Thorough and ongoing EVALUATION includes Postural assessment, Functional movement screening, and Gait analysis. 

Then, I develop a customized TREATMENT plan which includes the following: 

Manual Therapy

(Therapist provides hands on techniques to decrease pain, improve hypo mobility/ stiffness of joints, increase relaxation of tissues, and give you more freedom in your body)

Ideta Integrated Physical Therapy
  • Spinal mobility Maitland techniques 
  • Manual traction techniques 
  • Joint mobility techniques 
  • Neural/ nerve mobilization 
  • Manual stretching 
  • Diaphragm release 
  • Accessory respiratory muscles release 
  • Soft tissue techniques (“targeted massage”)
  • Trigger point therapy: Identifies and releases exact sources of restrictions/ tension, resulting in decreased pain and increased function of the muscle
  • Myofascial release: Identifies and releases restrictions/ tension in the delicate, hyper-sensitive myofascia/ connective tissue through gentle, lighter pressures with more surface area

Active Therapy

(Patient participates in movement to attain greater range of motion and strength) 

Ideta Integrated Physical Therapy
  • Muscle energy techniques 
  • McKenzie method for spine 
  • Sport specific rehab 
  • Core strengthening/ stabilization 
  • Diaphragm neuromuscular re-education 
  • Ocular eye muscle rehab 
  • Propioceptive neuromuscular re-education (PNF) techniques: Diagonal patterns of movement that mimic functional activity- Therapist provides needed resistance with ideal hand placements on patient’s body.
