Physical Therapy Q & A

ChiroFit

What conditions can physical therapy treat?

The question should be, “What conditions can’t physical therapy treat?” Painful issues in your joints and back are effectively treated with physical therapy. Some specific conditions that respond well to physical therapy include:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Hip pain or loss of hip motion
  • Sciatica and lower back pain
  • Shoulder pain in the rotator cuff or labrum
  • Knee injuries
  • Shoulder injuries

ChiroFit’s doctors use a number of proven strategies to treat these and other issues.

What is Functional Range Conditioning®?

The FRC® system allows the doctors to improve joint health, decrease pain, and increase overall functionality throughout a person’s life. ChiroFit uses FRC with their patients and CrossFit athletes and sees great results in terms of pain relief, range of motion, and reduced injury risk.

What is Functional Range Release®?

FRR® is a system based on finding faults within a person’s range of motion in order to improve the safety and efficiency of their range of motion. It’s a comprehensive system of soft tissue assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation. Our doctors use Functional Range Release as a way to diagnose muscular complaints and dysfunctions and restore proper mobility to joints.

What is Instrument Adhesion Release?

Instrument-assisted therapy remodels damaged and scarred tissue that restricts a person’s range of motion. It’s combined with other manual therapies in the office in order to get patients the best results possible. Using the flat, metallic instrument helps the staff work through muscles that are close to the surface of the skin, including the forearms, knees, feet, and spine.

What is the Functional Movement Screen?

The FMS is a movement screening test used with athletes to measure their risk of injury. By testing multiple functional movements from side to side, the doctors can determine areas of weakness and dysfunction and help to prevent or correct injuries.

What is Manual Adhesion Release?

Manual Adhesion Release diagnoses and treats scar tissue and muscular adhesion. It involves applying force along the fibers of a tissue in order to remodel the tissue. This makes it a more effective technique when compared with foam rolling or other pressure-based methods. Scar tissue or adhesion can form in muscles simply from overuse or sustained poor posture, and it’s one of the most common reasons for dysfunction and pain.
