Treatment for Muscle and joint pain

Musculoskeletal pain is pain involving the muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissues. Musculoskeletal pain can occur with acute injury or repetitive stress over time. Your pains are specific to you and your daily activities. We prescribe and personalize care to address your specific needs and goals. Below are some of the modalities we may use with you during your treatment.

 
 

Joint Mobilizations

Our doctors can also mobilize peripheral joints (joints outside of the spine). Gentle force is applied to the involved joints in order to restore proper movement. If a joint is not moving well, the surrounding structures including, but not limited to, muscles, nerves, ligaments, tendons and fascia will not be able to function well. Once proper motion is restored to the joint(s), adequate circulation is promoted, which will ultimately allow for recovery of the injured tissues.

 

Soft Tissue manual therapies

To address the muscles, connective tissue, and fascia that are involved in musculoskeletal pain, our providers will prescribe a combination of manual therapies to help reduce your symptoms and improve your function. These therapies may include:

  • Active Release Technique (ART)

  • Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)

  • Cupping

  • Kinesiology Tape

  • Dry Needling

 

Exercises and Rehabilitation

The muscles and joints in your body are meant to move. Movement is a key player in helping minimize pain. As part of your treatment, we will prescribe exercises, activities and movements to help manage the pain, restore mobility and range, and improve stability and strength. Your goals are our goals, and we want to get you back to the things you love doing.
