Manual Therapy

BioSynchronistics is an integrated, holistic approach that uses manual physical therapy, the force of gravity and the body’s inherent ability to heal itself to address common conditions involving nerves, muscles, soft tissues and bones. BioSynchronistics is particularly useful when earmarks of modern life, such as too much sitting, repetitive motions, pushing yourself too far/too soon in athletics, emotional stress, etc., cause your body to deviate from its natural equilibrium into malalignment. If you feel an unwanted, uncomfortable, tiring, painful, awkward tightness, strain, or functional limitation in your daily activities (the result of malalignment), you may benefit from the BioSchronistics technique.
Myofascial Release (MFR) is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Trauma, injury, inflammation, repetitive movements and/or surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions that can produce pain and dysfunction from tissue that becomes taught and inflexible. In turn, these restrictions affect movement, range of motion and alignment and can result in chronic pain and dysfunction. By using MFR, we can help to increase the pliability of your tissue by freeing the restrictive tissue, reducing pain and increasing flexibility, movement, and muscle activity.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Using CST, I’ll gently release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is highly effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, for example, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, injuries, stroke, and neurological impairments. This technique can also be used as a preventive health measure for its ability to aid resistance to disease.
Our practice will spend time focusing on areas that may need extra attention from mobilizating tight structures that are causing inflammation or restrictions. When performing manual techniques on our patients we sometimes hone in on problem areas that need extra attention and may be causing movement limitations.
Scar massage and mobilization is generally very important after a joint replacement to help reduce restrictions that can limit your range of motion. Scar tissue can also be extra sensitive which can cause pain when touched or while performing your daily activities.
