 Muscle Release Technique

Muscle release technique therapy is helping people to live without pain and tension caused by strain, overuse and trauma. Knowing why you’re in pain is really half the battle when it comes to musculoskeletal dysfunction. Muscle release technique therapy helps to break up that scarring to restore blood flow and oxygen flow to the injured area to allow for healing and regeneration to begin. It is one of the best ways of restoring the body’s own natural healing ability.

Graston Technique

The Graston Technique uses instrument-assisted soft-tissue mobilization to help break up scar tissue that is causing pain, soreness, inflammation and restriction. This massage-like treatment is commonly used to treat soft-tissue trauma in muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia. During treatment, the practitioner stretches connective tissue to help arrange it back to its original structure.


Kinesio Taping

If you’re experiencing pain or swelling, our team may recommend Kinesio taping. This therapy uses special tape to support muscles and joints while reducing pain and swelling. Upon completion, your muscles will feel rejuvenated and more energetic.


Injections for Pain Management

Trigger Point Injections- Needles are applied directly to muscle knots during trigger point injections. Most injections contain a corticosteroid. While they can be used throughout the body, trigger point injections are especially beneficial for muscle pain that is felt throughout the arms, legs, neck and lower back. The purpose of a trigger point injection is to relieve pain at the site of the knotted muscle by relaxing the knot.

Joint Injections– Joint injections are a regular procedure wherein a solution of anesthetic and corticosteroid is injected directly into the joint tissue. It is one of the most reliable methods of managing degenerative joint pain from osteoarthritis
