Manual Therapy encompasses a multitude of skills that our therapists have received advanced training for. Manual therapy includes spinal mobilization and manipulation, joint mobilization, myofascial release, and muscle energy technique. Manual therapy is most successful in an unhurried, one on one environment, and by an experienced practitioner.
Functional Dry Needling
Functional dry needling is utilized by our physical therapist of myofascial pain and trigger point release. Extensive training is required in the state of Georgia to perform this technique. While an acupuncture needle is used to gain access to the muscle, functional dry needling is not acupuncture and is not based on eastern medicine.

Blood Flow Restriction Training
Blood Flow Restriction Training (BFR), is a safe and effective training technique used to increase muscular size and strength using a FDA-approved tourniquet system. Weight training with BFR can recreate the stimulus of heavy resistance training except very low weight is used during the exercise. Growth in the muscle tissue can occur in as little as two weeks. BFR is great for post-surgical patients who have not been able to regain muscle strength with conventional physical therapy or athletes looking to increase power and strength.
