This type of manual therapy uses stretching and deep pressure to treat soft tissue injuries like sprains, strains, tendonitis, and stress injuries. It relaxes tense muscles and reduces scar tissue formation by breaking up rigid tissue and increasing blood supply to the affected area.
Electrical stimulation, or e-stem, uses electrodes attached to the skin to deliver impulses that make muscles contract. This method is effective in treating pain and spasms in the muscles and in preventing atrophy in those with injuries.
At PTS, we use transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), which uses a low voltage of electrical stimulation to provide pain relief. The electrodes are placed near the nerves or at trigger points to block or change your perception of pain.
This collection of hands-on therapy treats a range of conditions through techniques like exercise to help patients experiencing pain, stiffness, soreness, or a limited range of motion.

Therapeutic exercises are designed to improve strength and reduce pain by restoring function and flexibility. Exercises may include endurance training, neuromotor activities, agility training, and even breathing exercises.
Applying heat or cold to musculoskeletal and soft tissue injuries helps decrease pain and inflammation. By changing the temperature of the tissue, a biological response is induced, leading to an increase in oxygen, blood flow, and metabolic rate.
Splinting involves applying a rigid or flexible orthopedic device to help support or realign bones and joints. This method helps prevent and correct deformities and improve more fluid motion, as it protects an injured body part from moving out of place and incurring further damage.
This type of physical therapy works to improve the strength in your joints and muscles, so you can stand and walk with better balance and posture. By building your endurance with different exercises and developing your muscle memory with repetitive work, you can gain better mobility over time.
Ergonomics focuses on helping people prevent injury by improving the way they move and function throughout their daily life. It involves using certain tools and body mechanics to maximize efficiency and remove behaviors that may be adding to the pain and discomfort.
