Specializations and Expected Treatment Modalities
Dry Needling

Dry Needling/ Orthopedic Acupuncture

Dry needling is a Western medical technique that involves the insertion of fine needles into trigger points and motor points within muscles to alleviate pain, enhance muscle function, and promote healing.

Manual Therapy

Manual Therapy/ Myofascial Release

These hands-on approaches utilize skilled manipulation of soft tissues, joints, and muscles to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall well-being.

neuromuscular re-education Main

Neuromuscular Re-education

Tailored exercises are pivotal in alleviating discomfort, enhancing range of motion, and fortifying muscular strength. Customizing exercise regimens to individual needs can directly address the underlying causes of musculoskeletal issues, whether stemming from injury, overuse, or inherent conditions.


Antagonistic Stretching

By engaging the reciprocal relationship between muscles, antagonistic stretching can help relax overactive or tight muscles and promote the lengthening of restricted muscle groups. This not only reduces pain and discomfort associated with musculoskeletal disorders but also aids in restoring proper joint function and balance.
