Myofascial Release – A holding technique that stretches and loosens the different layers of tissues restoring tissue equilibrium and proper function.
Muscle Energy Techniques – Alignment of vertebral bodies to decrease hypertonic and overstretched muscles allowing the body to return to a functional state.
Joint Mobility – At the chronic stage of an injury where scar tissue and adhesions have affected joint function, this technique can be used to increase range of motion.
Trigger Point Release – This technique involves applying a gradual increasing pressure directly to a small band of muscle. These trigger
points can cause pain locally or refer to another part of the body.
Trigger points occur when waste products build up due to injury, stress,
or repetitive activity.
