Services & Techniques
Our therapists are committed to provided you with the highest quality care while utilizing a wide range of techniques and programs to helping you get better and be your best. Below you will find a description of the wide range of techniques regularly employed at Rebound Sports and Physical Therapy.
McKenzie Method of Spinal Mechanical Therapy
The method is founded on active patient involvement and education which ultimately empowers each individual to prevent recurrences long term. The method is effective with both acute and chronic back and neck pain.
Movement Systems Balance (MSB)
This systematic approach is based on the concept of how repeated and habitual movements and sustained postures alter and eventually damage tissues. A detailed examination can identify these movement pattern faults and muscle/joint imbalances and lead to a simple but effective corrective routine.
Primal Reflex Release Technique (PRRT)
Evaluation of a patient begins with the One Minute Nocioceptive Exam during which the body is scanned with rather light palpation for the presence of withdrawal and startle reflexes. Upon reexamination of the hypersensitive areas after applying the techniques, there is frequently a remarkable change in tenderness and pain.
Functional Dry Needling is a mechanical-device assisted manual therapy technique utilizing solid filiform needles for the purpose of resetting the neuro-musculoskeletal system. It changes the communication from the nervous system to dysfunctional muscles resulting in normalized muscle length and control.
Maitland Joint Mobilization
Using passive mobilization techniques for every joint in the body, including very gentle methods designed to calm down irritable joints and tissues as well as more vigorous manipulation for specific joint lesions, the Maitland techniques have application towards not only mobility but also pain reductions and reducing abnormal joint mechanics.
Gua Sha is used for a variety of injuries, both acute and chronic. Often the therapist can palpate knots in the soft tissues or muscles that indicate adhesions or poor blood flow which are contributing to the pain. In addition to this technique the therapist may prescribe exercises to be performed at home that also will aide in the healing process.
Muscle Energy Technique
Muscle Energy is an active technique in which the patient engages specific muscles while the joints are placed in exact positions. Gentle active muscle contractions are thus used to “inhibit” or relax the overactive muscles and help restore normal range of motion and function.
Postural Restoration (PRI)
The Postural Restoration Institute (PRI) was established to explore and explain the science of postural adaptations, asymmetrical patterns, and multiple joint movement sequences that result in pain. With this method dramatic changes in muscle tension, range of motion and pain can result by treating the underlying compensating patterns which may or may not be directly at the site of pain.
This treatment approach focuses on addressing peripheral vestibular system deficits that are contributing to dizziness and balance problems. The vestibular system is a complex mechanism in our inner ear that serves as our primary equilibrium system.
Weak or inhibited muscles can create the need for other muscles to tighten up in order to help stabilize the joints. Using Neuromuscular Re-Education, we get to the root of pain or injury by addressing muscle weakness rather than muscle tightness.
