Listed are some of the services we provide to our patients:
- Manual Therapy:
Manual therapy is the utilization of hands-on techniques to address the soft tissue and joint dysfunction causing your pain. These techniques can include joint mobilization, myofascial release, soft tissue mobilization, cupping, HawkGrips instruament assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), muscle energy, manual stretching and much more. The therapists at Elite Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy integrate manual therapy techniques into each and every patient’s treatment plan to achieve successful results.
- Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN):
Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN) is an effective and efficient technique used by physical therapists in which a thin solid filament needle is inserted into an irritated muscle. TDN focuses on muscles with hyperirritable portions called trigger points. These trigger points can be painful and can potentially cause stiffness and restricted motion resulting in dysfunction for patients. We have seen remarkable results in improving function and decreasing pain with various conditions and injuries. TDN requires a prescription from your physician and a signed consent form before treatment. Our therapists are certified through Kinetacore and for more information check out their website.
- Functional Training:
Functional training is a technique used by the therapists at Elite Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy to address the goals of their patients. During your initial evaluation we will discuss your goals or activities you desire to return to pain free. This allows the therapist to design specific exercises to retrain you for those sports specific, work-related, or everyday life tasks.
- Sports Performance Training:
Sports performance is one of the passions of Elite Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy’s therapists. We work with various types of athletes from weekend warriors to your high level athletes. We understand the demands of each unique sport and the need to incorporate specific rehabilitative techniques to address these demands when returning to a sport safely after an injury. Our goal is the same as yours to see you successful return to your sport.
- Injury Prevention Programs:
The prevalence of sports related injuries are on the rise. Elite Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy understands the need for injury prevention programs and the incorporation of these programs into our treatments. We will perform a through evaluation to determine abnormal findings that may limit performance and increase your risk for future injuries. We believe that prevention of these possible injuries is the best treatment. Call our office to schedule an Injury Prevention Screening.
Elite Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy believes your feet are the foundation of your biomechanical system. Due to this belief, we provide orthotic services to our patients. Most insurances do not cover the expensive cost of orthotics and therefore, Elite is here to provide affordable orthotics.
- Athletic/Kinesio Taping: Our therapists are dual credentialed in Physical Therapy and Athletic Training. We are trained in the vast athletic and Kinesio taping techniques utilized for preventing injury and enhancing performance. Elite uses this knowledge to help get our patients back in the game.
- Blood Flow Restriction Training: Blood-flow restriction training can help patients to make greater strength gains while lifting lighter loads, therby reducing the overall stress placed on the limb. By applying the right amout of external pressure to an extremity, its possible to maintain arterial inflow while occluding venous outflow distal to the occlusion site. Research shows that BFR works great for the post-operative population to achieve greater gains with less stress on the region recovering from surgery.
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization: Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) is derived from a technique pioneered by Drs. Vaclav Vojta, a Czechoslovakian neurologist, and Pavel Kolar, PhD, PT. Dr. Vojta developed a unique therapy that was originally intended to treat children with cerebral palsy. Since its inception in the 1960's, it has grown and expanded and is now indicated for a variety of conditions in both the child and the adult. Prof. Pavel Kolar further evolved and expanded this technique to make it more dynamic and to yield faster results. The purpose of the technique is to promote proper activation and coordination of the neuromuscular system. This has yielded amazing success in treating pain syndromes as well as various neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy, scoliosis, and stroke cases. While DNS is routinely used in Europe, it has only recently started to gain popularity in the United States.
