  • Rock Tape

This colorful tape which is typically used by athletes, can be used to your advantage as well.

It is designed to help: 

  1. Turn down the volume on pain

  2. Decompress an area of swelling and inflammation

  3. Delay fatigue

  4. Normalize muscle tone

  5. Distribute stress

  • Graston

Graston therapy allows a clinician to get as deep into the tissue as necessary to invoke change, yet be sensitive to the patient's pain and tolerance. As the instrument moves over the affected area and comes in contact with any adhesions, any scar tissue and fascial restrictions within the muscle tissue are broken up. In time, this process will reduce or eliminate the adhered fibers, restoring range of motion and eliminating the associated pain. Graston therapy will transform your soft tissue injury into healthy functioning tissue.

  • SFMA

The Select Funtional Movment Assessment is a movement based diagnostic system, designed to clinically assess 7 fundamental movement patterns in those with known musculoskeletal pain. The assessment provides an efficient method to systematically find the cause and source of symptoms by logically breaking down dysfunctional patterns and diagnosing their root cause as either a mobility problem or a stability/motor control problem.

  • Myofascial Release

Tissue can become damaged in multiple ways. Tissue in this sense refers to the soft tissues of the body: muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia etc. Whether the tissue damage occurred from blunt trauma (falling off of a bike) or repetitive over-use (continually riding the bike), either can be treated effectively by helping the soft tissue return to its normal healthy state. Myofascial release is a hands-on therapy in which the clinician compresses specific tissue and guides the patient through specific ranges of motion to free up damaged tissue which in time allows for the return of proper motion. 

  • FTMI

Functional Taping for musculoskeletal injuries uses a variety of different taping methods to accomplish specific clinical outcomes. These methods include kinesiology taping, SPRT and strapping techniques. Testing of the joints and surrounding structures is required pre and post taping in order to assess which movements are inhibited or painful. Following this assessment the tape is applied to resolve/aid movemnent discrepencies. This technique can be utilized to improve posture, biomechanics and support tissues while in motion allowing an athlete to continue to participate in his/her sport.
