Method

METHOD

Diagnostic Evaluation

Diagnostic evaluation in the areas of medical history, lifestyle, imaging, and electro-diagnostics (nerve conduction studies & electromyography). Additional tests will be ordered when medically necessary.

Functional Movement Screening (FMS)

FMS is a series of exercise tests that address the integrity of individual joints and the musculoskeletal system as a whole. FMS is a proactive approach that addresses compensation patterns and restrictions before they result in an injury.

 

TREATMENTS

 

Osteopathic Manual Medicine 

 

Anatomical balance can be improved by utilizing a range of techniques including, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, counterstrain, facilitated positional release, balanced ligamentous tension, cranial sacral therapy and myofascial release. These techniques specifically address disorders within muscles, fascia, tendons, joints, ligaments, nerves, viscera and vasculature systems.

Injections

Injections within joints and muscles can help to address degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis and myofascial trigger points that radiate pain. These procedures are used in combination with a comprehensive program that helps to restore anatomical balance.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture has stood the test of time in proving its value. It is one of the most studied practices within the field of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Each acupuncture point corresponds with the cutaneous branch of a spinal nerve. Through a series of complex interactions stimulation of acupuncture points improves self-regulatory capabilities of the body to restore balance.

 

Kinesiology Taping

 Physiological balance in the areas of proprioception (a sense of position/posture), muscle activation and flow of lymphatic fluid can be treated with various techniques of strapping or kinesiology taping. These techniques will specifically address swelling (especially after surgery or trauma), muscle tension, weakness, and support optimal joint position and alignment.

Exercise Physiology

Optimal function is achieved with exercise that addresses posture, biomechanics and muscle activation patterns. Exercise should also be comprehensive in that it balances strength, flexibility, endurance and neuromuscular control.

 

 

PREVENTION

Education

The most valuable element of healthcare is education to make informed decisions that facilitate health. Once health is restored, the focus shifts from treatment to prevention. Health is a dynamic balance and it requires maintenance. Health in structure and function provides resilience against physical, emotional and mental stress. With resilience, stress can resolve quickly and strength can be improved. Without resilience, stress can cause a crisis and breakdown. The goal of healthcare it to prevent illness and allow people to live full lives. This is achieved by teamwork of the patient with their healthcare providers.
