Here’s how we help:
Orthopedic & Manual Therapy
Orthopedic & Manual Therapy at BRPT includes hands-on techniques used to reduce pain and improve range-of-motion and flexibility to stiff joints and muscles in any part of the body.
This type of therapy can include mobilization, manipulation, soft tissue techniques, and muscle stretching. Both mobilization and manipulation are key components of Manual Therapy as they restore the power of movement to joints & associated muscles.
Research has shown that the most effective physical therapy treatments involve a combination of customized Manual Therapy interventions combined with targeted exercise.
Orthopedic & Manual Therapy is used to treat both non-surgical and post-surgical patients dealing with:
- Muscle weakness, tension and imbalance
- Spinal and other joint alignment dysfunction
- Post-operative or inflammatory swelling
- Joint and muscle pain
- Tendonitis and bursitis
- And more
Trigger Point Dry Needling
BRPT offers this effective physical therapy treatment which utilizes filament needles to make changes in myofascial trigger points. Myofascial trigger points are “knots” in muscles that can contribute to pain and decreased muscle function.
Dry needling is based on anatomy and neurophysiology, and its aim is to needle the altered or dysfunctional trigger points in order to improve or restore function.
Trigger Point Dry Needling can help to:
- Resolve seemingly hopeless issues, particularly for those who are dealing with chronic or persistent pain syndromes
- Allow you to perform your desired daily tasks, attend work, and participate in recreational activities you love, without pain
- Return you to your optimal level of function very quickly
ASTYM is soft tissue regenerative therapy that helps rebuild and heal the soft tissues of the body. It offers relief from pain and restricted movement, helping you leverage your body’s natural ability to heal itself. With a 90% success rate, ASTYM has offered patients a non-surgical alternative to help combat:
- Sprains and strains
- Joint stiffness
- Lack of mobility
- Tennis elbow
- Knee pain
- Heel pain
- And more
Balance and mobility training, along with strengthening exercises for the legs, help address symptoms associated with instability and falling.
A new, cutting-edge treatment called Blood Flow Restricted Training (BFRT) has been found to improve muscular strength even in the presence of pain and other limiting symptoms. BFRT can help you build strength and get back to the activities you love.
Occupational and physical therapy can help patients fighting cancer by improving your mobility, combating fatigue, reducing pain, and helping to maintain strength and endurance.

Frequently untreated, chronic pain symptoms include headache, lower back pain, arthritis pain, and neurogenic pain. BRPT focuses on two critical elements when it comes to alleviating your pain: education and movement. The combination of therapeutic neuroscience education (TNE) and movement plans designed to address your unique symptoms has had significant success in helping patients deal with persistent pain.
Evidence-based joint mobilization and manipulative techniques are used to reduce pain, restore mobility and improve function.
Lymphedema treatment is designed to reduce pain, swelling, and other symptoms through a combination of special therapies and exercises. These treatments are provided by a certified lymphedema therapist (CLT) in an outpatient setting.
Our therapists provide excellent medical care for a variety of foot and leg issues like bursitis, heel pain, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendon injuries, bunions, ankle sprains, and athletic injuries.
