Traditional Therapy

Traditional therapy includes the use of modalities and procedures, such as moist heat, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, ice, and exercise programs.  These modalities and procedures are used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal and joint conditions, such as osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, or tendinitis.

Craniosacral Therapy

This hands-on treatment method addresses the craniosacral system, which consists of the bones of the skull and face, the spinal column, sacrum, membranes, and fluid that surround the brain and spinal cord. This system controls everything in the body, so any restriction or imbalance has long-reaching effects.

Manual Therapy

In manual therapy, practitioners apply gentle pressure with their hands on bones, muscle tissue and mobilize or manipulate joints to decrease pain caused by muscle spasms, tension, and joint dysfunction. Various manual therapy approaches, such as muscle energy or functional techniques, are often used.  Treatment benefits of improved joint and soft tissue mobility are often seen right away with these gentle manual therapy techniques. Relax, revive, restore, and renew with manual therapy.

Vestibular Rehabilitation

Manual therapy approaches can address certain forms of vertigo or dizziness producing excellent resolution of symptoms rapidly.  Other vestibular issues may be best addressed with craniosacral therapy or exercises. These exercises may help your central nervous system compensate for inner ear issues. These exercises decrease dizziness and vertigo, improve static, stationary, and dynamic moving balance, and restore your quality of life.
