Physical Therapy helps restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities of patients with injuries or disease. Affinity Integrated Healthcare physical therapists partner with “in house” or referring doctors to create and follow an integrated treatment plan, which acts as a road-map to achieve your goals.
Clinical massage therapy focuses on your individual needs, based on a thorough evaluation and your personalized Integrated Treatment Plan. It differs from traditional massage therapy because it is used to treat a specific medical problem. Also called medical massage or soft tissue manipulation, clinical massage therapy is performed in a professional medical setting to improve conditions diagnosed by a physician.
Active Release Technique
Active Release Techniques® (ART®) are patented, state of the art, movement-based manual techniques created to enhance the musculoskeletal system’s mobility and strength. They are effective therapy tools used to treat dysfunctions resulting from muscle imbalance caused by injuries to muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, or nerves.
MLS Laser Therapy
MLS laser therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment that uses light energy to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, promote wound healing, and repair soft tissue. It’s the only multi-wave locked, fully robotic laser therapy system available. This means deeper penetration with no heat, and the synchronized wavelengths cause a metabolic reaction in your cells that stimulates healing and pain relief.
Graston Technique® is manual therapy using handheld stainless-steel instruments to perform a specialized form of tissue mobilization on muscle fibers. It enables the detection and breakdown of scar tissue or adhesions in your muscles, tendons, and ligaments that cause pain and reduce range of motion. It fosters faster recovery and resolves some chronic conditions thought to be permanent.
Lymphatic drainage massage, also known as manual lymphatic drainage, relieves swelling that happens when medical treatment or illness blocks your lymphatic system. Lymphatic drainage massage involves gently manipulating specific areas of your body to help lymph move to an area with working lymph vessels.
Myofascial release therapy involves identifying your myofascial connective tissue restrictions using light manual pressure. These connective tissue restrictions can limit your muscle and joint movement, which contribute to widespread muscle pain. Focused, sustained manual pressure and stretching loosen restricted movement to reduce pain.
Alternative All Natural Chiro Care
Chiropractic Care focuses on acute and chronic conditions related to traumatic or non-traumatic injuries which restrict joint motion and cause muscles to tighten. These conditions may involve the spine, extremities and related nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on overall health. Our goal is to restore vertebral disc movement, joint range of motion, and muscle flexibility.
