What is massage exactly and why should our patients consider massage as part of their therapy?
Massage is a term describing a variety of techniques to therapeutically stimulate or soothe soft tissues of the body. Massage works to relax and stimulate muscles by increasing blood flow, temperature, lymph flow, and also to break-up scar tissue between muscle fibers.
Massage is used for more than relaxation. It is incredible at reducing swelling, muscle spasms, and improving range of motion. Oftentimes, when applied appropriately, insurance will cover massage as part of a patient's therapy. Massage can also be used exclusively as therapy.

Effectively Treating Acute and Chronic Injuries
The Graston Technique®, originally developed by athletes, is changing the way clinicians - including athletic trainers, chiropractors, physical therapists, occupational therapists - and patients view treatment of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries.
Graston Technique® is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The Technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
Tight muscles continue to aggravate injuries and prevent proper healing. By personally stretching you we improve your flexibility, range of motion, and speed recovery time. We will not hand you a worksheet and expect you to get better at home.
Exercise balls are utilized to improve core strength and endurance. Research has shown improving core strength will reduce individuals back pain. We follow the step-by-step protocol to properly coordinate your core strength and prevent future low back pain injuries.

Many people with low back injuries have lost normal muscle patterns in their low back and stomach. Studies have shown specific exercises will reduce further low back injuries. One of the benefits of Yoga and Pilates is their improvement of the body's strength and muscle pattern coordination.
We follow a goal oriented step-by-step process of identifying weak core muscles and then properly retraining muscles for long term benefit. Exercises begin very simply on the floor and then progress to an exercise ball. More challenging exercises are added only when a person is ready for them.
We have been very successful with chronic low back pain because of our combination therapy and personal attention. People who thought they were going to be limited by back pain forever have been amazed at their results and new ability to experience life.
