Bi- Annual Tune-Ups
Dry Needling is a technique used by physical therapists to decrease pain from trigger points, increase movement and restore function. A painful muscle can develop trigger points, which are taut bands of muscle fibers within a muscle which can lead to further pain and movement restrictions. With dry needling, a thin round tipped monofilament is inserted through the skin to the taut band to release the trigger points. This creates a “reset” which research has shown leads to decreased pain, reduced muscle tension and improved function at the sites where nerves transmit to the muscles. This produces an environment for the body to speed up healing and return to active movement. (Packages Available)
BLOOD FLOW RESTRICTION TRAINING
Blood Flow Restriction Training, or BFR, is a safe and evidence based rehabilitation tool that utilizes a tourniquet-like device to restrict blood flow while exercising.While using BFR, patients are able to achieve large gains of strength, while only lifting light loads. This tool can speed up recovery for those who have just had surgery, or allow strength gains for those have joints that cannot tolerate heavy loads. (Packages Available)
FALLS PREVENTION / BALANCE
Fear of falling may lead to further disability. Research has shown that a physical therapy program designed to address balance, gait, and strength can be beneficial in preventing people from falling and living in fear of falling. (Packages Available)
The leading cause for fatal and non-fatal injuries in the older American is related to falls. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
- One in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year.
- Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall.
- Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults.
- Falls result in more than 2.8 million injuries treated in emergency departments annually, including over 800,000 hospitalizations and more than 27,000 deaths.
- In 2015, the total cost of fall injuries was $50 billion. Medicare and Medicaid shouldered 75% of these costs.
- The financial toll for older adult falls is expected to increase as the population ages and may reach $67.7 billion by 2020.
The good news is that falls ARE NOT a normal result of aging. Falls are preventable and balance can be improved regardless of the age. With our evidence based training program, you will be given the tools necessary to improve your balance abilities and increase your confidence while on your feet.
