Dr. Price uses manual manipulation. Manual manipulation is done with the hands versus an instrument. Manipulation is used on spinal segments and joints that are out of proper alignment and helps to improve mobility of joints.
ART® is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue movement-based technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves.
Low Level Laser Therapy is a noninvasive, fast and effective modality that has been proven in clinical trial to reduce pain, reduce edema and promote healing. For more information, visit http://www.erchonia.com/faq.
Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation is a technique that combines passive stretching and isometric stretching to achieve maximum static flexibility. PNF stretching can significantly increase flexibility faster than static stretching. Tight muscles are more prone to injury. PNF stretching can increase flexibility which can reduce biomechanical abnormalities that can lead to painful injuries.
Physical rehabilitation is crucial to improving the strength, flexibility, and ROM following injury, surgery, or overused muscles.
Electrical muscle stimulation is the elicitation of muscle contraction to help control pain, decrease swelling, increase ROM, increase local blood circulation, and decrease muscle spasms.
Ultrasound is a deep heating modality that is most effective in heating tissues of deep joints. It has been found to be helpful in improving the distensibility of connective tissue, which facilitates stretching.
Therapeutic spinal traction uses manual or mechanical forces to stretch the spine. Traction may alleviate back pain by stretching tight spinal muscles that result from spasm and relieve nerve impingement.
Functional movement assessments can help to identify areas that are weak, tight, or restricted, which can lead to injuries. FMS can also help to determine the true source of an injury or dysfunction.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)
IASTM is utilized to help break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions in soft tissues.
The Kinesio Taping Method has taken the Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine world by storm. Developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase nearly 25 years ago in Japan, Kinesio Taping has become the gold standard for therapeutic rehabilitative taping. The proprietary method of taping uses a uniquely designed and patented tape for treatment of muscular disorders and lymphedema reduction.
The Kinesio Taping Method involves taping over and around muscles in order to give assistance and support or to prevent over-contraction. One technique gives the practitioner the opportunity to actually give support while maintaining full range of motion, enabling the individual to participate in physical activity with functional assistance. Another technique helps prevent overuse or over-contraction and helps provide facilitation of lymphatic flow 24 hours a day while applied. It is most commonly used in the acute stage of rehabilitation. Kinesio Tex Tape can be used in conjunction with other therapies, including cryotherapy, hydrotherapy, massage therapy, and electrical stimulation.
Kinesio Taping affects the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. Muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body but also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms. Consequently, so much attention was given to the importance of muscle function that the idea of treating the muscles in order to activate the body's own healing process came about. Using an elastic tape, it was discovered that muscles and other tissues could be helped by outside assistance. Employment of Kinesio Taping creates a totally new approach to treating nerves, muscles, and organs.
Since the introduction of Kinesio Taping into the US, medical practitioners from PTs, ATCs, OTs, DCs, MTs, to MDs have recognized and embraced this effective, safe, and easy-to-use modality. The method and tape allow the individual to receive the therapeutic benefits 24 hours per day because it can be worn for several days per application. Currently, Kinesio Taping is used in hospitals, clinics, universities, high schools, and by professional sports teams and most recently seen prominently in the Summer Olympic Games.
