Orthopedic Bodywork is symptom-specific and plays a huge role in the function of your body systems for pain, rehab, and sports performance.

TMJ/TMD Orofacial Massage: Suffering from TMJ/TMD pain, orofacial pain, jaw pain, temporalis pain, neck pain, forehead pain, headaches, airway pain, tongue posture dysfunction, anxiety, clenching, posture pain, and more?  This service focuses on the dysfunction caused by the temporomandibular joint and its surrounding jaw muscles, other muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue. These elements not only can affect the jaw area but can have a negative impact at other locations in your muscular system, causing you pain, rehab issues, and decreased sports performance. Also, other body systems can present in the dysfunction depending on your level of the TMD dysfunction. There are three categories; acute irritation of the joint capsule, chronic myofascial long-term TMD, and complex chronic TMD with psychological-social triggers. These levels are addressed in the session so that elements for a successful recovery are not missed, and you do not continue to suffer. We treat the soft tissue and give myo-functional retaining, so you have a high chance of the dysfunction not returning.

Scar Therapy:  This is a service that treats the underlying scar tissue below the epidermis, dermis, and deep fascia that can inhibit sports performance, muscle function, lack of pain resolution, and inability to fully rehab. It does not matter if the scar is 30 years old; it can still be dysfunctional and causing you issues.

Hand and Feet Therapy:  These are two separate services, either arms or legs. This service deals with the forearms, hands, lower legs, and feet. They can cause pain, rehab, and sports performance issues from either compensatory or inhibitory and how they interplay and function with their anatomy train lines. We focus on the flexors, extensors, pronators, supinators, wrist, fingers, ankles, and toes. The opposing kinetic chain of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other body systems be involved and enable your path of full healing.

Intraocular Therapy: This service deals with the intraocular eye muscles and how they can significantly affect muscle function throughout the muscular system. Eye muscles can inhibit proper function by facilitating and can keep muscles from firing properly, causing pain throughout the body, stalled rehab recovery, and decreased sports performance issues. We do not go into the eye! We work the surrounding fascia.

Concussion Therapy: This service deals with treating the surrounding muscles that are involved when having a concussion. Not only can the neck muscles be involved, but your eye muscles, along with hyoid muscles, can all play a role in the concussion. We look here for what is facilitating or inhibiting to bring you relief and recovery from the concussion. Years old, concussions can still be causing dysfunction in the body.

Pre and Post Surgery Therapy: This treatment prepares you for surgery and post-surgery. There are several different bodywork styles or modalities involved. We may need to look at the different body systems to ensure they are all functioning properly to allow your surgery to run smoother and bring you a faster recovery.

Pelvic Floor Therapy: The pelvic floor is huge for intrabdominal pressure along with your other intrinsic core muscles, the spinal erectors, and the neck flexors. Not only are they involved in the intraabdominal pressure, but they can inhibit and facilitate the proper function of other muscles throughout your muscular system. Often, poor advice is given to do Kegels or anti Kegels when it is absolutely not appropriate for your body. We use a specialized way to test the quadrants to see if Kegels or anti Kegels are appropriate or not. Women and men often have incontinence that continues due to being told to do Kegels, thinking their pelvic floor was too tight, but it was the exact opposite of what they needed.

Postpartum Bodywork: This is the same as pelvic floor work, but you are postpartum.
