Whether you are a college or high school athlete, recreational athlete, weekend warrior, or casual exerciser; occasional muscle injuries do occur. Prompt and appropriate treatment can make the difference between a quick return to your chosen sport or a lengthy period of pain and disability. The therapists at Orthopedic Physical Therapy Inc. are capable of analyzing the musculoskeletal system, to determine the source of your injury and dysfunction. The proper hands-on treatment such as muscular release, joint mobilization or postural re-alignment can be administered.
Our therapists certified in Trigger Point Dry Needling can use this advanced technique to quickly release muscle knots or trigger points, which will speed up your recovery of motion and reduction in pain. Education on home stretching, strengthening and stabilization exercise will give you the tools you need to prevent recurrence. This will ensure a quick return to pain free function, so that you can resume enjoying golf, tennis, swimming, dancing or any activity you choose. If you have not yet seen a physician for your injury, you are able to start physical therapy under the current Direct Access Laws without a prescription. Call us today at 804-285-0148 to schedule an appointment.
Orthopedic Physical Therapy Inc. recently received the testimonial below from Shira Lanyi of the Richmond Ballet:
“As a professional ballet dancer, I am prone to many acute injuries that affect my daily performance. I have been dancing professionally for 8 years, and in that time I have never had as effective immediate relief from pain as I have from dry needling. Dr. Tracey Adler has treated many of my acute as well as long term injuries that usually require time off from my job. With the help of Dr. Adler, I have been able to perform at my peak level of fitness without pain or restraint. Dry needling has proven to be a very effective tool for me to ensure my best performance.“
