Muscle Manipulation ($120, cash pay service)

A system of soft tissue/muscle manipulation used in treating a vast array of physical complaints and pains such as low back pain, headaches, neck and shoulder pain, muscle spasms, muscle overuse, sciatica, and more.

ART (Active Release Technique):

  • An advanced soft tissue mobilization technique in which the tightness and range of motion of muscles, tendons, and ligaments are evaluated and treated utilizing specific applications of pressure and patient movement.- Schedule ART

    MET (Muscle Energy Technique):

    • A manual therapy technique that mobilizes the muscle tissue and allows for muscular relaxation by placing the patient in a position specific to their particular muscular complaint while the physician utilizes a small amount of muscular contraction against the patient in a particular vector. This is a great technique for acute muscle spasms and dysfunction that allows for increased range of motion, decrease in pain, and decreased muscle stiffness.- Schedule MET

    Strain-Counterstrain Technique:

    • This physical medicine technique utilizes a combination of stretching the site of muscular dysfunction alternating with active resistance of the muscle. This allows for greater range of motion and pain alleviation to be obtained from the site of muscular dysfunction. – Schedule Strain-Counterstrain

    Pelvic Blocking Technique:

    • A pair of pelvic blocks (or wedges) are utilized by having the patient lay either prone or supine directly over the pelvic blocks in a position consistent with their joint/disc dysfunction and allow gravity to gently manipulate the joint/disc back into its resting state. This can be a non-invasive, pain free treatment of sciatica, some cases of disc herniation, low back pain, and certain cases of hip joint discomfort. – Schedule Pelvic Blocking Technique

    MFR (Myofascial Release Technique):

    • A physical medicine technique that utilizes the soft tissue mobilization and gentle pressure in order to facilitate the unwinding of fascia and the alleviation of muscle pain. Often times dysfunctional fascia can be subjectively felt as a dense region of muscle tissue that is painful to the touch, a “trigger point” as it is sometimes referred to, and oftentimes is associated with referred pain. MFR is very effective in treated TMJ dysfunction and many cases of muscular tightness and discomfort.Schedule MFR (Myofascial Release Technique)
