Our Modality Treatments
This treatment provides two effects on the body:
Non-Thermal Effect: Introduces sound waves into the site which causes cavitation, which are microscopic gas bubbles around your tissues that cause rapid expansion and contraction. This effect will speed up the cellular process, improving the healing of the tissues.
Referred to as E-Stim, this treatment uses different forms of electrical current through surface electrodes for the relief of muscle spasms, pain, swelling, and muscle re-education and strengthening during physical therapy.
Hot & Cold Packs
This superficial heat application relaxes tight muscles, improves circulation, and helps to prepare tissues for exercise and mobilization during physical therapy.
Ice application helps reduce acute inflammation resulting from injury or surgery. Its purpose in our rehabilitation program is to provide pain relief.
This physical therapy procedure uses manual and mechanical traction to decompress the spine. This procedure can be used to treat a variety of spinal issues, including sciatica, degenerative disc disease, radiculopathy, herniated discs, stenosis, and more.
Our therapists at Mossy Creek Rehab are Kinesio® Taping-certified. The Kinesio Taping Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process. Kinesio provides support and stability to the muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. During physical therapy, it also provides extended soft tissue manipulation which prolongs the benefits of manual therapy.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
This process involves scraping the skin to create bruising and release unhealthy elements from injured areas. The purpose of this treatment is to increase blood flow and stimulate healing.
This is a form of manual physical therapy that facilitates gentle movement of joints in order to restore joint motion. The goals of joint mobilization include:
Increasing Range of Motion & Coordination
Soft Tissue Mobilization
This is a hands-on manual therapy technique for your muscles, ligaments, and fascia. The goal of soft tissue mobilization is to break down or reduce adhesions, reduce swelling and edema, decrease pain, and improve the range of motion and functionality.
Using various methods of exercise, our physical therapists at Mossy Creek Rehab can transform weak muscles into stronger muscles. In your personalized rehabilitation program, we may use a combination of elastic bands, free weights, treadmill, bike, and manual pressure to strengthen your body.
Balance & Falls
Our physical therapy programs utilize the HUMAC Balance System from CSMi Solutions. This system uses a computerized force plate platform to detect changes in weight shift and compares values to normal subjects data. This allows us to pinpoint risk factors and determine why you’re more prone to balance issues and falling.
Our physical therapists specialize in treating vertigo. We use a manual treatment called Epley Maneuver, which is the sequential movement of the head into four positions. Your head stays in each position for approximately 30 seconds. Vertigo is usually treated in our office in two or three visits.
