Dry needling is a treatment that places very thin needles into muscular trigger points. Dry needling often helps improve pain, tightness, and range of motion. Many conditions benefit immensely from this treatment including headaches, TMJ pain, low back pain, plantar fasciitis, tendinitis, and many more.
Active/passive muscle release is a hands-on technique that involves applying pressure to a trigger point/tight muscle, and taking that muscle through it's active range of motion. This helps to improve range of motion, decrease pain, and accelerate healing.
Cupping Therapy is a technique used to decompress muscles and soft tissue. It involves vaccuum suction to lift tissues into the cup to increase blood flow to an area. Cupping is a great tool to help with muscular tightness and tension, and often helps with pain relief as well.
Graston Technique is a form of instrument-assited soft tissue mobilization. It involves using surgical grade stainless steel instruments to locate and treat areas of soft tissue dysfunction. Graston Technique helps to decrease inflammation, increase blood flow, restore range of motion, and decrease tightness/tension in muscles.
