A manual therapy technique using small mono-filament needles to release trigger points in the muscular system as well as generate pain relief and a healing response.
THERAGUN/ INSTRUMENT ASSISTED MASSAGE
Multiple soft tissue massage options are utilized to increase blood flow, decrease pain and improve movement. These options include theragun selective soft-tissue release, instrument assisted soft tissue massage, myofascial cupping and manual massage.
JOINT MANIPULATION/ MOBILIZATION
Options including high-velocity thrust manipulation and graded joint mobilization are utilized to improve movement and decrease pain.
MUSCLE ENERGY TECHNIQUES
Small stretches and contractions are facilitated by Dr. Edwards to improve spinal and joint alignment by using the patients own muscle contraction force and postural positions.
A large variety of movement-based as well as strength and return to sport exercise is utilized to ensure a maximal healing response and improvement in function. Each patient is given a selective home exercise program to supplement exercise during therapy sessions and manual therapy.
FITNESS TRAINING/ INJURY PREVENTION
EAK offers fitness/wellness training that also incorporates injury prevention. These programs are for athletes and active people who want to prevent injury, return to formal exercise following an injury, build muscle, improve mobility and become educated on appropriate exercise planning. We have group options including our "EAK Ready" programming as well as individual options including our "Kinetic Built" programming. These programs are individualized to fit your training goals and/or specific sport.
RECOVERY AND WELLNESS
EAK offers recovery and wellness services to help enhance athletic and active recovery. These services can also be provided in a maintenance format and include modalities such as dry needling, tool assisted soft tissue massage, joint manipulation, "movement check in" and many more.
BLOOD FLOW RESTRICTION/ CERTIFIED MODERN STRENGTH TRAINING
EAK utilizes blood flow restriction, which involves establishing a limb occlusion pressure and then competing hypertrophy/strength training activity in a restricted state. This allows for increased muscle gain and strength improvements with less weight and safer movement. This is a fantastic modality for post operative conditions and for metabolic muscle gain.
FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT SCREEN CERTIFIED
EAK is certified in the functional movement screen/ The FMS. This is a movement screen that allows our clinicians to identify areas of weakness, areas of poor mobility and areas of poor motor programming. The FMS has evidence-proven markers that help to reduce injury risk and return athletes to sport safely. It also helps to guide the clinician and patient into a corrective exercise strategy.
