  • Adjustments help to restore joint mobility, relieve muscle tension, decrease pain and reduce nervous system distress throughout the body.

Acupuncture/Dry Needling
  • Acupuncture treatments are based off Traditional Chinese Medicine’s core belief that blockages in the body’s energy, or chi, causes illness.  Acupuncture removes these blockages and restores balance and harmony to the body.  It is used to treat hundreds of conditions from aches and pains to headaches and anxiety.
  • Dry Needling resets active trigger points in order to decrease pain, relax muscle spasms and increase flexibility.  It is a great way to work on affected muscles from inside-out. 

  Selective Functional Movement Assessments

  • Helps direct treatments towards the goal of better movement.

Flexion – Distraction & Traction
  • Flexion-Distraction and Traction is a very effective, gentle, non-force technique that utilizes a special table in order to decrease pressure from herniated discs on spinal nerves and also alleviate pains associated with spinal degeneration.

Myofascial Release Techniques
  • Addresses localized tightness in muscles and fascia which may impair proper movement causing pain.
  • Pin and stretch decreases tension on nerves, muscles, tendons, and fascia.
  • Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization releases restrictions from scar tissue which increases range of motion and reduces pain.

Rock Taping
  • Rock Tape is a kinesiology tape that relieves pain, aids in proper joint and muscle movement as well as improves blood and lymph circulation.
  • A variety of Rock Tape products available at our office: resistance bands, foam rollers, mobility balls and topical pain relievers.

  Marc Pro Plus
  • The Muscle Activated Recovery Cascade (MARC Pro Plus) electrical muscle stimulation device specifically designed to improve and facilitate muscle performance, speed up muscle recovery and relieve pain between workouts.  The Marc Pro Plus accelerates the post-exercise recovery process by normalizing muscle tissue.
  • The Marc Pro Plus works by creating unique, strong, but completely non-fatiguing muscle contractions that set off a cascading series of physiologic events by stimulating the flow of Nitric Oxide (NO) which causes the blood vessels to dilate bring nutrients and oxygen into the area and new blood vessels to form (angiogenesis).  The device also stimulates the lymphatic and venous systems allowing waste and deoxygenated blood to be moved away from the fatigued area(s).  This effortless exhange of nutrients and wastes, without creating stress or fatigue, accelerates the recovery of the muscle.
  • The Marc Pro Plus is used for temporary pain relief associated with sore and aching muscles in the shoulder, waist, back, neck, arms, and legs due to strain from exercise and normal household and work activities.

 Sports Recovery Therapy
  • Sports Recovery Therapy consists of a variety of mobilization techniques and exercises in order to get your performance and game back On Point!

Therapeutic Exercises
  • A huge component of care consists of providing you with the tools and knowledge in order to help prevent future aches and pains.  This is achieved by prescribing specific therapeutic exercises and stretches to strengthen weak or inhibited tissues and loosen tight or overactive ones.

Nutrition
  • Food is thy medicine, or in some people’s case thy poison.  It is very important to consider what you are ingesting when caring for your body’s neuromusculoskeletal system to help speed up the healing process.  Our approach entails identifying and conquering any nutritional deficiencies or imbalances that may be holding you back from moving well, feeling well and living well.  It is common knowledge that heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer have all been linked to poor diet and nutrition.  In order to be On Point, we must eat On Point!

Supplement Recommendations
  • Sometimes we need a little boost in the right direction in order to speed up the healing process or conquer our athletic hurdles.  It is a common occurrence these days for people to put excess stress and demands on their bodies to a point where a good diet and proper rest just isn’t enough.  This is why we recommend and offer products that have undergone extensive quality control testing and are made of the purest of earth-grown nutrients.  For more information please visit our online store at: https://mkonopka.metagenics.com/
