We advance the practice of physical therapy through a comprehensive examination of treatment methodologies in order to provide patients with the most efficient and cutting edge techniques available in a caring manner to eliminate their core problem.

SPECIALTY SERVICES WE OFFER

DRY NEEDLING

Dry needling is a skilled intervention performed by a licensed physical therapist that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and release underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of pain and movement impairments. Dry needling is a technique used to treat dysfunctions in skeletal muscle, fascia, and connective tissue, and diminish persistent peripheral nociceptive input, and reduce or restore impairments of body structure and function leading to improved activity and participation.

Performance Rehab is proud to offer dry needling for our patients and clients. Please contact us for more information or discuss this with your current healthcare provider if you feel you would benefit from this technique.

REHABILITATIVE/KINESIO TAPING

Rehabilitative taping, including Kinesio Taping®, promotes natural healing without restricting range of motion.

ASTYM® TREATMENT

Astym® treatment is a regenerative therapy provided by specially trained and certified physical and occupational therapists. Instruments are applied on top of the skin to locate dysfunctional (unhealthy) soft tissue and transfer pressure and shear forces to the underlying soft tissue structures.

BLOOD FLOW RESTRICTION THERAPY (BFR)

If Personalized Blood Flow Restriction (PBFR) training is for you, your therapist can supplement this to your plan of care. This is used primarily for a rapid increase of strength and hypertrophy (increased size of muscle tissue).  Primarily, used when our patients have muscle atrophy due to an inactive period following an injury.  We utilize the PBFR, the approved Personalized Tourniquet System device. Personalized blood flow restriction rehabilitation training (PBFR) is a game-changing injury recovery therapy that is producing dramatically positive results.

CUPPING THERAPY

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups made of glass, plastic or rubber on your skin for a few minutes to create suction under the cups. There are many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

ALTER-G

Performance Rehab uses the most State of the Art technology in helping you recover from your injury or surgery.  At the 87th and I-35 clinic location, our Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill allows us to have you bear weight, walk, or run at less than full body weight, making it less painful and easier to return you to your previous level of function.  For more info, click here.
