Trigger point dry needling is a treatment for muscular tightness and spasm. It involves placing a very thin needle into the muscle at the trigger point in order to cause it to contract and then release, improving flexibility and therefore decreasing pain caused by chronic muscle spasm.
Lightforce Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
Low-level laser therapy promotes: central and peripheral neuron repair; suppression of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2); enhancement of peripheral endogenous opioids; upregulation of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF); angiogenesis; collagen synthesis and decorin expression during tendon and ligament repair; reduction in fibrosis, suppression of conduction along unmyelinated C fibers; and inhibition of histamine release.
Low-level laser irradiation can have a positive response for tissues that exhibit microvascular compromise and become anoxic secondary to metabolic injury with resulting microvascular inflammation, oxidative injury, and mitochondrial dysfunction. Lasers of low-intensity initiate analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and biostimulatory effects, resulting in an increase in local microcirculation and increased healing. Increasing microcirculation induces an essential function in the tissue repair process and in pain control. This process allows increases in oxygenation and nutritional supply to tissues. This process allows for the expulsion of metabolic byproducts, which may contribute to pain.
LSVT BIG is delivered by a physical therapist or PTA. Treatment is administered in 16 sessions over a single month (four individual 60-minute sessions per week). This protocol was developed specifically to address the unique movement impairments for people with Parkinson disease. The protocol is both intensive and complex, with many repetitions of core movements that are used in daily living. This type of practice is necessary to optimize learning and carryover of your better movement into everyday life!
LSVT BIG® has been documented to be effective in the short term in training increased amplitude of limb and body movement (Bigness) in people with Parkinson disease with documented improvements in amplitude (trunk rotation/gait) that generalized to improved speed (upper/lower limbs), balance, and quality of life. In addition, people were able to maintain these improvements when challenged with a dual task.
Start exercising NOW – as soon as possible. Physicians rarely refer their patients to health and fitness programs at diagnosis because medications are very effective early on in alleviating most of the symptoms, and patients experience little change in function. Referrals to exercise, wellness programs and physical/occupational therapy are best initiated at diagnosis, when it may have the most impact on quality of life before noticeable changes in the individual begin to occur.
Post Rehabilitation Training
Post-physical therapy training to prevent injury or reinjury; to continue all of your wellness and fitness goals; and to achieve optimal strength, range of motion, balance, and health.
Sports Performance Enhancement Training
In increasing number of young athletes are developing overuse injuries as well as suffering from knee and extremity trauma due to year-round sports specific activity without cross training. The increase is particularly dramatic in girls participating in sports including soccer, basketball, volleyball, and gymnastics.
Our goal at One. is to reduce the risk of injury in young athletes by teaching specific types of neuromuscular re-education. Athletes will perform exercises that include core strengthening, plyometrics, lower extremity strengthening, balance re-education, and endurance training with an experienced physical therapist assistant under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist to prevent injury and maximize their athletic ability.
Pilates is a body conditioning method based on the principle that, before working the peripheral parts of the body, the core needs to be strong and stable. Targeting deep postural muscles, Pilates works by building strength from the inside out, rebalancing the body and bringing it into correct alignment. Pilates will also improve your posture as you achieve a balance between strength and flexibility.
Clients follow a system of exercises using various apparatus such as mat, reformer, chair, barrels, magic circles, and ped-o-pul. Once versed in the techniques, you can move on to sessions using the Pilates reformer, chair and tower to completely challenge your body.
