Physical Medicine involves treating a wide range of problems from painful shoulders to spinal cord injuries. We diagnose and treat both acute and chronic conditions that cause pain, weakness and numbness. Our primary focus is to restore function through the use of examinations, procedures, and pharmacology.
Interventional Pain Procedures
Interventional pain management consists of minimally invasive procedures to reduce pain. Procedures are performed by specially trained clinicians and can be done in the office or under fluoroscopy (x-ray) guidance.
Electrodiagnostic studies (sometimes called EMG) are a commonly used technique to test the function of muscles and nerves. It can be helpful in evaluating weakness, numbness and pain. The two main components of an electrodiagnostic study include the needle electromyographic examination (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCS).
Each head injury is different, thus it takes thorough neurological assessment and a patient-orientated approach to help. Vestibular therapy is a special form of physical therapy that helps alleviate dizziness, motion sensitivity, blurry vision, balance dysfunction, or difficulty reading due to post concussion syndrome.
Physical Therapy will treat your specific physical ailment. We teach patients exercises to decrease muscle tension and restore function. We also utilize techniques such as dry needling therapy and vacuum cupping.
Chiropractic Medicine involves focused diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders. Treatment typically involves manual adjustment or manipulation of the spine. Initially our treatment will focus on helping your muscles relax in order to allow manipulation to be more effective.
Massage therapy is manual hands on work applied to the muscles and soft tissue. We provide specific soft tissue and myofacial release techniques to increase your bodies healing potential.
