Vestibular Rehabilitation

 

Vestibular Rehabilitation is a specialized form of physical therapy used to treat vestibular disorders or symptoms, characterized by dizziness, vertigo and trouble with balance.  

Cupping 

 

While cupping may have gained popularity in recent years, it has been around for a very long time.  Ancient Chinese, Egyptian  and Middle Eastern cultures have been using cupping for hundreds of years.  Cupping uses suction to create a negative pressure which lifts the tissue helping to increase hydration and blood flow to the treated area, ease up adhesions, eliminate excess fluids,  relaxes muscles, releases trigger points, and improves lymphatic flow. Evidence supports cupping as an effective treatment such as in low back pain, neck pain, and fibromyalgia. 

Graston Technique

 

The Graston Technique is a unique, evidence-based form of IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization) that enables clinicians to effectively and efficiently address soft tissue lesions and fascial restrictions resulting in improved patient outcomes. The Graston Technique can be used to treat any movement system dysfunction that has been determined to have a soft tissue component for example, tennis and golfer’s elbow, Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, patellar tendonitis and TMJ.
