applied, muscle taping often allows athletes to get back on the field. Other injured patients find their daily activities made easier with the support of tape holding tender areas in place.

Myofascial Release

To understand the benefits of Myofascial Release (MFR), it’s helpful to understand what fascia is. Fascia is a densely woven tissue that tightly wraps, connects and supports your muscles, weaving between and even penetrating them. It also covers every bone, nerve, artery, vein, and your internal organs, including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord.  Fascia is a giant interconnected piece of tissue from head to toe without any gaps, a specialized system of the body that has the appearance of a spider’s web.

Your Fascia affects movement, pain, sensation, and mobility in every part of your body. Trauma, injury, overuse, and surgery can create restrictions in the Fascia, which may produce pain that doesn’t show up in imaging technology like x-rays and MRI’s. In other words, myofascial restrictions can cause deeply felt pain that your physician may have trouble diagnosing and may try to treat with pain medications instead of offering natural treatment solutions.

Myofascial Release  (MFR) is a natural, safe and effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions. During your MFR session, the Physical Therapist locates myofascial areas that feel stiff and fixed instead of elastic. These areas may be restricting muscle and joint movement and can contribute to widespread muscular pain. The focused manual pressure and stretching used in myofascial release therapy will loosen restricted movement to aid in eliminating pain and restoring motion. MFR is one of many techniques used during our Physical Therapy sessions, but you can also schedule a Myofascial Release session to focus exclusively on relief through this advanced method.

Myofascial Release is often used to treat the following:

  • Post-surgical restrictions
  • Auto Accidents
  • Sports Injuries
  • Trauma
  • Back Pain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Plantar Fasciitis

Normatec: The Soreness Recovery System

Do you have soreness after exercise and oftentimes forget to stretch or perhaps can’t find the time to fill up a bag of ice to put on your aching muscles? Peristaltic Pulse Dynamic Compression, also known as NormaTec, is a soreness recovery system that uses intermittent pulsed and sustained compression that aims to reduce swelling, improve lymphatic return, increase blood flow and reduce pain.

Effects of Exercise on Muscle

Training results in an inflamatory process with associated swelling. The symptoms of this inflammation include the typical soreness you feel after working out at the gym including: muscle aches, swelling and movement impairment. So, while muscle and joint inflammation are a natural response to intense exercise, too much strain can cause an inflammatory response that can slow down healing at a cellular level. Basically, Normatec reduces the extra swelling after exercise, so your body finds it a bit easier to clear it out. Without it, we have to rely on rest, ice, and utilizing aching muscle contractions (acting as a local compression pump) to clear fluid in general and helping to heal the muscle tissue.

Benefits include:
Pain Reduction
Studies have shown that athletes have less pain immediately after their NormaTec session. The effects last longer than your average 15 minute compression session.

Vascular and Cellular
There’s plenty of research to prove that the NormaTec improves vascular and cellular functioning. When we know that tough exercise induces micro trauma to our muscle, increasing our blood flow and anti-inflammatory markers can only have a positive effect on our recovery

Increased Range of Motion
​NormaTec, as a result of reducing swelling and decreasing pain helps to improve joint mobility by decreasing strain from the muscles surrounding them.

Who Uses It?
Normatec is growing in popularity with Star Athletes, Gymnasts, Physical Therapists, and other gym enthusiasts.

Professional Stretching

We offer an assisted stretching service performed by licensed physical therapists using specific techniques such as Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, Foam Rolling, Reciprocal Inhibition, Ischemic Pressure, Myofascial Release and More!  Treatment is directed toward your tight areas and utilizes contract/relax techniques to increase joint and muscle mobility.

Professional Stretching is a form of physical exercise in which a specific muscle, muscle group, or tendon is deliberately flexed or stretched in order to improve the muscle’s elasticity and achieve comfortable muscle tone. The result is a feeling of Increased Muscle Control, Flexibility, and Range of Motion. Our expert Physical Therapists use advanced palpation skills to address any postural, muscular, or Range of Motion (ROM) dysfunctions noted during your stretching session. Addressing these impairments will optimize how your body functions in everything from Daily Activities to Advanced Sport Performance.

The Benefits of Professional Stretching Include:

  • Injury Prevention
  • Stress Relief
  • Improved Circulation
  • Enhanced Sports Performance
  • Improved Posture
  • Prevention of DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness)
  • Increased Energy

Sports Quick Recovery

Treat Your Body to a Deep Tissue Massage!

A Sports Quick Recovery deep tissue massage reduces fatigue, relieves muscle swelling and tension, and promotes the Quickest Recovery to prepare you mentally and physically for your next elite performance.   Many athletes also find deep tissue massage a necessity for pre-performance, during training, or for rehabilitation.

Whether you an Elite Athlete or a Recreational Exerciser, Sports Quick Recovery is a popular choice for boosting your body’s recovery process after exertion.

During your Sports Quick Recovery session,  a professional Physical Therapist will perform a deep tissue massage focused on breaking up scar tissue and working out “muscle knots” or adhesions that might be disrupting circulation and causing pain, limited range of motion, or inflammation. This type of massage therapy focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue and is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains. By allowing layers to move independently and glide freely on each other, we can improve posture, lengthen the spine, and improve the quality of the soft tissue.

Benefits of your Sports Quick Recovery Session

  • Increased joint range of motion (ROM)
  • Increased flexibility
  • Increased sense of well-being
  • Increased elimination of lactic acid
  • Decreased stress
  • Decreased neurological excitability (nerves more relaxed)
  • Decreased muscle tension
  • Decreased muscle spasms
  • Decreased chance of injury
  • Decreased recovery time between workouts
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved circulation
