Injury Rehabilitation and Pain Relief

Our therapists use a combination of techniques from various fields of therapy.  We can provide an alternative to conventional treatment methods, or work in tandem with them, effectively providing our clients with key missing ingredients to a successful recove

Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that we can resolve quickly and permanently.

List of services available:

Athletic Therapy:

The Scope of Practice of a Certified Athletic Therapist includes the prevention, immediate care, and reconditioning of musculoskeletal injuries. Prevention includes musculoskeletal and postural evaluation, equipment selection, fitting and repair, warm-up, conditioning programs, prophylactic or supportive taping, and adapting to the activity environment and facilities.

Burdenko Method:

The Burdenko Method is a practical application of water and land exercises based on holistic approach to rehabilitation, conditioning, and training.  We handle a wide range of athletic injuries as well as other aspects of orthopedic rehabilitation.  This method can be applied to to a wide range of individuals, including elite professionals and world class athletes, disabled individuals, medical professionals, and people from every walk of life.  Water is a great healer and the ideal medium for rehabilitation, conditioning, training. The hydrostatic (passive) and hydrodynamic (active) properties of water provide an optimal environment for safe and effective therapy and conditioning. With little or no weight bearing in the water, the injured or deconditioned client is able to return to desired activities quickly and safely.

Active Release Technique:

ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.

Soft Tissue Release:

STR is considered the “father” of all the recent “release techniques” and has developed into one of the most effective therapies for all types of acute and chronic soft tissue pain.

Muscle Activation Technique:

Muscle Activation Techniques is a specific and unique process for evaluating an individual’s ability to develop efficient muscle contraction(s). MAT’s premise is that human movement and exercise are fundamental to human health and that muscle’s health (demonstrated by it’s ability to contract efficiently) is important for normal movement. Any loss of muscle(s) contraction efficiency may be demonstrated as a loss of motion and decreased physical performance, which may lead to subjective complaints and/or the loss of physical capabilities.


Put simply, the FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.  The FMS generates the Functional Movement Screen Score, which is used to target problems and track progress. This scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.  Exercise professionals monitor the FMS score to track progress and to identify those exercises that will be most effective to restore proper movement and build strength in each individual.


The Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) is a series of 7 full-body movement tests designed to assess fundamental patterns of movement such as bending and squatting in those with known musculoskeletal pain. When the clinical assessment is initiated from the perspective of the movement pattern, the clinician has the opportunity to identify meaningful impairments that may be seemingly unrelated to the main musculoskeletal complaint, but contribute to the associated disability. This concept, known as Regional Interdependence, is the hallmark of the SFMA.

Mulligan Mobilization:

Mobilization with Movement manual therapy techniques were discovered and developed by Brian Mulligan F.N.Z.S.P. (Hon), Dip. M.T., Wellington, New Zealand. This simple yet effective manual approach addresses musculoskeletal disorders with pain free manual joint “repositioning” techniques for restoration of function and abolition of pain.


The Kinesio Taping method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting.  In house, we offer a variety of this taping approach, each with its own merit and use.


Sports Taping:

Taping and strapping techniques to aid both the treatment and prevention of injury.  These techniques can be applied to any sport, and aid in the stabilization of a joint during the activities.

Sports First Responder and Event Coverage:

Sports First Responders provide the highest quality of on-field sports medicine and first aid.  SFR training is fast becoming the benchmark for front-line emergency interventions in sport.
