Kinesio Taping

Kinesio tape is used on problem areas to give your brain more feedback to the injured area. You will feel when the tape is tensioned from moving around, allowing your body to properly stabilize the injured area and increase blood flow for faster healing. The tape is a popular therapy when participating in sports because it will not restrict your movement, is breathable and is permeable to sweat.

Electrical Modalities

Electrical Modality is a form of therapy where pads are placed on the problem tissue and electrical impulses are sent to the area. This non-invasive, painless procedure is used to treat recent injuries and helps ease painful conditions, decreases muscle spasm and reduces inflammation. Regular treatments can cause weak muscles to start firing again to help you improve mobility.

Laser Therapy

Laser technology uses laser diodes to irradiate the problem area in a non-invasive manner. Laser light is absorbed by the cells and promotes healing by initiating a cascade of cellular reactions leading to the restoration of normal cell structure and function. Laser therapy also increases blood supply to the problem area, stimulates collagen and cartilage production as well as muscle and nerve regeneration. This beneficial therapy also decreases inflammation and swelling.
Laser therapy is effective in treating musculoskeletal conditions, arthritis, soft tissue and sports injuries, repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, golf and tennis elbow, and multiple back problems.

Active Rehabilitation

Pinnacle Performance offers rehabilitation programs for clients who have suffered injuries, trauma or strain through daily living, work, sports, etc.

Rehabilitation consists of stretching and strengthening exercises to correct biomechanical imbalances. Each patient will be given a rehab program that is tailored to their health needs abilities so they can work on improving their condition and function for optimum results. Active rehab therapies may include stretches and strengthening exercises that will help to decrease pain, speed healing, as well as prevent future injury.

Rehab is an integral part of treatment after an injury to get you fully functioning more quickly. Of particular note is post-surgical rehab since it is imperative you receive the proper rehabilitative care after a surgery to your musculoskeletal system. Whether you have had an ACL repair, knee/hip replacement or are recovering from a fracture, gradually exercising the joint properly is essential for recovery. Our therapies will help you heal faster and regain your maximal strength and stability.

Orthotics

Orthotics are custom made shoe inserts that are designed to correct misalignments, gait abnormalities and biomechanical problems. Orthotics can help foot and ankle pain as well as resulting issues that work their way up the lower limbs to affect the knees, hips, and lower back. Corrective support is given where needed so the muscles do not need to over-exert to correct problems, which can lead to pain and fatigue.

Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is one of the natural solutions we use to treat pain in the spine, neck and other areas of the body. Chiropractic provides relief from pain; improves mobility and offers solutions that bring results for chronic conditions and injuries.

Active Release Technique

Active Release Therapy is another health therapy that we use to treat acute conditions including muscle pulls, tissue tears or collisions. This non-invasive therapy is performed by shortening the problematic soft tissue. Tension is then applied and tissue is lengthened to break up adhesions and heal injuries faster. A.R.T. also improves micro trauma due to repetitive motions from sports, work or everyday living.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture works by stimulating nerve receptors in skin and muscle. The body releases numerous substances which result in an increase of local blood flow that encourages tissue healing and pain reduction. Benefits include decreased pain and dysfunction to both new and old musculoskeletal problems.

Shockwave Therapy

A shockwave is an intense, but very short energy wave traveling faster than the speed of sound. The basic technology involved with extracorporeal shockwave technology has been used for decades on millions of people.

Therapy sessions are short, and provide successful relief of chronic pain and restores mobility painlessly. Permanent relief typically begins about 72 hours following treatment.

There are no side effects with this non-surgical treatment and it is available at a reasonable cost. Shockwave treatments are non invasive and promote accelerated recovery of injured soft tissue, bone, heel and joint pain.
