Manual therapy techniques performed at Sarrica PT:
Consists of the gentle hands on skin application of sustained pressure into fascial restrictions. Over an extended period lasting 5 minutes or greater, this will allow the fascial tissue to elongate leading to increased range of motion (more movement), better fluid transportation throughout the body (less inflammation), less pain and restoration of function.
A passive movement of a joint by a health care professional to restore and/or relieve pain. Movements are graded on a scale of I-IV with grades I-II focusing on pain reduction and grades III-IV focusing on restoring joint motion.
Active soft tissue release
A hands-on soft tissue technique which focuses on relieving tissue tension via the removal of adhesions as a result of muscle overuse. This technique consists of a pin and stretch by the medical provider with an active participation by the individual being treated. This is repeated from muscle origin to insertion longitudinally until an increase in range of motion is witnessed.
When applied to a joint extremity (wrist/knee) or spinal joint it is a high velocity low amplitude manual thrust technique that is beyond the patient’s voluntary control. The purpose of the manipulation is to increase range of motion immediately, decrease pain, and reduce acute muscle spasm.
Movement with Mobilization
A manual approach to improving joint movement restrictions, reducing pain with movement and restoring function. The health care provider uses a specially designed belt to provide a directed force to the joint in question while the patient is instructed to move the joint through the full range of motion.
Cross Friction Scar Mobilization
A manual technique directed at remodeling scar tissue following surgery, trauma, or injury. The intent is to return to soft tissue to a more normal state (elastic and pliable) to improve mobility and function. Direct hands-to-skin or an instrument to skin may be used at varying intensities and durations to break down the tissue.
“It’s difficult to find a physical therapy place that is able to really focus on the patient secondary to the facility having to see a few patients in the hour. At Sarrica Physical Therapy and Wellness it’s different. The physical therapy itself met all of my expectations. I recommend this place for it’s hard work and dedication towards making people in the community feel better, one patient at a time.”
