We use physical and manual therapies as tools to downregulate an over reactive Central Nervous System.
For patients who are very sensitive, we tend to use more gentle manual therapies such as myofascial release, sub occipital release, gentle stretching and massage.
For patients who can tolerate more, we use muscle energy techniques and more vigorous manual therapy methods to gain range of motion and decrease the stiff achy feeling caused by muscle tightness and nerve irritation.
We incorporate exercises for postural correction, core strengthening, and overall physical strength and wellness. Overuse injuries such as plantar fasciitis and tendonitis are also addressed here in physical therapy.
