What is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is the treatment of physical dysfunction or injury to the neuromuscular and musculoskeletal systems. Physical therapy focuses on achieving pain-free optimal functioning to enhance the quality of life through the use of therapeutic exercises/activities, modalities and manual therapy.
What is Manual Therapy:
Manual therapy is a specialized skill that utilizes specific hands-on technique to treat soft tissues and joint structures for the purpose of modulating pain, increasing range of motion, reducing or eliminating soft tissue inflammation, inducing relaxation, improving contractile and non-contractile tissue repair, extensibility and or stability, facilitating movemement and improving function.
What is Dry Needling:
Dry needling is a treatment used to release trigger points within a muscle fiber. Dry needling is an invasive inactivation of trigger points by the use of an acupuncture needle. Inactivation of a trigger point by needling can rapidly eliminate pain. Trigger points within a muscle are at times the cause of pain in a local area or can refer pain to other areas of the body. Symptoms of a painful trigger point are commonly mistaken for other dysfunctions such as tendonitis or nerve entrapments. The formation of trigger points may result from a variety of factors, such as severe trauma, overuse, mechanical overload, or psychologic stress. An injured or overloaded muscle fiber leads to involuntary shortening, loss of oxygen supply, loss of nutrient supply, and increased metabolic demand of local tissues. Dry needling releases chemicals that a trigger point holds within the muscle tissue that have caused the muscle fiber to have a sustained contraction.
