ABOUT POSITIONAL THERAPY:

Positional Therapy is a gentle, effective therapy for the treatment of chronic and acute muscular pain, increasing range of motion, and correcting posture, muscle imbalance, and body alignment, all while clients are fully clothed. IPT is founded on the osteopathic techniques of Strain/Counter-strain and Muscle Energy Technique. Strain/Counter-strain slackens a muscle and makes it shorter, while Muscle Energy Technique stretches a muscle and makes it longer. These techniques are highly effective for Lower Back Pain, Hips, Tension Headaches, Neck Pain, TMJ, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Tennis/Golf Elbow, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Sciatica, Knee Pain, Plantar Fasciitis, Fibromyalgia, and more. Wear loose-fitting comfortable clothing for sessions. 

 

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING / THERAPEUTIC EXERCISE:

Therapeutic exercise (corrective exercise) is the systematic execution of a wellness plan including physical movements or activities intended to correct mal-alignments in the body that are the root cause(s) of pain. The goal is to empower individuals to reverse muscle imbalances and prevent future impairments of body functions and structures. Therapeutic Exercise Wellness Plans enhance sports performance, reduce injury risk, optimize overall health, and enhance fitness and well-being. 

 

Andy custom designs your unique Therapeutic Exercise Wellness Plan during your session. This design is influenced by the examination findings and or medical diagnosis indicated. As with any type of therapy, each plan is designed to correct the specific areas. Plans are evaluated and modified as indicated by an individual’s progress and response to the plan.
