Staying active and moving well is drivePT's number one goal! Depending on your individual needs, your treatment will include a combination of the following types of exercise: strength, flexibility, power, endurance, balance, and/or coordination.
HOME EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION
Proper home exercise prescription and progression are key to getting you better faster. An individualized home exercise program will be created for you at your first visit. Your program will be changed and progressed throughout your time at drivePT to help you meet your goals quickly!
Manual therapy includes techniques such as joint mobilization, soft tissue massage, manipulation and mobilization with movement. Research shows that manual therapy plus exercise helps improve function at a faster rate. Manual therapy interventions will be tailored uniquely to you and your body's needs.
Dry needling is a treatment technique used to help improve muscle function and pain through the insertion and stimulation of a thin filiform needle into the skin and into the muscle. Dry needling in combination with manual therapy and exercise will help you increase your performance and alleviate acute or chronic pain.
