Orthopedic & Neuromuscular Physical Therapy

Our Outpatient Therapy team treats a wide range of orthopedic conditions from back and neck pain, to upper and lower extremity pain, to paint pain and stiffness, to pulled muscles and tendonitis. Our therapists work one-on-one with each of our patients to identify activity that causes or exacerbates back or neck injury pain. In true McKenzie Method fashion, we then teach the patient how to manage their pain independently with exercises and postures that alleviate pain and improve motion and function.  Treatment options also include trigger point dry needling (TDN) for back pain, neck pain, muscle spasm, hamstring issues, and sports injuries, as well as highly effective neuromuscular and supportive Kinesio taping techniques for carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and rotator cuff injuries.

Dry Needling at The NeuroMedical Center’s Outpatient Therapy Center continues to provide phenomenal results for patients suffering with a range of chronic conditions that cause pain or hinder mobility.
