Kinesiology taping has become a very popular physical therapy treatment in the past several years. Body Mechanics Physical Therapy offers the use of two top-rated Kinesiology tape brands—Kinesio Tape and Rocktape. Kinesio Tape focuses largely on circulation and proprioception. Conversely, the goal of Rocktape is to modify fascia restriction. Both tapes work to improve healing time and restore normal function.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) is the categorical name for a number of soft tissue mobilization methods (similar to massage) with the use of a tool or instrument. This broad category includes Graston therapy, Rock-tools, and a number of other tool-based therapies. IASTM therapy improves circulation and breaks up scar-tissue and fascia restriction to help the body heal and improve mobility.
and Vertigo Rehab
Physical therapy has become an increasingly popular treatment for those suffering from concussion or vertigo symptoms. Through a series of manual techniques (for vertigo) and a select series of ocular-motor exercises (for both concussion and vertigo) physical therapy can help to alleviate a patient’s symptoms.
Cupping Therapy is a form of treatment in which a clinician applies cups to the skin to create suction. This directs blood and nutrients to targeted areas of inflammation or pain to improve circulation.
The methodology and the effects of Cupping Therapy differs by clinician. At Body Mechanics Physical Therapy, we specialize in dry cupping, which involves creating the suction with a mechanical pump rather than a flame.
