Expert Theraputic Support for All Your Needs
Athletic taping is a technique used to support and stabilize joints and muscles during physical activity to prevent or manage injuries.
Therapeutic cupping assists with pain management, muscle relaxation, and improved circulation and often used with other therapeutic techniques such as massage or acupuncture.
Fascial Stretch Therapy
Fascial stretch therapy (FST) treats muscle imbalances, postural problems, and injuries using sustained stretches and traction to lengthen and loosen the connective tissue (fascia) surrounding the muscles and joints.
Functional Movement Screening
Functional movement screening is an assessment tool that evaluates an individual's movement patterns and identify any limitations or asymmetries that may increase their risk of injury.
Concussion screening is an evaluation that assesses the cognitive and physical symptoms of a concussion, a type of brain injury caused by a blow to the head.
