Can physical therapy benefit you? If you have suffered a musculoskeletal injury, have lost some mobility or even suffer from tightness in your muscles or joints, physical therapy can help you get back to feeling like yourself. Our therapy staff may be of benefit to you by focusing on areas of pain management, physical strength, mobility, flexibility and increasing functional independence.
Talk to your doctor today about a complimentary general assessment that is available for each of our patients through their membership with Priority Physicians. After your assessment, we can discuss pursuing further therapy as needed.
Although massage therapy is great as a relaxation technique, there are other benefits that can blossom from a good massage. Massage therapy can be used as an accompaniment to a physical therapy regimen in an effort to speed the recovery process from an injury. It is also often used in training for an upcoming athletic event. Speak with your doctor about other benefits that may include increased circulation, enhanced immune system, promoted nervous system function, reduced blood pressure and pain relief. To schedule an appointment with our preferred physical therapist, call our office today.
Medicine-Free Pain Relief Therapy
Divya Narayanan, the owner of One2One Therapy, is a Doctor of Physical Therapy specializing in medicine-free pain relief. She has been a Physical Therapist for over 15 years and is certified in Trigger Point Dry Needling, a medicine-free technique she has been practicing for over 6 years. Divya uses this technique in collaboration with patient education on specific stretches of involved muscles, posture awareness, thermo applications and home exercise programs to restore function quickly.
“This method of treatment for pain uses acupuncture needles to directly influence soft tissue in vivo, which is more effective and ultimately the most successful modality for normalizing muscle tone,” shares Divya.
Trigger point dry needling involves multiple advances of a thin filament needle (acupuncture needle) into a ‘trigger point’ to stimulate the healing process of soft tissues relieving muscle tension and pain. The technique is effective in treating musculoskeletal dysfunctions with few side effects and no medication.
The technique can be used in the treatment of: Neck/Back pain (including radiating symptoms into arm or legs), Headaches, TMJ, Tennis or Golfer’s elbow, Hip/Knee/Foot pain, Sciatica, Piriformis Syndrome, Sacroiliac Dysfunction, Rotator Cuff Pain/Range of Motion limitations of the shoulder and many other dysfunctions caused by muscle spasms.
The most common question patients ask when looking into this technique is does it hurt. According to Divya, there can be mild soreness and discomfort with the needle insertion, however due to the very small diameter of the needle without a central hollow (not hypodermic) pain is minimal.
If you are interested in any of these members-only services, please call our office today at 317.338.6400. We can schedule an in-office appointment for you or help you set up at-home therapy.
