Location Features
Dry needling is a form of manual therapy in which fine needles are inserted into myofascial trigger points, tendons, ligaments, or near nerves in order to stimulate a healing response in musculoskeletal conditions. It is used to treat dysfunctions in muscle, connective tissue and diminish nociceptive (pain) input. Our specifically trained providers will use dry needling, in conjunction with exercises and other interventions, to get you better, faster, and back to the things you love to do.
Our hand therapists provide specialized rehabilitation of the upper limb including the hand, wrist and elbow following injury, disease or surgery. Our therapists work closely with you and your doctor to design a program to help you live life as fully as possible.
HawkGrips are precision-engineered instruments designed to detect and treat restrictions/scar tissue. These stainless-steel instruments resonate according to tissue irregularities so the clinician can more effectively detect and treat adhesions and scar tissue.
It is quite common for children to wet the bed, but less common and more embarrassing for children to wet or soil themselves during the day. Children who experience daytime or nighttime wetting and soiling can suffer low self-esteem, and they may have delayed social development. However, incontinence is a treatable condition, and it doesn’t need to be “waited out” until children outgrow it.
Manual therapy has been shown to be an important aspect of your overall plan of care. In comparisons of those individuals who are prescribed exercise alone versus those who also receive manual therapy, the group receiving both often has better outcomes. Our providers pair manual therapy with exercises and patient education to quickly best treat your condition and get you back to the things you love to do.
Mechanical diagnosis and therapy (MDT) is a philosophy of care which involves active patient involvement and education. It is an evidenced based approach that is trusted and used by practitioners and patients all over the world for neck, back and extremity problems. MDT’s key distinction is the initial assessment component – a safe and reliable means to accurately reach a diagnosis and only then make the appropriate treatment plan.
Many things can affect the overall health of the pelvic floor in men, often resulting in pain and/or dysfunction. Signs and symptoms may include muscular weakness resulting in loss of urine or bowel control, pelvic pain, testicular/scrotal pain, tailbone pain or erectile dysfunction. Pain can even appear in other parts of the body, and this affects how your body reacts. Many do not recognize that the overall health of the pelvic floor can affect all sorts of bodily functions.
Next Step is a five-week 10-session sports rehabilitation program that bridges the gap between in-clinic sports injury rehabilitation and return to high-intensity sport activities.
Physical therapy is at the core of what our team does each and every day. Physical therapists (PTs) are health care professionals who treat people for muscle, bone and joint conditions that limit their ability to move and perform activities in their daily lives or in sports. Physical therapy is used to help people return to work and play after an injury, surgery, or illness.
Most runners have a few simple goals: Run better. Run farther. Run faster. Run without pain. At the Institute for Athletic Medicine, our running program experts understand these goals. Whether you’re recovering from an injury or training to prevent one, our running specialists help you stay in top form.
The thrower's injury program aims to return injured athletes to their sport at or above their previous level of performance. With an understanding of the unique mechanical requirements of throwing, physical therapists develop an individualized return-to-throwing program to improve strength, mobility and throwing mechanics to prevent further injury. The return to peak performance requires involvement of coaches, athletic trainers and parents.
Changes in a woman’s body brought about by pregnancy, aging or illness often result in discomfort, loss of mobility and lifestyle changes. Pelvic pain and dysfunction may occur throughout all stages of a woman’s life. The Women’s Health Program at the Institute for Athletic Medicine offers specialized physical therapy and exercise programs to help treat or prevent these problems. Our physical therapists work with you and your physician to develop an exercise and treatment program tailored to your needs, including access to education materials for home use.
