We may include passive stretching, such as proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF), soft tissue massage, soft tissue release, and joint mobilizations.
We offer modalities such as Heat and Ice therapy, TENS, IFC, and EMS to assist with managing chronic pain, and reducing muscle tightness and joint stiffness.
