Orthopedic Physical Therapy Q & A

What are the types of specialized physical therapy?

Some of the techniques the Town Center Orthopaedics physical therapy team might use to treat you include:

  • Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (Graston® Technique)

    • Your physical therapist uses instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) techniques to improve joint mobility by treating issues such as scar tissue buildup (fibrosis), inflammation, and fascial restrictions in your soft tissues.
  • The specialized instruments your physical therapist uses allow them to penetrate deep into the tissues. Breaking up fibrotic tissue and reducing the number of damaged fibers results in an improved range of motion and reduction in pain.
  • Functional dry needling (FDN)

    • Trigger point dry needling uses a solid needle that penetrates your skin to access myofascial trigger points in your muscles. These trigger points are tightened fibers within a muscle that cause pain and tenderness and can limit movement.
  • Dry needling reduces muscle tension and improves pain control. It also helps to speed up a return to active physical therapy.
  • The Town Center Orthopaedics physical therapy team also offers specialized sports physical therapy services like Sportsmetrics™ – the first ACL injury prevention program that helps prevent female athletes from incurring serious knee ligament injuries.
Are other physical therapy services available?
