Physical therapy treatments

Partner with your PT to create a customized treatment plan. Depending on your condition, needs, goals and preferences, your plan may include:

  • Active release technique (ART) – Combines hands-on therapy with your body’s natural motion to break up scar tissue and improve your range of motion.
  • Biofeedback therapy – Helps you gain control over body functions like heart rate and muscle tension.
  • Cold laser therapy – Uses low levels of light energy to promote healing.
  • Craniosacral therapy (CST) – Releases tension through gentle touch therapy, especially around your skull and spine.
  • Dry needling – Helps release tense muscles and promotes healing.
  • Electrotherapy – Delivers safe, mild electrical impulses to a specific area to promote muscle relaxation, support healing and promote tissue growth.
  • Heat therapy – Eases pain and relaxes muscles.
  • Manipulation and mobilization – Uses hands-on techniques to improve function and ease pain in the spine, a joint or soft tissue.
  • Soft tissue mobilization – Uses manual therapy to relieve pain and improve function.
  • Spinal decompression – Stretches your spine to release pressure and ease pain; also known as spinal traction.
  • Therapeutic taping, including neuromuscular taping (NMT) – Uses strips of special tape to improve mobility and support your joints.
  • Ultrasound therapy – Provides deep heating to muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments.
