    Therapeutic Cupping

    cupping is a great modality to loosen muscle tissue and increase circulation/blood flow to a specific area. The suction of the cup lifts the layers of dermis and fascia away from muscle. Blood in brought to the surface of the skin, allowing new blood to come in below and “flush” the area, creating an environment for optimum healing.

    Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation

    We utilize Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) to contract a muscle that is not properly firing. This procedure is commonly utilized following surgery when nerve conduction has been compromised from excessive edema, tournicate during the procedure, and disuse. NMES is utilized until normal muscle recruitment is achieved.
