The Kinesio Taping® Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization(IASTM)
Dr. Warren has been trained in the Graston Technique®, which utilizes weighted surgical grade stainless steel instruments to break up myofascial adhesions. This method is effective in treating chronic conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and many other ailments.
Ground Force Method(GFM)
GFM is a movement system where the focus is on the quality of your movement. We believe that before you move more, move stronger, or move faster, moving better should be the goal. If you don’t move well, you are putting your fitness, skill, and strength practice on top of a faulty foundation. Thus, inefficiency and potentially break down becomes easier. GFM is all about helping to create a solid movement foundation that will allow you to do life better. GFM isn’t only for athletes however. Any one can stand to move better from young high school students experiencing the effects of sitting in a desk all day, to senior citizens worried about getting up and down. GFM can be tailor fit to suit your goals and needs. Achieve freedom through movement.
Impulse Adjusting Instrument®
This hand-held instrument applies a series of highly controlled “taps” to misaligned vertebral segments, avoiding the twisting, turning or “cracking” of spinal joints.
This is a general term that describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem—such as a frozen shoulder. People tend to assume therapeutic massage means deep tissue massage, and that they will get a very strong massage. But this is not always the case. Deep tissue massage is great at breaking down scar tissue and getting your blood circulating, but it may not be what you need on a particular day. A good therapist will apply the specific techniques and the right amount of pressure to address your need, and sometimes that’s a lighter touch.
The Activator Technique® is an effective and gentle method of correcting spinal misalignments through use of a hand-held instrument that delivers a light, controlled, fast thrust without causing undue strain to the patient.
After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints.
