REHABILITATION SERVICE INFORMATION


Activities Of Daily Living/Lifestyle Training

Movement activities are utilized to improve functional performance in a progressive manner to improve range of motion, strength and coordination. Adaptive equipment may be recommended.

Therapeutic Activities & Exercises

Individually designed to improve range of motion, strength, coordination, postural misalignments, muscle imbalances, flexibility, and functional performance.

Manual Therapy

  • Myofascial Release - A whole body hands on approach to evaluate and treat the muscles and connective tissues of the body. Restrictions in the fascia can lead to postural misalignments and abnormal tensions that can lead to lack of mobility and pain.
  • Cranio-Sacral Therapy - A gentle, light touch method of evaluating and enhancing function of the cranio-sacral system (membranes, CSF, bones of the skull, face, down the spine to the sacrum). An imbalance or restriction in the cranio-sacral system may cause sensory, motor or neurological impairments.
  • Joint Mobilization - This technique consists of moving one joint surface on another in a specific joint. Stretching the joint capsule and loosening of any adhesions is accomplished.
  • Soft Tissue Mobilization - Increases the fluid dynamics in tissues where restrictions prevent normal tissue motion.

Neuromuscular Re-Education

After assessment of the patient’s movement pattern, specific activities or exercises are implemented to arrest any improper movement/postural patterns.

Modalities

  • Electrical Stimulation - Applied to problem area to decrease spasms, pain, and provide improved circulation.
  • Ultrasound - Performed on problem area to decrease pain, spasm, calcification, joint stiffness and increase muscle, tendon, and ligament flexibility.
  • Hot/Cold Packs.

Splinting/Orthotic Fabrication

Following assessment appropriate splint application will provide support, improved function, or position modification to decrease pain or spasms.

Vestibular Rehabilitation

After assessment, treatment options are canal repositioning maneuvers, habituation exercises, instruction in compensatory strategies, exercises to strengthen posture, gait, and components of the balance system (eyes, ears and legs), exercises to improve gaze stability, instruction in home modifications, manual treatment of the cervical spine (neck).
