Post-Surgical Rehabilitation – For spine, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, wrist, and other joints
Independent Functional Exams – For social security and third party payers
- Soft Tissue Mobilization – A hands-on manual procedure to mobilize adhesions, stretch soft tissue, gain range of motion, and improve overall function.

- Kinesio Taping – A procedure using therapeutic adhesive tape primarily on knees, shoulders, and ankles to increase proprioception, promote healing, relax overused muscles, and facilitate underused muscles.
