Techniques Used


SP.OR.T.S. specializes in the education, treatment, and rehabilitation of individuals with all types of injuries and pain. Our physical therapy services are designed to quickly reduce your pain and restore your normal function.

MANUAL THERAPY

Manual therapy involves specialized hands-on techniques that target areas of your body that are limited in motion and works to improve your movement and reduce your pain. Manual therapy is especially beneficial if you are experiencing spine problems, joint injuries, or other orthopedic conditions


Our expert physical therapists have years of specialized training to provide gentle, specific, hands-on therapies to help you feel better. These include soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, and neuromuscular techniques.

THERAPEUTIC EXERCISE

Part of the recovery process may require an increasing range of motion of joints and strengthening of weakened muscles of your injured or painful areas. This provides better support to the joints and prevents pain from recurring. Our experts have years of training in the use of gentle therapeutic exercises.

DRY NEEDLING

Dry Needling (DN) is a treatment technique that utilizes thin, solid filament needles designed to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying neural, muscular and connective tissues. DN evokes a healing response in painful neuromusculoskeletal conditions and improves movement impairments. Typically, myofascial trigger points are needled; which are painful “knots” in tight muscle tissue. 

MODALITIES

Modalities are different applications of the following items to reduce swelling, pain, and help the healing process.

  • Electrical Stimulation

  • Ultrasound

  • Heat and Cold Therapies

KINESIO TAPING

Kinesio Taping utilizes a strong, flexible “tape” that is activated by body heat. When properly applied, it provides stability and support to the joints and surrounding muscles and improves circulation while still allowing for full range of motion. Whether you are an athlete competing at the highest level or someone looking to find relief from your daily activities, Kinesio Tape might be right for you!
