achieve optimal outcomes with specialized therapies
In addition to traditional physical therapy, specialized treatments can speed recovery, reduce pain more quickly, and help to control recurring conditions. These include:
The goal of lymphedema therapy is to reduce swelling, restore function, decrease physical pain, and prevent the development of infection. Lymphedema develops when a normally functioning lymphatic system is blocked or damaged.
Lymphedema therapy consists of massage, wrapping, exercises, and fitting for compression garments by a certified lymphedema therapist (CLT). Therapy for lymphedema should be initiated as early as possible to avoid irreversible damage.
Trigger Point Dry Needling
An excellent treatment for muscle pain and muscle tension, trigger point dry needling involves inserting tiny monofilament needles into a muscle or muscles to stimulate and release tightened muscle bands and decrease pain.

Electrical Stimulation uses a special device that delivers an electrical current to stimulate a therapeutic effect on the body. When applied to tissue, the electrical current elicits a muscle contraction which can cause certain physiological and chemical responses that alter pain impulses.
Who can benefit from these treatments?
Individuals seeking to reduce pain and muscle spasms, improve flexibility, increase blood flow and reduce swelling from excess fluids (edema).
