PHYSICAL THERAPY

physical therapy 
 
We offer one-on-one physical therapy services tailored to address your individual limitations in strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, and gait, as well as functional activity training that involves your particular line of work, sport, hobby, and everyday living rituals. 

The following physical therapy services are only offered in conjunction with MFR treatments due to optimum effectiveness and nullified results without first addressing the body’s imbalances through MFR:

Therapeutic Exercise, Neuromuscular  Re-education, Core Stabilization, Agility and or Plyometric Training based on individualized sport or hobby.

Therapeutic Exerciseis a personalized exercise or stretching program designed just for your body’s specific needs and goals. This may include simple and safe core exercises, isolated strengthening activities for noted imbalances, and stretching to address postural deviations and tissue extensibility; it can entail the instruction on the use of specific activities with physioballs, ankle or free weights, therabands, theratubing, medicine balls, and many other tools to aid in addressing particular findings.  

Neuromuscular Re-educationcan consist of postural re-training, balance, and coordination training achieved through a variety of techniques and activities; this can involve the use of mirrors, physioballs, foam rollers, floor markers, floor ladders, different floor surfaces of varying consistency, self-treatment tools, or other therapeutic/rehabilitative devices to aid in your healing process.

Core Stabilizationcan fall under the category of both Therapeutic Exercise and Neuro-muscular Re-education. It involves learning how to activate and build awareness around key muscles of the abdomen that are responsible for your posture and ability to perform everyday or work/sport-related tasks. Core stabilization activities involve a gradual progression from beginner levels to more advanced levels.

Agility and Plyometric training can improve coordination, speed, power, and sport-specific skill. Agility training may entail the use of, but is not limited to floor ladder, floor marker, and mini floor hurdle drills addressing quick vertical, forward, lateral, and diagonal movement. Plyometric training may involve the use of aerobic blocks and activities such as vertical or lateral box jumps, standing jumps, depth jumps, multiple hops, medicine ball throwing, or a combination of these and other movement power specific drills.

Gait Training entails functional training in ambulation with or without the use of appropriate assistive devices, such as canes, walkers, and crutches. It can involve training and education on proper sequencing and form while walking on flat or uneven surfaces. Gait training can coincide with balance and coordination training, as well.

  • Bulging Disc +

    What is it? Distension of the fibrous material that makes up the disc, or the cushioning tissue found between each vertebrae in the spine, resulting from direct trauma, heavy lifting, repetitive activities, or compression from tight muscles surrounding the spine. Bulging discs can cause neck pain, back pain, and/or radiating pain into the arms and legs. How Can MFR Help? Read More
  • Bursitis +

    What is it? Inflammation of the fluid filled sac found between bones and muscles resulting in pain and decreased motion. How Can MFR Help? Read More
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome +

    What is it? Tightness in the neck, chest, and wrist resulting in compression and swelling of the nerves that feed the hand resulting in numbness, tingling, and pain in the fingers. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is usually caused by repetitive movement of the arms and hands. How Can MFR Help? Read More
  • Cerebral Palsy +

    What is it? Cerebral Palsy is a general term used to describe a dysfunction of a portion of the brain called the cerebrum, which can affect muscle tone, active movement, cognition, and functional mobility like walking or sitting. It most often occurs at or before birth from a lack of oxygen to the developing fetus or from birth trauma. Cerebral Palsy can be associated with other problems such as balance and coordination issues, seizures, speech, learning disabilities and mental retardation. Muscle tone may be low or overly tight/stiff and movement hard to control or uncoordinated. Over time, abnormal tone and lack of functional mobility can cause joint contractures and pain from excessive stress on the joints associated with abnormal movement patterns. How Can MFR Help?

  • Cervical and Lumbar Injuries +
