Whether assessing movement patterns, strength deficits or postural abnormalities, there is always an explanation for understanding pain.
Below are a handful of the treatment options available at Back2It to remedy problems like these.
Acupuncture needles are placed into symptomatic or hypertonic (tight) areas in a muscle to provide immediate relief in pain and an improvement in range of motion. A twitch response is often elicited indicating the release of a trigger point or muscle knot.
Muscles, tendons and joints are manipulated in a variety of ways to improve range of motion, reduce pain, enhance healing and regain correct postural alignment.
An individual can have an injury brought about from an imbalance of strength within the body. Once such strength deficits are identified, a tailored program can be created to ensure that the correct muscles are activating in the correct ways.
