As a clinician, I use a hands-on approach and a one-on-one interaction with a patient to achieve desired outcomes. I treat all types of injuries including:
Back and Neck Pain
Post Arthroscopic / Reconstructive Surgery
motor vehicle accidents
Sprain / Strain Syndromes
Pysical Therapy Rates
Virginia State Law allows a client to be seen for one visit without a referral from a physician.
A hands-on technique that utilizes gently sustained pressure into a fascial restriction that results in an elongation of the fascia. Fascia is a tough connective tissue, which spreads throughout the body enveloping soft tissue, organs, bones, and nerves in a 3-D web which extends from head to toe. Fascial restrictions are undetectable by standard testing.
A technique that focuses on the kinematics of a specific joint for correcting joint alignment and /or mobility. The mobilizations are utilized by producing various amplitudes of gliding along the joint plane. This technique may also be used for pain control.
A technique that involves the voluntary contraction of a person's muscle against a distinctly executed counterforce. This technique is used in conjunction with neuromuscular re-education and strengthening to assist with the rehabilitation process.
A gentle, non-invasive treatment that works with the body's rhythmic motion (craniosacral motion) to assist in the release of a restricted pattern. Craniosacral has been used to treat back pain, chronic fatigue, depression, headaches, migraines, sciatica and TMJ disorders.
STRAIN COUNTER STRAIN
A technique developed by Lawrence Jones, D.O., to evaluate and treat somatic dysfunctions. The muscle is placed in a shortened position for a predetermined period of time to assist in arresting inappropriate proprioceptor activity. It is beneficial in relieving pain and eliminating the dysfunction.
A hands-on therapeutic exercise to facilitate neuromuscular control with movement.
SOFT TISSUE MOBILIZATION
A technique used to improve circulation, decrease spasms, decrease pain, and assist in releasing trigger points.
The use of specific exercise to rehabilitate an injured area and improve function and movement.
