Our Model of Treatment

At Total Rehab, we value our hands as our most valuable asset in the clinic. All of our therapists are highly-skilled manual therapists, looking to diagnose each case individually using techniques such as joint mobilizations and tissue manipulation/massage for healing effects.

Along with a heavy foundation in manual therapy, we also perform:

What's Dry Needling?

Dry Needling, as Defined by the American Physical Therapy Association:

Dry needling is a skilled intervention that uses a thin liform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neu- romusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. Dry needling (DN) is a technique used to treat dysfunctions in skeletal muscle, fascia, and connective tissue, and, diminish persistent peripheral no- ciceptive input, and reduce or restore impairments of body structure and function leading to improved activity and participation.

How is Dry Needling different than Acupuncture?

Traditional Chinese Medicine explains Acupuncture as a technique for balancing the Flow of Energy or Life Force, known as Qi or Chi, believed to flow through meridians, pathways, in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, Acupuncture Practitioners believe that your Energy Flow will re-balance. Based off my knowledge of Acupuncture, this is a very brief explanation of what Acupuncture really is. (2)
