Functional Range® Release technique, or FR® Release is an advanced, and comprehensive system of soft tissue assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation used by some of the most highly regarded manual therapists around the world.
Maitland Manual Therapy
The Maitland manual therapy approach is based primarily on the assessment and treatment of the patient’s signs/symptoms, respecting the diagnosis, understanding the pathology and using biomechanical knowledge when applicable.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
Active Release Technique®, or ART®, is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system and movement based technique that targets muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization or Simply IASTM is a new range of tool which enables clinicians to efficiently locate and treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction.
Joint mobilization is a form passive movement of a skeletal joint. It is aimed at a synovial joint to achieve a therapeutic effect.
Therapeutic Exercise: Exercise is one of our most commonly used modalities of treatment. Exercise can be used to improve deficits in mobility, strength, and stability as well as overall movement patterns. When used properly, therapeutic exercise is one of the best ways to improve your body’s movement capacity and resiliency to aid in decreasing the risk of future injury.
Functional Range Conditioning® is a comprehensive joint training system based in scientific principals and research that aims to develop joint mobility and strength while creating excellent body control to promote healthy and resilient joints.
The system combines joint mobilization, strength training, and deep fascial stretching to increase athletic performance, reduce risk of injury, and speed recovery after exercise. The exercises use the Mobility Stick as a tool to improve range of motion, muscle activation, coordination, and body awareness to build a strong foundation for better movement.

Movement Screens and Analysis: Movement analysis is one the primary evaluations tools we use as physical therapists. By looking at how your body moves as a whole, rather than just looking at and injured body part, we are able to locate any movement deficits that may be contributing to your pain or decreased function. Our therapists will choose from a breadth of movement analysis methods that best fit your case. Check out the links below for information on some of our most commonly used methods.
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a pre-participation screening tool designed to identify compensatory movement patterns that are indicative of increased injury risk and inefficient movement that causes reduced performance.
When working with individuals who present with running related injuries or want to maximize their running performance, tracking variables such as ground reaction force, loading rates, contact time, stride length and stride rate can be extremely useful. Our DorsaVi Professional Suite wearable sensor technology allows us to do this and more.
TPI seeks to educate professionals and the playing public on the importance of the body and how it relates to the golf swing.TPI does not believe in one way to swing a club, rather in an infinite number of swing styles. But, we do believe there is one efficient way for every player to swing and it is based on what the player can physically do. We are proud to have TPI certified clinicians at our clinic.
The Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) is a comprehensive movement based diagnostic system used to classify movement patterns and direct manual therapy and therapeutic exercise interventions.
