+ Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is a hands-on technique for joint and tissue mobilization with varying philosophies and forms. The physical therapists at Peak Physical Therapy utilize manual physical therapy techniques that pertain to each individual’s past medical history, in order to normalize tissue length and pliability. Examples include Kaltenborn or Maitland joint mobilization techniques, fascial stretch therapy, functional massage, soft tissue massage, myofascial release techniques, and functional dry needling.

+ Alter G

The innovative AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a game changer in physical therapy rehabilitation. Whether you’re a patient or an athlete dealing with lower body injuries, chronic pain or neurological conditions that inhibit mobility, you can benefit from the unweighting capabilities. The Anti-Gravity Treadmill helps a broad spectrum of people – top level athletes, orthopedic and neurologic patients, pediatric, geriatric and those looking to lose weight – to achieve their personal health, wellness or performance goals.

With it’s unique ability to unweight a body’s joints up to 80% of body-weight, The Alter-G Anti-gravity Treadmill enables you and your physical therapist to move your training and rehabilitation forward by:

Allowing you to walk or run with no pain while maintaining abnormal gait
Reducing stress on joints and injured areas of your lower body
Giving you the confidence and ability to run or walk longer and recover faster with less pain
Thanks to its precise unweighting technology, the AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill® allows you to push your training and physical therapy rehabilitation further than ever before.

You can:
Reduce gravity’s impact by selecting any weight between 20% and 100% of your body weight by 1% increments
Rehabilitate lower extremity injuries with less pain and less impact
Improve mobility, strength and safety for those with neurological conditions
Provide a safe way to lose weight and exercise more intensively while unweighted
Train without pain and reduce the stress to joints and muscles

+ Post Partum Rehabilitation

Post partum rehabilitation includes exercise programming and guidelines, lumbopelvic stability training, and appropriate therapy for low back pain often associated with core weakness during and after pregnancy. Therapy is aimed at restoring normal function.

+ Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular rehabilitation techniques can be utilized with patients suffering from balance and proprioception deficits. Vestibular-specific rehabilitation includes, but is not limited to, treatment for decreased balance in function, loss of balance with activities of daily living, vertigo related to benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), neuromuscular rehabilitation for sport-specific performance.

+ Treatment of spinal dysfunction including low back, neck, and SI joint pain

Treatment for spinal dysfunction includes an individualized assessment and subsequent plan of care. Physical therapists at Peak Physical Therapy often utilize a combined approach, including manual therapy, graded exercise prescription, and modalities in order to alleviate spinal and postural dysfunction.

+ Flexibility Training/Fascial Stretch Therapy

Flexibility is an essential part of feeling your best. In your private, one-hour session, your therapist will manually stretch you from head to toe, or modify a session based on individual need. Whether you are attempting to address years of body malalignment and restrictions, or targeting specific areas, our professional stretch therapist will help you achieve your flexibility goals.

Unlike active stretching, which attempts to isolate and stretch specific muscles, fascial stretch therapy targets fascia, the connective tissue found in, around, and between joints. To stretch the fascia, a certified FST therapist gently pulls then moves the legs, arms, spine, and neck in a smooth motion at various angles in order to remove pressure between joints, release joint-lubricating synovial fluid, and improve flexibility of muscles. Fascial stretch session cost: $125, which includes postural assessment and home exercise program, with a certified fascial stretch therapist and licensed physical therapist.

+ Functional Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a general term for a therapeutic treatment procedure that involves multiple advances of a filament needle into the muscle in the area of the body, which produces pain and typically contains a Trigger Point. There is no injectable solution and typically the needle that is used is very thin. Most patients will not even feel the needle penetrate the skin, but once it has and is advanced into the muscle, the discomfort can vary drastically. Usually a healthy muscle feels very little discomfort upon insertion of the needle; however, if the muscle is sensitive and shortened or has active trigger points within it, the subject may feel a sensation much like a muscle cramp — which is often referred to as a ‘twitch response.

The twitch response also has a biochemical characteristic to it, which likely affects the reaction of the muscle, symptoms and response of the tissue. The patient may only feel the cramping sensation locally or they may feel a referral of pain and/or similar symptoms for which they are seeking treatment. A reproduction of their pain can be a helpful diagnostic indicator of the cause of the patient’s symptoms. Patients soon learn to recognize and even welcome this sensation, as it results in deactivating the trigger point, reducing pain and restoring normal length and function of the involved muscle. Typically, positive results are apparent within 2-4 treatment sessions but can vary depending on the cause and duration of the symptoms and overall health of the patient.

Dry needling is an effective treatment for acute and chronic pain, rehabilitation from injury, and even pain and injury prevention, with very few side effects. This technique is unequaled in finding and eliminating neuromuscular dysfunction that leads to pain and functional deficits. www.kineticore.com

+ Running Gait Analysis

Gait analysis is a method used to assess the way we walk or run, highlighting biomechanical abnormalities. During a running gait analysis, a physical therapist will assess through real time viewing and video examination your running gait from several different angles at different treadmill speeds and inclines. The initial assessment will be a video screening and analysis. This assessment will address any movement dysfunction during running or walking, which could lead to injury. A video review will be completed and a follow-up visit is included, with specific therapeutic exercises aimed at providing guidance and structure, in order to support individual changes necessary for optimal running biomechanics. Running gait analysis cost: $250, which includes evaluation, video analysis and write-up, and home exercise program by a licensed physical therapist (2 visits).www.xtrainingschool.com

+ Neurological rehabilitation

Neurological rehabilitation aids in the recovery of nervous system function after injury. This helps to minimize any functional compensations or alterations, aiding in recovery of the nervous system. Neurological rehabilitation is often utilized in conjunction with any injury or surgery since the nervous system is affected with all dysfunctions.

+ Myofascial release

Myofascial Release is a type of soft tissue therapy used to release physically restricted musculoskeletal groups. It is believed that chronic tension, trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures cause the fascia, which envelops the muscle, to become fixed in a particular position, known as a myofascial restriction. create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.) Manipulation of the myofascial group is believed to resolve the restriction.

+ Injury Prevention and Wellness Programming

Through the use of wellness programming, we can create an individualized strengthening, agility, and flexibility package for your specific needs as a means for injury prevention. During sessions focused for injury prevention, we will take into account the activities that you love or compete in to create your individual wellness program, making you the best that you can be at your favorite pursuits.

+ Concussion Management

Concussion baseline testing, and post concussion screening with appropriate rehabilitation, based on screening results.
