Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation SERVICES OFFERED AT PHYSICAL MEDICINE OF OKLAHOMA

 

Functional Muscle Release

The main goal of Functional Muscle Release (FMR) is to restore normal range of motion, function, and decrease pain as efficiently as possible through a combination of highly specific hands-on manual therapy, stretching, and muscle activation. FMR can rapidly fix injuries including sprains, strains, and tendonitis.

Common Injuries Treated with FMR:

  • Neck Pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Back Pain
  • Muscle Strain
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Hip Pain
  • Knee Pain

Corrective Exercises

Corrective exercises serve as a means of rehabilitation to build particular muscles, improve posture, assist in healing after injury, and prevent potential injury from occurring.

Experiencing pain in one area of your body can cause inadvertent pain in other areas due to straining. Corrective exercise is a method that helps to strengthen your body. These exercises may include use of foam rollers, therapy bands, strengthening equipment, and exercises that will allow for continued rehab at home.

Corrective exercises can lead to better comfort and result in pain relief. Proper stretching can improve maneuverability and balance. Corrective exercises work to move beyond correcting symptoms such as pain and instead work to find a solution to eliminate pain. Call to schedule you free consultation today.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) is a non-invasive new range tool which enables clinicians to efficiently locate and treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction. 

IASTM is performed with ergonomically designed instruments that detect and treat fascial (connective tissues) restrictions, encourage rapid localization, and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis/adhesion, “knots”, chronic inflammation, or degeneration.  The ergonomic design of these instruments provides the clinician with the ability to locate restrictions and allows the clinician to treat the affected area with the appropriate amount of pressure. 

Adhesions within the soft tissue which may have developed as a result of surgery, immobilization, repeated strain, or other mechanisms, are broken down allowing full functional restoration to occur. IASTM can be used to treat the following conditions:

  • Medial Epicondylitis, Lateral Epicondylitis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Neck Pain
  • Plantar Fascitis
  • Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
  • Patellar Tendinitis
  • Tibialis Posterior Tendinitis
  • Heel Pain /Achilles Tendinitis
  • DeQuervain's Syndrome
  • Post-Surgical and Traumatic Scars
  • Myofascial Pain and Restrictions
  • Musculoskeletal Imbalances
  • Chronic Joint Swelling
  • Ligament Sprains
  • Muscle Strains
  • Non-Acute Bursitis
  • Back Pain
  • Trigger Finger
  • Hip Pain (Replacements)
  • T Band Syndrome
  • Shin Splints
  • Chronic Ankle Sprains
  • Acute Ankle Sprains (Advanced Technique)
  • Scars (Surgical, Traumatic)

SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY

Spinal Decompression Therapy was developed to effectively treat lower back pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or degenerated discs allowing patients to return to a more active lifestyle.

In the past, a patient suffering from disc problems were usually given pain medications, instructed to refrain from physical activities, referred for physical therapy, and when they weren't progressing they were sent for spinal surgery- until now. Spinal Decompression Therapy is alternative to spinal surgery.

RAPID RELEASE TECHNOLOGY

Rapid Release Technology allows users to regain the joy of painless movement by targeting pain and tight muscles with vibration technology. 

Targeted vibration can quickly and efficiently increase local range of motion, alleviate pain, and improve range of motion. Rapid release technology treatment can speed up overall recovery and only takes three to five minutes per area. Call to schedule your free consultation.
