Postural Advice And Assessment
A postural assessment is to assess and see how your body stands and holds it self. It shows what muscles need to be strengthened and what muscles need to be loosened. This is very important.
The use of a variety of diagnostic tests to help identify the specific nature of your musculoskeletal injury or condition.
Range Of Motion Testing(ROM)
ROM(range of motion) testing is a measurement of movement around a joint. It identifies which muscles are restricting movement, or if the joint itself is restricting movement.
Rehabilitation Exercises And Stretches
Advice on what corrective exercises and stretches to perform to strengthen and stretch the correct muscles to make sure your injury/pain/dysfunction does not return in the future.
Spinal/Joint Adjustment-Yumeiho Therapy
Adjustments help to loosen and realign the joints, which provides and increase in range of movement and a decrease in pain and restriction.
Dry needling is the use of solid filiform needles(also referred to as acupuncture needles) for therapy of muscle,tendon,ligament pain.
Deep Tissue Massage

A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes local and referred pain to other parts of the body. Trigger point therapy is the release of these specific points.
