Specialty Services We Offer
Core Stabilization Program
This program will introduce the foundations of core stabilization and is designed to help patients improve the central ‘core’ muscles of the body. Successful application of this program will help patients to minimize the risk of injury, lessen pain, and improve function. These gains will occur with improved strength, posture, and mobility. Core stability is improved by consistently performing exercises designed to increase the power of muscle movement resulting in more efficient and coordinated mobility. The physical therapist will provide instruction to ensure each patient performs the program safely and effectively. The physical therapist will progress the patient through increasingly demanding functional movements while maintaining a neutral, pain-free position of the spine. More advanced goals will be attained by improvements in balance and coordination in a program tailored to the patient’s individual goals.
Cold Wave Laser & MLS Laser Therapy
This FDA-cleared, Class IV technology synchronizes dual wavelengths with continuous and pulsed emissions bringing you the most advanced laser therapy system available on the market today. Laser therapy uses light to favor and accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules that cause different biological effects. It produces a photochemical, photothermal and photomechanical effect. Source: Cutting Edge Laser Technologies
Dry needling is performed by a licensed clinician that uses a needle to pierce the skin and release underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of pain and movement impairments. Dry needling is used to treat dysfunctions in skeletal muscle, fascia, and connective tissue, and diminish persistent peripheral nociceptive input, and reduce or restore impairments of body structure and function leading to improved activity and participation. PEAK Sport and Spine is proud to offer dry needling for our patients and clients. Please contact us for more information or discuss this with your current healthcare provider if you feel you would benefit from this technique.
Blood Flow Restriction Therapy (BFR)
Pelvic Health Management Program
This program addresses specific issues of the pelvic region, such as urinary/fecal incontinence, pelvic floor prolapses, pelvic floor disorders, or dyspareunia (painful intercourse). A conservative approach is utilized to re-educate and allow patients to regain control of their pelvic floor to avoid unnecessary surgical interventions and regain functional bladder or rectal control. Therapists with specialized training, determine the appropriate tools, such as biofeedback, bladder training, muscle re-education, that will be necessary for you to return to a complete continent and pain-free lifestyle.
