Our Evaluation and Treatment Techniques

Find Out What How We Can Help You

At Spine & Sports Injury Center we use a number of highly-effective evaluation and treatment techniques to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA)

The Selective Functional Movement Analysis (SFMA) is designed to assess your body’s limitations and determine how these limitations are affecting your movement. The Physical Therapists at Spine and Sports use aspects of this examination to not only evaluate your current injury, but discover what caused that injury in the first place.

Functional Movement Screen

FMS is the screening tool used to identify limitations or asymmetries in seven fundamental movement patterns that are key to functional movement quality in individuals with no current pain complaint or known musculoskeletal injury.

These movement patterns are designed to provide observable performance of basic loco motor, manipulative and stabilizing movements by placing an individual in extreme positions where weaknesses and imbalances become noticeable if appropriate mobility and motor control is not utilized.

Anatomy in Motion (AiM)

A world of ‘upside down thinking’ to both challenge and embrace existing anatomical concepts. Over the years working with and studying motion has brought to life new rules and new possibilities when working with the human body. My intention is simply to determine the natural movement patterns and processes, used by the human body and the brain to create an environment for self-correction of it’s many ailments and pathologies. Is it possible to break anatomy down to it’s rawest state and understand how muscles, bones, joints, nerves and fascia are all set up perfectly to create not just an environment for motion but also an environment for healing?

Diversified Manipulation

After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints.

Graston Technique

Using these curved stainless steel instruments, we can successfully resolve adhesions and scar tissue, offering a pleasant sense of release.

Active Release Technique®

Athletic injuries and many muscle-related conditions respond quickly and permanently with this state-of-the-art soft tissue technique.

Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT)

NeuroKinetic Therapy® corrective movement system is a sophisticated bodywork modality that can be used as both an assessment and rehabilitative technique for low back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel, and other injuries.

ARP Wave Therapy

Accelerated Recovery Performance stimulates your nervous system using a patented bioelectrical current, combined with other exercise techniques, to help you relax and boost your natural recuperative ability.

Active Isolated Stretching

AIS provides effective, dynamic, facilitated stretching of major muscle groups as well as functional and physiological restoration of superficial and deep fascial planes.

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy accelerates your body’s own natural healing process through photo-bio-stimulation.

TPI Certified (Med Level 2)

Titleist Performance Institute’s (TPI) movement analysis system to examine the Golf Body-Swing connection.

Foundation Training

Injury prevention, posterior chain strengthening, and core stability classes and individualized coaching.

Fascial Manipulation

A manual method that has proven effectively restoring tensional balance and recover your health.

Dry Needling

Dry needling (DN), also known as Intramuscular Manual Therapy (IMT) has been found in the literature to improve pain, disability and function. The DN technique is a modern Western medical modality that is not based on Traditional Chinese Medical acupuncture, in that the purpose of DN is not to alter the flow of Qi or energy along traditional Chinese meridians. Dry needling has it’s own theoretical concepts, terminology, and clinical application.
