Life is always better when we move well and feel good. That is why all patients at Ken Caryl Spine & Sport undergo a comprehensive movement assessment when beginning care. If an individual is suffering from acute or chronic pain then a Selective Functional Movement Assessment will be performed. The more athletically based Functional Movement Screen is performed when normal movement does not produce pain and an individual is looking to improve performance.
Active Release Technique
Some people think of ART as a massage technique and they are partially right. ART is a patented and elite way to examine and treat soft tissues of the body. Our techniques will pinpoint specific structures that need help in the body whether it is a muscle, tendon, ligament or even a joint capsule. We have the ability to isolate and treat structures as large as paraspinal muscles in the low back to structures as small as ligaments and joint capsules in the hand and feet.
Because of the nervous system’s control over the entire body, the muscles and joints of the spine influence the health of the body as a whole. With over eighteen years of clinical experience, Dr. Kurland practices the most safe, gentle and effective techniques to bring the spine back in normal alignment which allows all parts of the body to heal faster and more efficient than ever before.
Technology has come a long way in helping us treat conditions affecting the muscles and joints of the body. Ken Caryl Spine & Sport has invested heavily in two different kinds of cutting edge laser therapy to help patients get back in the game faster than ever before. We offer both Low Level Laser Therapy and Deep Tissue Laser Therapy. Both lasers work on the principle of photobiomodulation to accelerate the healing process on a cellular level. Ask the Doctor which one is right for you.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization techniques can be thought of as a form of massage therapy. However, instead of hands being used to treat the tissues, stainless steel instruments are utilized not only scan the tissues, but also treat the tissues in a way that the human hand cannot.
Sometimes the body requires reenforcement in between visits. Sometimes an individual just needs some tissue support to help normalize pain and discomfort. Our techniques using Rocktape accomplish both. Whether utilizing Performance Taping Techniques or Fascial Movement Techniques, Rocktape can help extend the positive effects of a treatment for days.
Corrective Exercise Program
For long term results, we need to address our current movement deficits. Whether your body showed a need for mobility or stability or both, Ken Caryl Spine & Sport will provide key exercise protocols and mobility strategies to correct the problem. With your personalized corrective strategies being emailed directly to your account, a quick explanation or even video review will always be at your fingertips to ensure your success in recovery.
