SOFT TISSUE RELEASE TECHNIQUES
☆ Muscle release technique
A therapeutic technique that combines compression, extension and movement of a muscle to help stretch and alleviate pain. It aims to break up scar tissue, lengthen the muscle and improve range of motion. Muscle release is performed manually. There are also alternative forms of soft tissue therapy that can be performed though the use of instruments including the hypervolt and rock blades.
Instrument assisted soft tissue massage (IASTM) tool used to help relieve muscle soreness, promote tissue healing, improve blood flow to area of injury and improve range of motion.
A percussion massage device that is used to help relieve muscle soreness, improve range or motion, promote circulation and accelerates warm up and recovery .
Electrical stimulation uses electrical current to cause a single muscle or a group of muscles to contract. It works by creating a frequency that stimulates nerves and deeper muscle tissue. It is used to reduce pain, improve tissue healing (by bringing blood flow to the area), improve range of motion and help promote muscle recruitment.
LOW LEVEL LASER
A form of light therapy that is applied to the skin on the surface of an injured area. Laser has been shown to be effective in decreasing pain or inflammation and promote tissue healing.
Clinical pilates is a rehabilitation-based treatment approach. Dr. Fabbro will assess the structural and functional limitation of the individual on her initial examination. She will then design a pilates program based around the individuals unique needs. This method helps to reduce pain as well as improve strength, mobility, balance and core stabilization. Clinical pilates is a great adding to any treatment plan as it acts to prevent the recurrence of the same injury.
