Therapists at BRPT-Lake receive extensive training in the application of evidence-based, individualized manual therapy techniques to reduce pain and restore mobility and function in various skeletal joints and painful areas. We offer a range of programs designed to promote health and wellness while relieving pain and increasing mobility. Our techniques include:
By working to regenerate healthy soft tissue and remove scar tissue, Astym can help restore movement and eliminate pain. Astym is used to treat chronic soft tissue injuries that may not have responded well to traditional therapy options.
Balance training has been shown to be an important and effective part of fall prevention therapy. Physical therapists can help in risk reduction and prevention of falls. Balance exercises are part of a therapy program for patients suffering from vestibular issues and vertigo. A comprehensive balance and dizziness correction program, including therapy intervention, can help you get your life back in balance.
Evidence-based joint mobilization and manipulative techniques are used to reduce pain, restore mobility and improve function.
A hereditary condition, or as a result of damage to the lymphatic system from trauma, surgery or radiation, lymphedema is the gradual onset of protein-rich swelling that can occur in the arms, legs, head, neck and trunk.
Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN) uses thin filament needles that are inserted into the muscle to locate and deactivate “trigger points” of pain to stimulate a healing response. TDN provides a multitude of benefits, including assisting in pain control, restoring motion and function, and reducing muscle tension. TDN accelerates healing and eliminates neuromuscular dysfunction by targeting and relieving specific pains and restoring mobility.
Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) is an exercise-based program designed to promote central nervous system compensation for inner ear deficits. VRT can help with a variety of vestibular problems, including Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) and the unilateral or bilateral vestibular hypofunction (reduced inner ear function on one or both sides) associated with Ménière's disease, labyrinthitis and vestibular neuritis. Even individuals with long-term unresolved inner ear disorders who have undergone a period of medical management with little or no success may benefit. VRT can also help people with an acute or abrupt loss of vestibular function following surgery for vestibular problems.
