We use a variety of pain relieving techniques that serve various purposes. The following techniques may or may not be used for your condition.

Manual Therapy: Manual Therapy is a hands-on approach to treating soft-tissue and joint structures. Through the process of mobilization with manual therapy, a physical therapist will diagnose and treat problems with a goal toward modulating pain, increasing range of motion, reducing or eliminating inflammation, and improving function and movement.

Myofascial Release: Myofascial Release is a form of soft-tissue therapy in which the therapist will either directly or indirectly mobilize the fascia, a web of connective tissue covering the muscles, organs, and skeletal structures. The goal of Myofascial Release is to both reduce pain and increase range of motion.

Joint Mobilization: Joint Mobilization is a type of manual therapy with the goal of achieving a therapeutic effect. When applied to the spine, this process is called spinal mobilization.

Muscle Energy Techniques: Commonly used in both osteopathic medicine and physical therapy to treat dysfunction, there are several techniques included in the category of muscle energy techniques where the patient’s own muscles are utilized to correct underlying problems.

Massage: Therapeutic massage is the process of mobilizing soft tissue in an effort to reduce pain or tension. Deep Tissue Massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle tissue or fascia. It will focus on muscles located below the surface of the top muscles and is beneficial for athletes or individuals involved in heavy physical activity or people suffering from chronic pain.

Therapeutic Exercise: Therapeutic exercise is the prescription of specific bodily movement in order to correct impairments from accidents or injuries, improve musculoskeletal function and circulation, mobilize joints, and overall maintain a state of well-being.

Spinal & Joint Stabilization: When a joint or joints move they require stabilization. A joint stabilization exercise program reduces abnormal irritation to joints and muscles. When the spine requires stabilization, this is called spinal stabilization.

Retraining of Body & Joint Mechanics: Our Eureka physical therapists work with patients to retrain them on how the body and joints work in order to help patients learn the proper ways to move without injury or strain.

Sports Rehabilitation: Sports rehabilitation or sports rehab is the field of therapy that specializes in preventing, diagnosing, and treating injuries relating to sports or exercise. Sports medicine topics include injuries and rehabilitation related to the injury of joints or muscles commonly caused by engaging in physical activities.

Strength & Conditioning Training: Strength and Conditioning Training is the use of resistance to build the strength and stability of muscles. Proper therapeutic strength training can result in increased bone, muscle, tendon, and ligament strength as well as improve joint function and overall health and well-being.

Stretching & Flexibility Training: Our Eureka physical therapists will use stretching and flexibility training to help balance muscle groups which receive strain due to muscle or tissue tightness and stifness. The use of proper stretching and flexibility will reduce the risk of injury, increase range of motion, and reduce muscle soreness after activity.

Work/Sport Specific Exercise: The use of work or sport specific exercises is currently a common trend. Specific exercises are designed to target and build specific muscle groups commonly used in a specific sport or other work activity. When our physical therapists analyze how the patient walks as well as their posture during various activities relating to their daily routine. It is used to optimize performance and movement efficiency as well as eliminate any unecessary strain.

Balance & Proprioception Training: The sense of your body in space is proprioception. Balance and proprioception training is a commonly used technique in rehab, but is also frequently used by physical therapists to prevent injury.

Traction: In orthopedics, traction is the process of using distraction to relieve pressure on joints and the the structures inside them.
