Soft Tissue Release (STR)
A dynamic technique that is a combination of myofascial release, therapeutic massage, and active assisted stretching. By applying pressure while performing a specific stretch in multiple planes of movement, it results in the correction of muscle imbalances, reorganization of scar tissue, working to decrease pain, improved muscle performance, and release of muscle tension. STR can aid acute and chronic pain for patients who were injured recreationally, at work, or in an automobile accident.
Electrical Therapy Techniques
Ultrasound is an electrical therapy technique that uses sound waves to promote healing, increase blood flow, decrease inflammation, and relieve pain. Shockwave therapy is another electrical therapy technique that uses shock waves for the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, primarily applied to chronic conditions, particularly those affecting medium to large sized tendons.
Athletic taping is the process of applying tape directly to the skin or over pre wrap in order to maintain a stable position of bones and muscles, as well as, support ligaments during athletic activity.
