Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping

The Kinesio Taping Method is a taping technique applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused muscles, and to facilitate muscles in movement. Because Kinesio Tape is a non-restrictive, highly elastic type of tape, it allows for full range of motion and function, unlike traditional sports tape. It can provide stabilization and support during a range of activities from sport activities to activities of daily living.

Video Running (and Gait) Analysis

Video Running (and Gait) Analysis

Your physical therapist will video record, analyze, and review your alignment, cadence, stride length, foot strike, and overall running posture using the Hudl technique.  Exercises and treatment will then be targeted to address any movement impairments contributing to pain or affecting running performance. Currently this service is available at our Ravenna location.

Mulligan Approach

Mulligan Approach

A manual therapy approach utilized by health care practitioners specializing in the care of patients with musculoskeletal pain. Mulligan practitioners seek to improve patient’s range of movement with the application of pain free hands on techniques. Both the clinician and the patient can quickly assess the value of this approach. If the techniques are indicated, an immediate improvement in pain and movement will be observed. The Mulligan Concept is not a passive treatment approach and many individuals benefit from self-treatment at home. Common indications for this approach include, but are not limited to; pain of a non-inflammatory nature, acute pain from injury, arthritic and post-surgical conditions, headache, cervicogenic dizziness, jaw or TMJ pain, acute or chronic ankle sprains, and lateral elbow pain or “tennis elbow”.
