Physical therapy is a medical science that specializes in relieving pain, promoting healing from injury or weakness, and allows one to perform better at work, play or leisure activities. Pain relief is achieved with all natural means that involves no side effects or drugs. Procedures such as the following are commonly performed:
- Trigger Point Dry Needling
Dry needling is a form of therapy performed by a trained physical therapist in which fine, tiny monofilament disposable single use needles are inserted into myofascial trigger points (painful knots in muscles), tendons, ligaments, or near nerves in order to stimulate a healing response in painful musculoskeletal conditions. Dry needling is not acupuncture nor Oriental Medicine; rather it is a modern, science-based intervention for the treatment of pain and dysfunction in musculoskeletal conditions such as neck pain, shoulder impingement, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, knee pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, or low-back pain. This solution can reduce muscle tension, pain, and help restore range of motion to get you back to performing your daily activities!
- Soft-Tissue Mobilization
The application of movement and force to muscles, ligaments, nerves or other soft-tissue for the purpose of promoting healing and normalization. Can be used to reduce pain. Sometimes discomfort may accompany the procedure.
- Pressure-Point Release
In this procedure the therapist or clinical assistant searches for muscles that are actively in spasm or causing pain. They then push on the muscle for 1-2 minutes. Initially it will cause soreness but should diminish steadily. This helps to normalize the muscles and improve circulation in that area.
- Myofascial release
A safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the fascia (connective tissue that supports 80% of our body) and has been known to eliminate chronic pain.
- Joint Mobilization
The application of movement and force to a joint for the purpose of increasing motion and range. Can be used to reduce pain. Sometimes discomfort may accompany the procedure.
- Therapeutic Exercises
Strengthening and balancing the muscles around your joints are essential for good movement, stability and pain relief. Physical therapists are the leading experts in helping those with pain, arthritis, obesity, diabetes and heart disease get fit and strong safely.
There are many specialties within the physical therapy profession. They include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Sports Medicine
- Women’s Health
- Ergonomics and Injury Prevention
- Industrial/Work Hardening
- Strength and Conditioning
- Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehab

- Certified Hand Therapy
Even though there are many specialties and settings within the realm of physical therapy, all physical therapists are trained to accelerate the body’s own healing process, hasten recovery, promote better movement, foster return to activities that promote quality of life. There are no side effects, no drugs, or invasive procedures involved with physical therapy. It is typically the first and best option for most any muscle/joint/nerve/tendon problems, even those that might require surgery since therapy can shorten the recovery time and improve the outcome of the surgery.
