Active Release Technique (ART)

AA non-invasive treatment system to locate and quickly resolve soft-tissue disorders. ART works by breaking up adhesions, to increase flexibility and decrease pain and stiffness in muscles and joints.

Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic therapy is a great option to address limitations and ease the discomfort that may occur during weight-bearing therapy. Benefits include improved range of motion and mobility, decreased joint pain, reduced weight-bearing load and stress and increased muscular strength & cardiovascular endurance.

Blood Flow Restriction

A technique utilized to create significant strength and hypertrophy gains in a specific muscle group with the use of a personalized and specific pressure to reduce blood flow to an exercising extremity. To find a therapist who uses the blood flow restriction technique, click here.

Cupping

A technique using plastic cups to create a negative pressure vacuum to increase blood flow and tissue mobilization to increase range of motion, decrease pain and improve tissue healing.

Dry Needling

A technique using the insertion of fine filament needles into the body to treat both chronic and acute issues including muscle tightness, strains, sprains, swelling reduction, pain modulation, muscle activation and overall recovery for overused tissues.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)/Graston

Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) is a technique used to detect and treat soft tissue dysfunction to increase range of motion, eliminate pain and restore normal tissue function.

Graston Technique incorporates a patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively detect and treat scar tissue and restrictions that affect normal function. Benefits of the Graston Technique include a decrease in overall time of treatment, faster rehabilitation and recovery and a reduced need for anti-inflammatory medication.

Lymphedema

The lymphatic system is a network of tissues, vessels and organs that work together to move a colorless, watery fluid called lymph back into your circulatory system (your bloodstream). If any areas of the lymphatic system are removed, damaged or not working properly, the lymph fluid cannot be returned to the blood stream in a normal way. This leads to problems with swelling, cellulitis, pain, and difficulty moving the body, among other unpleasant issues. Lymphedema is a chronic and progressive condition, but can be treated with skilled therapy. TCO offers expert therapists trained as Certified Lymphedema Therapists (CLT) to assist patients in managing the effects of lymphedema. Patients can expect a combination of manual therapy, compression garments, multilayered low stretch bandaging, education, and exercise to be provided to improve or resolve the effects of lymphedema.

Myofascial Release

Fascia is a layer of connective soft tissue that resides under the skin. Fascia is composed of collagen and elastin fibers and it functions to help connect our muscles, bones, organs and entire body into functional units. Due to overuse, injury, surgery, aging, dehydration, and other metabolic issues, fascia may become inflamed, scarred, or dysfunctional. When this occurs, it may lead to restricted movement, problems with posture, or increased pain. Certain manual therapy techniques known as myofascial release, in combination with other modalities and exercise can be very useful in regaining function, improving motion, and reducing pain.
