Muscle & Joint Clinic focuses on three keys to living pain-free: releasing tight muscles, remobilizing stiff joints, and restoring muscle strength.
Releasing Tight Muscles
The first step to living pain-free is to release tight muscles that impact a patient’s ability to move properly. This is done through treatments that directly manipulate muscle tissue including:
- Therapeutic massage
- Active Release Technique (ART)
- Graston/FAKTR Techniques
- Kinesiology taping
- Shockwave Therapy or Acoustic Compression Therapy (ACT)
Remobilizing Stiff Joints
The second step to living pain-free is to remobilize stiff joints to address cumulative trauma and get joints and tissues moving normally. This is done through treatments that help to realign joints including:
- Instrument-assisted adjustment
- Recommended stretching
- Other activities depending upon the type of pain or injury
Restoring Muscle Strength
The third step to living pain-free is to restore muscle strength to minimize compensation patterns, and prevent injuries from coming back. This is done through treatments designed to build strength including:
- Muscle or muscle group-specific rehabilitation
- Core strength building
- Pilate’s exercises
Muscle & Joint Clinic’s patient-focused approach ensures that treatment and rehabilitation will allow you to get back to your activities, pain-free.
