Blood Flow Restriction Therapy

Blood flow restriction therapy is a treatment technique that uses a specialized machine to increase muscle strength quicker than traditional exercise—offering high-intensity benefits with lower intensity training. During specific exercises, a state-of-the-art machine restricts venous return, while allowing arterial blood flow. Benefits include quicker healing, decreased pain, less soreness compared to traditional exercise, improved cardiovascular endurance and increased bone density.

Concussion Therapy

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that affects the brain’s ability to function. Concussions are caused by a sudden blow to the head, or body, which causes the brain to bounce rapidly or twist in the skull. Our team of therapists help individuals continue their recovery after they have been diagnosed with a concussion. We provide post-concussion care through an individualized patient evaluation to determine the presence of post-concussion symptoms that last beyond the anticipated recovery time and create customized treatment plan tailored to each patient’s unique needs. Treatment often concludes with an individualized reintegration plan for daily activities such as school, sports, work, etc. Learn more about concussion rehabilitation. Concussion therapy services are provided at Grants Ferry.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling, also called trigger point dry needling, is a technique used by a certified physical therapist. A dry needle is inserted into a muscle or “trigger point” (knots within the muscle) to reduce pain and improve the ability to do normal things throughout your day. This technique is used with exercises and stretching to treat neck and back pain, cervicogenic headaches, shoulder pain, elbow and more. Dry needling services are provided at our Pavilion Physical Therapy Clinic.

Lymphedema Therapy

Lymphedema therapy, also known as Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) is a series of techniques performed by a specialized lymphedema therapist to help decreasing swelling commonly found in the legs, arms, head, and neck. A therapist will teach you exercises to help move the extra fluid out of the affected area.  Manual lymphatic drainage, a massage-like technique, is used to move the trapped fluid in the swollen area to an area with working lymph vessels. Compression bandages are used to help to move the extra fluid out of the swollen areas.  Once therapy in the clinic is complete, compression garments are purchased to help maintain decreased edema at home. These garments require a prescription to ensure that the proper amount of compression is used. You will need to be measured by a professional to ensure proper fit.  Lymphedema therapy services are provided at the UMMC LM Building.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a manual therapy technique used by therapists to ease pain and reduce tension. Your therapist will work to identify areas of muscle tightness and utilize myofascial release techniques to improve these problem areas. These techniques help improve “trigger points” and are used to treat a variety of disorders including: cervicogenic headaches, neck pain, back pain, and various muscle strains. Many of our therapists have received advanced training in manual therapy and myofascial release techniques.
