Physical therapists utilize evidence-based approaches to diagnosing and treating a wide variety of impairments. Specifically, those that limit a person’s ability to move or perform functional and athletic activities. These can be in relation to an acute injury, chronic pain, or following surgery. As movement experts, they will address all aspects of movement impairment including mobility, strength, and neuromuscular coordination. This is in order to improve and optimize an individual’s function and performance. The physical therapist will evaluate, diagnose, and treat the movement dysfunctions through a variety of methods including manual and instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization, pain-relieving modalities, and a customized home exercise program.
For individuals who have less pain, or who suffer from chronic or recurrent injury cycles, we offer wellness services focusing on functional movement sequencing and postural restoration. These are available to improve longevity, maintain joint stability, and prevent degenerative musculoskeletal disease states. Corrective exercises will be prescribed in order to improve the body’s maintenance of its center of gravity. This helps to prevent movement compensation, increase core stability, and progress through three major stages:
- Injury Restoration and Prevention
- Return to Function/Activity
- Return to Sport
Optimal nutrition is imperative for good health, efficient body function, body organ activity, and performance. Nutrition is also a key factor in maintaining a healthy weight and a healthy body fat ratio, optimizing and rebuilding strong and healthy tissues, and also key for healthy aging and vitality. Without proper nutrition, significant consequences can ensue both physically, mentally, and even unseen internally. We offer nutrition services with a registered dietician who will categorize and prioritize nutritional deficiencies and imbalances customized to each individual in order to optimize body composition and response to physical exercise and other stressors and lifestyle conditions.
Fluid uses therapeutic massage to help people manage or recover from a wide range of conditions, including fibromyalgia, back and neck pain, arthritis, migraines, diabetic nerve pain, sports and auto-accident related injuries, and even psychological disorders including anxiety and depression (since mental and emotional stress is often neurologically carried into and stored in physical tissues). A professional massage provided by a clinical massage therapist can even ease the effects of chemotherapy. It can also hasten the healing process in post-surgical patients.
Therapeutic massage involves a wide range of manual techniques (provided by clinical massage therapists) that can be used to target specific tissues in your body, including muscles, fascia, lymph nodes, joints, and tendons. Techniques include deep tissue, therapeutic, sports, or pressure point massage. Deep tissue is beneficial to athletes and anyone who needs to relieve tension in their deep musculature. Therapeutic massage is more gentle and targets more superficial tissues, perfect for anyone looking to relax and relieve mental as well as physical stress. Pressure point massage is effective for relieving tender points within the body’s fascial tissue (which protectively encases connective tissue).
At Fluid, we conduct a biomechanical assessment on every member, looking at their posture and movement quality. During the biomechanical assessment and the subsequent massage sessions.
